Language Arts- This month we are learning long vowel E and long vowel A. It’s important for children to recognize vowels and both vowel sounds (long and short sounds). Please continue reviewing the spelling words at home. The class has done really well adjusting to the harder spelling lists. Thank you for your help with studying the words.

Math- We are continuing to work in our math workbooks, as well as playing math games to help with learning math concepts. One of our favorite games, that you can play at home with regular playing cards, is TOP-IT. In this game, two players both turn over a card from a upside down shuffled deck of cards. The person who turns over the higher number gets to take both cards and play continues until all cards have been taken. The player with the most cards at the end wins.

Science/Social Studies- This month we are learning about Dr. Seuss. It is fun for the class to identify the rhyming words. We are also celebrating St. Patricks Day and doing “green” activities. We will be learning about the solar system this month. We will be talking about space, planets, and the sun. The end of the month starts our weather and seasons unit, where we talk about the different types of weather and which types occur in which seasons.
