-Every Tuesday Homework is send home. Homework should be back to school on Thursday. Please don’t forget to send the folder back.
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 Jj. The vocabulary for this letter is: jungle, juice, jar, jellybeans, jean, jump, jellyfish, jug, jacket, jet, jaguar, joey.
A child will be assigned each week with each letter. In this case, the child 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 Camila Marmol.
***Note: On Friday, the assigned students, will have to share for 17 friends eatable things such as jellybeans, jell-o, juice, jam, letter Jj cookies,sandwich peanut butter and jelly etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit. Thank you for your support!!
