Classroom Information

  • FRIDAYS are library days, so please make sure your child brings back his/her book by the end of each week.
  • Please regularly check and immediately replace your child's extra clothes in his/her blanket box and make sure they are seasonally appropriate.
  • I'm running chapels this month, so we will be leaving for chapel right at 8:45. If you are running late, please bring your child down to the auditorium.
  • If you have any fall decorations, gourds, leaves, pumpkins (large or small), etc. that you would like to donate for inquiry/exploration purposes (our Discovery Centre), that would be awesome!

Language

We will continue with our Language Centres this month and focus on sight words and letter matching, names and sounds.

Sight Words: she, he, is, and, days of the week (plus review of: I, am, a, girl, boy)

Letters: Tt, Ii, Ff, Hh, Uu (writing and sounds)

Math

We will focus on numbers 1-10 (counting, writing, and recognition). Our Math Centres will have many activities that will help us to explore numbers and counting. During carpet times, we will also work on learning and using ordinals to the 5th place.

Bible

We will spend a week talking about Thanksgiving and exploring the things we are thankful for. We will be doing a special PBL project where we write thank-you letters as a class to various adults around LCA and then deliver them.

After Thanksgiving, we will begin our unit on the Fruits of the Spirit, focusing on each fruit - what it means and how we can display it in our lives.

Theme

We will explore all things related to thankgsiving and fall - turkeys, apples, pumpkins and leaves and do many crafts and activities to learn more about the natural cycles God has put in place in our world.

We will also continue our Project-Based Learning project about Trees this month by visiting our tree and observing the fall changes.
