March 19 - March 23

Dear Parents,
We hope you enjoyed your long weekend! It is starting to get hot in the afternoon. Please remember to have your child bring in refillable water bottle and a hat. Please make sure to put bug spray and sunscreen on a daily basis.

Our Easter party will be on Friday March 23rd. We are requesting for each child to bring 12 plastic eggs. Also, for this celebration each child should bring their own basket. Our Easter Celebration will be in the social area of the neighborhood next to the school (Villas del Molino). We would like to thank Mrs. Yessica Antunez for letting us borrow this place. We are planning to leave school at 10:15 a.m. right after snack recess. We are going to come back to school around 1:15 p.m. Children should bring their lunch on this day. The 100 lempiras that you donated will be used to hire Grupo Pon Pon to entertain and play games with the students.

This week your child will be inquiring in the following:

This week your child will be reviewing all the Word Walls with various chants and activities. The spelling challenge will be on Friday, March 23rd. The five new words that we will be introducing this week are: 



Two weeks ago, the children took home an empty booklet. On this booklet they will have the chance to become authors and illustrators. They will create their own main character and write a 10 page story that goes along with their characters. Each page should have only one to two sentences. These sentences need to have rhyming words. For example,
Page 1: The pig is wearing a wig. The big wig is pink. Page 2: The pig meets the dragon that is pulling a wagon

These books should be turned in back to school on Friday, April 6th. The children will be reading their books to each other and also to other students from other grades. Be creative and remember that imagination can take you everywhere!

We will continue our unit on Maps and Fairy tales.  Children will write their own versions of well-known fairy tales. After the break we are going to make groups to give some fairy tales a twist. The children are having a lot of fun reading and watching different versions of well known fairy tales.

In Math we are going to be wrapping up out unit of comparing numbers. We are planning to have a Math Test on Thursday, March 22nd

We wish you a nice and safe Easter Break. We will see each other again on Tuesday, April 3rd
