Next week will be exciting! We are going to go to the firehouse on Monday morning. We will discover fire prevention techniques as well as fire safety rules. While at the fire house we will get to explore the fire trucks and fire house. In language arts we are going to learn the new word wall word “here”. We will be focusing on the letter H and writing about fire safety. We are going to be learning about word boundaries. In math we are going to continue to work on number sense by decomposing numbers one through ten. We are also continuing to practice handwriting of our numbers.
What you can do at home to prepare for next week:
  • Say a simple sentence, for example “I like going to school.” Have your child repeat the sentence and count how many words are in the sentence to practice word boundaries.
  • Discuss how you stay safe at home from fires.
