If you have not already, please send in a new pack of 24 crayons and 2 large glue sticks by January 9th. Scholastic book order forms went home last week. If you are interested in placing an order, please do so online by January 16th. Just a friendly reminder that the children do not have school on the 18th and 21st of this month.
The letter of the week is O. We will be doing many different activities to recognize the capital and lowercase letter and the sound of the letter O. Our art project for the letter will be an owl. For show and tell on Friday, please bring in something that starts with the letter O.
In math this week we will continue to learn how to add. We will learn how to add using pictures and drawings. We will also learn how to find the second number in an addition sentence when you are already given the sum. For example, 7+?=10 the second number would be 3.
In reading this we will continue with our concept pitching in. The essential question is “How can people help to make your community better?” The main story this week is Roadwork by Sally Sutton and illustrated by Brian Lovelock. The vocabulary words that we will be discussing are harvest, quarrel, community, confused and improve. We will listen to an interactive read aloud called A Bundle of Sticks.
We will continue with our science unit, our five senses. Our five senses are touch, sight, smell, taste, and hear. We use different body parts of ours to help us determine different qualities of the senses. Last week we talked about our sense of touch and sight. This week we will be talking about the sense of smell, taste, and hear.
Sight words are words that will help your child read. When they see these words, they will need to recognize them. This week the two sight words are “my” and “ ”. On Friday I will assess the children on these two words.
On Monday we will have physical education. On Tuesday we will have music and computer. On Wednesday we will have art and library. We did not take out library books last week so everyone will be able to take out a new book this week.
Sacred Heart Catholic Academy is always collecting box tops for education. Please remember to cut the box top off items. When you get a bunch please send them into school. It helps our school earn money. Remember you can also earn an incentive. Thank you for your support.
