Thank you for sharing your time with us during theParent/Teacher Conferences last Friday. Thefirst quarter went by so quickly. Attending to children’s needs requires that we,as teachers, explore all areas of your child’s development. As we work toidentify and improve these areas, we help to lay the foundation for theirfuture success. That is why it is so important that parents and teachers workhand in hand to guide and nurture our students/children.
As we begin the second quarter, we will be spendinga significant amount of time and effort working on “FINE MOTOR SKILLS”. Wewill incorporate activities and projects that focus on the use of fine motorskills to strengthen the muscles in the children’s hands and fingers and todevelop their coordination and general dexterity.
In Religion, we will be discussing the topic of Thanksgiving; itsmeaning and its significance in our life and as a special celebration withfamily and friends.
In Language Literacy, children will continue learning NurseryRhymes. We will challenge them toidentify words that Rhyme - Words that have the same ending sound. We will do this by using songs, nurseryrhymes and poems to help children to recognize rhyming words.
In Mathematics, children will continue learning about their numbers,colors, shapes and measurements by classifying objects or pictures according tosizes (small, medium, large or big), tall, long, short, narrow, wide, full,empty, more and less. Play with your child by comparing groups of objects of nomore than 5 to 10 objects/group and use quantitative words to describethem. For example: Which has more orless?
