December 17th-21st Class News

This is our last week of school in 2018! =)

 

Phonics: We are now beginning long vowel sounds and our special sound charts. The kids must learn their vowel rules and know how to do them. The rules are on the first page of homework packet and I will put them on here.

Short vowel rule: When there is one vowel in a word, it makes the short vowel sound and I put a smiley face on top.

Long vowel rule: When there are two vowels in a word, the first vowel says its name and the second vowel is silent. I put a stick on top the first and cross out the second.

 

Numbers: We are now writing numbers 1-10. We are reviewing all our families. They should know and recognize numbers 1-100. The first digit is the father of the family which gives the family its name. We have started to learn how to count by 10s and introduced the dime.

 

Memory Verse: O- “O give thanks unto the Lord; for He is good.” Psalm 118:1

 

Events:

December 20th– Christmas Parties at 2pm

December 21st– Christmas program noon dismissal

December 24th– January 4th– CHRISTMAS BREAK NO SCHOOL

 

Don’t Forget: Last week I sent home our class snack schedule. Please do not forget to check the schedule every day. I will start sending home a big pink bag in your child’s school bag when it is their snack day. You can send the snack back in the big pink bag. It will also work as a reminder. I also ask you to check your child’s folder every day. This is how we communicate. I ask that you sign the boxes where it says parent’s signature, so I know you are checking their folders. Also sign the boxes next to the homework assignments on the behavior charts when the homework is completed. Make sure to subscribe to receive our class email on our school website. That way you are receiving the email and you will get a hard copy in your child’s folder. Christmas is right around the corner!! =) Next up is our Christmas party and our Christmas program. Our Christmas party is this Thursday at 2pm. If you signed up to bring something, you can send it in throughout the week if you would like. Then Friday is our Christmas program which begins at 9am. The kids are dismissed once the program is over.
