Thank you all for coming in last Friday for conferences. I hope everyone had a great weekend.
UN Day Celebration is on Friday October 27th. This is a half day for the students. You are more than welcome to come and join us at 9:30. This is an early dismissal day for students. School lets out at 11:45
This week we are going to be working with the letter Cc.
The vocabulary words we are going to be focusing on are: cage, cucumber, camel, camera, candle, cap, carrots, clock, clown, cup, comb, corn, cafeteria, coins, and cousins.
In our Phonemic Awareness we are going to be doing Alliteration activities with the kids. What is alliteration? Alliteration is the use of the same consonant sounds in words that are near each other. It is the sound, not the letter that is important: therefore ‘candy’ and ‘Cindy’ do not alliterate, but ‘cool’ and ‘kids’ do. It is a great exercise to help our kids learn phonetic alphabet awareness and develop concentration and memory skills. For example:
Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers.
Sally swam silently in the sea.
The children will get the chance to do their own alliteration using their name!!!
Sight Words: These sight words were introduced last week and we will be working on them this week as well. Please practice these words at home with your child:
as, with,they his, of
In Math, we are going to be working with number 14 and continue our study with Ordinal Numbers
Kindergarten will be studying Brazil If you have any souvenirs, flags, costumes, songs etc. that you would like to share with our class please let me know.
Dress Up / Costume Day is around the corner. We are going to be having a celebration on Tuesday, October 31st. On this day students will come to school dressed up as their favorite book, or movie character.
If you would like to show your support for Fundacion Abrigo please send in 1 gallon of disenfectant.
