This week we will focus on the city. Using the topic “The Busy, Busy City,” we will read stories about what it is like to live in the city and how people get around there. Our new letter this week is letter Qq. Please review the letters and letter sounds that we have learned this year with your child.
*Qq Hunt – Look at magazine and newspaper headlines with your child. Circle the words that begin with capital Q and lowercase q. Count the number of letters you find. You can also cut out or draw pictures of words beginning with Qq.
*We will read the story “City Mouse and Country Mouse” this week. Ask your child to tell what happens when the country mouse visits the city. Read other books abut the city with your child. Discuss what your child sees in the illustrations.
*We will begin to learn about money this week (pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters). Talk about each coin with your child and have them sort coins. Have your child count pennies. You could set up a “store” at home. Assign items a price and have your child count out pennies to “buy” an item. (Keep it very simple – use pennies only)
