PLEASE NOTE: Next week, St. Edward School is on spring break. This means the only ones in session are the 4k students. I taught when 4k was on break in the kindergarten and afterschool program and Mrs. Revoir, our afternoon teacher, had off. We are switching for this spring break. Mrs. Revoir will be subbing for me for Thursday April 17-April 22. The office will also be closed at this time. If you have an absence, have a note for the teacher, or any information, please email Mrs. Revoir at email@example.com. Also, there is no extended day or aftercare offered on these days. All students must be picked up at 10:55am.
Students did great. Students also interviewed their friends on their favorite space picture. Student's then tallied their friend's answer. They then collected all of the data into a graph and graphed the answers. They then assessed their results and circled the number that had the most data.
Wednesday, we did another write the room activity in which students went around the room in search for space words. Students are getting better at copying the print they see. We continue on working on not only making the letters, but forming them correctly. We also drew ourselves as astronauts. Students drew their face in the astronaut helmet, working on adding details of a face. We also worked on some number patterns, which was tricky but fun to figure out the passwords!
Following our letter of the week project (one more week left!) we will be starting our number of the week books. These books will consist of putting the correct amount of stickers on the number, draw that many objects, and cut that number out of the magazines. We need your help! Please send magazines or ads (ads seem to have the most numbers). Sunday ads would be perfect! Thank you!
The letter of the week was Yy .We learned the sign language for a letter, the literacy link sound symbols, the letter sound, and looking at and writing it in both capital letters and lower case letters. Click here to view the many ways we learn the letter of the week!
Each week we watch letter videos from "Have Fun Teaching" and the students are really picking up the names of letters, formations, and the sounds of letters. Check out these videos with you child! Click HERE.
The Tuesday project of letter of the week is to decorate a letter with something that starts with the letter. This week we decorated the letter Yy is for yellow yarn. On Thursday, our letter of the week project was to read a page from our alphabet book, Y is for Yak.
Please note, as always, the Hortonville Public Library hosts free events for kids! Check them out on your days off and have some fun family bonding time! The link below brings you to the sites "kids" page.
