Wildflower Parents,

The children and I had another amazing week together!

We are moving through our day, learning our routines and getting to know each other even better. There are some new friendships that are beginning to blossom between old friends and new:)

This week we will be putting everything we've been working on, together, as a group. Last week, we really focussed on working independently during our learning center time as I introduced our last new centers during our morning meetings last week.

For the first time, this week we will be working from our "meeting folders" which contain a physical calendar we can reference together as well as our "Letters of the Week" that will will trace together, introducing both the capital and lowercase. We will begin with "Aa", please encourage your child to bring in an item (that will fit in his or her cubby) that beings with an "Aa". We will begin our final classroom helper position as the "word wizard"!

The Wildflowers will also make note and attempt to write the number of Wildflowers in attendance as we are given a report from our attendance reporter. As the children move their rock to the blue rectangle, it allows a mathematical teaching opportunity during our morning meeting as well as number recognition activity as we count the rocks together and write that specific number down.

And lastly, please assist your child in creating a photo collage of his or her family to share with friends. It needn't be anything fancy, just attach a few pictures of those people, pets, creatures or things that are important in your child's life:)

Finally, the lesson plans for this week:

Theme: My Family

This week we'll discuss our families, share photos and explore the many differences families can have in their structure. The Wildflowers will enhance their knowledge of their understanding in what makes a family. Asking these questions of the students, certainly returns some hilarious answers!

Monday, Sept, 10th: "Extra Fun" starts at 1pm, please see me if you have any questions.
