Week of February 19th -23rd Letter Ee

Dear Parents,
Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend.


There will be NO SCHOOL on Monday FEBRUARY 19th. We will be commemorating President's Day


Classes resume on Tuesday February 20th.





This week we are going to be working with the letter Ee. The vocabulary that we are going to be focusing on is the following: elevator, egg, envelope, elephant, elbow, escalator, exit, eggplant, and empty.




If you have any items at home that begin with this letter, send them in with your child and we will return them on Friday. The kids get excited to bring things from home.

Some of the stories that we will be reading this week are:




Let Elvin the Elephant entertain you. You'll be amazed at everything Elvin can do! This engaging rhyming tale teaches the letter E.







Elmer is an elephant who has a colorful body, with yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, black and white arranged as a patchwork. He has a cheerful and optimistic personality, and he loves practical jokes.





It's an extraordinary day on Pebble Island for three frogs when one of them discovers a beautiful white egg. They've never seen a chicken egg before, but they're sure that's what this must be. So when the egg hatches and out crawls a long green, scaly creature, they naturally call it . . . a chicken!

The acclaimed author of Black? White! Day? Night! and Lemons Are Not Red gives an entirely fresh and memorable presentation to the concepts of transformation and creatiity. Seed becomes flower, paint becomes picture, word becomes story--and the commonplace becomes extraordinary as children look through and turn the pages of this novel and winning book.





Our new sight words for this week are: if, has, her, all, what. Please practice these words at home with your child.
It is important for students to learn sight words in order to help them become fluent readers. Remember that sight words are words students are able to read upon “sight” without having to sound them out. They help facilitate reading comprehension giving students a better opportunity to understand other words in context as they read.





In Math we will be introducing Solid Figures. We will be looking around the classroom for these types of shapes and we will be discussing objects in our environment that can represent each shape. PLEASE, if you have any item at home that can be useful to teach this unit, we would greatly appreciate it if you can send them over. You might want to look around your house for a ball, a dice, paper towel tube, etc. 









In Social Studies this week,  we will be learning about Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.
