What a fun, very busy week! This week we spent our time reviewing our letters, numbers, colors, and shapes. Let's remember not to overlook reviewing already learned letters with our children. The kids are demonstrating their knowledge in what has been taught but there are some gaps still, which varies amongst each child. Throughout the two week break let's take some time during each day to have our children point out some letters, sounds, and numbers in the world around us while we are busily preparing for the holidays. Stop for 5 minutes a day and read to your child. Allow your child to pick out the book they would like to read.
The children had fun preparing their gift for you and singing. The holidays are such a wonderful, magical time. We had many lasting MEMORIES this week. Comment below on what your thoughts were on this week or the school year as a whole.
Thank you for letting me have the opportunity to help your child get a step ahead. I absolutely enjoy teaching and love spending time with your child. Have a joyous holiday!
It is fun to see the variety of things that the kids bring to share every week. The students beam with pride while they stand in front of the class explaining their item.
This week we spent our time ordering, counting, and identifying numbers with snowflakes and cookies. Some students even ordered numbers all the way up to 30 with assistance!
Today we made masterpieces which stayed at school to be wrapped next week...SURPRISE.
During school we have Rhythm and Movement time where students tap the beat, sing, and move their body. I would have to say the girls like this section of the day more than the boys, though the boys do like the movement. We also use puppets every week to learn a very important life skill. This week we learned why it is important to know our family members real name and our phone number.
This week we took writing one step further. We learned about 4 square writing where students write a story having four parts. Some students are using beginning, middle, and ending stories while others are writing all about a specific topic.
With all the masterpieces we were creating this week we ran out of time to practice our number 4 handwriting. Please practice writing this number with your child. Keep encouraging your child to always try their best. One week before Christmas Break. I hope the family Christmas party will be fun for all.
