Dear Parents and Friends,
We hope everyone enjoyed the warm and humid weekend! We believe that this week’s weather will be the same as last, cool in the morning and warm in the afternoon, so please try to dress your child accordingly.
Thank you SO much for sending in your child’s Library book this week. We had LOTS of returns and LOTS of happy students!! Thanks for your support!
In Math, we are continuing to focus on counting, as well as sorting various materials. The children are enjoying these activities a great deal. We are also beginning to record different data. This will be a difficult concept at first, but with continued support and encouragement, we are positive this will become easier and easier!
We will continue with our theme, I am Amazing, I Feel Fine!. This week’s focus is on feelings. We will explore how we feel in different situations and how many feelings we have in a week.
What a Fantastic First week with KinderRoo!! The kids were shocked at the antics that KinderRoo displayed in our hallway. Earlier in the week KinderRoo made a mess with markers and macaroni. Later on in the week there were apples everywhere! We just LOVED it!! This week our letter focus is Ss and Dd. Please continue to reinforce the letters Mm and Aa at home.
We will also continue with homework this week. We will be reading Look At Me Know! Please read this story each night with your child. 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. This should NOT be stressful or take very long. Please let us know if you are having any problems with the homework. Keep in mind that we are building confidence in their reading abilities and memorizing is fine at this point. We are trying to encourage and make them believe that they are truly readers! We will also continue to reinforce what the job of the author is and the illustrator is.
Thank you for remembering snacks each day and a HUGE thank you for all of you that have donated to our Class Wish List!! We truly appreciate it!!
Have a Great Week!
Amy and Ashley
