Ms. Porto’s 4’s Newsletter

Hello all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! This week we introduced the letter H. We also continued to work on our literacy unit The Tug of War!

We started off the week on Monday with counting! The children had to match the number of horses to their hay. Then we went to Spanish where we, reviewed shapes and counted with numbers! When we returned from Spanish we worked on making a bee hive. The children had to recognize numbers one through seven. At the very end of our day, we took a hair color census. We found out that our class has the most brown and black colored hair!

Tuesday the children worked on recognizing upper and lower case H’s by coloring in a hat. This sheet also helped them to focus on color words. Then they went to P.E. where they did some tumbling games. They are having a blast with their gymnastics lessons in P.E. When they returned from P.E. they made a hedgehog out of a paper plate. Boy was that fun!

Wednesday they worked on recognizing upper and lower case H’s with a hat sheet! Since it was a rainy day, the kiddos had some extra time to play in our room. Once we finished with snack and circle, we worked on our Happily Ever After unit, The Tug of War. Then we had a Science lesson where we discussed our sense of sound. The children played some sound games. This was so much fun! When Science was complete, we went to Art where we finished our snowy owls! They look gorgeous!

Thursday we celebrated our 100th day of school! We started off the day coloring in a 100th day coloring sheet! Then we went to Spanish where we worked on numbers one through ten. Ms. Thorogood taught us a valentine song and we learned how to say heart in Spanish. Then we went to Music where we sang and danced! When we returned from Music, our 100th day began! We counted, made badges, number lines and did I mention counted?! We had so much fun!

We ended the week on Friday with a house cutout sheet. The children had to identify pictures starting with the letter H. Then they went to town cutting, gluing, and of course coloring to work on their fine motor skills. Thank you so much to our mystery readers Audrey’s mom and grandfather! We sure do love having mystery readers!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! Please remember to sign up on our Shutterfly account for conferences!

Thank you,
Ms. Porto
