This week we got through letters U-Y... we're almost at the end of the alphabet! We will learn Z on Monday, but we will continue to practice letter recognition and sounds throughout the year. We added a new sight word to our word wall - the. We are becoming experts at writing "I like the __________." sentences! A new reading strategy was introduced as well. Peekin' Poodle! Just like the Eagle Eye, Peekin' Poodle reminds you to look at the pictures, but peeks at the pictures and then at the beginning letter of the unknown word. Peek at the pictures, and peek at the letters! Continue to practice sight words and finger-pointing with your child at home. We also started learning the Tricky Teens. Just like when we bundle our straws in the morning to count the number of days in school, we know that the 1 in a teen number stands for a bundle of ten! Play the "Ten and a Friend" game at home. Choose a teen number and then work together with your child to hold up the matching number of fingers!
Check out the fire safety pictures below!
Write a Lowercase v in the Air!
Our letter songs have us practice "sky-writing" the letters in the air! Try this at home.
Putting teen numbers in order can be tricky! Nice job friends.
Arianna and Brendan are hard at work writing some fire safety labels.
Firefighter Ted got down on the carpet so we could all feel his firefighting gear.
We got a tour from the inside out!
Everybody got a chance to spray the fire hose!
We sure learned A LOT from our firefighter friends today, but the most important things to remember are the three things you should tell an operator after you dial 911.
1. Your name
2. Your address
3. The problem
Remind your children of these three things. Also talk with your child about a family meeting place in case of a fire in the home.
