Week 30

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS POST. Our first grade music program is Friday, April 8 at 1:30. Be sure to come see your child be a star!!!

Our story for this week is "Frog and Toad All Year." It is a fiction piece that has a story within a story. The phonics focus is long a made by ai and ay. The vocabulary words for the week are:

Question of the Week
Monday - The Pony Express was established in 1860. What did it carry?
Tuesday - It is National Humor Month. Tell me a joke.
Wednesday - It is Dandelion Day. Do you think a dandelion is a weed or a flower?
Thursday - It is National Garden Month. If you had a garden what would you plant?
Friday - Today is Pick Your Own Name Day. What name would you choose?

In math, we will be continuing money practice, learning about hundreds, tens and ones, and writing number stories.

Thanks to all of you who ordered books online. Every time you order online the class gets a free book. That is helpful. I try to choose something that fits AR so it is a double for us.

Have a great week. I hope to see you at the program on Friday.
