Language Arts:

This month in language arts we are learning about how Y can be a vowel. We will be learning about Y used for the long vowel I sound in words like “my” and “fly”. We are also going to be learning about the long vowel O. In May we will be having our final two spelling tests for the year. The class has worked very hard and are really looking forward to being finished taking spelling tests.


We are also going to be wrapping up our math lessons. The class will be learning about fractions, as well as focusing on telling time and adding money values.

This month we are going to be talking about our mothers. We are going to be making mothers day art and gifts for our mom. We are also going to be learning about the ocean this month. We are going to be discussing ocean animals, as well as the other types of thing found in the sea. This will take us right into our lesson on the four elements. We will be doing lessons involving sink/float, and wind power. We are going to be learning about what types of things burn and what the different elements are used for. We will end the month with nursery rhymes. The class will be singing and resiting nursery rhymes. 

Please remember that the weather may be warm in the afternoon, but the mornings may still be chilly. Please make sure your student has a jacket at school for when the weather isn’t very warm. We do play outside each day, so dress them appropriately. When in doubt, have them wear layers. They can always take jackets off if it gets warm. Thank you.
