Dear Parents,

Wow! Such an exciting week the children just had! It was so nice to see so many of you on Sunday at the Open House.  I hope you enjoyed reading your child’s various writings and their beautiful works of art! I hope everyone enjoyed all the pictures of all the various events and activities the children participated in.  This is always a week filled with lots of fun! I am so happy each of you have chosen to send your child(ren) to our school.  I realize it can be a financial strain, but commend you on your choice to make a Catholic education a priority for your family.

I had the opportunity to go in to school to see the children on Wednesday.  I was so excited to see them! I am even more excited to be returning full-time on Friday!

Here is what the children will be doing during the week of February 6-10:

RELIGION:  The children will be learning about the many different sacred objects inside our Church.  They will be visiting our school chapel to see these items and learn about them.  They will also be learning about the different roles we all have in our Church:  priest, altar servers, Eucharistic Ministers, lectors, cantors, choir members, instrumentalists, ushers, and of course – us.

MATH:  The children are now working with numbers through 20.  They will be able to recognize the numbers, print the numbers correctly, count objects, find a given number on a number line, draw the correct number of objects, use a double ten frame, and draw tally marks for each number.  

Continue to practice quick recall of addition facts through 5, identify the position of an object as first, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth; recognize what comes next in a given pattern; identify a square, circle, triangle, rectangle, oval, diamond, cube, sphere, rectangular prism, cone, pyramid, and cylinder; and count to 100.  (Some children get confused when counting their teens.  Please listen carefully to your child when they count.)  

LANGUAGE ARTS:  The children will be working with the letters Jj & Xx.  Three new words are being added to their Word Ring: said, want, here.  It is important for your child to be able to identify the beginning, middle, and ending sounds in words.  This is an auditory skill.  You could be practicing this with your child in the car, on a walk, during bath time, etc.

We have been spending a lot of time practicing how to “blend” sounds to read words.  At this time, your child should begin to blend 3-letter words and then read them smoothly.  This is a very important skill for children to learn.   As your child is reading the books that are sent home, sometimes they may struggle with some of the words.  Please help your child to read the word and then have your child reread the entire sentence smoothly.

Your child is writing in their Kindergarten Journal each week.  I am so proud of their work!  Some children are able to write a three-four word sentence.  We are now talking about the importance of each sentence beginning with a capital letter, spacing between words, and putting an “ending” mark at the end.  (period, question mark, exclamation point)  

It takes a lot of practice and repetition for a child to be able to store their “sight words/heart words” in their brain.  We practice these words on a daily basis in our small groups and whole group.  Thank you for continuing to practice these words on a daily basis at home.

CENTERS:  1.  Writing   2.  Missing Number Valentines   3.  Monster Valentine art   4.  Listening   5.  Build and Write number words   6.  Addition Match It   7.  Love Bug art   8.  CVC Word Puzzles

SOCIAL STUDIES/SCIENCE:  Valentine’s Day books and Seasons

Special Note:

It is so important that you review and practice any papers that come home in your child’s folder on a daily basis.  Your child is continually learning new skills.  New skills are built on previous skills that have been taught.  Reviewing and practicing your child’s letter and number skills will help them to feel confident in all they do in school.

May God bless all of you and your families and keep you safe in His arms.
