Dear Students and Parents,
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend! I am looking forward to meeting with all of you this week to discuss your child's progress in Kindergarten! We will be shopping at the Book Fair on WEDNESDAY, first thing in the morning! If you would like your child to shop with the class, please send their money in a LABELED envelope! If you do not want your child buying anything at the Book Fair, please explain to them your reason why so that they understand. Thanks!
**We are still in desperate need of supplies!**
Still needed for March:
-Gallon of water
-DONATION OF COPY PAPER PLEASE!!!!
-Pencils (Ticonderoga please!)
The children have been doing wonderfully on their spelling tests. Please remember to study their sight words with them each night. Also, it is just as important for your child to be able to write their sight words as it is to read them! We will be starting to use sight words to compose sentences, so please practice putting these words together to help them read/write sentences.
Please remember to check our class web page for any news and updates about what is going on in our class! Also be sure to check our school website and calendar for any important updates!
-CHANGES IN TRANSPORTATION MUST BE IN WRITING!
-Please label your child's HEALTHY MORNING SNACK with the letter "M" on it.
- Remind your child about the importance of staying safe in our classroom. This means we keep our hands on our own bodies, we sit criss-cross applesauce, hands in our laps, and we raise our hand to leave our seats.
- Remind them to ALWAYS ask for help.
-Please practice writing their name (first and last) with only the first letters being uppercase letters.
- When writing, please ONLY use pencil! Unless the directions say to color, we ONLY write with pencil :)
**PRACTICE LETTER/SOUND RECOGNITION EVERY DAY!!**
-Remember to have fun while learning!
This week in K-2:
We will finish up Chapter 9- 2 Dimensional Shapes. We will begin by learning about triangles, circles, squares, and rectangles. We will also be learning about the "fancy word" for corners- vertices! Please, please, please continue to practice number recognition with numbers to 100. They should also work on counting to 100 by 10's and 5's. There are great songs on Youtube that can help make this easier for them! Remind your child, "When we write teen numbers, the 1 goes first!"
