Candy Letter Match:
-Write pairs of letters on sticker dots and place them on the bottom of several Hershey's Kisses. Put out about 10 pairs at a time. If the letters match, they keep it. Those that do not match, they put it back. At the end of the game, all of the Hershey's Kisses goes back in the middle of the table.
-Choose any 10 letters at a time from the letter manipulatives such as foam letters, magnetic letters, etc. Go through a stack of shuffled letter cards and call out each letter. As the letters are called, they should look to see if they have that letter and put it in a basket.
-To practice letter sounds: Call out a word and have your child identify the first letter of the word.
Memory Game: (This can be used for letters, numbers, and sight words)
- Put the matching pairs of the letters, numbers, or sight words layed out on the table or floor. As each card is flipped over, say whatever is flipped over. For letters, they may also say the sounds. If the cards do not match, flip it back over. For the cards that do match, keep it where you can see and continue reciting as each of the other cards are being flipped until game is over.
Listen and Spray Letter/Counting Game:
-Write numbers/letters on the sidewalk or wooden fence.
-For numbers, have your child listen to how many claps or the number you call out and then spray the number with water.
-For letters, have your child listen to the letter or sound that you call out and spray letter with water.
-Write numbers on a paper cup or styrofoam cup and have your child place and count the item in the cup. Example of manipulatives: beans, buttons, pipe cleaners, etc.

From Father Chris It is with heart felt joy that I am able to celebrate Mass with the students at Sacred Heart each week. As we move forward, I have a couple of requests. For parents who attend the School Mass. Please allow the students to sit with their class during Mass. This is an extension of their religious instruction they receive as part of Sacred Heart Catholic School. When attending Masses for special events such as Grandparents Day, the students may sit with their families in attendance. As a reminder to the presence of our Lord and Savior at each Mass, please refrain from chewing gum, eating or using a cell phone for games or texting during Mass. Sacred Heart Parish is blessed to have a Catholic School as part of our parish ministries. May God bless you for the sacrifice you make to allow your children a Catholic Education. Rev. Chris Unachukwu.
