123’s Numbers it will be!

Dear Wonderful Wood Acres families,
This week our theme of “farm animals” was purrr-fect! The children had a fantastic time learning about all of the different animals that live on a farm. Through songs, books, interactive games, and activities the children had a grand ole time down on the farm!

Our study of numbers is on the way. This week, we will introduce numbers one and two. The children will begin to create the first two pages for their number book (1 sun, 2 shoes.) We will introduce the white board as a way to help improve pencil grip as they begin writing the number one and two. Your support at home is crucial to our success in the classroom. Please be sure to take a few minutes at home each night to review the numbers we have already learned. You could do this by counting objects in the grocery store, while driving down the road, and even turn it into an “I Spy” game. Number recognition is extremely important at this stage in their development and as a foundation for their transition into the four year old classroom next year.

This week in Investigator Club, we are still getting to know all about JT gator, who is the little brother to Dilly. The children are excited to explore JT and his friends. This week, we will focus not the following subjects:

Social and Emotional: Tell how you feel.
The objective is to understand that communication is a way of expressing our emotions.

Oral Language: Did you ever see a gator?
The objective is to listen and understand conversations, stories, songs, finger plays, and poems.

Phonological Awareness: Environmental sounds.
The objective is to recognize and identify environmental sounds.

We would like to send out a special thank you to Mr. Lindenberg Andres’s father for being our Mystery Reader last week! The children loved listening to some of Andres’s favorite books. “. We are excited to welcome Mr. Gelling Grants father as our reader this week. We can’t wait to have him as part of our fun Friday.

Friendly Reminders;
Fun Friday Cooking Day
Halloween party is October 31st at 10:30. We are asking our parents who have signed up to come and enjoy this spooky day with us.
More details to come. Please check your child’s folder details. Thank you.

Have a good week and let Go Yankees!
Ms.Orsano & Ms. Wright
