This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. This week we will be studying about the letter Oo. The vocabulary for this letter is: ox, oatmeal, octagon, octopus, overalls, olives, ostrich, old, orange, otter, oven, omelette
Children assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Emma (Prek”A”) and Ivanna(Prek”B”).
***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share eatable things for 22 friends such as oatmeal cookies, onion rings, orange juice, orange, omelette, oreo cookies. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit. Thank you for your support!!

We would like your support on occasionally review the ABC’s letter names and sound. Here are some songs we use in class every day.
Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Owl Babies, by Martin Waddell This is the story of three baby owls who wake up one night in their hole in the tree to find that their mother has gone, so they sit on the branch and wait, wondering when she will return. At last she does, and they all bounce up and down with joy, welcoming her home
In math, will be working with numbers. We will begin with number 11 on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “Old McDonald”
We are attaching you the link of the videos of this song we will be learning throughout the week. We will learn two versions of this nursery rhyme. Just a little tip to have fun at home listening and acting out our song.
In Social Studies we will begin our amazing the unit about Community Helpers. We are going to be discussing the different types of professions. Children will get the chance to name the tools, transportations and what does each of the professions do. Some of the vocabulary words we will be focusing are: hair stylist, firefighter, policeman, doctor, vet, nurse, builder, chef, farmer, teacher, mailman, dentist. If you have any books or posters, or any other material that you would like to share with us it would be greatly appreciated. Children can bring any of these transportation and community helper’s objects they have at home to share and play we will send them two weeks.
Note: We will keep working with the transportation toys that you send last week. We will give them back when we finish your Community Helpers Unit.
To close our Community Helpers unit we are planning on a Show and Tell Presentation that will be on Friday, February 2nd. Each child will be assigned with an occupation, they will have to answer the following questions. "What do I do?" "How do I transport?" "What tools do I use?" "Where do I work?" Children should come dressed as the community helper that they will be assigned. We are NOT demanding an expensive or fancy suit, it is up to you how and what you are going to use. Children should also bring a poster illustrating the questions, this will be a help while they present.
The assigned occupations for each child will be send by the WA group on Monday.
Enjoy doing this project with your child. Involve them in everything you plan. Any doubts or questions please contact us as soon as possible.
