Your child has a field trip permission slip in his/her bag today. It would be great if you signed it and returned it with the eight dollars on Monday. Thanks! If you would like to chaperone, please sign that section and return it on Monday. I will have a child pick the four names out of a hat on Tuesday if we have more than five adults that would like to go. I will take lots of pictures so everyone will be able to experience the day one way or another. Thank you!
We had a busy week and are starting to understand how kindergarten works. I am proud of the kids for beginning to look for ways to be kind to one another and stopping and thinking of how they can help a friend. This concept is not always easy for everyone, but it has been amazing to watch the children’s confidence grow as they do the right thing without being asked. I love it!
We made lots of words, read books and did several writing activities with the letters b & r. We talk about all the letters each day and review their sounds and words that have those letters in them, but did an extra focus on b&r. Next week we will do the letter a. Here are the sight words we have been focusing on this year so far, is, am, here, I see, me, my, up, at, like, go, can, do, me & the. Thank you for helping your child with these letters and sounds.
We have been working on making, labeling and extending patterns. We have read books, danced, used objects (including ourselves) and explained to one another how our pattern works. If you see that your child is having a difficult time, please know I will continue to work with him/her and you can do so as well at home by having your child make different kinds of patterns. (You can use blocks, food or anything to make the patterns) thanks! Next week we will be working on identifying and writing numbers.
Next week we will be learning about apples and how apples grow throughout the different seasons. We will be having our fall party on Friday at 9:30. Please look on nlist to see how you can help the class. If you have not signed up, you can look at the directions I have sent previous weeks or the paper I sent home. If people have signed up for all the items and you would like to contribute to the class, please contact me. I have a few things we need in our class. Thanks!
I hope to see everyone that can make it on Friday for our fall party.
Take care and I hope you have a nice weekend,
