A LETTER FROM MRS. K

Dear Parents,

 

This first month has been so very exciting. Our friends learned all about the story of Jonah and the Whale. Our bible verse this month was on obedience. “Children obey your parents in the lord, for this is right,” Ephesians 6:1. All the kids have worked so hard and have learned the verse and love to show everyone. Our class also spent each week learning about ourselves. Week one was all about our bodies and how they work and what makes them bend and move. Week two was all about our senses and how they help us to learn about the world. Week three was all about the clothes that we wear and how other animals cover themselves. We have had so much fun learning all about us this month.

When we get back from 4th of July break, we have another amazing month planned. We will be learning all about the earth around us. We will start by learning about the trees and how they help us and how we can help them. Week two is all about the air and sky. We will learn about how animals fly, how the wind feels and sounds, and about what you see when you look up in the sky. Week three is all about water. We will learn how it is

measured, how it moves, and how we can use water in our lives. Our final week of the month, week 4, is all about dirt. We will discover how it looks and feels, and how we and other animals use dirt. Our bible story this month is The Creation Story in Genesis 1-3. We are getting so excited about learning new bible stories in our class. Our new bible verse for the month is Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." All the kids are so proud once they learn the verse by heart and love to show everyone. We have started off with the best of friends and cannot wait to learn, discover, play, and praise God with all we do here at Redstone Children's Academy! Our Rangers are learning to go out and be world changers!

Encourage
Summer Learning!

Here are a few ideas to encourage your child's learning all summer long:

A book a day keeps the chaos away. The simple routine of having quiet time with books can offer a needed rest in the early afternoon. Try reading one book with your child, ten invite them to select 3-4 books to take to a quiet spot.

Share the work of real-life jobs. There are many meaningful jobs for preschoolers to do in the summer, from watering plants to fun outdoor chores, such as washing toys and sweeping out the garage.

Eat the alphabet for a healthy mind and body. Keep a pack of letter cards on the table. Find the matching letter card for the beginning sound of each food that you and your child eat. How many days does it take to eat the whole alphabet?
