School Schedule

Your girls have now completed a full month of school! We have been working and learning for five weeks now and have just three weeks left before we will break for Advent term. Even in this short time, the girls have all shown improvement and success in learning new things. Some of the highlights so far have been:
  • Completing their first memory assignment
  • Learning enough phonogram sounds to start reading their first word lists
  • Correctly identifying all the lowercase letters
  • Learning to correctly form several lowercase letters "between the lines"
  • Beginning their understanding of "place value" in math
As we continue on with the remainder of this term I will be noting carefully what to have them work on at home during their long holiday break and what will be most important to start back with in the new year.

I would like to hear from parents how our weekly schedule is working for each of you. Has it been awkward or difficult to have Tuesdays off rather than Fridays? Have you been able to manage the 12:30pm drop off time? Is there any changes or improvements you would like to see in our weekly schedule?

I will be taking time during the holiday term to reevaluate our schedule and curriculum and it would help me to know of any concerns or ideas you may have.

Have a good weekend!
