Your child's packet for Friday's Remote Learning is in their backpack. Please return all of the items in the packet to school on Monday.

The LESA (Lutheran Elementary SChool Association) organization that our school is part of, is having a Christmas Card Artwork Contest. I have attached directions if your child is interested in doing this. I have some very good drawers in this class, it would be fun to see some try it. Please turn your entry in by Friday, October 2. Thanks.

Thank you to everyone who volunteered to send in fruit snacks or rice krispies. I have enough for a while. I will let you know when it is your turn to send a box in.

If you have not returned your child's "I'm A New Student At St. John's" yard sign, please bring it to the office next week.

A letter went home Thursday about our first Remote Learning Friday on September 25. I showed the students some of this presentation at school, so they will be a little familiar with it. I will send the link to the email you gave me Thursday, after school. If you have any problems, call my cell#.

Some students have returned their "Home Reading Record" sheet, or I just call it a Reading sheet and have chosen a treasure out of my Treasure Box. Our friend, Captain Patty, the pirate loves having children "walk the plank" to find treasure from the Treasure Box. Donations will happily be accepted for the Treasure Box.

JESUS TIME: God promised Abraham that all people would be blessed through his family because the Savior would come from his family. God gives all His children the blessing of the Savior. We sang the song, "Father Abraham." We played the game Abraham's Journey. We made a TRUST sign to remember that we can believe God's promises, he is in control of our life.

PHONICS: We learned about the letter sound of Tt. We are learning that there are 26 letters in the alphabet. The letters a, e, i, o and u are called vowels. All of the other letters are consonants. We learned a phonics rule: a vowel followed by a consonant is short we code it with a breve. You may have noticed this little smile above the letter o on our letter sheets. We are learning to blend letter sounds to read words like log, hog and hot. This process takes practice and modeling. I hope you are taking time to go over the "letter sheets" that come home each day. Ask about the letter and its sound. The keyword begins with the letter sound and helps us remember the sound. When we write letters on our letter sheets, we always write lowercase letters. We are also singing color songs and are beginning to learn to read color words. We use the color words in our math stories.

SIGHT WORD CARDS: New word cards are: I, one, two, three, four. We will have number word songs to help us learn to read the number words.

MATH: We learned different ways to show the number 3 and how to make 3. We are also learning the concept of more and how many more. We are learning about addition. We are sorting by shape, size and color.

HANDWRITING: We practiced the lowercase letter "h" and the capital "H." When I "grade" these, I circle 3 of the best letters they make. Please show your child their handwriting sheets when I send them home.

SCIENCE: We have been learning about our five senses. Each science lesson we have, one students gets a turn to be the Scientist Assistant and wear a white lab coat. We planted our grass seed and are now patiently waiting for it to start growing. We made a book about our senses.

Thank you to everyone who has been doing their math homework and turning it in. I put stickers on homework that is returned, so make sure students see their stickers. We don't have time at school for them to see the stars or stickers I put on their papers. When students make mistakes on the work we do in class, Miss Patty or I will work with them to correct it before I send the paper home. I will do the same for homework.

I have collected 17 thank you cards for our Bible storybooks. If you have not written yours out yet, please do so by the end of next week. I will deliver them at the Guild's next meeting.

Students started the Accelerated Reader program. Thank you to volunteers Kristin Sachtleben and Erin Kuehn for helping with this. A.R. is a reading program. Each child will be read a book of their choice and then answer 5 questions about the book. It helps with comprehension and keeping reading fun.

Friday, September 25 Remote Learning Day, No Student Attendance
Monday, September 28 Fall Picture Day
Wednesday, September 30 Happy Birthday, Tripp!
