Adventures in Mrs. Tuckett's Class

Week of September 29-October 3

This Week

Snack: Mandy Peterson

Curriculum: We will be finishing up Safety week and then we will start to learn about continents. We are continuing to learn rhyming and we are working on writing 6-10. The Letters we are working on are P, Q, R, and S. This week's sight words are 'he' and 'I'.

Take Home Pickle and Peanut for the Weekend: No one yet! Let me know if you want to sign up for this weekend. It's a great experience and the kids love it. Plus you only have them for 2-3 days, not forever.

Upcoming Events: The Kiddie 500 will happen on Tuesday. It's a fun car safety training for the kids.

A sincere thank you

I just wanted to express a sincere thank you to those parents and grandparents and community volunteers who have donated time or money to help in the classroom. Here's some of the thoughtful acts of kindness that have been preformed this month:

  • A grandparent came into class and read 3 times
  • A mom came in and helped with centers
  • A volunteer from the community helped 4 days
  • A parent donated Tootsie Rolls for the Fall Festival
  • Every week a parent has brought daily snacks for the children
  • One family came weekly to clean the classroom

These and many other unrecognized acts of kindness are what make our class and our school so remarkable. Thank you.

Funny Kindergarten Story of the Week--Smokey the Bear

"Boys and Girls! On Thursday we will get a visit by Smokey the Bear!" I announce. My excitement is met with confused looks and blank stares.

"Who's Smokey the Bear?" asks Jason.

"He's a bear who will teach you how to prevent forest fires." I reply

"Can he talk?"

"No, I don't think so. Although he might say 'Only you can prevent forest fires.'"

"If he can't talk, how is he going to teach us?" asks Jason.

"I don't know. I'll look that up."

"How did you get him to come to our school?" asks Randy.

"I called him." I say.

"But he can't talk!" said Jason.

Children's names have been changed.
