Dear Parents,

Just a note for next week – We only have school Monday and Tuesday. The rest of the week is fall break. Enjoy!

Here is what we hope to accomplish this week:

THEME: E is for elephants and eggs           

LETTER/LANGUAGE ARTS:  Ee is the first letter in words like egg, excited, extra, and elephant. Some classic books we will read this week include Elmer, and Green Eggs and Ham. We will talk about some animals that do, and do not hatch from eggs. Rhyming words will be introduced and a fun game will come home to play together. We will work on writing the letter E in our Handwriting Without Tears (HWT) workbook. We are working hard on our letters. Our goal is to recognize A-E and know their sounds by our first report card! Any extra help at home is always appreciated.

SIGHT WORD:  “egg”

MATH:  We will write number 3 in our handwriting book, and work on recognizing numbers 1-3 in print. Another report card goal!

COLOR: yellow

SHAPE:  square

BIBLE: Last week, we learned About Abraham and Sara’s son Isaac. This week we will talk about Isaac’s two sons, Jacob and Esau.  We will see that God’s plan and covenant promises continue despite His people’s sin and trickery, so that Christ will come.  We will see how God again showed His faithful love and care to Jacob who was suffering the consequences of his sins.  You are encouraged to find these stories in your Bible at home, and review them with your child.

BIBLE MEMORY: Our memory verse is due this Wednesday: “I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.” Genesis 9:13.

SCIENCE: What hatches from eggs?

SHOW-and-TELL: THURSDAY – A small plastic egg will come home this week. Please have your child find something that can fit inside, and bring it back on Thursday when we will shake the egg and try to guess what’s inside!

Have a great week!
