An inside look at what your child is learning
We love fall!
Also, please remember to send your child to school with a jacket and closed-toe shoes. It is beginning to get cold outside, and in order to be safe and enjoy recess we want to make sure everyone is dressed appropriately.
Our class has been talking about location words and phrases. Your student should be able to describe where things are using words like "above," "beside," or "near." We used fun things like magnets and a wooden bead maze to move objects around and talk about different positions.
Your child has been practicing identifying numbers 1-10. Point out some numbers while you drive or watch TV and ask your student to tell you what they are!
The Letter P
This week we have been learning the letter P. Next Friday, our class will have a "P-Party" where we will wear pink and purple and have a show-and-tell for things that begin with P. Help your student be creative in thinking of different P items to bring!
Read, Read, Read!
I have listed a few of our classroom favorites that can be found in local bookstores and libraries:
