N was our letter for the week! We learned a new song about Nellie the Nurse and how to build the letter N. We looked for “N” things in our mystery box, matched numerals to their quantity, strung numbers on laces, built N’s with newspaper, strung noodles on a necklace, hammered nails, learned about Narwhal whales, and put together number puzzles!

We also focused on recognizing and forming the number 8 this week. Cutting 8 arms for our mystery sea creature next week was pretty tricky, but we are getting better and stronger with our scissors!

We are looking forward to visiting with you all at Parent Conferences. Thank you for sharing your sweet boys with us each day. Enjoy your weekend!

Marvin the Monkey taught us his favorite things that begin with “M” this week. We have had fun singing along and thinking of MORE things that begin with M. This week we have worked with magnets, sorted muffins, learned more about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, balanced monkeys in trees, read The Mitten, and explored our mystery box. Graphing milkshake flavors helped us to add a step in our graphing skills. It was even more fun to taste our favorite flavor on MILKSHAKE day! We found that letter M was one of the trickiest letters that we have built with our wood pieces. Please practice building your letters at home each night too!

We focused on recognizing and writing the number 7 this week. How many days are in a week? Have your son sing our “Days of the Week” song for you!

Don’t forget to practice your Magic Coat move! Most boys are doing a great job with this. Please remember to write your son’s name on every garment.

Have a magnificent weekend!

We hope your new year is off to a lovely start! It has been so nice being back with our boys!!

LEARNING was the “key” idea for this week! We sang about Larry the Lion, which helped us think of words with the sound of “L”. We made linking chain patterns, worked on our laptops, counted with number lacers, wrote and sorted letters in the post office, and learned some really cool facts about lions and lizards.

We are working on recognizing our last names. You can help your son practice by writing your last name as he watches and put it up around the house. Can he find it in the mail?

Forming letter Ll with colorful pegs on our Lite Brite was the highlight of our week! Sampling lemons and limes was bittersweet, but we sure did love trying Lucky Charms and our lollipops. “L” week was loads of fun!

Have a lovely weekend!
