This Week's Fun...

We will working with the story One Little Mouse in Reading Street this week.  With the story, One Little Mouse, we will be continuing to identify the characters, setting, and plot.  However, we will also focus on the sequence of events in the story.  When reading with your child at home, it is a great idea to ask them about the characters, setting, and plot!

One area Miss Todd and I continue to find to be troublesome for some children are the sight words.  These words are progressively becoming harder and this week we have a new set.  Our sight words this week are: one, two, three, four, and five.  Please make sure to take 5-10 minutes each night to practice sight words, especially on the "off days."  This will allow learning to continue and will allow your child more practice with words.  Please reference the pink sheet we sent home last week or our blog posts last week - these had all of our sight words for the entire year!

 In math, we are continuing our work with the teen numbers and building numbers.  Children should be able to read and write numbers to 20 and be able to compare these numbers.  This week, we will also be introducing the concept of addition.  We have touched on addition previously, but will delve more deeply into the concept this week!  We are very excited to begin working on this skill with the children!

Over the past few weeks, we have been discussing healthy living and healthy eating habits.  Hopefully, the children have shared with some of the healthy activities we have explored and healthy food choices we have discussed.  The children did a phenomenal job during our Friday Fun Days with jumping rope.  It was wonderful to see them motivated to won keeping their heart healthy.

Thank you, again, for continuing to make this such a successful year!
