Virtue Of The Month – Friendliness

2’s

The  2’s team is looking forward to a wonderful school year and welcoming our new friends to school. We will spend the month exploring our classroom and getting acquainted with new friends. We will also learn a bit about ourselves, as we talk about how our body moves with play and about our feelings. Our shape of the month is the circle and our featured color is yellow!  We are off to a busy start!

3’s

Welcome to the “Terrific 3’s!”   We are thrilled to begin this new school year!  The children will have so much fun as they explore their classrooms, meet their teachers and make lots of new friends.   Our busy classrooms will be full of fun and discovery as we learn about the letters A, B, C and D, as well as the numerals 1 and 2.  We will also be reading and reciting some wonderful and traditional nursery rhymes.  The children will be able to experience these rhymes through various art, music and sensory activities! What a great start to a new year!!

4’s

The 4’s classes are so excited to welcome new friends to their classes. This month we will be settling in to our routines and getting to know one another better. We will introduce our Handwriting Without Tears program and begin learning about the letters L, F, E, H and T.  “Magnificent Me & My Friends” is our initial unit and every child will have an opportunity to bring home the “Me Box.”  This is a great language building activity for the children to share special things about themselves with their classmates.  We can’t wait to see everyone’s special treasures.  We are so excited to have your children at O’Quinn and are looking forward to a fantastic and memorable year.

5’s

Welcome to Kindergarten!  Our unit for the first week is the Solar Eclipse. This will be followed by the units, ” All About Me” and “ Me on the Map”, investigating our world to our very own city, Charleston.  Activities include making “All About Me posters”, painting our state and our country and exploring the 7 continents. Reading will focus on the theme, School, and our writing letters  are Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, Ee, Ff, Gg, Hh, Ii, Jj, Kk, and Ll. Each child will receive his/her very own sight word bag and Learning Fun bag on Tuesday, Sept.5th . Our math focus includes graphing, sorting, counting, comparing, grouping and directional words. We will also concentrate on numeral formation 0-6.  Don’t forget Show and Tell every Friday with the item correlating to our unit of study.
