Oct 20: Letter Pp Week!

Letter Pp Week

 

We are continuing our unit on “My Family, My Community.” This week is the letter “Pp” week! Students will meet Pippa Pig and we will discuss words that begin with Pp, identify the letter & letter sound, read stories, and complete activities with words that begin with Pp. We will also be discussing community jobs. Please chat with your child about jobs that your family members have and how they help the community.

This time of year is great to talk about pumpkins! Students will learn and act out the “Five Little Pumpkins” rhyme using puppets. We will also read the story Stone Soup and make our own soup! Friday is PAJAMA DAY! Students will wear an appropriate pair of pajamas to school, we will pop popcorn and watch a Winnie the “P”ooh movie. This should be so much fun!! Please see the letter in your child’s folder.

Some suggestions are poster board, photographs, drawings, long roll of paper, stickers, etc. Timelines are due Friday.

Benchmarks for science and social studies will be next week. Please study all guides, old test, and quizzes that have been sent home in the past as the tests will cover all skills taught thus far. In math we continue to need reinforcement with addition and subtraction, while moving on to patterns both repeating and growing. Our word study this week will be words ending in -ck with a mixture of vowel sounds.

Thank you so much for the generous M&M contributions. We have some left that will be used for Halloween. although we do not have Halloween parties, we do have a big pumpkin celebration and are in need of pumpkin donations and volunteers for the 31st. Please let me know if you can help.
