Hi Parents!

 

We will not have homework this week due to the shorter week.  Many students will receive Mass reading parts on Thursday to practice over Spring Break.  In addition, I will send April sight words home on Thursday for your child to practice over break.  I hope you all have a fantastic Spring Break!

 

It is CRAZY to think that we are on our last grading period!!!  As I was telling the students about it today, I almost couldn’t believe it!  Please remind your child to continue working hard every day to show me that he/she is ready for 1st grade.

 

Thursday is Beach Day for the entire school.  Students can dress in beach attire.  Sunglasses and beach towels are allowed.  I’m thinking if the weather is warm, we can go outside and read on our beach towels 😊 Please be sure that shorts are of the appropriate length (see the handbook for any questions).  Students may need to wear warmer clothes over beach attire in case we have recess.

 

Below is a preview of some of the things we’ll be doing this week:

Phonics:

We will continue discussing blends this week.  Blends are like digraphs, however with blends you can hear both sounds.  (sl, tr, sp, cl, etc.)

 

Reading:

Our theme for the week is Spring.  We will continue this after break when we go on a Spring scavenger hunt with our 8th grade buddies!

 

Math:

We will continue working with measurement this week.

 

Religion:

Our second Mass is right after Spring Break!  I will be sending parts home by the end of this week.  If your child has a reading part, he/she will be able to practice during Spring Break.

 

Hopefully your child came home with a paper on Friday with the name of a student or staff member that your child should pray for throughout Lent.  Please encourage your child to pray for this person at home every night.
