Dewberry Farm Field Trip $ Due
Parents, if you are planning on attending, please let me know. You will purchase your ticket at the gate when you arrive. The cost will be $6.00.
The children are really reluctant about reading and writing. They do not seem to feel confident in what they are able to do. I am trying to encourage them to do what they can and if it is their best it is all I can ask for, or ever want! Today we watched Leap Frog Talking Word Factory as a model of how letters go together to make words. (The Leap Frog videos are great for learning letters and sounds.)
We also celebrated Madeleine's birthday with yummy cupcakes before recess!
This week we worked on the Frog Jump Letters. These are capital letters that start with a big line down and then you pick up your pencil and jump to the top. These letters include: B D E F M N P R. Please help your child practice writing and identifying the letters. One way to practice is for you to write the lower case and have them identify it and write the capital with it. Each time they write the letter have them say its name.
In math we are working on length. Using language such as longer, shorter, and the same in describing the length of different objects. They children are doing very well. We are also discussing ordinal numbers 1st through 6th. Our number necklaces allows us to review the digits as well as talk about the language.
