This week our class continued to read different tales. So far we have read Little Red Riding Hood, The Little Red Hen and the Three Billy Goats Gruff. Throughout the week we read several different versions of the stories. In a few of the versions of Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf wanted to eat muffins instead of Grandma, or be friends with Red Riding Hood. Here a just a few that we have read…

During centers students are continuing spell and to write the sounds they hear in words. We also distinguished between words that do and do not rhyme. Students are demonstrating a great knowledge in quantifying numbers (if the number is 12, they take out 12 pebbles). They also are retelling and acting out the stories we have read.
Our class is continuing to make new friends in other classes.
On Wednesday our kiddos had a tasty treat of fresh hummus and veggies. The recipe was sent home with them.
Don’t forget you can always view more photos on our class account.
Hopefully by now, you have read over the information for our Student Led Conferences, which will be held next Wednesday, April 25 and Thursday, April 26 (click here for the details). Thank you to those who have reserved your times already. If you have not, please do so by Sunday, April 22, so we can make plans accordingly. Also, there is no school those 2 days, but YOUR CHILD must come with you to the conference.
The BookWorm Book Fair begins next Monday. If you have a conference scheduled for Wednesday, you are welcome to take your child to the library to visit the Book Fair. The Book Fair will close Wednesday afternoon, so if your conference is Thursday, you may want to take your child to visit on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday before or after school.
If you don’t get a chance to shop at the Book Fair, we will be sending home one final Scholastic Book Order in the coming weeks. This is a great way to get reasonably priced books in your child’s hands, especially for your summer reading.
As mentioned last week, we have begun our final PYP unit, How We Express Ourselves. You and your child will receive a letter on Sunday, explaining the requirements for a final performance/presentation that will conclude our unit. This is an exciting unit and if you have any questions after reading the letter, please email me.
We surveyed KG1 parents about some possible workshop ideas. You will be receiving information regarding those plans very soon.
Your child is encouraged to continue using IXL each week. Even 10-15 minutes during the week, will help support and enhance their learning!
Swimming begins on May 2 for our class. Please have your child practice changing clothes and showing you how much they improved since the fall.
Finally, a slip of paper came home in your child’s folder this week regarding “your plans” for their last day of KG1. With Ramadan, Eid and many families traveling, we are just trying to plan ahead. Please return that slip of paper on Sunday of next week.
Have a great weekend!
