Letter Uu Week!

This week we will be doing crafts for the Christmas holiday, umbrella activities and discussing bears and hibernation.  Our new unit begins this week, “The Four Seasons”. We will be reading books about the weather and talking about the seasons of the year.  The new letter this week is Letter Uu. Please review the letter/letter sound and finding Uu’s at home with your child, as well as our other letters (S,T,P,O,X).  Your child should be able to recognize the letters and tell the sound of the letters that we have learned so far in class.

Last week I sent home a letter check-up sheet about the letters we’ve learned. Please review any highlighted information with your child! He/she should know all of the letters and sounds we’ve learned.

Letter Xx Week!

Letter “Xx” Week
This week, we are learning a new letter, Letter Xx. We will be working on learning the sound that Xx makes and words that end with Xx (fox, box, etc. since there are not many words beginning with Xx).
Also, ask your child what his/her five senses are and what body part we use for each (smell, taste, see, touch, hear)! You can help your child by reviewing the letters that we have studied so far (S,T,P,O).

I will send home letter check-up form for the letters we have learned already. Please review the letters we have already learned over Thanksgiving break with your child, especially if I highlighted any of the information.
