I am sending home folders today just in case….
We finished our unit on Hh and started working on a unit called “Us”, which will focus on the letter Uu.
Laminated sheets of ice cream paper have been sent home for handwriting practice. The skinnier expo markers work well for handwriting practice on this paper. One was sent home with each child in the packets we sent home in December. If you need another one, please let me know. Thank you!
We are working on a lot of phonics and math activities that the class should be able to complete independently after whole group instruction.
I am sending home work in folders that need to be completed on the left-hand side of the folders. At this point in the year they should be able to complete these tasks/activities in class. Incomplete work is an indication of frustration with the work (lack of understanding) or an indication that they are having a tough time staying on task.
Letter Packets - Each day the children work on letter names, producing the sound, and handwriting. A star indicates they can do the task. A smile indicates they needed help.
Added to calendar - There will be a Teacher Inservice Day in Lansing on Monday, April 24 in Lansing. There will be NO SCHOOL on this day.
