April News I hope everyone had a restful Spring Break. The theme for most of February/March was centered around friendship and kindness. We talked about how to be a good friend, solving problems peacefully and when it is appropriate to ask for adult help. Also, our class earned 100 Star Awards and we celebrated with a 100 party!
This month we will continue to focus on a new letter each day. The children will practice correct letter formation and spelling 'Consonant / vowel / Consonant words. We are also beginning to talk about reading strategies and sight words. In Math, we are exploring 7,8,9 and 10; printing numerals to 20 and continue to practice counting to 100. We also ‘play’ with counting different ways (by 2’s, 5’s or 10’s). One important skill for children to learn is called subitizing. This is the skill of knowing how many are in a set of items without counting. Dice are excellent for children beginning to subitize. So break out the Snakes and Ladders or any other game that involves dice for your next Family Game Night. For the next few months our major theme will be Spring; sub-themes may include: plants/seeds, The Farm/baby animals, oviparous animals and insects. Community Helpers We are looking for volunteers who would like to take part in our Community Helpers Day. We have an ambulance driver(and ambulance)and possibly a Fire Fighter(and Fire Truck).
