|Phonics: We have added our third special sound chart. I will send those home and they should be going over them every night. They are learning how to circle special sounds as well as reading words with those sounds in them. We have also been doing reading groups and they are doing great!
When there is one vowel in a word, it makes the short vowel sound and we put a smiley face on top. (cat, cup, bag, etc.)
When there are two vowels in a word, the first vowel says its name and the second vowel is silent. We put a stick on top the first and we cross out the second. ( cape, read, main, etc.)
Numbers: We are going over time, money, adding, what comes before and after numbers, and number words. We have introduced time to the quarter hour. (1:15, 2:15, etc.) We are beginning subtraction this week as well.
Events: April 30th– May4th– Standardized Testing for 1st-8th grade. We are not a part of this. We just have to be very quiet.
May 3rd– National Day of Prayer and Field trip to the Zoo for Kindergarten
May 5th– Victory’s Got Talent Talent Show
|Don’t Forget: Please don’t forget to check your child’s folder each day. I send home important information in the folders and the behavior chart/ homework chart need to be initialed everyday. Also, please check snack schedule each day to know when it is your day. The pink bag will also be sent home for your day as a reminder. Tuesday is a fundraiser we are having called “Caps for Kids”. If your child bring in $1, they may wear a cap on Tuesday. Remember Zoo field trip money and permission forms are due this Wednesday, April 25th. I will also make the date to turn in baby pictures and pictures from the year by April 30th.
