Math: Our April math lessons will focus on counting by 2's. 5's and 10's, subtraction, and counting to 100 (report card goal).
Reading: We are continuing our study of individual letters. With each letter, the children enjoy songs, poems, chants, puppets, books and other activities focused on the letter of the week. They will learn to identify the letter, produce it's sound and write it properly using writing lines. We have learned to read the following words: what, where, they, make, am, down, there, who, and, see, the, is, go, can, in, this, like, to, we, will, play, at, do, for, has, it, look, my, no, yes, you, off, on, at come, day, and have. Encourage your child to identify these words in books when you read to them.
Theme : Our themes this month will be " Frogs," Plants," "Butterflies," "Ocean."
Writing: We will practice writing the letter of the week using the writing lines. Please encourage your child to write sentences using our word wall words. We are practicing starting our sentences with a capital letter, leaving spaces between words and ending with a period.
