Last Week...February 1st-4th
- Wow...what a crazy weather week! Let's hope for 4 days next week instead of 2:)
- Thursday, we drew our February self portraits. The children are doing such a good job adding details to their drawings. We had the chance to take a look back at previous pictures to see how we are changing in skills. You will have a chance to take a look at them at Parent/Teacher Conferences in March.
- We talked about our five senses. Continue discussing what our five senses are and having your child be able to explain what sense they are using during activities. For example: What sense are you using when...
- Reading a book (see with eyes)
- Eating dinner (taste with mouth)
- Riding in the car with the radio on (hear with ears)
- Playing with play dough (touch with hands)
- Drawing with smelly markers (smell with nose)
- We worked on number 1 & 2 worksheets. As I looked over the sheets, I noticed a few children might have missed some parts of the activity. Take a look with your child and see if they can notice what they forgot to complete on the sheet, We are continuing to practice for homework/math sheets they will receive next year as Kindergartners.
This Week... February 8th-11th
- We will be practicing reading skills with a pocket chart about opposites. I will be introducing the words "I" and "am".
- I will be introducing writing paper with a sentence line at the bottom. I will model an "I am" sentence using one of our opposite words from the pocket chart. I will encourage the children to practice writing an "I am" sentence too. Continue having your child draw and write letters/words at home.
- At community circle, I will ask the children to say one nice thing about the friend sitting next to them. Compliment your child and see if they can give other family members a compliment.
- I will be sending home another math game called Cover That Number. It deals with numbers 11-20. The children can continue working on identifying and counting higher numbers. See if your child can explain the game to you...we will practice at school before sending it home.
