Winters Words for the Week!!!

“We need to learn what we need to learn, know what we need to know, and do what we need to do.”  ?Thomas S. Monson

This quote speaks volumes. Our time together is quickly coming to a close. We have been taking benchmark tests, and in class assessments. The State SOL Tests are around the corner. We are focusing on preparing to take these end of year assessments. We have two weeks before our first State SOL Test. I am confident the students will be ready to put their best foot forward. I have shared the dates of the tests with you in my newsletter. Please review each subject heading on my blog. (there is key information under each subject heading) It is imperative the students stay focused and ready to begin working each and every day. We will be reviewing and continuing to work each day up until the end of school. Please add the key dates below to your calendar. As always if you need to talk to me please don’t hesitate to call, e-mail, send in a note,or drop by. Take care and have a great week!!

April 20: Letter Ee Week!

What we are learning

This week we will continue with the theme “Growing and Changing.” The letter this week is Ee.   I have reminded the students how tricky the vowel sounds are as the “e” sound is similar to “i” and “a” sounds.  We will discuss how we can care for the Earth for Earth Day on Wednesday. We will discuss recycling and sort recyclable objects on Tuesday.

Also, we will study the lifecycle of a butterfly and describe the phases.

The children have really enjoyed seeing each other as babies. Thanks for the pictures!

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).

Reminders

  • Send in an empty recyclable item (newspaper, plastic, aluminum, etc) by Tuesday.
  • Please send a plastic water/soda bottle as we will be making a maraca out of it.
  • Please send in a baby picture of your student for display.

Home Activities

Ee Egg – Draw an egg on drawing paper. Write Ee at the top of the paper and Egg at the bottom. Point out that egg begins with e. Look for Ees in the newspaper and magazine headlines with your child. Cut them out and help your child glue them on the egg. Also look for pictures that begin with the letter E or have your child draw the pictures.

Counting – Practice counting to at least 20 and counting up to 20 objects.

Numbers – Please discuss numbers and have your student identify numbers as much as possible.
