What we are learning
This is the last week for our theme, “Growing and Changing.” We will read stories about how plants and animals grow and change in the spring. We will listen to the classic folktale Jack and the Beanstalk. You can read other versions of this story with your child and talk about how the stories are alike and different. The new letter this week is the letter Dd. We will read about the Ugly Duckling, play dominos and make a domino snack.
Sight words to review: a, like, see, I, he, she, is, it, in

Please continue to review all of the letters and letter sounds we have learned so far (Ss,Tt,Pp,Oo,Yy,Bb,Uu,Ff,Xx,Ww,Zz,Mm,Aa,Rr,Cc,Qq,Vv,Jj,Hh,Ii,Gg,Ee).
This Friday, May 1, we will be having Dog Day. Please have your child bring in a stuffed dog that will fit in his/her book bag. If you have a dog as a pet, your child can bring in a picture. We will be reading about dogs and sharing the items that each student brings in. (I have plenty extra dog stuffed animals your student may choose from if you don’t have one or forget.)
Field Day is May 8… Please have your child wear a BLUE shirt. Send a bottle of water for hydration. Apply sunscreen before school, if needed.
