In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence. This week we will be reviewing numbers 0-5, counting until 10.

We will be cooking and eating pancakes, so we will only be requesting for the fruit and the toppings. We will also have a movie day, kids can bring toys to play with their friends.

We will be reading and discussing stories from the author MO WILLEMS.
Some of the books we are going to be reading this week are the following:

In this book, children follow a day in the life of a Triceratops, as he wanders away from his herd and has an encounter with a deadly Tyrannosaurus rex.
 Ruth Thomson is an award-winning author of history and art books with dozens of titles to her credit, including Terezín: Voices from the Holocaust. Her art books include biographies of Vincent van Gogh and Georgia O’Keeffe.  

Please mark your calendars for the first SPRING CONCERT that will take place on Wednesday May, 23 (which is no longer an early dismissal day) from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Our students modified their performances from the cancelled Songfest back in December and are ready to showcase their growth and improvement in Music class. 

We have talked to the students that we have started the hot season in Honduras. Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. Have them wear light clothes; they can bring a hat to protect from the sun, put sunscreen on their face and arms.
