We Are All Abuzz About…..(Apr 28th)

 

Dear Parents,

We are winding down the school year.  I can’t believe that we only have six weeks left of school.  With that said, I am looking forward to our end of the year activities.  On the agenda are:  Field Day, Awards Assemblies and a picnic to celebrate!  My FAVORITE year end activity is our classroom awards assembly.  This year, we are going to roll out the red carpet and have Candy Awards.  This will begin in the afternoon, after the morning school-wide awards and picnic lunch.  Everyone will get an award in the classroom.  :O)

We Are All Abuzz About:

·      Counting to 100

·      Counting by 2’s and 5’s

·      Recognizing and writing numbers 0 – 50

·      Writing skills – We will write short sentences, understand that sentences begin with a capital letter and end with a punctuation mark

·      Life Cycle of plants.

·      Subtraction, we will begin to learn about taking away.

·      Sounding out words to read short sentences

·      Sight words:  May, play, say, away, gray

·      L blends sort:  sl, cl, bl, pl and fl

·      Decoding words beginning with l blends

·      We will learn about recycling and taking care of our Earth
