This week, we are learning a new letter, Letter Xx. We will be working on learning the sound that Xx makes and looking at words that end with Xx (since there are not many words beginning with Xx). We will also read stories about patterns found in animals and objects. We are still reviewing the five senses as well. You can help your child by reviewing the letters that we have studied so far (S, T, P, and O). We are also working on number recognition and patterns in class.
We will have conferences by request before and after school on November 29, November 30, and December 1. If you would like to schedule a conference, please let me know.
Don’t forget to send in $3,00 for your child to participate in the fun United Way activities this week including a dance on Friday.
At Home Activities:
*Decorate Xx – write a large capital X and a small lowercase x on drawing paper. Spread glue on the letters and help your child decorate them with glitter, tissue paper, or other art materials. (This would be great to do with other letters as well.)
*We will be reading the book How the Zebra Got Its Stripes. Read other stories at home about animals. Talk about how the animals in the stories are alike and different.
*Play a letter matching game with your child. Write letters on index cards (make two cards for each letter). Turn them over and play a game of concentration. Have your child say the letter and the letter sound of the letter he/she chooses.
