We were all so happy to see the children’s smiling faces this week. They were eager to share about wonderful Christmas adventures and special gifts!
We enjoyed talking about winter, about building a snowman, and about lots of other fun things that we can do when it snows. We also learned that God made each snowflake different…just like us. We are all made in God’s image, yet each of us is special and unique because there is only one of us!
Throughout the rest of the year we will continue to identify beginning and ending sounds in words as well as those tricky short middle vowels (so far only o, a, and i) in simple words. Playing listening games at home or in the car is a great way to reinforce hearing parts of sounds in words…which is such an important pre-reading skill! If you need help with some games to play, ask your child’s teacher for some ideas.
The children are so excited about next week! We will focus on the letter “P”; we will have pancakes, read about polar bears, and celebrate the letter “Pp” with “Pajama Day”. Children should wear their pajamas on Wednesday. Children should also wear tennis shoes, no slippers please!
