Mrs. Rhodes' Newsletter

Week of Monday, November 18th

This Week in Room 508

In readers workshop we will continue to discuss characters in stories. The students will define a character as a person, animal, or object acting as a person.

In writers workshop we will learn to stretch our story out across multiple pages.


In math we are starting to practice skip counting. This is something you can work on at home or in the car with your Kindergartner. We are counting by 10's, 5's, and 2's.


This Friday's spirit day is Scarf Day.

Picture Retakes

This Tuesday, November 19th is picture retake day. If you would like to have your child's picture retaken, please send the photos you ordered back in your child's folder. Students who were absent will also take their pictures.

We are also looking for a couple of parents to come up on enrichment day to help with our castle craft. We are creating a castle mural with different materials. Volunteers are needed from 9:15-10:00 am. Please email me to let me know you are wanting to volunteer.

Special Person's Day

Special Person's Day is Tuesday, November 26th and our program will begin at 8:30 in the cafeteria. We invite all family members to come in to the classroom directly after morning assembly to let your child share some of the work they have done in Kindergarten. Because seating is limited in the program, we are asking family members to head down to the gym around 8:20 am to get a good seat.
