Winters’ Words for the Week!!!

“What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge and not knowledge in pursuit of the child.”  –George Bernard Shaw

We are continuing our pursuit of knowledge. We have a busy month ahead of us. Please note we only have 34 days left together before the end of the school year. We will be welcoming the month of May in on Friday. In class we are preparing for the upcoming tests that will begin the second week of May. I am confident the students are ready and will do the best that they can on the tests. I have put a great amount of information under each subject heading on my blog. My newsletter will also have this information. I have listed the dates for our state tests on my blog and on my newsletter. There are also several key dates  below that I am hopeful  you will add to your calendar. As always if you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, write a note, send an e-mail, or come by, and I will do the same. Take care and have a great week!


A. Winters

April 27: Letter Dd Week!

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

New: me, we

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).

Dog Day

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.)
