The end of the year is approaching quickly. Thank you for sharing your children with me. They have grown and learned so much this year. Thank you for all you have done to support our classroom and our school.
In Religion we will be learning about how Jesus wants us to share God’s love with others. We will talk about how prayer is one way of showing love for God. We will learn that we can pray anywhere and anytime. We will talk about the many ways that we can care for one another. Finally, we will learn that Jesus is our friend and is with us always.
In Math we will be finishing up addition and subtraction. We will then be working on measurement. We will practice using standard and nonstandard units to measure. We will also be using a balance scale to compare the weights of objects. We will finish the year learning about fractions. We will introduce the concept of fractions by exploring equal parts and equal groups. We will learn about halves, thirds, and fourths of a whole.
In Language Arts our theme will be “Putting it Together.” We will continue working on vowel sounds as well as reviewing initial and final consonants. We will review the main idea, characters, and plot of a story. We will continue to practice using proper capitalization and punctuation. We will continue to work about writing questions.
As we read stories we:
- Look for the beginning, middle, and ending of a story.
- Look for the problem and solution in a story.
- Discuss if the story is fiction or non-fiction.
- Discuss the characters, setting, and main idea
- Tell if the story is reality or fantasy
Below is a list of the words that your child should know. Please work on them throughout the summer.
