Welcome back and happy new year! We have had a great first week back. We are now in the second half of kindergarten and we have been discussing this in our classroom. Some of the boys and girls are continuing to have difficulty with the WISE rules. Please make sure to discuss with your child the importance of listening to teachers and following directions, as well as being kind to others. Thank you for your help with this!
We are learning all about winter weather and snow. We will continue this unit next week and we will be focusing on the things we do and wear in the winter time. On Friday we will learn about Martin Luther King Jr. as we prepare to celebrate his birthday.
Your child has now learned all of the letters and sounds. If your child does not know all of these (and several do not), please practice these for a few minutes each evening. In addition please make sure to practice heart words daily. Baggie books will be coming home twice weekly so please make sure that you are reading nightly and returning them after two nights at home. This at home practice is vital for your child to be reading on grade level and ready for first grade in a few months.
Please make sure that your child is bringing a snack and water/juice each day.
Lucia was our "Star of the Week" this week. We made a special video about her. Check it out on the "Star of the Week" link.
