October 13, 2019
- Monday: No School.
- Tuesday: Picture Day. Children must wear school uniform, preferably no gym uniform, since this picture will be in the school yearbook.
- Thursday: Parent/Teacher Conferences.
- Friday: Field Trip to Seiple Farms. Children need to wear gym uniform, play sneakers may be worn and not the white school sneakers. Also, everyone needs to bring a packed lunch. We will eat in the classroom when we return, since we will miss our scheduled cafeteria time. Hot lunch will not be an option.
This is what we worked on this week:
RELIGION: We learned that prayer involves both listening and responding to God. We learned what the word ‘Amen’ means at the end of a prayer. We attended the Living Rosary on Thursday.
MATH: We are now focusing on printing and recognizing numbers 0-10. We are also learning ten frames.
Please continue to review position words: inside, outside, on, off, above, below, in front of, behind, beside. Practice these with your child at home using household objects.
Math Centers on Thursday and Friday. The activities included: Geoboards / Fall bump game with numbers / shape puzzles / Fall numbers and counting objects / paper shape designs / pumpkin counting / shape pictures / number puzzles / Ipads
LANGUAGE ARTS: We are now focusing one letter each week. This week our letter was Mm. We practiced words that begin with the /m/ sound and words that end with the /m/ sound.

We meet daily in small groups to practice letters, sounds, and reading short stories.
