Good Evening Families,

In spite of our short week, we were able to accomplish our goals.

The alphabet will be introduced through the Investigator Club with Dilly Gator putting on an alphabet show. All her friends will take part with costumes and props. The children, in small group, will recognize the letters, learn the sounds and write the letters.

We started with the letter A and heard the story and song, “The Ants Go Marching”. We stamped ants on a anthill. The children shared their favorite stuffed animal with the class. Since the boys and girls love Show ‘N Tell, we will continue to share items beginning with the letters we are focusing on with the Alphabet Jar.

The letter B prompted us to bake bread in a bread machine. Oh my goodness! There is quite nothing like the aroma of fresh baking bread! The class couldn’t get enough of the deliciousness with butter! Don’t miss the B words….bake, bread and butter.

Next week, it’s on to letters C and D with exciting activities.

I hope you were as impressed as I was with the “Mi Familia” books the Chicos y chicas made in Spanish class. This will be a keeper for sure.

On Friday, we learned a little about Dr. King’s dream of equality. We discussed how we should treat others like we would like to be treated. Our hearts hurt when someone offends us. We made an awesome art project in correlation with this ideal. It is drying over the weekend so you’ll have to wait until Tuesday to see it. Don’t forget there is no school Monday!

Kudos to those children who brought home a certificate for recognizing numbers from1-10! Don’t despair if your child didn’t bring one home….we’ll keep working.

Have a Nice Long Weekend,
Wanda and Leslie
