In the area of Math we wrap up our introduction of numbers but will begin working on ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc).  We will also continue to work on recognizing our last names and on learning our phone numbers.

Hello parents! It’s hard to believe we are already in March and Spring is knocking on our door!! The Dr. Seuss party was great fun and I know the children had such a fantastic time! Thank you again to all of the parents and volunteers who were able to put together such a great party!

The children are growing so much with each passing week! I am so proud of all they are accomplishing and learning each day. They are becoming more and more like independent learners. The children have been practicing their phone numbers each morning on our phone number mats and we continue to practice writing our first names every day. Please continue to practice writing first names and having them recall their first and last names to you.

This month, I will be doing evaluations on each child and will go over that information with you at our conferences in a few weeks. Also, we will finish introducing numbers 0 – 20, but will continue to review and practice our numbers daily, as well as add in new skills such as combining and decomposing numbers (pre addition/ subtraction) and making patterns.

The next few months will fly by and you will be so amazed at how much they will grow and learn!

Happy March,

Alicia Rowland

The children continue to grow and learn with each passing day. We review their personal information each morning, and most are doing great. Please continue to quiz them each day on this. Have your child practice writing their name without dots. Our fine motor skills are also growing. We will finish our numbers this month (0-20), however we will continue to review numbers and start some simple math.
I have to say this is such a sweet class and they are so well behaved. We love each one of them so much, and can’t believe that school is almost over. Spring pictures are 3/25 as well as their graduation pictures.
I will start evaluations this month, for our conferences on March 30, 31, April 1, &2. Please let me know if you would like to come in for a conference.
