Ms. Yeager's Class Bulletin

November 11-15, 2013

Hello Parents!

As the semester is winding down, I hope all of you and your bright students are enjoying themselves and all of their new learning. This week we are focusing on identifying rhyming words and what makes a word rhyme. So far, they are loving it.

Rhyming Picture Art

The current student art display in my classroom consists of their rhyming pictures. They have a target word and are tasked to come up with and draw a word that rhymes with it. The chance they have to create is so much fun for them. They truly come up with some fantastic things!

What You Can Do At Home

There are several things you can do at home to enrich your child's learning and understanding about rhyming words. For example, giving them a word such as "king" and asking them to find rhyming items around the house or cut them out of a magazine to make a collage.

In addition to our learning about rhymes, your students keep improving their skills in shape identification and counting. Whenever you are at home and doing things that involve counting, I suggest letting your little learners help you out. They always jump at the chance to show you how much they have learned!

Upcoming Topics

As we wind up our time focusing on rhymes, we are going to move into science and animal identification. This will mesh nicely with our trip to the zoo, which is quickly approaching. Seeing the animals in real life always helps solidify the children's ideas of the animals.

Day at the Zoo

Friday, Dec. 6th, 9am

6200 Hermann Park Drive

Houston, TX

Don't forget to fill out your child's permission slip for our upcoming trip to the Houston Zoo. I sent them home with your students two weeks ago. If for some reason it has become misplaced, let me know and I will send another one home. I also still have spots available for chaperones. This is such a fun trip and I would hate to have you all miss out on it, especially because the weather will be so nice!

Other Quick Reminders

  • Library day is Friday so make sure your students bring their books to return.
  • Our Thanksgiving Feast is coming up in a few weeks. I will send home more information about that at the beginning of next week.
  • There will be no school the Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday surrounding Thanksgiving so that students may spend time with their families.

Questions, Comments, Concerns?

If you have any questions for me at all about your child's learning, please contact me and let me know. I would be more than happy to talk to you about their progress or anything that you can do to help them outside of the classroom. Enrichment at home is undeniably helpful in skill acquisition.
