Dear Parents,

Welcome to a new week! Report cards will soon come home so we will finish up a few small assessments          this week, as we also move ahead with a new theme and letter.

Next Monday, January 21 we will not have school on observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. You and your child are invited to Kindergarten Preview Day next Thursday, January 24th at 6:30. Please look for more information in the Rapid Read.

A classroom supply note - if you are willing to donate some more baby wipes, we could certainly use them.  Thank you so much!

THEME: WHO’S AWAKE AT NIGHT?         
                                                                   
LETTER/LANGUAGE ARTS:  “Nn” begins words such as no, nap, night, nine, nest, and name.  The boys and girls will write N in their HWT workbooks, and start writing their names, numbers and letters between lines as they prepare for their next years in school.  The students will work on various activities regarding our science themes, and the winter season.  Fictional books we hope to read are, Are you my Mother?, and I’m Not Sleepy as we compare them to informational texts that show us the differences in places where animals sleep, as well as nocturnal activities.

SIGHT WORD:  “no”

MATH:  review

COLOR: blue

SHAPE:  rectangle

BIBLE:  This week we will finish Unit 3, God’s Plan for His Family, where we will learn about David, a shepherd boy chosen by God to lead His people, to be a king and to be a picture of Christ.

BIBLE MEMORY:   Hebrews 13:5, 6, “God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’  So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?’” 

SCIENCE:    nocturnal – what does it mean?  What animals are nocturnal?   We will also examine different nests, and the animals, birds, or bugs who live in them.                                         

SHOW-and-TELL:  THURSDAY – Please help your child draw a nest with a real or imaginary animal in it.
Have a good week,
  
Mrs. Oostman
