Where is the time going? We have 9 school days left! We are going to have fun and soak up these last several days together! Please continue to practice the skills we work on at school when your child comes home. Keep building their independence to do things themselves. They have grown so much from the beginning of the year! Here’s what we have going on this week.
What We Are Learning…
We have taken the next step and begun writing our names. Please continue to practice recognizing the letters in your child’s name and the order in which they go (Rajaa- R-a-j-a-a). Remember, only the first letter in their name is a capital, all the rest are lowercase (Rajaa). We have added learning our last names to the list as well. Please help your child learn their last name along with how to spell it and writing it.
Our letter journey has come to an end. We will continue to review and practice the letters until the end of the year.
Please review letters and sounds- Ll- Larry Lion, Ff- Fifi Fish, Ee- Edna Elephant, Hh- Hattie Horse, Tt- Tiggy Tiger, Ii- Iggy Iguana, Uu- Umbie Umbrella, Cc- Callie Cat, Oo- Ozzie Octopus, Qq- Queenie Queen, Gg- Gertie Goose, Ss- Sammy Seal, Jj- Jumping Jill, Dd- Dudley Duck, Pp= Pippa Pig, Bb- Benny Bear, Rr- Reggie Rooster, Kk- Keely Kangaroo, Aa- Andy Apple, Vv- Vinny Volcano, Mm- Mimi Mouse, Nn- Nyle Noodle, Ww- Willy Worm, Xx- Mr. X-Ray, Yy- Yetta Yo-yo, Zz- Zelda Zebra
We have completed our number journey! Please work with your child on recognizing these numbers along with writing them. You can also have your child count out items for each number (quantity). Some other number activities include giving them 2 piles and asking them to count each pile and state the number after they count. You can also ask “which pile has more/ less? How many more/ less?”
We have previously learned numbers: 0- zero, 1- one, 2- two, 3- three, 4- four, 5- five, 6- six, 7- seven, 8- eight, 9- nine, 10- ten, 11- eleven, 12- twelve, 13- thirteen, 14- fourteen, 15- fifteen, 16- sixteen, 17- seventeen, 18- eighteen, 19- nineteen, 20- twenty
Please continue to review shapes with your child. Please look for these shapes at home and when you are out with your child.
Previously learned shapes are- circle, triangle, square, rectangle, oval, diamond, pentagon, hexagon, star and heart.
* Please dress your child for the weather since we do go outside when the weather cooperates. We have chilly mornings and many children do not have jackets and complain about being cold.
* Please pay attention to the dates on the calendar since we have days off and special events in the coming weeks. The calendar can be found on the iblog and in the Remind app.
* Thursday May 23rd is Bike Day! Your child may bring a bike or scooter to school that they can ride. No motorized bikes or scooters. Please make sure they have a helmet to wear while they are riding.
* No school Monday May 27th! Enjoy the long weekend and hopefully the weather cooperates!
