September 21-25, 2015

Hello to each and everyone of you. :)


We have already ended our 5th week of school and I can't believe how fast it has gone. The children have been getting to know each other, how to work with each other and learning that being different is great! We will be continuing work on these skills all year long.

Please read below to see what we have learned this week. Have a wonderful weekend!

What Is Going On In The Classroom...

-Our book of the week was called, Call Me Alex. The book was about the first day of school and how the teacher had the children get to know each other. In the book the children were to tell the class what they liked to do and then draw it.

Your child did the same thing! We took a picture walk (we looked at each of the pages to see what the book might be about). We read the book. We talked about what each child in the room liked to do and made a list of those things. Then your child drew a picture of what they themselves liked to do!


-The children also sorted by color, shape and different animals. We discussed how important it is to sort objects even as we get older. We sort money (bills & coins), laundry, books, etc.


-We discussed the difference between uppercase and lowercase (big and small letters).


-We are going over the alphabet. The names of the letter, the sounds that they make and an picture to go with it.


Next week the book we will be focusing on will be, A Color of His Own by Leo Lionni.
