What we are learning
This week is our last week in the theme “Construction Zone” and we will study the letter Rr. We will talk about Valentine’s Day, sort candy hearts and read stories. We will discuss the color red and rectangle shape. Also, we will make a rainbow and a rooster craft. We will read stories about how building things requires planning and working together. Please continue to review all the other letters and letter sounds taught this year (S,T,P,O,Y.B,U,F,X, W,Z,M,A). We have already learned half of the alphabet! Please continue to review the letters and letter sounds that we have learned so far. It is important for your child to know all the letters and letter sounds when he/she goes to Kindergarten next year.
This week we will learn the sight words “I see a.” We will be discussing, identifying, writing and using these words in a sentence. Please work on identifying this word in print and writing it on paper.
Looking for Rr – look for Rr’s on food packaging such as cereal boxes and labels on cans. You can also look for Rr’s on signs around your neighborhood. Encourage your child to tell you whether the letter is an uppercase R or a lowercase r.
Reading together – We will listen to the story The Three Little Pigs in class. You can read other versions of this story with your child. Talk about how the stories are alike and different.
Stories to discuss – The Little Red Hen, Little Red Riding Hood
