Theme for Week of May 15
Theme- Race and Transportation
Our big book for this week is On
The Go. It teaches us how people all over the world travel. We will be doing a variety of activities with this book.
We will also make race cars, race hats, and hot dog hot rods. Thanks to those who provided the supplies for our special snack. We will do several math and reading activities around the race theme.
We will review ALL popcorn words from this year.
-Rounding to 10s

The children will be exposed to popcorn words. These are words that "pop" up everywhere when we read. The first words they will be asked to read are:
Spelling Words for May 16

Monkey Moolah and Interrupting Chickens
If your child has behaviorally done his/her best each day, they will receive a "Monkey Dollar" at the end of the day. Once they reach 10, they return them to school to cash in on a prize.
If a child interrupts frequently and causes me to stop teaching, they will receive a chicken next to their name. Once they receive 3 in a day, they must move their monkey. Please encourage your child to listen when I am speaking to the class and to raise their hand if they would like to answer or ask a question.
At the end of each day, ask your child if they received a dollar bill or if they were an interrupting chicken!
