February - 2010
We are learning.....
We have now learned the letters m, p, f, c, t, s, d, l, a, o, r, b and i. The children are now being asked to produce the letter for the sounds at the beginning and ending sounds in words. You can practice this skill at home as well. Ask your child what sound ball begins with. Your child should be able to produce the sound and in most cases the name of the letter that makes that sound.
We have worked on answering questions in complete sentences this month. The children have been taught that they are to use part of the question in their answers. Please encourage this skill at home during homework as well. For example, if the question is "Where did Billy go after school?" the answer should be "Billy went home after school." This is a very important skill that the children will need to use throughout the rest of their schooling.
