What We’re Learning
Reading: In conjunction with our field trip to a production of “Into the Woods, Jr.” on Wednesday, this week we will be reading several fairy tales. We’ll find story elements and language that are commonly used in fairy tales. We’ll also use puppets and the flannel board to practice sequencing and retelling the familiar fairy tales.
Writing: As part of the fairy tale mini-unit, we’ll work on writing narratives - stories with a beginning, middle, and end. We’ll put one or more characters in our story, and we’ll develop a problem for that character to solve.
Math: We’re continuing our work with geometry this week. To help make sense of the difference between two-dimensional and three-dimensional, and to help kids to see shapes in the environment, we’ll be doing some hands-on work to create fairy tale scenes using blocks and objects in the classroom and saved materials such as empty boxes.
Library: A number of students have overdue books. Books need to be returned or paid for before your child will be allowed to check out books next year. If you have questions about your child’s status, please call our librarian (Sandi) at 445-1125 between 7:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
