I just finished watching the Super Bowl and even though the Chiefs didn't win it was a great game. I'm not into sports at all but I always watch the Super Bowl and the World Series.
This will be a fun and busy week as usual. In our theme "Animals Everywhere" we'll learn all about animal homes, animals we know and the differences between farm, zoo and ocean animals. The children enjoyed adopting an animal and sharing with the class how they took care of them when they took them home. I ended up putting them on the wall in the playhouse so the children didn't have to worry about misplacing them (which they did often and caused some upset.)
In Handwriting Without Tears we'll be learning about curved and straight lines with the letters Vv, Ll and Nn. In math we'll have fun sorting coins. For Social Studies we'll be talking about President Washington and President Lincoln (my favorite!) In Second Step, "Managing Waiting" is our goal and the children do a really good job of waiting as during snack time they have to wait until all of their friends have washed their hands and are seated before eating. ABC Bootcamp, which the children love will be all about the letters Mm, Nn and Oo. We'll also be working on beginning and ending sounds.
I will begin to reassess the kids so during our Zoom Parent/Teacher Conferences next month you'll be able to see the progress they've made and it's amazing!!!
Thank you for signing up for our Valentine's party on Wednesday, Feb. 10th. The Valentine bags are finished and a great way to learn managing waiting, the kids can't wait to take theirs home. They're always wanting to look inside and I tell them to wait until the 10th so they can take home their Valentines.
The Our Lady of Mercy School's greatest fundraiser of the year will be our Parent Club Auction next month. There will be a week long silent auction and a drive thru dinner. Each class will have a donation to the auction and more information will be coming in the next couple of days.
Thank you for being such an important part of our family.
