This week we will learn about the five senses (hearing, sight, touch, taste, and smell). Using the topic “Using My Senses,” we will read stories about how people use their senses. Our new letter this week is the letter Tt. We will be reviewing the other letters learned so far (Ss and Pp). We will also be working on simple patterns.
We go outside two times each day. (Once in the morning and once in the afternoon after our nap and snack time) Please make sure to send coats, hats, mittens, scarves, etc. as the weather gets colder.
Teddy Bear Day – Friday is Teddy Bear Day. Have your child bring a teddy bear to school.
Our school is having a book fair this week. If you would like to purchase any books, please send the money in a bag or envelope. We will take students each day to purchase books. If you write a check, please make it out to Nansemond Parkway Elementary.
*Tt Poster – Go on a Tt hunt around your house. Find objects whose names begin with Tt. Write and place labels on these objects or make a list that you can read later.
*Guessing Game – Play a senses guessing game with your child. For example, say “I hear a loud ringing sound.” Encourage your child to guess what you are describing. Take turns saying clues that begin I hear ____, I see ____, I taste ____, I feel ______, and I smell _______.
