Math, Science, and Sight Words

This week in Transitions....In math we continue to focus on joining groups together, listening, and using  problem solving strategies. This strengthens each child's math skills when I introduce addition. It helps them think through each step when they need to come to a conclusion such as do I need one more? Or am I putting the things all together? In science, we have started our frog unit. We discussed the life cycle of a frog. We wrote about it in our science journals, and created a project. (see attached) We also read and watch a short video on it. This week we will focus on our new friend, Pepe the tadpole. On Monday, the kiddos will be introduced to Pepe and we will watch him for the rest of the year going through all of the stages of a frog. It becomes the most exciting event that happens in science this time of year. Our sight words this past week were COME and DOWN. We continue to create books every week in class using these words. Please continue to check your child's folder every week to see all the additional work we do using our sight words. Please take advantage and try to reinforce the words in your daily lives. With our continued partnership your children and my students can reach the stars!
