Ms. Alyssa’s Weekly Update 4.12.18


Next weekend is the school carnival!! Turn in your pre-order ticket paper next week to get some bonus tickets for free :)


This Week:

  • We talked about triangles and cones. This helped us discuss similarities and differences. When looking at a picture of these shapes on paper they look similar, but looking at objects that are these shapes we were able to see how different they are.  

  • We discussed the number 18 and practiced recognizing it, writing it and counting it. We used a ten frame to see how 18 is 10 + 8. Every day when we count to our number of the week we count in english and spanish. It has been awesome to see progress in counting in both languages.

  • We focused on producing the sounds for the letters Ll, Ff, Ee, and Hh. We focused on the sight words: can, my, do, to, like, you, not, me. We also started talking about the digraphs: sh, ch, th, and wh. This chart shows the visuals we use to talk about these blends.


  • We had a fun week reading books by the author and illustrator, Mo Willems. Mo Willems has written a TON of books and the students love all his different characters. At the library this week many students even looked to check out his books.
