Our Week

This week we introduced letter Hh. Our Alphafriend is Hattie Horse! We have now introduced letters A-H. Please work with your child at home on writing, recognizing, and making the sounds of each letter.

During our day, we practice counting to 20. This is another skill we highly encourage to practice at home! Counting items around the house will help your child become more successful and feel independent and proud of themselves!

Winter Clothing:
We will be going outside twice a day for up to 30 mins each time until the “feels like” temperature is 21 degrees! Please send your child in a WINTER coat every day. Hats, gloves, and scarves are encouraged as well. They are more than welcome to begin bringing in snow pants to wear while we go outside. They can keep these in their backpack until it is time to put them on.

Next Week Schedule

Reminder of next weeks schedule:

-NO SCHOOL Tuesday (All students)

-HALF DAY on Thursday (PreK Only)

Our Week-

This week we introduced letter Gg. Our Alphafriend for this letter is Gertie Goose. Please continue to practice all of the letters we have already learned, along with this new one!

Many students are starting to recognize more letters, but we have many who do not recognize any at all. PLEASE work on letters at home! We want our children ready to start reading in Kindergarten, so this is important to focus on now.

We had lots of fun this week-make sure to check out our Google Photos account to see all the great pumpkin activities we worked on.

This Past Week

This week we introduced letter Ff, which was Fifi Fish! We also reviewed letters A, B, C, D, and E. In every child’s folder, there is a paper to practice writing those letters. We will be introducing Gg this upcoming week.
