Can you believe what a great weekend we had? So lovely. I know I had more than my fill of lobster, and it was worth it!
Here’s what’s up for this week:
We are looking at lower case letters.
We are reviewing all of our sight words. If you would like a complete list of our words, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will reply.
We will begin thinking about dirt and its properties. Should be fun. Be looking for a baggie to go home that they will fill with dirt from your house!
If you have any items for our “Pamper Yourself” basket, please send them in.
I will not be sending home Guided Reading Books any longer. With the weather getting warmer, and the evenings staying lighter longer, it should be nice for you to get outside and play.
Here are some great articles along the lines of play. Check them out!
And lastly, I know many of us are getting new shoes as we have outgrown our old ones. Please, please, please, if you child cannot independently tie their own shoes, please do not send them in with tie shoes! Independence is so important for our learning at this age, and having to ask the teacher to help them get ready to go outside takes away from that. If they have tie shoes, one alternative is to buy the shoe lace elastics. They are curly, go into a shoe like a shoe lace, but they can slide the shoes on and off. I know, in the past, I’ve bought them at Wal Mart for my own kids. Thanks.
Have a great week!
