Weekly News

Hello Families,

 

Open House is coming up this Wednesday evening April 25th! Every family should attend if possible! The children have been working hard getting things ready for you to see! Your child will take you on a personal tour of our classroom and they will also show their learning with you! The classroom doors open from 5-6pm! 

 

Our week was buzzing with Bee learning! On Tuesday we went to science lab and explored the fascinating world of bees! Many thanks to Shannon Jorgensen for bringing a fantastic bee lesson and honey to share with the kids. The children were so excited to learn about this insect! We read so many informational texts about bees this week! We also learned a few bee songs and poems, created our own bees that are “buzzing” around our classroom and wrote bee facts!

 

In phonics this week we worked with the “ee” sound in words. We called this vowel pair, “the screaming ee.” Next week we work with “ing.” Each week when we learn about a new sound that letters can make the children have fun finding them in their reading, and they try to use them in their writing! 

 

In math, we are working on word problems. The mathematicians have to come up with an answer and then “show” their thinking by drawing a picture, or talking about how they came up the answer. They are quickly learning that there can be multiple ways to find an answer! We are also using manipulatives to add and subtract!

 

The children are still enjoying this unit, and can’t wait to share their work with you at Open House this Wednesday evening!

 

See everyone this Wednesday evening from 5-6 for Open House!- Kathy

I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, telephone calls, weekly newsletters, emails and parent teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way is through my school email.
