Class Update April 9 Week
We hope you had a fabulous Spring Break with your family. Here are some details about this week:
*Thank you for signing up to bring in items for our vegetable tasting this Wednesday. We truly appreciate all the things you do to help make our lessons a success.
*This Friday is Country Day. Please send your little one to school dressed as a cowboy or cowgirl. No need to purchase anything special – whatever you have around the house should work. The children will rotate around the Fours Classes to learn about life (animals, plants, jobs) in the country.
*Individual Picture Day will be on Thursday. Pictures will only be taken for those who signed up and sent in money.
*Thank you for keeping a change of clothes in your child’s bag in case of accidents.

Curriculum Notes for the Week:
*Morning Work: The children will take a few minutes to practice activities with the letter V. We are also working on printing our first and last names. After morning work, the children get to enjoy some playtime with their classmates.
*Happily Ever After (The City Mouse and the Country Mouse): We will begin our unit by listening to and retelling the story, coloring our story illustration, and showing our understanding on the back of our booklets.
*Letter (V): This week we will read books with letter V sounds. We will identify upper and lowercase V, determine pictures that begin with V, make volcanoes, and taste vegetable items.
*Science (Animals and the World Around Us): We will be learning about what plants need to grow, how they grow, and how veggies come from plants.
*Social Studies (My Place in the World): This week we will talk about maps, the globe, land, and water. We will also talk about our state of Georgia.
*Math (Unit 5 Working with Numbers): We will begin our new math unit by watching items being added and subtracted from a group. We will also work with some simple subtraction problems.
If there is anything we can do for you, please let us know.
