Mrs. Borden and Mrs. Jones’ Newsletter
Week of April 23, 2018
***In Math, we will move on to Topic 11, Decomposing Numbers 11-19. We will learn to break the numbers 11-19 into parts made up of ten ones and some further ones. We will also write number sentences to show how we broke the numbers into parts. Our new Math words are: double ten frame, set.
***In Reading, our new story is This is the Way we go to School and it is an informational fiction story. Our amazing words are: cable car, trolley, horse and buggy, skis, Metro line, vaporetto . Our essential question is “How do children around the world go to school?”. We will also talk about drawing conclusions and plot.
***Science and Social Studies- We were able to discuss things that would help the Earth for Earth Day. We also have been identifying plants and animals that live on land and plants and animals that live in water.
***Handwriting/Writing- We will continue to review capital letter formations each day, one letter review at a time. After that, we will review lower case letter formations one letter review at a time. We will also continue responding to prompts while trying to stay in the lines with our lowercase letters and use our 2-finger spacing in between words.
***Important Reminders- For Kindergarten Graduation Pictures, please wear a white collared shirt. Girls should not wear their hair up high since they will be wearing caps. If you are purchasing a package, please return your child’s order form and payment by Wednesday, April 25.
