Happy New Year! Along with the new year comes a lot of new things we will be learning. Among them are new words, new prayers, new color words, and so much more!
Fundations, we have finished learning all the letters of the alphabet both
capital and lower case. The children should be able to identify their sounds
and write them on lined paper. In your child's folder you will find a
new Fundations packet for Unit Three. This packet has a lot of valuable
information that reinforces concepts we are working on. It is a great
reinforcement for all students. Please use these packets to practice
the skills at home.
Math: We continue
with a new pattern and shape this month. We are doing an AABB pattern
using parallelograms. We will be working on counting forward to 70,
counting back from 10 to 0, and counting by tens.
All during the month of December the Wise Men have been traveling around
the room. Each day the children would tell me where they were. This
past Sunday, January 5th, was the Epiphany, the Wise Men arrived at the
New News: We are starting to write our names in lower case letters. Although many know how to do this, we ask that you practice this with your child so it will be an easier transition for them. Most importantly, watch that they are forming the letters correctly.
New Year, new folders. The new folders are the same type as we have been using but it is more important for your child to bring in their folders every day. There will no longer be any stickers going home daily with the children when they keep three baseballs. To keep them motivated, we will start a new program. On each of the children's folders you will find a baseball chart. Every day we will stamp one box if your child keeps all three of their baseballs. If they loose any baseballs they will not get a stamp. Once they fill up the whole chart, they will be able to go into the treasure box and pick a surprise of their choice. When they fill up the chart, we will replace the chart with a new one and they begin again. This program will be used until the end of the school year.
to February 1st - Catholic Schools Week
