What an unbelievable week we have had in JK! We introduced the letter Uu and made our umbrella letter cards. We read “Aliens in Underpants Save the World” by Claire Freedman and did our handwriting Uu under the table!

We continued learning how to write numbers focusing on 6- 10 this week. We will send home the wording we use when writing each number. Please practice over the holiday.

Santa and Rudolph have been big topics this week as we prepare for the Christmas break. We read the book Santa’s Favorite Story by Hisako Aoki where he tells the story of the first Christmas. We are looking forward to our Christmas party next week and hope to have a special visitor stop by for a quick visit!

We kicked off this week with studying the letter, Kk! We created our key word page with a kite! Write-the-room is one of our favorite activities, and we practiced hunting down and writing every Kk word we could find in our classroom. We practiced handwriting the letter, Kk, and had fun seeing what Maggie munched and coming up with our own words that begin with Kk. It’s a tricky letter that shares the same sound with Cc.

In continuation of our study of the first Thanksgiving, we read Red Fox and His Canoe by Nathaniel Benchley and talked about methods of transportation used by Native Americans long ago. We molded our own canoes out of Model Magic clay! We also loved reading A Plump and Perky Turkey by Teresa Bateman. After reading, we worked hard on creating a special placemat just for Thanksgiving, using our hands for the feathers on a turkey! Thanksgiving is not a good time to be a turkey, and we loved sharing our creative disguises we made for our turkeys with the class! We talked about what being thankful means and for what we are thankful, reading I’m Thankful and This First Thanksgiving Day.

We can’t wait to show off our hard work at the Thanksgiving Play on Friday! Below are a few reminders. Thank you for helping make our show a success!

-Please send your son to school in a white collared shirt or turtleneck and long khaki pants.

-Please do not send your son’s backpack or water bottle to school.

-Refreshments will follow your son’s performance in the Fellowship Hall.

-It is a precious and brief performance, so please be on time to ensure you do not miss a moment!

As we look forward to celebrating this special holiday, we will review our literacy and math skills next week and conclude our unit on Thanksgiving.

Reminders and Looking Ahead:

Friday, November 22nd, 9:00AM: JK Thanksgiving Play!
