Oct 29-Nov 1

Hello Parents! 

Our letter of the week was Dd.  We talked about the sound Dd makes (like in dog, duck, door, and more!).  We practiced our hand symbol, our handwriting sheet, and read our Alphatales story, Detective Dog and the Case of the Disappearing Doughnuts.  they put dots on their Dd, and made a handprint book page: D is for Duck.  The students are doing really well with our alphabet letters.  I am so proud of their progress with the sign language symbol, the sound symbol, the letter and even our handwriting sheets are improving!  

Our theme was Pumpkins & Halloween.  We put ghosts with numbers on their tummies in the right haunted house window according to the number of dots on the window, decorated pumpkins with puffy paint, decorated cookies, made halloween safety books, watched a video on shapes and carving pumpkins, and some even did life cycle of a pumpkin yoga!  With Halloween, it made for a busy, busy week!  

I continue to encourage you to point out and question students on numbers, letters, and rhymes that happen in your daily life.  We want the students to continue to see the relevance in their learning as well as feel successful at school and learning in general.  Make this time fun and a special time for you together.  Have fun and keep learning!
