Growing With Geen - September 26, 2016

Last week we worked really hard learning our passwords for ST Math.  Some of the children are already working on ST Math at home because they advanced far enough to learn the additional icons for their passwords. To log on to ST Math, simply type in Within the next few weeks all of the children will be at the point of being able to log on at home. Try logging on and see what happens. =)

We started our homogeneous reading groups and are beginning to write about our reading selection.  We are learning to use our “book as a resource” to help with the writing.  Some of the children are also working on letter recognition and phonemic development.  We will be working on forming the letter “Cc.”  We are also learning the sound of “c.”  “C is for Cathy Cat.”  We are learning the sight word “to.” 

This week we will continue sorting different objects into sets, and working with the AAB pattern. 

On Mondays after lunch, we have been going to Garden with our Garden specialists Gina and Mismak.  They will be going every other week in small groups to plant and learn about how living things are all connected to the earth.

On Thursday, October 6, we will be going to the Los Angeles Zoo and Travel Town for lunch.  We love having lots of parents join us on this trip.  The children will be free, but the parents entrance is $5.00.  We will use our Cluster funds to pay for the parents, however if you have a zoo membership card or zoo passes, please let us know (see attached trip slip and tear off).

The October book orders are attached. If you are ordering books, please send in the check or cash by Friday September 30th. 

Here are some activities you can do with your child to reinforce what we are learning in class:
- What is the hard sound of “c”?  Look around you and find 5 things that begin with the hard sound of  “c” sound.  
- Talk to your child about what they did in Garden.  Did they learn about any plants? 

– Read a book to your child and talk about the story.

Here are some suggestions to help your child develop their fine motor skills:
- cut out shapes and pictures from magazine
​- draw pictures and cut them out to make a card
- see attached cutting exercise
