September 16-27th


September 16-27th

~If you would like, you may send a HEALTHY snack along with your child each day!  We have snack at 9:45am and they will get milk if you signed them up for it, they can then eat a small healthy snack before recess.  Please no fruit snacks or cookies etc.

We celebrated Lydia's Birthday on September 9th! 
Our first birthday this year!

~Gym Shoes... If your child has tie shoes as their gym shoes, they should be able to tie them all by themselves.  Most of the time they will wear their shoes they already have on.  I normally only have them change if their shoes are dirty or wet.  Their everyday shoes should also be shoes they can get on and off as well as tie all by themselves!  

~Friday is Mass- they need to dress up for church.  No shorts, tshirts, no jeans and no words on their clothing.  Boys need a collared shirt.  If you do not want/ or your child does not want to wear their dressy church clothes all day, please send a change of clothes. They will change right after mass.  I am sorry if your child came home in their spare "accident" clothes on Friday, they thought they all needed to change.... we are all learning! 

This past Friday, Kinley and Carter brought up gifts during mass!  
Everyone will have multiple opportunities to do this throughout the school year!  
They will also have an opportunity to either read the petitions or the thanksgiving prayer/poem  sometime this year, this normally doesn't start until after Christmas, when our reading gets better!

Reading: We will be starting to meet in small reading groups this week.  We will be starting with learning some of the more frequent sight words that they will need to know! Some of these words include: the, a, is, in, it, was, as, of, I etc.  When you are reading with your child, pointing out these sight words will help!  Also a big help is asking questions after a story...
Who was this story about?
Where did this story take place?
What was the problem?
How did he/she solve this problem?
This will really help with their reading comprehension.

We earned popsicles for good behavior!

Fundations / Spelling:We are working on lower case letters and their sounds! We have started with b, f, t, n, m, i, and u. We will be adding c, o, a and g!  To help with this find ways to point out or search for letters, whether it be while driving or on a cereal box!  

Writing:We are working on labeling our drawings and sounding out each word!  

Math: We are working on following directions and shapes!  We have talked about circles, rectangles, and squares.  We have learned how to write numbers 1-4 and will be working our way up to 10! 

Religion: We will continue learning about mass and how that all works.  We are learning about God and Jesus.  We will be starting our Creation Unit on the 17th!

Social Studies/Science:  This past week we talked about the Human Body and Safe Environment.  We learned about the parts of our bodies that are private and should stay private.  And what to do if our Underpants Rule is broken.  I used the book My Underpants Rule by Kate and Rod Power.  If you have any questions or concerns about this please let me know!  This next couple weeks we will be learning about our 5 senses and incorporating our senses with a unit on Apples! 

As always, my door is always open, if you have any questions
or concerns please don't hesitate to ask!
