We had a great time this week watching caterpillars, learning about butterflies, and eating dirt. Well the yummy kind of dirt we made at our cooking center with Will's mom. The kids made dirt and added worms and a fun flower that we can play with at home. We have been practicing using the numbers and letters we have learned this year. We also learned about sentences, questions and exclamations as well as punctuation marks.
Next week we will learn about plants but continue to do many other "spring" activities. We will keep reviewing and working with letters and sounds to sound out words and sentences when reading and writing. Let's put all of this hard work to use!! Have your child write every day even if it is just one sentence.
After we do plants next week, we will do a wild west unit and have a fun Western day on 4/29 with many outside activities. The kids can wear jeans, jean shorts, or a jean skirt if they want to. They can also wear a cowboy hat or boots. Bandannas can be used as belts, on hats or around their necks as well.
4/30 zoo field trip, 5/7 field day
One thing we have been doing that the kids love is taking turns pointing to the sight words to make sentences. To be sure you have them all, so far we have:
We are adding "not" and "play"
and the number words
all color words
