Miss Cleasby's 4K News

News for the week of February 25th

Dental Health/Nutrition Theme

This week we will continue with our Dental Health/Nutrition theme. We will be cutting out foods from local grocery ads and deciding if they are healthy or unhealthy for our teeth. We will be playing a tooth math game and making art projects related to dental health. We will continue teaching students to write their names the "Kindergarten Way".

Jolly Phonics

Our Jolly Phonics letter of the week is "J". The action for the letter /J/ sound is to pretend to be jello wobbling on a plate and say /j/ /j/ /j/ /j/. See the letter J video below!

Star of the Week A.M.

Paige did a great job as "Star of the Week" a few weeks ago! Because of the snow day we recently made up a day in her "Star Week". Thanks Paige for having your mom come visit class and read us some of your favorite books!
