First, I would like to say THANK YOU!!!! All of our parents came to last week’s student-led conferences. The children were so excited to show their parents what they have been learning.
This week we read traditional stories of The Three Little Pigs. Next week we will read different versions, including stories told from the wolf’s perspective. The class also started making their own little pig houses to retell the stories on their own.
In centers they continued identifying items by their beginning sounds using their I Spy books. They acted out and retold the story of the Three Little Pigs. Students chose a numbered log and had to put two groups of different colored frogs. Then they had to say, “I have 3 blue frogs and 2 red frogs.” I would ask how many total frogs are on the log, and they would say, ” I have 5 frogs.” This is the first step in understanding addition.
On Tuesday we celebrated Hag Al Laila. Thank you to all the parents that sent in candy to share with the class. Rashid and Nia’s mom came in to pass out candy. The children were very excited, but I promise they were only allowed to eat 2 pieces that day.
We had our first swim class. They were soooooo excited!
There is no school on May 13th.
Tuesday, May 8 will be the last week that we will send home Literature Bags in KG1. During Ramadan, our TA’s will leave after the students leave and there is no time for them to organize the bags. We hope you and your child have enjoyed these great books and activities to build language and literacy skills. Maybe you can make some for home!
