Falling Into Early Start

We are so excited about the progress we have made already. We continue to work on regulating our emotions. We are learning how to respond to the different emotions we have and the appropriate responses to our feelings. They appear to enjoy school and we certainly enjoy having them in our class. Thank you for sharing them with us. Mrs. Barrett and I really appreciate your support

Reminders
– Please work on putting on coats and zipping coats, as we are working to do so independently.
– Homework opportunities provide instructional support and allow parents to know what we are doing in class.
– Please send in a change of clothes appropriate for the change in weather.

We are focusing on the following sight words: see, I, is, like, a, she, here, and, he, the, we. See how many can be name. We have been talking about what makes vowels special.

Getting Ready for Kindergarten

 

What are we doing and How can you help at home?

These are our goals for the month of January.

Please spend about 10 minutes (daily) reviewing those skills taught in class (Bb, Yy, Tt, Uu, Xx, Ss, Ww, Ff, Pp, Ff, Aa, Zz). It is our goal that students recognize ALL the letters of the alphabet and be able to produce the sound for each letter by the end of the year. They should also be able to identify numerals 1-10 and count from 1-20.
Practice name writing (first and last name) and also practice writing those letters taught.
We are also working on doing neat and careful work. We want to always present our “BEST.”
Mrs. Barret and I are thrilled to partner with you in your child’s learning.  As always we appreciate your continued support.

Holiday Fun in Early Start

 

 

As the Winter Holidays approach us, we are sooooo excited about decorating our room and preparing Christmas Crafts.  Parents, if you have a  favorite craft that you wish to share with our class during the month of December, we would love to have you.  As you prepare, please do consider the age of our students and their attention spans. Our activities are usually planned for about 20 minutes. Please let us know a week in advance so, that we may discuss details and include it in our lesson planning. We look forward to hearing from you.
