Week 2 Recap

We had a great second week of school.  The class worked on our shapes this week and I was pleased that they all already knew the basic shapes of circle, square, rectangle, triangle and star.  It was a great week as we began learning to write our letters by tracing the letters I, i, U, u, E, and e.  We have started getting mail from Amber Lamb when we learn a new letter and Button Bear for our new numbers.  This week our new letter was E and our new number was 4. Our Bible story this week was about Adam and his special job of naming the animals.  We talked about the special job each of the children has which is to obey our mommies, daddies and teachers.  Our Bible verse for the week was "Be ye kind one to another" Ephesians 4:32.

Week 1 Review

We have been in school for a full week now.  It has been a good week getting to know each other.  We have worked on some of our classroom habits like how to sit in our chairs and walking in line.  It was fun this week to get to play with some homemade playdough.  I have been very pleased so far with how much the children already know.  So far we have worked on learing the letters I, i and U, u.  We are learning to call them capital and small letters.  They also were already able to recognize the numbers 1, 2, 3 by sight and able to count out objects.  We reviewed the colors red, yellow, blue, orange, black, purple and brown and have begun working on our shapes starting with square, circle and rectangle.  This next week will be exciting as we begin writing!!!!
