Social Studies/Science:  This week I will be wrapping up our Safe Environment Unit.  Please also talk to your child about "good touch-bad touch" and about how and who to go to for help.  During this unit I also cover stranger danger.  Ask your child questions to see if they can remember- who tricky people are and how do they know and what they should do?  When finished we will be moving on to learning about our 5 senses.  

Birthdays:  We have our first birthday in the classroom this week, so I thought I would clear up some questions!  
*You can bring in a treat on your child's birthday.  This can be anything!  We do have a student with an allergy, but Mom will be providing a special snack on those occasions!  
*If your child has a summer birthday we will celebrate their 1/2 birthday in school, this way we wont have 8 birthdays in May!!!

Fundations

We are working on sounding out words, by tapping each sound out on our thumbs.  Ask your child to show you how this works!  This may come in handy when reading with your child or working on Guided Reading!  

Guided Reading

This week and last week will be different as I am/was missing a number of students.  I will be working on the same book as last week  starting Tuesday and handing out the homework that day as well.  Homework is due Friday!  Thanks!  

Social Studies

We are wrapping up our Family Unit and moving into a unit about Flags this week!  If you have any flags you or your student would like to share with the class, please send them in!  Thanks!

Religion

We continue to focus on Lent and being followers of Jesus this week.  I will also be going over the Stations of the Cross and St. Patrick!

Math

We are working on adding and subtracting through 10.  Your student should be coming home with a worksheet a few times a week to due as homework. 

I am also introducing 3D shapes and their names.  We have learned cube, sphere, cylinder,  and cone.
