This week is Evaluation Week!!! 
We will be evaluating all the letters of the alphabet we have studied so far with their corresponding vocabulary. 

                         Letters Cc, Oo, Ll, Rr, and Uu

We will evaluate syllable countingbeginning and ending sounds, and rhyming words reading sight word sentences.

We are going to be evaluating the  21 sight words we have worked on in class and the ones from first quarter ( I sent a Power Point Presentation Home Last Quarter). Please make sure your child recognize these words by sight. Practicing at home daily will be very beneficial for your kid and helpful for us. The sight words they should know by now are: the,  as, with, his, they, of, at, be, this, have, see, or, four, had, by, can orange, green, black, five, six. It is very important for them to recognize all the words, since we are starting to do a lot of writing and reading activities. They are all very excited to know that they are starting to write and read on their own.

In Math, we will be reviewing numbers 0-18. The children should be able to recognize these numbers in and out of sequence, making sets to match each number and sequence the numbers in the correct order. We will also review the concepts Top, Middle Bottom, What number comes before? What number comes after? Which is more? Which is less? Making tally marks and using a ten frame to represent numbers
  






Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization

that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in

Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta

and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch

have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas

gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like

to provide for this Christmas. In the secondary building, second floor, a NPH Giving Tree bulletin board will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and socks. 

Purchase the new items and return them to Mrs. Agurcia’s

Room (Secondary Building, Rm. 7) by Tuesday, December 5th,unwrapped, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving

this Christmas!
