Kindergarten Kingdom News...

Mrs. Johnson's and Mrs. Lawlor's Kindergarten Class

We are learning...

Reading and Language Arts: We read the story Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson. The students loved making the snoring sounds for the bear...sounded like they have heard snoring before! We practiced retelling the story. Have your student tell you the story for extra practice!

Math: We made "Countdown Chains" this week! We also reviewed money- penny, nickel, and dime- , practiced making and extending patterns, and reviewed solid and flat shapes. We are getting ready for our unit assessments next week!

Science and Social Studies: We are learning about polar animals. We did an experiment with a blubber glove! Ask your student about what blubber is and what it does for polar animals!

Ms. Payne was totally overwhelmed by your thoughtfulness and generosity. Thank you for the special gifts!

Things to remember...

  • On Monday, December 7th, our class will have an opportunity to purchase holiday gifts at Kedron's Holiday Shop. This is a neat opportunity because your child can select, purchase, and wrap up gifts for family members. They love it, because they get to surprise you! There is a great array of gifts to choose from, priced $1.00 to $10.00. Your child will receive an envelope in their purple folder for you to plan their visit to the Holiday Shop. Please complete the envelope with the names (Joe, Mary, Grandma Sue, etc) and suggested amount per person. You will also need to include a check (payable to Kedron) or cash, and return it to your child's teacher. Sorry, no credit cards can be accepted. All students will visit the Holiday Shop even if they do not have money to buy gifts. They will be assisted in making a "wish list."
  • Don't forget to send in the holiday traditions paper by December 10th so your student can share how your family celebrates the holidays!
  • Our class Holiday Party is on Thursday, December 17th @ 12:30 pm-1:30 pm.
  • We will celebrate the Polar Express on Friday, December 18th! Wear pajamas!!
  • Please check your child's folder today for important information from the clinic!
  • Next week, Jeremiah is our Knight of the Week!
