News for the week of October 12th

Farm Theme

This week we will be introducing a farm theme. We will be talking about what animals you might find on a farm. We will be going to a real farm (Schuster's Playtime Farm) next week, Tuesday, October 20th and we will be making farm art projects and much more!

Jolly Phonics

Our letter sound of the week is "T". The Jolly Phonics action for the letter /t/ sound is to turn your head from side to side, as if you are watching tennis, and say t,t,t,t. See the video below to watch the letter "T" song.

Rainbow Letters Program

This past week we did our first challenge in our Rainbow Letters Program! We did the purple letters and sounds challenge. The purple letters (L,F,E,H) are the first four letters we have learned in 4K! Remember the letter rings we gave you at the open house? You can use those to help your child practice for these challenges. If your child was able to "pass" the purple letters or sounds they should have received purple certificates. If they still need to practice we sent home a rainbow letter challenge sheet. If they have practiced at home and are ready to take the purple letters or purple sounds challenge again just send back the bottom of the sheet. We hope this will be a fun and motivating way to help your child learn the alphabet letters and sounds! Please let me know if you have any questions about this program.
