JK Newsletter October 8, 2021

We are now 6 weeks into school and seeing lots of friendships being made, and social emotional growth in all 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 our with their friend. And most importantly,  to think how the other person may be feeling.  These are life skills that will go along way!

Somethings to ask your child about from this week:

  • Bubbles… our new class fish:)
  • The Mosaic with St. Francis they saw in the back of church on our weekly visit?
  • Who was the line leader, line caboose, Flag holder, fish feeder for this week?

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

Literacy: This week in Jolly Phonics we will be learning letters /r/ and /m/.  Please continue to do word play games. Beginning sounds and ending sounds we work on every day.  This is an important early reading indicator.

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

Science: Pumpkins and everything fall!

I hope you’re all able to take some time over this weekend and 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 whole family to get out and enjoy the fall!

Please let us know if you have any questions:)

Enjoy the long Weekend,

The JK Team
