Announcements:

Welcome back!!! I hope everyone has had a wonderful break. While the past two weeks have been very relaxing, I'm ready to get back in the swing of things. I'm especially ready to see the kiddos!

SEESAW

If you haven't already done so, please join SeeSaw. It is a wonderful tool that allows me to share pictures and videos of our learning in the classroom. It is completely private and the pictures/videos of your child go directly to you.

ALL ABOUT JANUARY!

This week, our theme is "January!" Throughout the week, we will be incorporating various activities to introduce the letter J. While at home, have your child spy for items that begin with J. They can also point out the letter J. Ask them if it is a capital or lowercase letter. Our Nursery Rhyme will be "Jack and Jill." Throughout the week, we will retell the story and act it out. We will also be focusing on identifying, building, and writing our names. Some kiddos have mastered writing their first name. Those that are ready will begin to writing their last name. In math, we will be learning about the number 5. We will also be focusing on opposites. The color blue will be introduced and shapes will be reviewed.
