What we are learning: 

*Behavior: We are continuing to practice our classroom rules and expectations daily.  We are not only able to talk about the expectations, but we will be showing how to act within the classroom and school setting. We now are in the full swing of class Dojo, so please keep a tabs on the positive behaviors that you see and talk to your child about all of their points that they are learning.  I love giving positive points. You should see the smiles on the kiddos faces when they earn points.   

*Letters: This will be our first week to begin our reading curriculum.  We will go through the entire alphabet throughout the next three weeks introducing five letters per week at a time.  This week: Qq-Zz.  We will be reviewing: Aa-Pp. 

*Words: We will continue to work on the words "a" and "to" this week.  We will do a lot of word practice so please continue to help your child to practice extra on these words from home.  It would be greatly appreciated.  We will be reviewing: am, I, the, little. 

*Writing: This week we continue to work on writing our names with a capital letter at the beginning and lowercase for the rest of the letters.  We are also learning how to write straight lines, arcs, and circles.  The shapes help us write our letters on a daily basis. We will also begin to work on journals this week with an emphasis on copying from the board, and correct letter formation.  We will also be working on the importance of finger spaces and periods.   

*Math: We will be working on how to write our numbers from 0-10.  We will also work on counting to 30, and counting to 100 by 10's. Review: one on one correspondence, and dot to dot. We are also working on grouping objects together, sorting items, as well as learning about making graphs. 

*Home practice: (It would be great if you would spend 15 extra minutes daily on the areas below).

    -Letters and letter sounds: A-z

    -Our sight words: I, am, the, little   

    -Personal Growth: buttoning and unbuttoning pants/jackets, using manners, and cleaning up their space are the areas we are working
       on in class.  Any extra help from home would be appreciated. 

        **We are also really focusing on keeping our space clean at the lunch table and within our work space in the classroom.
