What's Happening?

January 2020
Language Arts:

We have finished meeting all the SuperKids and we are excited to learn more about them and the adventures they go on via our reading books. The kids will be prompted to draw their ideal clubhouse and use a sentence to describe it. Let the writing begin! Keep encouraging your child to write down the sounds they hear while writing and stretching out words. Letter Rr will be our focus this week.  Please be sure to practice any booklets or stories that come home.  Extra practice and reinforcement at home really makes a difference! Continue to monitor the "b" and "d" reversal at home. This is a common issue and we will continue to review in class too!

We will be learning about Jesus and his ministry for the next few weeks. This week's focus will be on Jesus and how he loves children and asks them to come to him. 

“‘Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name,
10 your kingdom come,
your will be done,
    on earth as it is in heaven.

11 Give us today our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts,
    as we also have forgiven our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation,[a]
    but deliver us from the evil one.[b]

For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory forever.

Matthew 6:9-13

**Red section will be due on January 31

Unit 8 is all about numbers 20 and beyond. This works out nicely since later in the month of January we will be celebrating 100 day. In anticipation of this, the kids will be doing more skip counting and learning how to fill out a 100 chart. We will also review the terms greater and less  and how that relates to the new numbers we are learning.

Science/Social Studies:

  In January we will focus on weather. The kids will enjoy charting the weather each day. We will also address seasons. Comparing/contrasting and learning the order of the seasons will be a focus. 

Weekly Enrichment:

1. Work on your 100 day project.

2. Begin to practice writing your last name.

3. Can you name the vowels and write them down?

4. Write A, O, C, G, D, S , L, I , T, F, E, H, U, B, R on cards and write a, o, c, g, d, s, l, i, t, f, e, h, u , b, r on cards and practice matching them up.

5. Practice writing #1-100.
