Here is what we worked on this week:
RELIGION: We learned the story of the Good Shepherd. We also learned why a shepherd needs a staff and that Jesus is our Good Shepherd and we are his followers.
SECOND STEP- We talked about what we can do for others if they need help.
MATH: We are now adding math facts up to 10. Continue to practice quick recall of the facts up to 5. I will be "testing" again this week. Can your child count to 100?
LANGUAGE ARTS: The letter of the week was Hh. The new words were: my and oval. The children should be able to identify each capital and lowercase letter of the alphabet and the sound each letter makes. It will help your child to become a successful reader.
*Word Wall*- I, can, the, we, see, a, like, to, and, go, you, do, my, red, blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, brown, black, zero, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, triangle, circle, square, rectangle, oval.
It is so important to make flash cards for all these words and practice them daily in a different order each time.
Continue to work on the reading website, Wonders, atleast 2-3 times a week. I can notice, during reading groups, who has been reading the stories at home.
Please reinforce writing words and short sentences at home. The words do not need to be spelled correctly, but spelling them with the sounds they hear.
CENTERS: IPADS / WRITING / LISTENING / WORD WORK- I like my____. / LETTER ART- Humpty Dumpty / MONTHLY ART- winter hat / MATH- identify numbers 7-12 using dice / WRITING AROUND THE ROOM
SOCIAL STUDIES: We read several books about Martin Luther King, Jr. Ask your child if they remember the name of his famous speech (I have a dream..) and if they remember who Rosa Parks was.
SCIENCE: We watched a video about wind. We will continue with this topic next week.
