Hello families!

              

Next week we will be practicing our fine motor skill of cutting to make a snowman, practicing literacy skills with a gingerbread easy reader, making apple pie in a cup, tasting different apple products, and using a graph to describe and analyze results. We will continue to explore the focus question “What can we do with parts of trees?” and our letter of the week is K, k.

Our safety lesson for next week continues on touching safety. Students will learn and practice what to do if someone breaks the touching rule. The touching rule is: “No bigger person should ever touch your private body parts except to keep you clean or healthy.”

The safety steps to follow when someone breaks the touching rule are:

  1. Say words that mean no or stop.
  2. Get away
  3. Tell a trusted adult. If you don’t get the help you need, keep telling adults.

I understand that talking about touching safety can be a sensitive topic. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Hello families!

Next week we will be practicing 1-1 correspondence by pretending to set a table and serve a meal, re-telling familiar stories from beginning to end with props, sorting and classifying wood materials, using microscopes to investigate parts of a tree, and using our creativity to draw our dream home.

    

Our focus question of the week is “What can we do with parts of trees?”, our letter of the week is X, x and our repeated read aloud is “A Grand Old Tree.”

       

Our safety lesson for next week is on touching safety. Students will learn the touching rule, and what to do if someone breaks the touching rule. The touching rule is: “No bigger person should ever touch your private body parts except to keep you clean or healthy.” An example of “clean or healthy” might be a parent giving their child a bath, a safe adult helping a child to clean themselves after using the restroom, or a doctor checking parts that are covered by a swimsuit. Students will also learn anatomically correct names for body parts, so that if necessary, they can clearly communicate their questions or concerns about the touching rule with a trusted adult. I understand that talking about touching safety can be a sensitive topic. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.

          

Have a great weekend!
