The children had lots of fun learning and playing with their new friends this week! In Math we reviewed shapes and colors. We did sorting activities in Centers, did some color and shape worksheets and read books to reinforce these concepts. Your children also had fun making shapes out of Playdoh! We began our first phonics lesson by reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom to introduce the alphabet letters and the class did a craft to coincide with the book. Next week we will continue our phonics lesson with our first "letter of the week" and the children will practice writing the letter correctly as well as learn the letter sound as a precursor to reading. Our first Religion lesson led to a discussion about what preschool activities they are looking forward to doing throughout the year. I will send home the Religion lesson each week so you can review the themes with your children.
Just a reminder that if your children do not come to school on certain days of the week or are absent, I will always send the school work home in their folders.
Have a great weekend everyone!
