Week of September 17th – 21st


I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful weekend.  They seem to go by so fast.  We all survived our first full week of school.  I’m sure there were some very tired children Friday night.  All will fall into place…. one day at a time.  Thank you to parents that came to meet the teacher night.  It was a warm night.  I am so glad to have met some new parents.

Here is some information for our upcoming week.

► Monday is day 2

► My theme this week will be colors and shapes.  We will be working on different activities to identify our shapes and colors.

► Our message of the week begins Monday.  We read this message everyday throughout the week together as a group.  We search for certain words, letters and colors within the  message.  It’s  a great way for them to start learning their sight words.

Message de la semaine

Bonjour les amis,

C’est un carré bleu.

C’est un cercle rouge.

C’est un triangle orange.

C’est un rectangle vert.

C’est une étoile jaune.

► We will be having our first show and share this coming Friday September 21st.  Please send only 1 small toy that fits in their school bag.  I ask parents to please not send any toys from home other then show and share day.  Merci !

► Last week, we worked on our names and the letters in our name.  We did activities such as playdough letters and magnetic letters and white boards to practice each letter in our name.  I have added some pictures of our week on my blog under photos.

► Scholastic book orders are due for September 19th.  Please send only a cheque payable to Scholastic Canada.

► Please take time to read over the information sent home at meet the teacher night as well as completing your letter to your child.

► We will be continuing our patterns module in Math.  Lots of fun working in our centers with our math manipulatives.

► We will be doing a few science experiments with colors this week as well.

► We have started our Jolly Phonics letter sounds program.  Last week we did the     letter S.  This week we will be doing the letter A.  I will soon be sending home the pocket folders with the years practice work for at home.  Again this will be yours to keep.

I think that’s it for now.  Have a great Sunday.  🙂
