The Week of May 22
In Literacy this week we continue to work with the letters Xx and Yy, learning many words that begin with y and words that end with x. The children will continue writing and reading may CVC words and work on their decoding and encoding skills. Please continue to encourage your child to read every chance they get. I have been reading many books by the author Eric Carle, as they correspond with our science lessons.
-In Math we will start the Topic on both 2 and 3 dimensional shapes. This week we will explore some 2D shapes and find many objects that match these shapes in our every day lives.
-In science we will learn more about Ladybugs through our scholastic magazine, Let's Find Out, as well as read the fictional book, The Grouchy Ladybug by Eric Carle. We continue to observe our butterflies in class, as well as our bean plants.Please have your child fill in their Butterfly Observation packet, as they observe their caterpillar, which should be in the chrysalis stage and ready to become a butterfly very soon.
-In Social Studies we will explore our responsibilities as students in a classroom, as a member of a family, and as a community member. We will also learn why we celebrate Memorial Day.
-In Religion we will talk about the Mass and learn the very special meal, the Last Supper, that God shared with his friends, is remembered at every Mass through the consecration of the Eucharist.
-The children continue to observe their butterflies at home and in our classroom. How exciting it is!!
