A Peek at Week 18
Reminder: We have been SNOW-FREE this week but please remember to send boots to school with your child all winter. Our playground gets quite muddy! Also, watch the weather and make sure your child has appropriate clothing to play outside!
Reminder 2: Your child should bring a gently used book wrapped in paper to exchange for a class game on Friday.
Devotions and Prayer – This month we will focus on advent, waiting and getting our hearts ready for the real meaning and celebration of Christmas.
Bible – This week we will read the stories of Jesus’ birth as we prepare to celebrate Christmas with you next week.
Math – This week we’re doing more practice with addition and subtraction story problems – reading them CAREFULLY and not just guessing if they are addition or subtraction.
Phonics – This week we’ll continue working on review of skill 1 and 2 which indicate when a word will have a short vowel. We’ll also be learning how to tell when a word ends with c, k, or ck.
Reading Workshop- We’ll be using our reading time this week for Christmas stories and activities that continue to help us focus on the real meaning of Christmas.
Writing – We continue our work of writing non-fiction books that teach facts about a topic that we are experts on. We’ll also be writing some Christmas cards during writing time.
Social Studies/Science – This week we’ll wrap up our Social Studies unit on Wants and Needs. We’ll work on producers-consumers, scarcity – choice and on trade and money.
