We are so excited about all the events coming up in Kindergarten. We have our first field trip to Schmitts Pumpkin Farm on Thursday and we are practicing for our All Saints' Day Pageant. The hallway is looking very "fall festive" with the students fall writing.  We also read "Spookly the Square Pumpkin." The children all painted different shaped pumpkins and we hung them in the hallway....each one is different and special; just like us.
Please be sure to check this web page weekly for reminders and class happenings. As always, feel free to email me if you have any questions or concerns at
Remember to join REMIND (let me know if you need directions resent home).

Just a few reminders:
**Changes in transportation MUST be in writing.
**Your child will be coming home with a folder each day. Please be sure to go through the folder and take out any notices that may be in there.
Please be sure to send in one HEALTHY snack for your child. Please also send in a drink with their lunch and a spoon, if needed. Please try to refrain from sending in peanut butter with your child.
The children have started to practice writing their name (the first letter of their name should only be capitalized). Please give them practice at home with this, as well.
Each week our class page will be updated. This will give you information about what we will be learning in class, important events, due dates, field trips, etc. The sidebar on the left will be updated with useful links to websites for you and your child, as well as our calendar. At the bottom of the web page, you will find our special schedule.

When writing, please only use pencil......unless otherwise noted.
Practice letters and their sounds.

This week, we will continue Unit 1 in Fundations. This unit lasts approximately 12 weeks. We will also be working on letters and practicing how to write our name. Please give your child as much practice writing as possible. All letters should be touching lines. Directions will go home as to how children should specifically be writing letters. Please note sight words for the week. I suggest writing all sight words on index cards and reviewing with your child. The more they see them, the more quickly they will recognize them.

Letters of the week: c and o
Sight words of the week: to, can
Poem of the Week
We will also be reading books about Fall and Halloween.
*****Please have your child practice writing their name each night. 

We will begin  Chapter 3-Numbers 6-9. Children will learn how to write and count from 6-9. Have your child practice counting real life objects at home. We have learned that numbers should touch the top (sky line) and bottom (grass line) and not float. Please have your child practice writing numbers 1-9 as much as possible.

We will begin talking about the season of Fall.

We are preparing for our All Saints Day Pageant.

If you have any questions, concerns or comments throughout the year, please feel free to contact me.
