A Peek in Our Week
Here's What's Coming Up This Week
Language Arts-Practice letter sounds, vowels/consonants, trick words (add be, me, they), sky writing and letter formation, basic sentence structure. We will do some copy work with fall words and do trick word games and activities.
Saxon Math-Practice ordinal numbers, identify missing numbers, order numbers 1-10, count backwards, do some fall dot-to-dots, and play bingo using the number formation songs.
Bible-Our Bible memory passage for October is Philippians 2:5-8 (in folder); working on verse 7 this week. We will practice for a skit for Thursday's assembly.
Around the World-This week we will begin our two week unit on animal classification, using the books The Button Box and Fur and Feathers. We will learn an animal classification song, practice sorting various items, learn the characteristics of mammals and birds, do some drawing and make an edible owl.
Reminders-Box Tops are due this Thursday, October 20th! No school on Tuesday, but I look forward to meeting with each of you during our parent-teacher conferences! Also, I will be leading assembly this week and your children will be acting out a story on Thursday. Hope you can all join us! (I will send out a reminder later.)
A little band aid fun after finishing their "OUCH!" project!
