A Quick Look at Kindergarten

Special Announcements:

  Students will come to school on President’s Day, February 21st to make up a snow day.

   You will notice that next week we will be introducing money during Math time.  Please don’t be too alarmed.  We will focus on identifying the penny, nickel, dime and quarter and their values; but we realize that this is a very difficult concept so we will not be assessing this as an “I can” statement.

    We will also be learning about “Presidents”.  The children always enjoy learning fun facts about some of our former presidents.

Snow, snow, snow! 

Because of missing school due to poor weather conditions, some days Kyrock’s lunch menus have to be changed because of the way food must be ordered and prepared.   Thank you for understanding.
Since we have had so many snow days, we have had trouble keeping a routine with our reading homework.  If your child does not know all of the alphabet letters and sounds, please work on them at home.  The third nine weeks of school really picks up on reading skills.  We will be working very hard to “sound-out” words.  We have also began to send home word rings with High Frequency Words from our reading books.  Please keep this ring in your child’s reading folder and we will be adding new words as the weeks go by.  We appreciate all of your support and help with making this a successful year in school for your child.

We are really running low on wet wipes and anti-bacteria wipes for the classroom. Please send some in! Maybe we will be able to make them last until May.

Kindergarten News~ August 20th

   We had lots of fun during week 3 of kindergarten!  We are still trying to learn our rules and procedures! Ask your child if they have been flipping cards.  Many are getting those stickers for good behavior!

   Please look at your child’s CAN in the Friday folder.  I am so proud of our success this week.  *We have assessed identifying shapes, identifying front/back of book, singing ABC Song, sorting by colors, & knowing one’s birthday.  If your child is missing one of these cans, please assist them at home.  We are working hard every day at school.

 Always return the CAN on Mondays.  Thanks!  J

  Next week our “I Can” goals will be:  1) Orally stating the five senses   2) Sorting by shapes.

   Our themes will continue to be “Five Senses” and “Nursery Rhymes/Fairy Tales.”  Many students are catching on that rhyming words = same ending sound.  This is a skill that greatly enhances reading progress. 

   Check out (Elmo’s Rhyming) for at-home practice.

   We have sent home a “Highlights” flyer. Please sign it and send it back even if you DO NOT wish to subscribe for Highlights.  Our classroom earns prizes for the number of flyers we get back. If your child returns the form signed they will earn a sticker!

   You will also find your child’s Math Whizz username/password. This is a wonderful way for your child to gain math skills.  We will be using this all year long here at school.  I feel very lucky to be able to use it as a learning tool!

    Our first PTO meeting will be Monday, August 23rd (6:00 p.m. in our lunchroom).  Please make plans to come join us.  There are always prizes, food, and we’d love to have your input on our school-wide activities!
