Good Afternoon!!

We will have our Easter Egg Hunt Thursday, April 18 at 10:30 am.  Please send in a dozen pre-packed plastic eggs and write your child’s name on each egg. Please let me know if you have any questions. 🙂

Reading   We will start Unit 10: The ABC Book.  We will focus on letters X, x. Y, y, Z, and z. This is our last reading unit for the year!  We will be practicing writing our letters and name. We will clap out words to see how many syllables certain words have.

Math- We will continue doing math activities using dice. We will continue practice writing our numbers. We will continue to learn the concept of more than and less than, and equal.  We will continue to learn the parts of the calendar (days of the week, months of the year, yesterday, today, and tomorrow).  We will be using manipulatives to count objects to 20.   We will continue with drawing shapes and recognizing how many sides each shape has. 

Religion– We will introduce Lesson 24: Palm Sunday.   We will also, continue our discussion about Lent and coloring our Stations of the Cross booklet.  We will continue to practice the Hail Mary, Our Father, the Sign of the Cross, the Glory Be, Guardian Angel Prayer, and genuflecting.

Science- We will read “Here Comes the Sunflower” in My Big World with Clifford. We will learn what a sunflower needs to grow.  We will continue to observe our green bean plants. I will be sending home green bean plants this week!! They are getting so tall!!

Social Studies– We will continue our unit, Where We Live? We will focus on the state we live in, Maryland.

Reminders:

*Pre-K will be going to Stations of the Cross, Thursday at 2:15 pm.

*I know rest time can be challenging for the students who do not take naps any more. Students may have one stuffed animal that does not make noise and/or a book for rest time. 

*Please remember library books are due on Mondays.  If your child finishes their book before the following Monday, they may return it earlier.

*Please check your child’s folder daily.
