March 11 - March 15

Dear Parents, I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

This coming Friday, March 15th there will be NO SCHOOL because of our Spring Break! Enjoy your long weekend!

Reading Logs for our annual Read-a-Thon were distributed last week. The children need to write the name of the book he/she is reading, the number of pages, and the activity they chose for the book. This paper has to be in their folders every day. Please take the time to motivate your child into reading, reading, and reading! This competition will last until March 29, and the winners of each grade will receive a prize from our DPTO.

All the daddies are invited to come and have fun playing sports games with your child on Thursday March 14th to commemorate your day which in Honduras is celebrated on March 19th. The fun will start from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. First Grade DADS and kids need to wear a green shirt. Uncles are welcome if dads are not able to come!!

Reading to the Kindergarten Students. We will continue to devote one day of the week to read books to the Kindergarten students for a period of 20 minutes. This is a great opportunity for the children to practice their reading strategies, improve their fluency, and use the sight words learned in context. The First Graders are extremely excited to be the big kids who are getting ready to move on to second grade. For this activity, we require that the students bring a book from home that they feel comfortable reading and that would be easy for a 5 year old to understand. If you do not have a book, we are going to be using one from our classroom or the school library.

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 Thursday, March 14th. The five new words that we will be introducing this week are:


We will finish reading the stories of Owl at Home. We will discussing which story was their favorite and why.

We will continue practicing Two-Digit Addition and Subtraction. You may want to practice with them at home. If you do, please emphasize that we always need to start with the ones place.

We will be wrapping our unit about Maps. The children are having fun learning about different variety of maps. They have also learned about map key, symbols, and the compass rose.
