    This week, we will learn about community helpers such as firefighters, police officers, teachers, doctors and nurses.  We will read stories about how people in a community help each other.  We are also learning the letter P.  We will practice naming the letter, saying the letter sound, and make a list of things that begin with the letter P.

    Pajama Day:

    We will have a pajama day this Friday to celebrate the letter P.  Please see the letter in your child’s folder explaining more about this fun day!

     

    Raising a Reader Bags

    Raising a Reader Bags go home each Wednesday.  Please return them to school the following Tuesday so that we have time to check the bags in order to give them out on Wednesday.  We hope you are enjoying reading these books with your child.

     

    Home Activities:

    1.  Pp card – fold a piece of drawing paper in half.  Write Pp on the front of the card.  Name the letters and have you child repeat their names.  Look for picture of things that start with Pp in magazines or newspapers.  Cut out the pictures and help your child to glue them to the inside of the card.
    2.  Practice cutting – have your child practice cutting out simple shapes or pictures. Practice is the key to learning how to cut.
