Religion: Chapter 5- "Quiet is Good"

   In this chapter, students will examine that God speaks to us when we listen for the quietness around our busy little lives.  Have you ever listened to the sound of a bubble popping? You must listen very quietly to hear the sound.  We will practice meditating to find inner peace and understand that God does have a place in our loud and rambunctious world. We will also begin our Marathon service project which is sending cards and artwork to the United States Air Force recruits in Georgia.  Kindergarten will also be praying for all those people who suffer from and battle cancer.  You can help us by adding this intention to your nightly prayers with your child.


   Songs: Somebody's Knocking at your Door

Language Arts: Please continue to read 20 minutes daily.  Invite your child to follow along with you as you point to the words and help sound out the words. Also, keep practicing writing names with one capital letter. 

Alf is our fourth Superkid.  He loves to go on adventures.  We will brainstorm words that begin with /a/, and practice writing both capital and lowercase Aa. Students are able to blend sounds together now using the following letters c-o-g = cog.  

Math:Concepts this week- identifying circles, reviewing shapes, greater than/less than, and numeral writing on paper calendars.


Social Studies: Every one learns how to be a part of society by following rules.  Cars stop for stop lights and people are quiet in libraries.  Rules help us be kind, respectful, and loving as well as help us stay safe.  In kindergarten, we will follow our own rules to help us manage our school days together.


Fire fighters are special individuals who risk their lives to keep us safe from danger and fire. Please help your child discuss fire safety using the following concepts:

     1. Don't be scared.

     2. Never hide, go outside.

     3. Have a plan!

4. If it's smoky, crawl on your knees.

5. Never stop, go outside quickly!

6. Sit and wait. 


Science: Continue to explore the weather and season of Fall. It is chilly so wear a coat when you come to school.
