Only 2 weeks left!

 

Mrs. Evans Weekly Newsletter

May 24-27

Even with only a couple weeks left, we are still going strong!  This week, your children began learning about clocks and telling time.  “The Grouchy Ladybug” book helped us each day with our learning.

Ask Your Child:

  • In the story “Matilda”, what can Matilda do with her eyes? (hint: Think of the glass)
  • To use at least 3 words to describe Miss Honey’s house. How is this different from the house Matilda lives in?
  • How can a sphere be made into a circle? (think of the orange)
  • What can a flat rectangle make when it is taped together?
  • What shape did a flat circle turn into? (hint: think of Snuffles roof.)
  • Can you show an adult how to make a rectangle into a cylinder and a circle into a cone (Remember you need to make a cut ½ way in order for this to work well)…only if you have time.

Memory Verse:  And our final memory verse of the year, “Treat everyone like it’s their birthday!”

 

Have a wonderful long weekend!!!

Mrs. Evans first dog was named "Ellie."  Mrs. Evans, her husband, and Ellie liked to play "hide and seek" together.  (She could sniff us out every time!)

I am looking so forward to May!  We will be putting what we have been learning about money to use.  This week we began discussing wants vs. needs, learning about ways to “earn” money rather than just asking mom and dad, and ways we can give an organization that could use a little extra support.  Please see the attached papers (Parent help needed, please.)
