April 7, 2014
Week 34

Dear Parents,
I hope everyone had a relaxing weekend!

If your child has still not brought in plastic Easter eggs, please have him/her bring them in by Tuesday the latest.

On Wednesday we will be having our Easter celebration at Club Banco Centroamericano. The permission slip was sent home last Friday. Please fill it in and return as soon as possible. Students are allowed to bring their morning snack to the club. However, they must purchase their lunch. Swimming, outdoor games, and an egg hunt are some of the activities planned for that day. Parents are welcome to join us. Balls and water toys are welcome (no rafts or air mattresses). Your child does need to wear/ bring a bathing suit if he/she chooses to swim in the pool. The more water toys the better!
This week, your child will be inquiring into the following:

Language Arts
Phonics- This week's words are big, eat, fun, here, and animal. Your child will be learning these words and reviewing older words through various chants and activities.

Reading & Writing- Your child will be inquiring into Expository writing. The students will write about and demonstrate a “How-To” activity to the class. The students will name the topic, supply steps on how to carry out task, and provide some sense of closure
