Other Kindergarten Learning...

On the Road Readers

On MONDAY your kindergartner will be bringing home his/her first book packet borrowed from our classroom. Look for a letter explaining this program in Monday's folder. Please work hard to read these books at home and return your packet on a regular basis so new books can be sent home. I understand you may not get to them every night, but try to make a habit out of returning the packet a few times per week to get new books. Thanks for supporting your young reader!

Artifact Reminder

Have you sent in your child's artifacts? Remember, artifacts can be anything that can be glued into a life book....pictures, brochures, wrappers, magazine clippings. Please send them in soon!

Home links

Sometimes you will find math or literacy "home links" in your child's folder on Fridays. These sheets do not need to be returned. Use as you see fit. Many kids have begged me for homework!! Hopefully this love for homework continues through the years!! If you would like more, just let me know.

Imagination Day

On Friday, October 30th we will have Imagination Day. Kindergartners are invited to wear something to school from their IMAGINATION or something they want to be when they grow up. This could be a Halloween costume, but please make sure the costume is non-violent and school appropriate.

Technology to Share...

Check out our blog for a posting about our fun "bus" song that helped us with our letter sounds.

iPad Apps

Another awesome writing app...
