September News! Tentative Happenings in our Class
Week of September 11 - 15
Welcome back to School! We will spend this week getting reacquainted with each other. Also, we are excited to be meeting some new friends who will be joining our class. We will spend time going over our class schedule as well as our all-important Safety Rules. This year we will embark on a journey “Around the World”. Each month, we will visit one or more countries. We will learn about the locations of each country, and track our journey on the World map. We will have fun learning about the language, culture, food, music, and especially the animals of each country we visit. By the end of this school year, we will have visited each of the seven continents. For the month of September, we will begin our travels here in the United States. We will continue on to visit Canada. In addition, each week we will be reviewing one color and one shape. This week we will review the color Red and the shape of the circle.
Week of September 18 - 22
This week we will hear the story Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault as we begin to work our way through the alphabet. We will begin by learning to recognize and maybe even print the letter “A”. We will also talk about the short sound the letter “A” makes. In addition, we will be learning about Johnny Appleseed. We will snack on various apples and use apple peels for painting. Our color for the week is Blue and our shape is the square.
Week of September 25 - 29
This week we will begin to work on the letter “B”. We will also be discussing all the colorful changes of autumn. Watch for some of our fall artwork. Also this week we will be preparing for two very special feast days: October 1st is the Feast of Saint Therese, and October 2nd is the Feast of the Guardian Angels. Sr. Kathy will join us to share stories and songs as we learn about these special Saints. This week’s color is yellow and triangle is the shape.
Miss Beth’s Final Note:
We plan to have a great first month of school followed by an exciting year of learning and growing. Please feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns you may have.
