Snapshot of the week:
We've been hard at work practicing our classroom and school rules, following the 4Bees and earning Caught Ya Cards. We are working hard and keep focusing on safe bodies, respectful behavior and using our words to share our feelings. We're also practicing "non-verbal signals". You can ask your child to show you these: bathroom, please stop, quiet, sit, quiet coyote, connection, and too loud.
We are working on learning our letters and proper formation, remembering to use "bite-rest" when gripping the pencil. Next week we will be working on Dd-dog-/d/ and Ss-snake-/s/. This week, we learned and reviewed Tt, Bb, Ff, Nn, Mm, Ii, Uu, Cc, Oo, Aa and Gg. You can help your child practice these at home using the learning packets that are sent home on the first day of each week. Help your child practice Tt-top-/t/, Bb-bat-/b/, Ff-fun-/f/, Nn-nut-/n/, Mm-man-/m/, Ii-itch-/i/, Uu-up-/u/, Cc-cat-/c/, Oo-octopus-/o/, Aa-apple-/a/ and Gg-game-/g/.
