As we were doing our calendar this morning, the children were surprised to find that there will not be much left in the month of April when they return from the Easter break! Please have them bring their Lenten bouquets to school’ when we come back, as we will do some reflective writing. In math, we will conclude time and go on to geometric shapes. We’ll talk about recycling, reusing and reducing, map skills as we learn the continents and oceans, and plants.
Our next Reading Celebration will be APRIL 27th, followed by our final — and very special — Reading Celebration on MAY 25th. We hope you’ll be able to make that one, as the children will be reading to you! Finally, the PTPO is sponsoring a Literacy Night on Tuesday, April 25. Please consider coming to learn how you can nurture your child’s love of reading. Research shows that children who enjoy reading are curious learners and successful students!
SPECIAL REQUEST! We have a lot of runny noses in our class, but we’re out of tissues! If you did not bring them in when I requested paper towels, tissues or hand sanitizer, could you send in a box or two? At this rate, we won’t make it through the year!
After the Easter break, I will no longer preview the dictated sentence . I will give the children a dictated sentence on the day of the test. Below are the words for the week of April 24:
Green – long “a” patterns: a__e; ai; and “ay” (open syllable)
past glass stand shape taste brave aid nail Spain pray play stray
Purple: short “u” long “u_-e” oddball
put flute rude June club such tune tube shut hunt jump huge
Orange: short and long “u” patterns: “oo” “ui” “u__e” oddball
tooth spoon prune moon build trust juice bump mood broom skunk dude
Yellow: “ck” “__ke” __k
truck sock lick pack like smoke strike spoke book look cook shook
Mrs. Weitendorf and I wish you a most blessed Easter, safe travels’and a fun week with your children and families!
