JK Newsletter November 12, 2021

Another great week in JK! It has been such a pleasure getting to know your children. I hope they are enjoying their time with us, as we are with them!

Play is such an important part of development at the JK age! We incorporate play into our day, through recess and free choice time!  The life skills of negotiating games and playing well with others are things we all want our children to understand.

Some things you can ask your children about this week are:

  • What favorite thanksgiving food did you draw in your classroom Thanksgiving book?
  • Did you see your buddies this week? What did you do?
  • Who was the flag holder, line leader, prayer leader and caboose?

Religion: We will continue to talk about all of God’s blessing this month and things we are grateful for!  Also, church on Sunday.  Please be sure to say “Hi “or wave if you see Mrs. Jacobs or Mrs. Hogan in church. I like to go to attend either 5 pm on Saturday or 10;30 am on Sunday.  Mrs. Jacobs likes to attend the 8:45 am on Sundays.  It warms our hearts to see you there!

Literacy: Reading is one of the best indicators of future reading success.  We read books everyday in our classroom and hope your are at home as well!  We will be learning the letters /z/ and /w/ in Jolly phonics!  Please ask your kids to show you the hand motions for  a few of the following letters:  s,a,t,i,p,n,ck,e,h,r,n,d,n,g,o,u,f,j,l. They are so GOOD at it!

Math: We will continue to do graphing and patterns in Calendar and Centers.

Social Studies/Science: We will continue to discuss the Pilgrims and the Native Americans, and how Thanksgiving came about.

Have a great weekend
