What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: 
OUR, WHO, THINK, THING, THAT.

Letter Team: 
 
INK (like in PINK, SINK) and ED (We are learning that tricky Mr. ED goes at the end of the word to tell us that something has already happened - making the word past tense. Mr. ED is tricky because sometimes he makes the "T" sound - like in LOOKED, sometimes he makes the "D" sound - like in PLAYED, and sometimes he says "ED" like in WANTED).

Reading:
 We are reading many books about the holidays. 


Writing:  This week we will continue our "Writer's Checklist" - a list of things that all good writers do, such as proper punctuation, uppercases at the beginning of a sentence and name, finger spaces between each word, spelling word wall words correctly, adding details, making sure our writing makes sense, and trying our best! We will read this checklist everyday to make sure we are applying each of those skills in our writing.

Math: 
This week we will continue to learn addition "DOUBLES" in our fun DOUBLES SONG. You can help at home by asking your child doubles addition questions (2+2, 7+7, 10+10, etc.) We will continue to focus on decomposing this week as we discuss different ways to break apart numbers using addition and subtraction. For example, the number 3 can be decomposed into 2+1, 1+2, 3+0, 0+3, 5-2, 4-1, etc.

Leadership: We will continue discussing benevolence and talking about ways that we can show kindness and generosity during the holiday season.

The staff is very warm and caring. They also take care of lunch and snacks for the kids. My son absolutely loves this place, and because of that I too love this place!
