This Week We Are Learning (5/21/18):

Reading- This week we will focus on the following Target Skills: identifying the main idea and details of a story, using the questioning strategy, and identifying the author’s purpose, substituting phonemes, blending words, tracking syllables, understanding characters, reading with expression, and identifying prepositions. We will also be reviewing letters y, and q. The high frequency words from this lesson areoff, our, day, take, look, too and show.”  (Please continue to practice reading and identifying all of our High Frequency Words at home.)

Religion- This week we will practice for our Kindergarten Moving–up Ceremony.

Math: We will begin our final math topic, Measurement.  We will learn to compare objects based on length, height, weight, and capacity. The children will measure objects in the classroom and school environment using non-standard measures such as linking clips and cubes. 

Social Studies- We will continue to explore our wonderful state, New York.  We will also discuss the importance of Memorial Day and the veterans that fought for our country.

Science- The children will continue to discuss how farm animals contribute to people’s lives by providing food for the table and clothes to keep them warm. We will also discuss how each new season brings a different set of tasks and responsibilities on the farm.

All of our butterflies have emerged from their chrysalises! We loved watching our caterpillars grow and form chrysalis but, now we will it's time to say goodbye.
