It was so nice seeing you all at conferences.
The countdown to Christmas is here.....


Just a few reminders:
Changes in transportation MUST be in writing.
Your child will be coming home with a folder each day. Please be sure to go through the folder and take out any notices that may be in there.
Please be sure to send in one HEALTHY snack for your child. Please also send in a drink with their lunch and a spoon, if needed. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with your child.
The children have started to practice writing their name (the first letter of their name should only be capitalized). Please give them practice at home with this, as well.
Each week our class page will be updated. This will give you information about what we will be learning in class, important events, due dates, field trips, etc. The sidebar on the left will be updated with useful links to websites for you and your child, as well as our calendar. At the bottom of the web page, you will find our special schedule.

When writing, please only use pencil......unless otherwise noted.
Practice letters and their sounds.


Letters of the week: v, w
Sight word of the week: of, have
We will be spending the next 12 weeks on letter sound recognition and letter formation (lowercase letters).
We will create lists of words that have the letter sound in them. Please practice this skill at home with your child. The children must be familiar with all letters, as well as the sounds they make.
We are also learning about rhyming words. We have learned that rhyming words must end the same.

We will be spending the next 2 weeks reading many Christmas stories and doing fun activities to go with the,.

We will finish Chapter 5- Addition. The children should be able to identify a "plus" and "equal" sign and know that plus means to add. The children will learn how to count and write 10. They will also learn that you have 10 when a ten frame is complete. We will also practice how to write numbers correctly. Please encourage your child to count real life objects.

We will be learning about winter.

We will be to talk about how Advent is a time to get ready for Jesus' birthday.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.
