Newsletter for the week of April 8th



  • Our core vocab word of the week was “want”
  • We practiced using the word “want” in many ways. The children took turns requesting songs using the sentence starter “I want…” They also made requests for when they wanted more food at snack
  • Our letter of the week was “W”
  • We practiced the letter “W” by reading an interactive book and searching through our rice bin for objects that start with the letter “W,” we did a watermelon bingo sheet, traced a whale, and sang letter “W” songs
  • We read many books including “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” and “Ten Easter Eggs”
  • The students worked on building stamina during read to self time during which they practiced their book handling skills
  • The children practiced counting and adding with an Easter basket and egg craft. Our work is hanging in the hallway outside our classroom
  • We read an interactive book about things we see in the spring
  • The children practiced identifying the first letter of their name during attendance
