September 22, 2014

Last week, we reviewed the four basic shapes (circle, triangle, rectangle, and square).   We traced each shape, made pictures with them, and used shapes to create a face after reading the book, Making Faces with Shapes.  Please review shapes with your child as well as naming colors and counting to 20. Use everyday things to teach and review concepts.  For example:  What color is that car?  How long will it take you to put away your shoes? (Count to see)  Play I Spy using shapes and colors (I spy something that is a red square).

This week we will be focusing more on letters.  We will decorate our names with shapes, pom poms, and other fun things.  We are working on identifying our first names.  Also we will introduce the positional words in front of, behind, and in the middle.  You can practice these at home using any objects.  Have your child tell what is in the middle, in front, or behind.    We will discuss friendship and practice cutting skills by cutting out pictures from magazines that show friends.

 

Bus Tags

We put a bus tag on each child’s book bag.  We will no longer put the bus tags around their necks as well.  We use the tags around their necks just for the first few weeks of school while we are still learning where each child goes in the afternoon.

 

Scholastic Book Order

If you would like to order books from the Scholastic Book Club flyer that I sent home last week, please send in your order by Friday.  You can send cash, write a check (made out to Scholastic Book Club), or order online using the code at the top of the flyer.  If you have any questions, please let me know.

Notes:

  • If there is anything you need for me to know, feel free to write a note in your child’s composition book or you can send me an email at annamcleod@spsk12.net.   I check my email first thing in the morning, during nap time (around 1:45) and at the end of the day.
  • Please check your child’s folders daily.  Any papers in their folders can be kept at home.
  • If your daughter wears a dress, please have her wear shorts under her dress.

Please let them get familiar with typing it in the computer. Also, please remember to check their folders daily for behavior and notes home.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask about anything.
