We are talking about how God gave us families this week. We read a book about a little puppy and the things he loves to do with his mom. All of our families look different. One family is not better than the next. All of our parents love us and show us love. We talked about the different ways parents love us. We did a little writing activity and drew a picture of how we are loved. I saved their writing for their portfolio. Ask your child what they drew and how they feel they are loved.
Alf taught us to write the lowercase a today. We make an o, and then add a tail without lifting our pencil.
We are starting sight words this week. We are doing things a little differently this year with our sight words. The words will be coming home at the end of the week along with an easy reader. You should be reading the book at home with your child. They are allowed to sound out words they can decode. There are some heart words that they can’t decode, and they just have to memorize. We are using the letters s, m, t, a to make words this week. A, am, Sam, at, & mat. The heart words for this week are like & I.
We completed Chapter 2, lesson 7. We are using the crossing off strategy to count so we do not double count objects. I told my friends if they want to use crayons to cross off as they count, they can. They MUST write their numbers with pencil.
We are learning about fire safety this week. I am calling them up one at a time to see if they know their address, phone number and birthday. They should know the month, day, and year they were born. We talked about making a meeting place if there is a fire at your house. Please make a plan with your family if you have not already done so. We read a Let’s Find out Magazine about firefighters, watched a short video, and completed a dot to dot. We also talked about what number we dial if there is an emergency. We defined emergency as well.
