This Week

This week kindergarten will continue their study of pets and pet care. On Thursday, the kind people of C.A.R.E. along with Luna, their husky, will come and talk to the kindergarten class. They will discuss how to care for a pet. They will also ask the class to help their organization. Then the kindergartners will devise a plan of how they will help C.A.R.E. and the pets of Columbus.

Mrs. Aldrich's class will host this week's Town Hall Meeting. They will share with the school about the C.A.R.E. visit from Thursday. The meeting begins at 8am on Friday, the 5th. All speaking parts for the meeting will be sent home in the folders on Tuesday, the 2nd.

Memory Words of the Week

To help our kiddos learn memory words we have added this section to the newsletter. Each week we will put two memory words for your kiddo to practice at home. The memory words featured in this section will also be the memory words we are practicing in class. We will also do our best to give you ideas in which you can practice the words at home. Please feel free to mark the memory word practice from this section on your child's Homework Menu. If your child is has mastered the memory words of the week feel free to pick a different word off of the BCSC memory word list.

Memory Words of the Week



Ideas for Practice:

  • Have your child spell a word by arranging small objects to form the letters of the word.
  • Put the memory words on your kiddos favorite snack. Each time they want to have the snack they need to read the memory words to "unlock" the snack.
