K5C Friday Features

Weekly Newsletter March 18

Bible News

We discussed the days leading up to the Lord's death on the cross for our sins. We are grateful for His sacrifice for our disobediences. How exciting that we love and serve a living Savior who rose victoriously from the grave! I pray that each little one will come to realize the price that was paid on Calvary for their sins and come to know Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.

Memory Verse: I Corinthians 15:3b-4

Character Trait: Initiate - Making the first move without being asked

LANGUAGE ARTS NEWS

We have continued to work on two vowels side by side (Miss Long and Miss Silent) as well as Miss Long standing alone (word with one vowel but makes the long sound as in me, we, my, cry, etc.). This can be challenging for the children, so just keep having them tell you how many vowels they see and go from there. Word family: he, we, be, me, she and so, no, go

Word Families for Review:

-oat as in boat, coat, goat and float

-oad as in road, toad and load

-ow as in tow, bow, mow, row, grow

Service Word: two (in Friday folder)

Reader: The Train Ride (in Friday folder)

New Phonics Stories: The Boat and The Snow Day (in Friday folder)


As we are adding new phonics skills each week, review and practice become increasingly important. Please continue with the systematic review of service word flashcards and the new word family strips. This "homework" is an important key to success.

Math News

We discovered different ways to picture the numbers 7, 8, 9 and 10 using 2 sets. We used subtraction to review the importance of sharing with others. We also used a different kind of subtraction to find the missing part of a whole.

A LOOK AHEAD

Spring Break

Just a reminder that we will not have school next Wednesday-Friday, March 23-25.


March 30 and April 5-8 are important dates to remember! These are achievement testing dates for K5.

It is very important that the children are well rested, eat a good, hearty breakfast and arrive on time. Many of our sessions begin at the start of the school day so punctuality is vitally important these days.


Since this testing requires a lot of energy from our children, I would like to have you volunteer to provide nutritious snacks (popcorn, fruit, cheese or peanut butter crackers, carrot sticks, small sandwiches, muffins, etc.) for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Also, we will need 17 juice boxes for each of these days. If you are able to help, please click the link below and sign up on the slot you would like to provide. The children and I greatly appreciate your kindness!
