What a transformation our world has gone through this week! I hope you enjoyed some of your time in the snow. As parents it can be such a pain to think about suiting up for the snow, brushing off cars, shoveling, driving, etc. but it is so much fun to watch the wonder on children’s faces as they experience snow. One of our snow days was my daughter’s birthday and it was wonderful to have the time to celebrate with her and also amazing to watch her excitement about the new landscape. She is now happily asking for “Outside, mama?” all day long and pays no attention to my groans about getting on winter gear.
On that note, thank you for sending in winter clothing each day. I have a small stash of extras but it depletes quickly! Be sure to label everything with your child’s name and I will do my best to help look for things when they are lost.
Don’t forget that Monday is Dress Like a Superhero Day! We are so excited that we met and surpassed our Foot Frolic Frenzy Goals and we will celebrate on Monday. I look forward to seeing all the Super-kindergarteners next week!

This week we reviewed all our sight words to this point. If you would like to practice them at home you can print out these flashcards: Lesson 1-10. We also worked on syllables: “ba, be, bi, bo, bu.”
In writing, we continued using lots of tools to help make our writing better. We also talked about practicing our stories first by telling them to others in a “storyteller voice.” You can practice this at home by encouraging your child to tell you a story using the same kinds of words you might find in a story book.
In Math we are working on spotting groups of 10 in the numbers we see. We are also working on representing sumas and restas (addition and subtraction problems) with simple drawings. We cross out to show subtraction and draw separate groups to show addition problems.
During Bible we read about Joshua and the Israelites as they finally reached the Promised Land and entered Jericho. We are also working on Verses 1 – 5 from Psalm 100.
