Read a book or tell a story to your child.
Count steps, windows, spoons, forks, cars in the street, etc.
Have your child write their name.
Talk to your child about his/her feelings.
Model good behavior.
Spend some time alone with your child.
To reinforce letter recognition and writing skills have your child use play-doh to form letters. Other options are to write with shaving cream and sand.
Next week we will be working on last names. Students will need to put the letters in order to form their last name and then name the letters.
Currently, our next letter will be the letter O,o. Please go over letters with your child daily.
Students have been exploring with different materials. They have been using their 5 Senses to examine shaving cream, paint, sand and bubbles.
Everyday we go over counting to 100 and the letter sounds. Have your child count for you and ask them to give you some letter sounds.
We are still collecting empty returnable bottle, such as pop, to earn money for field trips. Please put the bottles in the box next to the classroom door.
