The children came up with 64 "A" words. Awesome!! The story this week was "Apple Auntie". The class made paper airplanes and played alphabet bingo! In the computer lab on Tuesday the children played a game where they had to put the letters in alphabetical order. What a challenge!! They also put together 3 piece alphabet puzzles on the computer. Once again they did a wonderful job at mass on Wednesday. We talked about why Father put ashes on our foreheads and how we can be better friends. Hope that talk works! The children picked an egg after Mass, the eggs each had a St. Thomas student name in them that they are supposed to say an extra prayer for. Does your child remember who they picked and are they saying a prayer for that child at bedtime? All of the children are doing really well at graphing most of them have been getting it correct, this week we graphed 12 oranges. The children learned how to spell twelve and write the number 12. Homework this week was to write the letters in the alphabet. They did a great job even though we have not finished all the letters in class. This group of 4-K's are really smart!!
Next week is the letter K and the number 4. We are also going to be taking down all of the snowmen, snowflakes, and mittens that are in the classroom. We say no more snow!!!! We will replace them with shamrocks and rain drops!
The class came up with 115 "P" words!! Perfect!! The children earned a free show and tell on Thursday!! Great job friends! The story this week was "Polka Pig". The children made a prayer book this week, have they been using them at home? We talked about how we pray to God and why we pray. They also made penguin families, they made one penguin for each family member. The class finished their number color sheets, I made it into a number book and sent them home. Now we will begin graphing the numbers. We started this week by graphing the pictures of pets the children brought in for homework. There was one graph for the dogs, one for the cats, and one for the other pets. The other pets had the most with the dogs a close second! The children also learned how to spell eleven and write the number 11.
It was nice to see some of you at McDonalds on Wednesday! Were the french fries I made the best ever? Thank you for joining us teachers and supporting the school! Thursday we had a pajama party with their pillow pets and watched a penguin movie and ate popcorn! The school had a surprise snack on Thursday, donuts!! Mrs. T was so proud of how the children did at the VIP Mass she had donuts after mass for everyone!! Thank you Mrs. T, Mrs. Boho and Mrs. Fehler!
Next week will be the letter "A" and number 12. The 4-K class will be attending Ash Wednesday mass on Wednesday. Please have your child in the classroom by 7:45 on Wednesday so we can meet our 7th grade buddies.
The children came up with 86 "F" words. Fantastic!! The story was "Freckled Frog". The class talked about the four food groups, what foods where in each group, and then made a book. Wednesday the class had a play date in the Kindergarten classroom and played Bingo with Mrs. Applebee. I was very proud of how the children behaved in Mass on Thursday. Great job!! The children learned how to write 10 and spell the number ten.
Next week we will learn about the letter "P" and the number 11. Thursday we will have a pajama day to go along with our pillow pets!! Does anyone have the movie Happy Feet? The children are going to begin graphing items for the number of the week! Have a great weekend!!

This week the class came up with 32 "V" words. Very good!! The story was "Vam Vampire". The children made Valentines cards for Mom and Dad (I did forget to send them home, SORRY!!!). The children learned how to write the number 9 and spell the number nine. The 4-K class took a field trip to Betty Brinn on Wednesday, They learned about recycling and played in all of the areas in the museum. What a fun place! The Valentines Party on Thursday was so much fun!! We played heart, heart, cupid (like duck, duck, goose), passed a heart using clothes pins, musical chairs, and a Valentines bingo game!!

Next week Wednesday we have a play date in Kindergarten and Thursday we will be attending Mass. Remember to have your child in the classroom by 7:45. The children will learn about the letter "F" and number 10.
MORNING DROP OFF: Unless your child is arriving late, after 7:30 AM, they should be dropped off in front of the church not the school. Busses need to get in to drop students off and it is a safety issue. Thank you for your cooperation!
