Week 2 Wrap Up

We worked really hard this week in kindergarten! We jumped into our curriculum for math and reading, and learned about our five senses. In math, we are working on counting to 5, recognizing and writing numbers 1-5, and representing those numbers with items. Our standard we have been focusing on says that students can "count to answer the question how many." You have seen colorful math papers come home. Please talk about each one with your child as they come home each night.

In reading, we learned about characters and can recognize characters in stories. We learned to use sight words to read and we learned to write several letters. Next week, we will work on setting, more letters, and adding the sight word "and."
In science, we used our five senses and learned what part of our body helps us use that sense.
We had an assembly with Barney Sue, a talking bus, this week to learn how to be safe on a bus.
Here's a glance at the standards we are focusing on next week.
We will be learning the Pledge of Allegiance next week. On Tuesday, you will see a flag project come home. We will be celebrating each child on Friday by sharing those flags.

Reminders
  • Please send a pair of headphones or earbuds to keep at school to use with iPads and Chrome Books. 
  • Please send a note in your child's orange folder if their afternoon transportation plans change. I will send them home the way I have unless you send a note, simply to keep your child safe. I cannot take your child's word for it. 
  • When you pick your child up in a car, please use the car line or park on a street other than 3rd Street. We will be down the sidewalk as soon as those who wait on the lawn are dismissed. It will keep everything running smoothly if you stay in your car and allow us to walk your child to the car.
Upcoming Dates
  • Monday, September 2 - No School
  • Wednesday, September 11 - Book Orders Due
  • Thursday, September 12 - No School, Inservice

As always, please contact me with any questions.
