PreK-4 Weekly Newsletter
Week of January 19th

Letters: Oo  Motion: Moving arms like an octopus 



Shape: Triangle

Religion: Baptism and Forgiveness 

Activities: Make octopus paper plate puppet, starfish craft, and play with ocean animals in sensory table 

School notes:
We started our ocean last week.  The children will be learning about many ocean animals in the upcoming weeks.  

 Also, we have started the Zipper Club.  If a  child can zip his or her jacket, I have them write their name on the Zipper Club poster.  This gives the children some incentive to want to learn.  We already have a few names on the poster!!! 

Remember, we have gym every Wednesday.  Please have your child wear gym shoes on this day. Also, the four year olds that come to school have gym on Thursdays.

I am looking for a parent to help out with computers on Monday, January 26th from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.  If interested, please let me know.

If your child has not brought in his or her baptismal picture, please have them do so by the end of the week.

Please continue to work on letters and sounds with your child. I am starting to put children in small groups and work with them during gym time.  Those children that know all letters and sounds will be introduced to sight words.

*I am need of 21 green cups for a project.
