Here’s what happening this week:
As some of you may have heard, we are learning about the rhinoceros. This came about because there was a picture of one in a book and many of us didn’t know what it was! So, now we will. Also, we had an “interesting” discussion about how babies are born, etc. Just in case anyone came home talking about it. If you have any questions, please let me know!
Rhinoceros fun facts:
-They live alone, but a baby will live with the mother up to a year
-The white rhino has square lips (!) which helps it to eat grass. Other rhinos eat leaves and foliage (new word!).
Here’s what else we’re doing:
Sight words: you, on
Still working on our vowels
We’ll be using the month of April to finish up our number sense unit
I also want to take a minute to stress how important it is that you read with your child when they bring their guided reading books home from Tues.-Thurs. It takes less than 5 minutes a night, but the benefits I see in the classroom are tremendous! When they are not doing their reading at home it truly does effect their reading work in the class. Thanks!
Our Spring Concert is May 5. There will be more information coming home this week. I hope you plan to attend as the children have been working so hard and it looks to be a very cute performance!
Something to take note of: For our end of the year field trip, we will be travelling to King’s Castle. More information will go home as we get closer to the actual date.
Here’s to a great week!
