Dear Parents, 

In September, Students were learning how to: dicuss their feelings, share, get along, make friends, how to play, write their names the correct way, School Rules, Fire drill Rules, and Rug Rules, Daily routine, daily schedule, identifying letters A-F, site words I, see, is, the, can, etc., rules of how to write a simple sentence (spaces between words, etc., Identify and understand numbers 1-5. 

Our theme for the month of October will be “Learning all about Apples” (parts of an apple, different colors apples can be, where they come from, life cycle of an apple (Science) what foods we can make with apples, etc).

SOCIAL STUDIES: They will also learn about the Season of Fall (the activities we do, clothes we wear, etc). We will also discuss October holidays like Columbus Day and Halloween. 

HOMEWORK: Besides math and ELA homework that is given daily, there is also poetry 2 times a week. I am sending a different poem attached to their marble notebooks every Wednesday and Friday.  Parents are to read and discuss these poems with their child, and the child will then draw or write about that poem.

MATH: We are learning to count from 1-5, identify these numbers,  and ways to make 5. We are sending the children with 5 cubes (in a ziploc bag) daily, to help them with their homework. Please make sure they return them to school ever day, so they can use in the classroom as well.

RELIGION: We are discussing how grateful we are to have God in our lives, and express themselves through drawings and writing to show the beautiful things God made for us. 

Just a friendly reminder: Fall Walkathon will be on October 11th, which will also be a half day for the students. 

If you have any questions,  please feel free to contact me through my gmail or call the school and leave a message on my voicemail. Thank you for all your support, and have a wonderful day!

Mrs Davis.
