What We're Learning

 Phonics

We are reading CVC words, learning the “C/K” phonics rule, reviewing the letter “P,” and reading phrases and/or sentences in our books. 

Writing

We are learning the attributes of a sentence: A sentence begins with a capital letter, has two finger spaces between words, it makes sense, and ends with a punctuation mark.

Reading  

We will listen to “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and practice rhyming skills.

Math

We are using a 100s Chart, practicing number families through 60, and beginning graphing concepts.

BibleThe students will hear the real meaning of Christmas and will learn about the angels that visit Mary and Joseph to announce the birth of Jesus. 

Social Studies

We will learn about wants versus needs, and hear the “Santa Wants and Needs” book.

Bible Verse

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."  John 3:16
