What's Happening?

October 2019
Language Arts:

There are 12 SuperKids that the children will be introduced to as the year goes on. We will complete our unit on Doc this week. By mid week we will begin our next unit on Sal.  Sal loves sports activities such as skiing, skateboarding, swimming and riding scooters. Sal speaks English and Spanish, so we will learn how to say "hello" or "good day" in Spanish.  We will learn the sound of the letter Ss, as well as how to write it correctly.  We have worked a lot on the beginning sounds in words, and we will continue to practice listening for the medial and ending sounds as well. We have begun to blend sounds together to build and read words, and we will build on that skill this week. You can practice building words such as Dad, Doc, dog, cod, gas, sad, Sal, Cass and cod. (using all of the letters we have learned so far.) In our writing lesson this week we will draw and label objects that begin with C, G, D and S.

Sight Words we should know:









Letters we should know:

Oo, Cc, Gg, Aa, Dd, Ss

Phonics Websites:


We will use this week to review all the Bible lessons we have studied so far. We will also spend some time this week working on our Fruit of the Spirit focus this month. This month we are focusing on the fruit of PEACE. We will discuss what peace is, and what peace looks like. 

Memory Verse:

Psalm 100

A psalm. For giving grateful praise.

Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
    Worship the Lord with gladness;
    come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
    It is he who made us, and we are his[a];
    we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.

Due on THURSDAY, October 24th 

We will wrap up unit 4 and begin unit 5. Unit 5 is all about addition. The kids will be solving addition problems less than 10. They will learn about the "plus" sign and "equal" sign. The kids will work with manipulatives and act out problems as well. 

Color: Black

Science/Social Studies:

In Science we will complete a unit on matter. We will discuss the different phases of matter and compare and contrast these forms. 

As we work through October, we will also be doing a mini unit on pumpkins! This will help us prepare for our field trip in October to the pumpkin patch.  

Weekly Enrichment:

1. Look around your house for 5 items that are black

2. Practice making the hand motions for each SuperKid. (The kids should know what this means.)
