Good Morning!

I hope you all had a great weekend and a very relaxing Mother’s Day. 

This week, we will complete our “Plants” unit. We will learn why plants are important. Plants are needed for so much more than just food! Our vocabulary for the week includes compost, fabric, edible, habitat, harvest, medicine, shade, shelter, and wood. 

We will continue to work on word building and sight word activities this week. In math, we will work on different activities using our ten frame. We will observe our caterpillars and learn about the life cycle of a butterfly. 

We will have Zoom sessions on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 12. Please try your best to attend at least one so that your child may see his/her classmates.

Tuesday: We will play a math game. You will need a ten frame and two different style manipulatives to count with (i.e. red and yellow circles, green and blue Legos).  

Wednesday: We will draw a butterfly together (directed drawing). You will need a pencil, crayons, and paper.

Thursday: We will have show and tell! Share one thing that came from a plant (does not only have to be a food…). Give three clues to help us guess what you’re sharing.

Check your Dojo messages for the small group schedule and activity for this week!  

Please check Class Dojo throughout the day for different video lessons and information that go along with the daily lessons. 

Have a wonderful week!

Ms. Fitzpatrick

Distance Learning Information

Dear Parents, 

During our school closure, I will be using Class DOJO (https://www.classdojo.com/) to take attendance and post daily work that must be completed. Instructions will be sent so that every parent/student may create their profile and access my class page on Class DOJO.

Please log-on to Class DOJO every day to view my daily message. Respond to the message so I may take attendance. Only children/parents who respond to the message will be marked as present for that day.

Daily work will include: story (read aloud on YouTube) and story response; literacy activity (letters/letter sound, sight words); math activity, and science activity. I will also post songs that we use daily in our classroom that correspond with each activity. Some activities will require you to print so that your child may complete them. If printing is not possible, please copy the activity onto a separate piece of paper. All printed activities and story responses will be collected upon our return to school. For math and science activities, please email pictures of your child’s completed work.

If there are any questions or concerns regarding the work, I will be logged onto Class DOJO every day between 9-12. You may also email through my school email (rfitzpatrick@queenoftherosarybrooklyn.org).

In the event you can not access Class DOJO, all daily work will also be posted on my class page on the school website (Daily Work- Distance Learning). On days that you cannot access Class DOJO, you must email me with a message so that I may mark your child as present.

During this time, please try to keep your child on a regular schedule. Allow time for independent play, gross motor play, and quiet/rest. Read together every day. Provide your child with a work area that has markers, crayons, and pencils. Make sure your child writes his/her full name every day, like they do in school. Remind your child to make green choices.

This is new for all of us, but I am confident we can all make it work for the benefit of the children. I will miss seeing them every day, and I look forward to when we can all return to our daily routines.

Stay healthy!

Ms. Fitzpatrick
