This week we will be busy getting to a good stopping point before leaving for Spring Break. We have a lot of fun activities going on this week including our field trip to see Henry & Mudge Live on Tuesday, an African Drum and Dance assembly on Wednesday and our Easter Celebration on Friday. This week will certainly be a full week of work and play! Here's a peek at our week:
This week in ABCs we will continue to work our way through digraphs with the ch digraph. We will focus on words that begin and end with /ch/ such as chain and church. During reading we will work through a nonfiction series that relates back to our Mrs. Wishy-Washy reading from last week. We will read nonfiction books about farm animals that were introduced on Mrs. Wishy-Washy's farm.
This week in religion we will create coffee filter butterfly wings for our beautiful Very Hungry Caterpillar Lent bulletin board. We will also spend time reading several versions of the Easter story. On Friday, we will have our last Stations of the Cross as a class before leaving for break.
This week in math we will begin our new topic (Topic 12 - Measurement). We will begin by identifying different ways we can measure things and comparing objects by length. As we move through our last few math units we will continue to work on addition/subtraction skills during our morning meeting as well as during transition times throughout the day.
This week during science we will finish our Healthy Eating unit by learning about the diary group. We will complete our My Plate Projects and be ready to being our last science units of the year upon returning from Spring Break (Caring for Our Earth & Plants).
