Dear Parents,
A very special “Thank You” to all of the Grandparents who visited our K-4 class last Friday! Your presence gave the children another good reason to know that they have very special people in their lives.
Beginning on October 11, the K4’s are joining the Wednesday Mass. A jumper for girls and a tie for boys is required attire for Wednesday Mass.
This week, children will be gaining a greater awareness and appreciation for their sense of sight. The children will be able to express thankfulness to God for their sense of sight through scripture, music, and prayer.
In Language Literacy, children will now be learning about Rhyming Words. We will challenge them to identify words that have the same ending sound from the songs and poems and be able to repeat rhyming words.
In Mathematics, children will continue learning about their numbers, colors, shapes, sizes, more or less, and things that go together. Play with your child by comparing groups of objects of no more than 6 objects/group and use quantitative vocabulary to describe them, such as, (Which has more or less?).

The theme this week will allow children to share what they know about the Fall Season, Such as: What is the weather like? Activities and sports we enjoy. Holidays we celebrate and the various types of clothing we wear during the Fall Season? What happen to trees and plants around us when the Fall Season progresses?
How leaves change color? What do insects do during the Fall Season?
