Here is a message from our principal, Mrs. Wilkerson
What have we been doing so far?
In Module 1 we learned all about toys. We learned how to express which toys we prefer and why. We learned about toys from long ago and we learned that our imaginations are an important part of play. We read the books “Llama Llama Time to Share,” “Toys Galore,” “Have Fun Molly Lou Melon” and “Playing with Friends.”
We will be starting Module 2 after fall break. We will have fun learning all about weather and how the combination of sun, wind and clouds make the weather. We will learn that weather occurs in patterns that we can measure and predict.
Some skills that your child will be working on are: concepts of print, identifying the name, shape and sound of letters, identifying rhyming words and syllables in words.
Ways to support your student at home:
Discuss these questions with your child…
What toys do others prefer and why do they prefer them?
What makes the weather?
Read books and sing songs about weather.
Observe the weather daily and record it using pictures and words.
Practice identifying letters and how to form them and the sounds they make. We have learned the letters, a, t, p, h, n, k, and c. We will be learning letters m, r, v, s, g, and i.
Be on the lookout for these high-frequency words in your everyday life, “I’, “the”, “in”, “he” and “on”.
Point to words as you read aloud.
Practice rhyming words with the “ut” or “ed” sound.
In math the 1st 9 weeks we focused on:
