Language Arts:

This month we are going to be focusing on writing more. We are going to work on writing their names with the proper capitals and lower case letters. We are also going to be reading more. I will be testing the class on their sight words and seeing how fast the students can read.


This month we are going to be working more on telling time and adding money. Most of the class has mastered the coin values, so we can start putting coins together and adding the amounts. We are also going to be learning about fractions (half, whole, fourths, thirds).

Science/Social Studies:

This month we are starting the month with our weather/seasons unit. The class will be learning about different types of weather and learning to match the weather with the proper seasons.

We will also be studying plants this month. We will be growing plants in the classroom and journaling about what we see.

We are going to learn about riding safety during the week of the trike-a-thon and doing activities to help the class understand how to be safe on their bikes.

We also have Earth day and Easter this month. So, we will be doing activities to celebrate the holidays. We will be learning about recycling and how to help protect the Earth.

We are learning about insects at the end of the month. The class will be studying bugs and different types of arachnids. We will also be learning about he life cycle of the butterfly.
