Math

Students will solve problems by finding and extending number patterns as we end Topic 6. We will begin Topic 7, learning to join 2 groups and writing numbers to represent joining using what we know from stories about joining groups.

Bible

Bible story: Joshua and Jericho

Character trait: Being filled with the Holy Spirit means trusting Jesus as our Savior so the Holy Spirit lives inside of us and controls us from the inside.

Memory verse: Psalm 139:1-12a

Psalm 139:1-18 "O Lord, You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down. You are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord! You hem me in behind and before; You have laid Your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain. Where can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from Your presence? If I go up to the heavens, You are there. If I make my bed in the depths, You are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me; Your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, 'Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me," even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day for darkness is as light to You. For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful. I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God. How vast is the sum of them. Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You."


Social Studies

We will reflect on what we are thankful for in preparation for Thanksgiving.

Science

We will do SS this week

Phonics, Handwriting, and Reading

Phonics:

We use ABeka Phonics curriculum.

This week we will review all the vowel/consonant blends and use them to practice making short words. We will practice hearing the sounds in words, writing the blend first, and then adding any other sounds to make a complete word.

We have started learning our Kindergarten sight words. Sight words are words we see very frequently in our reading and writing. We practice each word with songs, spelling aloud, writing, and in center activities.

Sight word schedule:

Oct. 5-9: all, that

Oct. 12-16: into, am

Oct. 19-23: like, there

Oct. 26-30: are, must, they

Nov. 2-6: Review/Assess

Nov. 9-13: at, new, this, ate

Nov. 16-20: no, too, be, now

Nov. 23-27: Thanksgiving

Nov. 30-Dec. 4: Review/Assess

Reading:

We will practice Phonics and decoding skills one-on-one and in small groups. We will utilize our skills-based groups to meet individual needs.

We urge you to read to your child every day for at least 10 minutes. This increases their vocabulary, spelling, and conversational skills, but most importantly encourages a love of reading.

Handwriting:

We teach D'Nealian handwriting. We use handwriting sheets for the Months of the Year and number words, and soon will also practice writing in our journals. In our journals, we will practice talking through ideas and practice answering a question of the day.
