The children will be reminded that Christ will come again at the end of time. This week briefly we will talk about Pentecost due to this celebration will be held next Sunday.

Estrellita Phonics: Review all letter sounds to begin the lesson. The letters B, b and J,j is our focus for this week again due to the different letter sounds it makes when paired with different vowels (bandera, jirafa). Children will learn new words that begin with these consonant sounds. Children will be tracing and writing the letter forms and learning songs related to the letter sounds.


Have a wonderful week,

Blessings,


Sra. Raquel L., Sra. Farías and Sra. Laura P.
