What we have been up to...

Thanks to all of the parents who came to our Parent-Teacher interviews on Thursday night. It was a pleasure meeting all of you, and I look forward to an exciting year ahead in the Hummingbird class!

We have been busy talking about Remembrance Day and the significance of this special day. Students have been busy writing postcards to soldiers and veterans. We talked about some of the things we would like to say to the soldiers, and the students wrote those messages on the postcards.

We have been singing the song, "I've Got Peace In My Fingers" together as a class - ask your child to show you the actions that go along with the song: Peace in my Fingers song

As children begin to identify specific letters of the alphabet, they can begin working on identifying letter sounds. Learning letter sounds is one of the first steps in learning to read. Here is a cute song we like to practice to help us remember the different letter sounds: Phonics Song

Everyday we practice reading and writing our popcorn words. Here are the ones we have been working on since the beginning of the year: I    can    am    see    look    at    a    the  As we learn new popcorn words, I will update the blog.

Have a great weekend!
