Dear Parents,

Wow! Is it really already Thanksgiving? Time has flown by so quickly since school began.  It has been so much fun watching each child grow socially, academically, and emotionally.  It is amazing to see all their changes.  At this time, everyone is reading from books, writing some words on their own, and now learning how to add.  Life is amazing in a kindergarten classroom! Thank you for all you are doing to partner with me in helping your child learn, grow, and love Jesus.

I feel like the next month is going to be crazy, fun, and very busy! As December quickly approaches, our classroom lives become filled with many fun and wonderful activities with the children while trying to concentrate on the importance of learning new skills.  Be  patient, with us, as we embark on this magical time of the year with your young children!

Here’s what we did this week:

RELIGION:  We became a member of God’s family at our Baptism.  Baptism is a sacrament.  At Baptism, each child was anointed with a special oil called chrism.  Each of us continue each day to grow in Jesus’ love.  Ask your child why they wore “white” at their Baptism and why the Priest poured water on them.

MATH:  We have now begun to practice addition.  We are practicing how to put two groups of objects together to find out “how many in all.”  The children have been introduced to the “+” and “=” signs.  Learning to add is so much fun!  It is so important to continue helping your child practice identifying the numbers 0-10 through various number forms:  ten frames, tally marks, number words,  numbers that are more, less, greater than, less than, and counting on from a given number through 10.  Your child should now be able to print the numbers 0-10; count objects; identify the position of an object as first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth; recognize what comes next in a given pattern; and be on their way to counting to 100.  (Some children get confused when counting their teens.  Please listen carefully to your child when they count.)  

LANGUAGE ARTS:  This week, we learned about the letters Nn and Cc.  We have been spending a lot of time practicing how to “blend” sounds to read words.  At this time, your child should begin to blend 3-letter words and then read them smoothly.  This is a very important skill for children to learn.  

Did you know that your child is beginning to write their own sentences about their own drawing.  Some children are able to write a three-four word sentence.  We are now talking about the importance of each sentence beginning with a capital letter and putting an “ending” mark at the end.  (period, question mark, exclamation point)  

Thank you so much for helping your child develop a love for reading.  I hope you enjoy listening/helping your child read the books they bring home each week.  I am very thankful that the books are being returned the next day.   

It takes a lot of practice and repetition for a child to be able to store their “sight words/heart words” in their brain.  We practice these words on a daily basis in our small groups and whole group.  Thank you for continuing to practice these words on a daily basis at home.

Next week’s letters: Oo

CENTERS:   1.  Teacher Table: Beginning sounds and rhyming    2.  I Can Build a Turkey (letters/sounds)    3.  Art:  Thanksgiving Placemat    4.  Osmo Numbers   5.  Art:  Pilgrim Art (their own)    6.  Number Puzzles   7.  Listening   8.  Turkey Dinner Snap Cubes

SOCIAL STUDIES/SCIENCE:  We are spending time learning about the First Thanksgiving, weather, and shapes we see in our environment.

It is so important that you review and practice any papers that come home in your child’s folder on a daily basis.  Your child is continually learning new skills.  New skills are built on previous skills that have been taught.  Reviewing and practicing your child’s letter and number skills will help them to feel confident in all they do in school.

Weekly reflection:  I am so thankful that the living One who sees me always is the same One who loves me eternally! 

Enjoy your week.  Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy this special time with family and friends.
