Dear Parents and Friends,
Happy Fall!! This weekend definitely felt like the beginning of our Fall season in Vermont! We had a warm, but hard working school week last week and are ready for cooler school days!
In Math, we will continue to focus on counting by 1’s as well as writing and recording numbers. We have also begun to work on one to one correspondence when counting items. These skills are very important and any extra practice at home will be of great benefit! Thank you in advance for your help.
Another exciting week with KinderRoo!! This week KinderRoo will be bringing the letters Pp, Gg and Oo. She will be doing antics on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday this week! The children are so excited and a bit disgusted at the messes she creates each day, but KinderRoo truly helps our children to learn their letters and sounds. We hope that they are sharing what they have learned at home!
This week, we will be reading the book, Families Together. You can read it with them or read a page and then have your child read it after you. The importance about this “homework”, is simply having them point to each word as they say it - read the word with their finger under it then moving it to the next word. The children are also encouraged to look at the pictures to figure out the words. Until January, our classes are just memorizing the words. We are building their self confidence to believe that they are readers. The important part of the homework is having your child point to each word they “read” it. Your support is vital to the success of our program. Thank you so much for your support!!
This week we will continue with our theme, Those Nearest and Dearest. We will focus on families and their importance. We will discuss how all families are different and that is what makes them special.
Please remember that Central School picture day is this Thursday, October 4th. If you have not sent back your order form and would like to purchase pictures, please send in money with the form before Thursday.
Next week there will NOT be any school on Monday and Tuesday, October 9th and 10th. October 9th is an InService Day for teachers and October 10th is our Parent-Teacher Conference day. Another note will be going home about signing up for a date and time. We will also have several other dates to choose from.
Have a Great Week!
Amy and Ashley
