  We enjoyed learning about MLK this week in celebration of our holiday on Monday.  Boys were engaged in activities that celebrated our differences and we discussed MLK's dream as well as our dreams for the future.  We worked on the letter B, continued blending words, added to our growing red word list, and played red word basketball which was a blast!  We discussed sentence writing and wrote a short story on a black race car.  We continued our study on money and introduced the quarter this week.  We had fun ending our week with a Bug poem and a Happy Gram Party!!

u and ch blog           

We have had a great first week back. We hope you all enjoyed your holidays. This week the boys have worked very hard on several new skills. We introduced our 4th vowel this week- “U”.   The boys learned about the diagraph “ch”. We discussed the meaning of a digraph and how it makes 2 letters create a totally new sound.

We are continuing to discuss sentence structure with correct punctuation, capitalization at the beginning of sentences and correct sentence order.

We reviewed our coins and their values by playing musical chairs. We made number stories and decomposed numbers. We used post it notes to find ways to break numbers down and graphed our results.

We have had an absolutely perfect “P” week! The activities were priceless, and we particularly loved the Peter Pan play at Playhouse on the Square. What an exciting adventure! Everyone had a favorite part. Please ask your son about his.

We enjoyed a pickle tasting this week as well. We tried spicy, sweet, dill and bread and butter pickles. Some were tasty and others not so much! We graphed our favorites and discussed math vocabulary terms such as more, less, greater and less than.

We ended our week with a PJ day to celebrate the season with all our SK friends! We drank hot chocolate with marshmallow and watch the original Peter Pan movie. We discussed the differences between the play and the movie. What a sweet celebration we had!

This week in language arts, we added “pl” to our blend list. We also reviewed when to use the letter c or the letter k at the beginning of words. Have your son tell you which vowel sound goes with c or k. We are starting to create inventive sentences. Please have your son practice at home. Give your son a red word and have him create and write a sentence for you.

In Math, we are counting by tens to 120 and using our dimes to help us. We will continue to practice our decomposing skills and move into addition. We are now writing 0-50. Please practice with your son a couple of times a week.

The weather has been very cold lately, and we will continue to go outside daily if the temperature is above 32 degrees. Please make sure your son is dressed appropriately.
