Beach Buddies' Bulletin

November 9-13

Hello Kindergarten Families!

50 days of kindergarten already! Wow! What a close little class family we have become. We had a fun Friday filled with stations, floats, dancing, and more!

50th Day of School

Word Workshop

This week we started a new workshop time in our classroom-- Word Workshop. During this time, we will focus on making words. Right now we are working on words like AM, AT, SAM, CAT. We also made star words like IS, WE, THE, and GO.

Monster Making

Monday we made our own monsters and created a graph showing our favorite monster story read last week.

Razzle Dazzle

Remember to send in your Razzle Dazzle Reader tally sheet. Please work hard to reach that goal of at least 10 books per week. Thank you for your help!

Let it Snow...

With winter weather on the way, please send warm clothes for recess. We will go outside everyday unless the temps are below zero. If needed, practice zipping coats at home to be sure this can be done independently. Since we will soon be wearing boots, please be sure your child can tie his/her shoes. Thank you!

Scarecrow Day

Friday is Scarecrow Day! We'll be making felt vests in school, but the kinders are also invited to wear other scarecrow gear such as hats, flannel shirts, boots, jeans, etc. We will also use a small amount of face paint. If you DO NOT want your child using face paint, please let me know.

Fruit Feast

We are still looking for help with our Fruit Feast on Wednesday, November 25th. We would need help prepping and serving fruit as well as cleaning up. This event takes place from about 1:00-2:30. Let me know if you are interested. Thank you!!
