As for our academics this week...
Literacy: Our theme this week is animals and their habitats. We will read some very fun stories: Home For Tiger, Home For Bear and Tiger Splash. This week we focus on the sound /b/ and meet Benny Bear our alphafriend. We also learn two more sight words: are & now. The kiddos are really working hard on their sight words and I know many of you are practicing at home. Keep it up!!
Religion: This week we learn about the Holy Family and Jesus' earthly father, Joseph. We will hear a story of Joseph's trust in God and discuss how we can show our trust in God too.
Math: This week we will review our numbers 1-100! We will have a math assessment on this lesson this week. We'll begin a new lesson midweek focusing on sequential events and focus on using the vocabulary "first, next and last".
It's great to be back! And I hope that we can keep K2 healthy for the next couple of weeks so everyone can enjoy a heathly and happy Christmas break. What a yucky germ season this fall has been. Here's to a smoother and less sniffly 2018!!
Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
