Miss Elizabeth Reyes (K-1)

Before you speak, it is necessary for you to listen, for God speaks in the silence of the heart.

Mother Teresa


This Week We Are Learning (3/19/18):

Reading- This is a Review Week-we will be reviewing the following skills: blending phonemes, segmenting phonemes, reading with expression, determining key details, determining author's word choice, inferring/predicting, and multiple-meaning words.  We will also be working with the short and long vowel sounds of the letter Oo.  The high frequency words are: “make, play, them, say, give, and new” (Please continue to practice reading and identifying all of our High Frequency Words at home.) 

Religion- In religion, we will talk about prayer. God wants us to communicate with Him whenever we can. Please help your child practice our prayers.

Math- In math we will finish working with teen numbers. Please continue to practice writing numbers 0-20 at home. 

Social Studies- The children will learn that people work to make money to pay for things they need and want. 

Science- We will begin our Living and Nonliving Unit.  The children will learn about the characteristics that distinguish living things from nonliving things.
