K - 1

Week of: October 15, 2018

Well, our fifth week of Kindergarten together was another fantastic one! The children had a great week playing together, working hard in math and reading, and pledging to BE good friends to each other!

I hope you had a nice Columbus day off from school on Monday! The children spent the short week learning a new sight word thereviewed the foundations letter n, counted numbers with manipulatives, worked on an autumn project, and thanked God for making our world.

On Friday, we went on our first field trip to Green Meadows Farm. It was a lot of fun! The children rode ponies, milked a cow, went on a hayride, feed and pet the animals, played on the playground, and took home a pumpkin. Thank you to our amazing chaperones for all your help!
It was an awesome day, and a great week!

Extra reminders...
Please check your child's homework for accuracy.
Please read all the directions for all the questions.
Please enforce proper pencil grip and correct letter formation.
Have your child write only the first letter of his/her name in an uppercase letter, the rest of the letters are in lowercase letters. It is okay to have him/her erase and rewrite properly. This type of repetition helps your child to remember the accuracy and importance of writing his/her name correctly.
Thank you for all your help and support!
