Ms. Wells' October Newsletter

Introduction

Hello parents, our kindergarten class is excited for the month of October. We have tons of exciting activities planed this month. During open house I got to meet many of you, and I am excited to get to know more about you and your child during parent teacher conferences that will take place at the end of the month. I will send more information via email about parent teacher conferences. Some information to remember about me is I have been teaching here for three years now. I graduated with my bachelors in Human Development and Family Studies with certification to teach Early Childhood to Sixth grade from the University of Houston. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.

Field Trip

On October 22, 2015 we will be taking a field trip to the local fire station. This will take place in the morning and we will be back to school before lunch. I will be sending home permission forms on the October 15th, they will need to be returned signed by October 21st, or your child will be unable to attend the field trip.

Dress Code Reminder

As the colder weather approaches we need to remind you that if it is below 60 degrees Fahrenheit ALL students must wear a jacket outside at recess. Also, there have been many students not wearing closed toe shoes on gym days. Just a reminder we have gym on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Photo Credit.

At home activity

In class we have been enjoying our time together, especially computer time! One of

the favorite games in class is Fuzzy Lion Ears, it is a game on pbskids.org, the URL

for the specific game is http://pbskids.org/lions/games/ears.html The introduction

is a lion who talks about how you use your ears to listen to sounds, once you start

the game the lion says a word and asks your child to find the missing letter in the

word by listening to the sound each letter makes. Your child can scroll the mouse

over each letter to hear the sound it makes. This game has helped so many students

with reading and spelling, they are begging to understand that each letter has its

own sound and when sounds are combined they make words. It is amazing to watch

them learn and explore each sound and see the excitement in their faces when they

get it right. I hope your child gets as excited when you play this game at home. Photo Credit.
