January 11 – 15
We had a good first week of the New Year! We were up and running with reading groups at the end of last year, but we have hit a bit of a snag. We are testing for mid-year evaluations and report cards. You will not see reading books coming home the next week or two. Sometimes I will send an “emergent reader” that we read as a large group. These are books I would love to have your children read to you. You do not have to send them back to school.
Letters and Sound folder: We have learned all 26 letters and sounds. Now you can go through their cards each night. Put letters that they do not know in the “Letters I don’t know…yet” side of the folder. Introduce one letter that is unknown into their known pile until it is known. Then add another unknown letter. If you have questions about this, please email me.
Penguins: This week we learn about Penguins. Where they live, what they eat, and all kinds of other facts about penguins. We check in with the penguins that live at the San Diego Zoo almost every day. You can watch them live at https://zoo.sandiegozoo.org/cams/penguin-cam.
