Speech & Language: This week we will practice the final blend /sh/. Our craft will be making 3-D stuffed fish. Our snack of Goldfish Crackers will be contributed by Wiley.
It is hard to believe that we are going to begin the month of February this week. We are finishing up our Benchmark unit on Animals and reviewing high frequency sight words from the unit as well as reviewing the differences between birds, mammals and reptiles.
In Room K we spend a lot of time establishing and learning social skills. We practice listening and talking clearly, and we discuss our emotions and feelings during Council and Second Step. We also write about these thoughts and feelings in our journals. Please support your child's social skills at home by reinforcing our school rules of Be Safe, Be Responsible, Be Respectful. Reinforce good manners and how to create and maintain successful friendships. As parents, you are of course, your child's first teachers. When children enter formal school, we build on and reinforce these skills that are so necessary to get along in large groups and to be a successful student.
Friday is Ground Hog Day, and it is a time when we talk about the weather, how animals hibernate and notice the small changes in the seasons.
