Fall Pictures

Please look for picture forms in red folders today. Picture day is Wednesday, September 27th. 

Orientation

What a fantastic group of parents you all are! Thank you for coming out and hearing what I had to say for a bit. I appreciate your time and involvement as we work together for our little ones! My friends who didn't make it out tonight, I totally understand! Life! I will be sending home a packet in your child's red folder.
As always, please contact me for whatever reason.
Thanks again and see you all soon! 

Pictures

If you have not brought your picture for our writing assignment in yet, don't worry, you still have time to do so. Please try and send them in by Thursday.
Thanks for all your help!

Sight Words

I have attached the Kindergarten sight words to help you practice at home. The first column is the first 9 weeks and the words we are working on now. The second column is the second 9 weeks and so on. Please add these words into your homework routine. I will be sending home card stock flash cards at meet the teacher. 

next week

During the week of September 25th, we will be giving a writing pre-assessment. Data gained from this pre-assessment will give us a guideline of where to begin our writing instruction. Your child’s teacher will share this information with you during your fall parent conference. We are asking that by Tuesday, September 19th you send a picture from which your child can verbally retell a good amount of information about the subject of the photo. They should be able to tell someone where they were, who they were with and what happened. For example, if the photo is of your child at Disney World, your child should be able to say, “I went to Disney World with my family. This is a picture of me with my favorite character, Minnie Mouse.”

*Pictures may be printed from your home computer. Please write your child’s name on the back of the picture, so we can return them to you in their red folder.*

 Thank you,

The Kindergarten Teachers

Library tomorrow

please return library books in backpacks tomorrow so your child can check out a new book! :)

Homework

Please look for a reading log in red folders tonight. You will have until the end of the month to complete. It can stay at home or in folders until then, whatever is easier for you. I also included flash cards with letters and pictures to help you practice letter sounds at home with you child. Feel free to color and cut them.
 
The bold letters below are the ones we have worked on in class so far. We will continue working with one letter daily if you'd like to keep up with us. (Ask your child to sing you the chant we do with our letter sounds!)

I encourage you to take a little time each night to sit and read with your child. It's a great way to bond and help them become life long readers.

Library Books

Our library day is Thursdays. Students may keep their library books all week long and do not have to bring them to school each day. Students only checked out 1 book this week. We discussed taking care of our book by keeping them away from food/drinks and from little brothers and/or sisters. 
Thanks for your at home support! 

Lunch/Orientation questions

I have had a few questions and concerns about students buying lunch in the cafeteria. Please be aware that all students who are buying lunch are given a card with their name and number on it to have when they purchase their lunch. There will always be someone to help them punch their number in if needed. 
 
We still do not have a confirmed date for Orientation Night. This should be coming soon and I will let you know as soon as we have a date. Our plan as a team was to discuss homework with parents that evening and begin homework then. Since we do not have a confirmed date, I will be sending home a reading log on Monday for the month of September along with a page that explains it in more detail. As the year continues and the students become more independent in reading and writing, homework will change based on their needs. 
 
As always, if you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Wednesday folders

Wednesday folders will be sent home today in your child's backpack. This folder is only sent on Wednesdays and should be returned (empty) on Thursday. You can expect to find flyers, letters from the school, or your child's work depending on what is being sent that week. Please look through the Wednesday folder tonight and return it tomorrow. Thank you!
