Weekly Highlights

This week we learned that Jesus was baptized.  We know that baptism is one way we show we love God and that this made God very happy!  We know we can show God we love Him and want to follow Him by being baptized too.  

Our phonics lessons focused on the letter sounds X and Y.  The students are doing a wonderful job recognizing letter sounds and writing lower case letters!  We also learned new sight words that, he, for, (and) are.  The children are pointing out their sight words in books they read more and more.  Be sure to look for them when you read together at home!

In math, we started a unit on 2D shapes.  We learned that circles have 0 corners and 0 sides, triangles have 3 corners and sides and squares have 4 corners and sides.  We found lots of 2D shapes in our classroom.  Encourage your child to point out shapes at home, expecially triangles, rectangles and rhombuses (diamonds). 

Our socal studies lessons this week were about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr, and our state of Georgia.  We know Dr. King wanted equality for all children and that he worked very hard to help everyone be treated fairly.  We also learned some of the state symbols for Georgia.  Look for our book about our state in your child's Friday folday!

Finally, we have many students in the birthday club!  It's not too late to join by having your child tell me their birthday before school.  Next up is the phone number club!  Help your child learn your home phone number or cell phone number and they can tell me before school.  They get so excited about joining a new club!
