The letter of the week is letter Zz.
We will be making a zoo craft and reading a zoo book. Please
continue to review all the letters and letter sounds that we have learned so
far this year. Daily review makes a big
difference. We are also practicing
sorting objects. We sort shapes by size,
color, and shape. Have your child
practice sorting things at home and tell how he/she sorted the objects.
Reader Program – We hope that you are enjoying the books that are sent home
each Wednesday. Please return the books
each Tuesday. We will give you new books
each Wednesday. You can have your child
picture read the books, find letters, or tell you what is happening in the
*Zz Collage – write Zz at the top of
a large piece of paper. Help your child
find Zz and pictures of objects whose names begin with Zz in magazines or
catalogs. Glue them onto the paper. You can also draw your own pictures of Zz
objects. If you do a collage, please
send it in to share with the class.
*Play letter and letter sound games
to review letters.

Suffolk Reader Program
Blue book bags will come home every
Thursday. They should be returned the following Tuesday so that the bags can be rotated to another
student. If not, you will see a reminder in your child’s binder and
please send it back the next day. Please enjoy reading these books with your
family, or just have your student look at the pictures, identify letters, and
picture-read to you. You could keep the bag in the car for your child to
read while riding, or even by their bed so they can read them at night. I
hope this is exciting for them!
