September Newsletter

Dear Parents,

We hope that you had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend. The K-4 children are trying to know each other, know where to look for the things they need, and are trying their best to follow directions, classroom rules and routines.
On a daily basis children will be writing their names and practicing how to hold a writing instrument correctly. At home, show your children how to hold a writing instrument by placing your hand over theirs while writing to demonstrate the correct way to hold the writing instrument.

Theme: Body
This month, children will be identifying body parts and what each part can do. Although we are different from everyone else, our bodies are made of the same things as everyone else. The exact same parts and each of those identical parts are doing the exact same function for each of us and all those many parts combined, keep us alive.

Occasionally ask your child to imagine how things would be different if they didn’t have that particular part of their body (e.g., eyes, hands, ears, and so on).

Religion: My Name Is Special and Discovering Me
The children will learn to develop positive attitudes about themselves, their families and friends by discovering and learning more about the many gifts, talents, and abilities God has provided to them and all mankind.

Language and Literacy: Letter Ff , Hh, Nn, Mm
We will start to learn uppercase and lower case letters. First we will work on letter recognition of uppercase and lower case letters, then the sounds, and the writing of the letters. Children will also learn “Nursery Rhymes” and opposites.

Mathematics: Shape – Square, Triangle, Rectangle, Diamond
Number – 2 two, 3-three, 4-four, 5-five
Color – Primary Colors: red, yellow, blue
Same /Different and Alike

In Mathematics, children will learn more about number characters, number words, then will make sets and count using one to one correspondence. Children will learn about primary colors, two dimensional shapes, and lines that they will use for writing strokes. They will also learn more about objects that are the same/different and alike.
