   What a great week! It has been such a blast getting to know these boys and girls. I genuinely love having conversations with all of these children and getting to know more about them! We worked on the letters in our name this week and completed name puzzles. We talked about how capital letters stay at the beginning of the name, and we use lowercase letters for the rest. At circle time, everyone was super excited to learn that the capital I is a letter that’s also a word! I’ve noticed children seeing capital I in books and excitedly showing their friends that they can read it. We’re all readers already! Next week we’ll write our first “I sentences”. Everyone is getting used to our calendar time routine, reading the sentences and counting the numbers. The children are also quickly picking up on how to read our weather graph, and they know which weather is in the lead for September. When we read books during circle time, we discuss the setting/characters/plot. I introduced those words this week and everyone did a wonderful job remembering what had happened in the book. This class is full of fast and eager learners! We also made an alphabet chart and saw which letter everyone’s name starts with.

 For math this week, I put out a Rosh Hashanah number matching game. We are working on counting and number recognition and doing well. We also read Pete the Cat Rocking in His School Shoes, and then used unifix cubes to measure everyone’s shoes. I think this class is going to love measuring. After one measuring activity I noticed a lot of children pulling out the rulers.

 Please send in a pillowcase for rest item storage. We’ve also been using a lot of extra clothes because of our wonderful wet sand box, so I’ll send home reminders for anyone who is missing anything from their boxes.

 

 

Reminders:

  • There is no school on Monday, September 10 or Tuesday, September 11.
  • Please make sure your child has a complete change of clothing, bedding and an earthquake kit in their cubby.
  • Please check your child’s folder (by the sign-in papers) for any important information.

Have a great long weekend and a wonderful holiday!
