From The Bat Cave
Room 141 News
I don't know about you, but there's something about a four day week AFTER a four day weekend that really makes me tired! The entire Bat Cave was dragging a bit today, but we persevered and finished the day strong (whew!)
This week has been a busy week. We started right off with a bus safety lesson where Miss Roberts and Mrs. Hamilton taught us what to do in case of an emergency while we are on the bus. Kiddos did a great job practicing!
We learned a few new brain/movement breaks that really stick in your head...for days. I'll be glad to share those tunes below (wink wink).
You can read further to know more about our week, but I do want to remind you all that next week is Conference Week and I am very excited to sit down with you all! If you haven't sent back your form, please do so immediately. I love to share in person how kindergarten has been going for your little superhero and inform you more about what's to come.
In case you haven't heard, our friend Carson is having a Birthoween Bash! Please read the information below and RSVP to Becky, Carson's mom ASAP! Sounds like a great time - I want to see pictures!!
Enjoy your weekend friends!

SUPERHERO OF THE WEEK
Full Name: Cooper Thomas Bucci
He has zero brothers and one sister (Alexandra). His favorite color is blue. Cooper's hobbies include riding dirt bikes, fishing, and playing baseball. When he grows up, Cooper wants to be a dirt bike rider! His favorite thing to do in kindergarten is play on the playground. Cooper believes he is good at coloring and bike riding!
Thanks for a great week Cooper!
Our nonfiction story was called "Seed, Sprout, Pumpkin, Pie". This is our first real introduction to nonfiction - stories that teach us something new and most of the time, have real photographs throughout the book. Did you know that pumpkins can be green, red, tan, yellow, white, or even blue!?
Our class has a subscription to Scholastic's Let's Find Out (you hopefully have seen this magazine in your kiddos' backpack this week!) We read the magazine together this week and watched a video all about the life of a pumpkin. We actually watched the video a couple of times and then answered questions all about the sequencing, or the order, of the life cycle of a pumpkin.
Letters & Letter Sounds
Nurse Dotty is our....you guessed it...our school nurse! She helps to keep us healthy. She can take our temperature, give us a bandaid, or sometimes she might have to help us after we've had an accident. Nurse Dotty may also have to call you moms and dads at home in case your kiddo is not feeling well or needs to be picked up. So please make sure we have your most up to date information!
Mrs. Loignon (pronounced Loyng-den) is our school social worker. She is here at Memorial Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays. We have been lucky enough to have her visit our classroom Friday afternoons to teach us about active listening, personal space, and the sizes of our problems.
Señora is our Spanish teacher! We have Spanish on Monday mornings. This year in class, we will learn our ABCs, numbers, colors, and animals in Spanish.
