Miss Elizabeth Reyes (K-1)


This Week We Are Learning (10/16):

We will be focusing on the following skills this week: identifying beginning sounds, recognizing words in oral sentences, pausing for punctuation, action verbs, and learning to use the text and pictures together to develop meaning. The High-Frequency Word is: “and” (In addition to reviewing the letters/sounds of the alphabet, please continue to practice reading and identifying I, like, and the at home.) 

In this chapter the children will learn that God made all people good. We’ll also learn that people are different, but God wants us to appreciate our differences.
October is the Month of the Rosary. Please take some time to talk to your child about the rosary, perhaps show them any rosaries you might have at home and maybe pray a decade or more together.

We will start Topic 3: Numbers 6-10. This unit will focus on reading, writing, and counting numbers 6-10.  We also will work with the concept of more, fewer (less), and number patterns. 

Social Studies: 
Our unit this week is about “Community Helpers”.  We will discuss and learn about helpers in our community and their impact on our lives.

We will finish exploring the importance of fire safety rules. We will also learn about pumpkins.

  • When printing letters and numbers, encourage your child to start at the top and work down. Many children will begin their numbers and letters at the bottom, which is the incorrect way of producing them. Please watch your child and correct them if need be.
  • Have your child practice writing their name with only 1 capital letter and all the rest of the letters lowercase.
  • Spend a few minutes each day reviewing alphabet letters and word wall words so your child begins to readily recognize all letters and word wall words. Search for letters/words in books and magazines and use them to write sentences.
  • Have your child practice tying their own shoes and zipping their own jacket.
  • Have your child practice cutting with their thumb up and using their opposite hand to rotate the paper.
