September 21

We had a great day today!  We had an apple themed day!  We read Amelia Bedelia Makes an Apple Pie, the kids created their own apple books and we sponge painted apples which are hanging in the hallway!  The kids are able to read their apple books and they brought them home to read to you.  Please encourage your child to point to the words as they say them.  Don't forget to color in an apple on your September reading sheet if they read this book to you, it counts!  The kids also went to gym today.  The apple poem we are doing in class goes like this:

Way up in the apple tree,

Two little apples smiled at me.

I shook that tree as hard as I could,

Down fell the apples,

Mmmm they were good!

We will do many songs and poems throughout the year that are fun ways to learn rhyming, phonilogical awareness and many other skills!  Remember to have your child practice their name using lowercase letters.  Have a great weekend!
