This week

This week we learned the letters V and X. We talked about the sounds those letters make and things that start with those letters. We found the lettersVv and Xx in words all week long. Some of the students have the letter x in their names. We practiced counting sets of up to 10 objects and we reviewed colors and shapes and numbers. Please practice shapes and colors at home.

KIDS ARE SPECIAL PEOPLE!

Extra Clothes!

Everyone please send a weather appropriate set of clothes for us to keep at school. Some kids have no extra clothes and some have shorts and short sleeve shirts. Clothes are kept in each child's cubbie labeled with their name. If we spill something or have a potty accident, the students will have their own clothes to change into. Thank you for your help with this!!!

Early Dismissal

Friday December 18th is an early dismissal day! Parent pick up will be around 11:15 and buses will run at about 11:20.

Backpacks & Folders

*Send backpack EVERYDAY

*NO backpack, NO bus! Child will have to be Parent Pick up.
*Check backpack & folder every night

*Return any important forms/paper back to school.

Illness

If your child feels bad, please keep them at home. They won't be learning if they are feeling miserable and they could pass an illness on to the other children (and teachers!). Our Head Start Nurse works very hard to keep us all healthy. If you have any questions or concerns, please call Nurse Bryer at 903.609.4834.


***If your child is absent from school, they will be counted PRESENT if they complete their See Saw activity for the day!!!!


The custodians are working extra diligently to keep everything cleaned and sanitized and keep cooties at bay. We appreciate everything they do to keep our school clean and healthy.

Things to Work on at home:

You can help us by going over the following things at home:

*Colors (ask your child to find things of a certain color when you are at home or out and about)

*Shapes (look for shapes everywhere)

*Counting 1-10

*Count sets of objects (up to 10)

*READ, READ, READ BOOKS! READ BOOKS AND TALK ABOUT THEM. ASK YOUR CHILD QUESTIONS ABOUT THE STORY AND WHAT THEY THINK MIGHT HAPPEN NEXT. ASK THEM TO SEQUENCE THE STORY AFTER YOU'VE READ IT OR WHY THEY THINK SOMETHING HAPPENED OR SOMEBODY DID SOMETHING. YOU CAN NEVER READ TOO MUCH TO YOUR CHILDREN!

*Names. Students should know their first and last names.
