What we are learning
We loved studying the letter Rr! This week we begin a new unit called “In the City, In the Country” and we will study the letter Cc. We will focus on the country (farm) this week by discussing animals and features of a farm and also discussing the difference in the county and the city. We will read farm stories, while discussing that much of our food products come from animals! We will also read The Very Hungry Caterpillar, sequence what he ate in the story and make a caterpillar ABC pattern. 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,R).
This week we will continue 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.
Country Books – Your child will listen to a story titled “The Billy Goat in the Garden.” Ask him/her to tell about the naughty billy goat. Read other books about farm animals, discuss and re-tell.
Country or Cc Poster – Have your child practice cutting by cutting out pictures from magazines of things you would find in the country or on the farm. Make it a sort by having two columns labeled “Country” and “City.” Then, your child can cut out farm and city pictures and glue them under the correct heading. He/she could also cut out letter Cc’s and glue them to a piece of paper to make a Cc collage.
