JK Newsletter October 6, 2022

We are now 6 Weeks into school and seeing lots of friendships being made, and social emotional growth in all of your children! The children are finding their own voices and learning how to respectfully ask using their manners and treating their friends with kindness.  Pouting. crying, and tattling are all common at this age.  We are guiding the children to problem solve by using their voice, and to work it out with their friend.  And most importantly, to think how the other person may be feeling/ these are life skills that will go a LONG way!

Somethings to ask your child about from this week:

  • Who was the line leader? line caboose? prayer leader? flag holder? It changes weekly!
  • Ask your child how we make apple pies at centers? 
  • Ask them to name an animal they saw in the mosaic of St. Francis in the back of church ?

Religion: God asks one thing from us and that is to LOVE ONE ANOTHER. We look at ways God shows his love for us each day. We will talk about this Golden Rule and continue to find ways God shows us his love.

Literacy: This week we will do the Jolly phonics review.

Math: We are doing graphs patterns and number formations each day. We also have dice and number match games we play.

Science: Everything fall!!

I hope you are able to take some time this weekend to enjoy the change of seasons.  We have lots of amazing trails in our local forest preserves.  Graue Mill and Little Red School House are close by.  They have beautiful trails for the family to get out and enjoy the fall!

Enjoy your long weekend!
