Help your child develop comprehension skills:
• Talk with your child about the story and pictures
• Have your child predict what a story will be about
• Have your child retell the important parts of the story
We have enjoyed learning about Antarctica, winter and penguins. We will now begin studying whales and other sea mammals. Look for a stuffed whale to come home with your child this week. Ask him/her questions about the whale. You will be impressed with their knowledge!
The students are working hard in all areas of the curriculum. We are emphasizing the importance of always doing nice, neat work and taking their time to complete a task instead of rushing through it. This year is going by so quickly!
Thank you for making it so enjoyable and for helping your child have a successful year. Please continue reading with your child each night. Thank you for being diligent on helping with homework as well!
Have a wonderful week and thank you for all you do!
