We are so excited about the All Saints Day Pageant on Thursday. The children have been working very hard and I know you will enjoy seeing your "saint" in church.

If you are ordering a new lunch item for your child, can I ask that you also send in a lunch you know your child will eat if they don't like what was ordered. Thank you.

***** We will be reading a story about leaves. Please have your child come in with a leaf in a zip lock bag on Monday.

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: g, a
Sight word of the week: is, his
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 will finish Chapter 3- Counting and Writing Number 6-9. The children have learned how to count objects of 6 or more using a 10 frame. They have learned that you have 5 when a 5 frame is all filled in. We will also practice how to write numbers correctly. Please encourage your child to count real life objects.

We will be learning about Fall.

We will be to talk about saints and practice for our All Saints' Day Pageant.
We are also practicing making the Sign of the Cross. We learned the sign of the cross is God the Father, the So and Holy Spirit. Children colored a candy corn to show this.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.
