What we are learning
This week we will begin a new theme called “Let’s Move!” where we will have fun moving our bodies! We will read stories about the different ways we move, such as running, skipping, sliding, and jumping.
The new letter this week is Jj. We will complete a jellyfish craft, sort Jellybeans, explore green Jello Playdoh and celebrate St. Patrick’s day. Remember to wear green on Friday! The naughty leprechaun usually makes a visit to our classroom to mess up our room while he searches for his gold!
Please continue to review all of the letters and letter sounds we have learned so far (Ss,Tt,Pp,Oo,Yy,Bb,Uu,Ff,Xx,Ww,Zz,Mm,Aa,Rr,Cc,Qq,Vv). Please also work on helping your student memorize your telephone number.
We will continue to review our sight words previously learned:
I, see, like, a, he, she
Please work on these at home!
Jumping Jack or Jill – Make a stick puppet. Tell your child that the figure is Jumping Jack or Jill and that he/she likes the letters Jj. Look for Jjs in newspaper and magazine headlines with your child. Have him/her make the puppet “jump” each time he/she sees Jj.
Stories – Your child will listen to the story “The Gingerbread Man” on Wednesday. Ask him/her to talk about the story and name the characters that try to catch the gingerbread man. Share other versions of this story with your child.
