We hope you all have had a wonderful Semana Santa / Easter break! We hope this break has helped us all re-charged our batteries and enthusiastically begin the last portion of this school year.
This week we are going to continue working with the alphabet. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound. The letter for this week we will be the letter Bb. The vocabulary for this letter is: bear, boy, bat, ball, bee.
If you have any items at home that begin with this letter, send them over with your child and we will be discussing them in class, we will display them on a table and we will return them back on Friday. The kids get excited to bring things from home.
Some of the books we are going to be reading this week are the following:
This simple book is an early reader for beginning readers, but it works great as a cozy read aloud too. Kids will enjoy learning how the bug, bear, and a boy – friends of such different sizes – are able to do things together. When they eat, the bear eats from a bucket, the boy from a bowl, and the bug from a bottle cap. The bear sleeps on a rug on the floor, the boy in a bed, and the bug in a peanut shell. Sweet book!
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 working with number 2.
Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Once I Caught a Fish Alive”
In our Science unit we will be learning about Ocean Animals. We are going to be discussing the different types of ocean animals. Children will get the chance to name them and identify creatures that live under the sea. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: shark, whale, jellyfish, crab, clown fish, dolphin, octopus, sea horse, turtle, stingray. If you have any books or posters, ideas or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated.
This week’s Challenge at Home will be listening to songs that focus on the sound and vocabulary for letter b.
