In November, we use the holiday of the month, Thanksgiving, to touch upon two important topics: giving thanks and the Pilgrims. We talk about what we are thankful for and how to use our manners. We also discuss the first Thanksgiving which included the Pilgrims and the Wampanoags.
We continue to learn more letters and sounds in Lively Letters and Fundations. In math, we continue counting, writing numbers, comparing lengths and using math manipulatives. It is very important to go over the school rules and expectations with your child several times a week. We are getting better and better with the routine, but we often need reminders of what the rules are in school. Children need to hear and see things many times before they become internalized and learned. Any assistance you can give with this is greatly appreciated.
With the colder weather upon us, please make sure that your child can put on and zip their coat. It’s a good idea to send extra socks with boots because even the best boots let in a little snow. Wet socks are very uncomfortable to wear all day. If you have any questions, please let me know.
