Our Very First Weekly News

News: 

We had a great first two days of school! I have a wonderful group of students and I am really looking forward to a fantastic school year. 

Thank you parents for ALL of your generous donations and don't forget to attend Back to School Night on Thursday at 5:30 in the Cub's Den (the church sanctuary).  

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: WE, CAN, SEE, A.

Letter Team: EE (like in SEE and BEE).

Reading: We are reading many books about beginning school and books about being friends in school. We are also beginning our first part of Daily Five: Read to Self - please see the tab on the side if you are interested in more information. 

Writing: We are writing a book together about shapes using our sight words of the week. This week we are learning that a sentence starts with an uppercase letter and ends with a period. We are working on putting finger spaces in between our words. We are also learning that our ABC Sound Chart helps us to identify sounds/letters in words. 

Math: We are learning to identify, order, write, and count numbers to 30. We are also learning the days of the week and months of the year.

Leadership: Here at ILCS, we focus on a certain leadership theme each month. This month and through September, our theme is "diligence". This is a big word for kindergartners. We are teaching that diligence is putting all of our effort, energy, and concentration into getting the job done. We will discuss ways to be diligent at home and at school.
