Something to Think About

Before the fruits of prosperity can come, the storms of life need to first bring the required rains of testing, which mixes with the seeds of wisdom to produce a mature harvest.” 

― Lincoln Patz

“Autumn. It's crispness, it's anticipation, it's melancholia, it's cool breezes replacing summer's heat. It's long days in the field, a harvest festival when work's done, a cheering crowd in a football stadium, chrysanthemums punctuating a somber landscape. It's Halloween highjinx, pumpkins grinning toothy smiles, the crack of pecan pressed against pecan. It's the first curls of woodsmoke, fresh blisters from pushing a rake. It's crisp and fresh and mellow and snug, solemn and melancholy. And it's very, very welcome.” 

― Good Housekeeping Magazine


“The kind of soil in your area determines the type of crop you will plant to harvest; The kind of potentials in you will decide the type of success you will celebrate.” 

― Israelmore Ayivor

Our Language Art Focus


1) Work on naming  all capitol and lower case letters out of order

2) Work on saying the sound of upper and lower case letters out of order

3) Match or say as many words that start with the letter you see or are shown

4) Create rhyming words 

5) Work on identifying beginning  and ending sound of a word


guide  your child to ask and answer questions about key details in a text.

guide  your child to identify the main topic and retell key details of a text.

guide your child to describe the connection between two individuals, events, ideas, or pieces of information in a text.

Writing Skill:

* Work on the formation of upper and lower case letters

*Work on sounding out and writing the letter that matches the sound to make words

* Work on leaving finger space between to words

A good way to start these is to work on your child's first and last name: teach each letter name , sound, correct way to make the letter and start using lower case. Make this fun, use play dough, shaving cream, a paintbrush and water, but model first!

Start small and add on!
