Miss Martinez's Kinder Friends

September 8 - September 11

Greetings from Miss Martinez!

We have had a wonderful first week of kindergarten! I am so proud of each and every student for their hard work this week. Please consider sending a picture of you and your kindergartener to help decorate our classroom.

**Please note to only send water in your kindergarteners water bottles.

Learning Targets

This week we have worked to learn routines for our classroom and shared spaces. We have also learned how to use many of the materials and tools in our classroom.

Letter Sounds

We learned the letters S and A. Please practice these sounds at home. An easy way to practice is to play I spy while driving. Look at signs and buildings to find these letters and practice the sounds they make.

Hopes and Dreams

Ask your kindergartener to tell you about Gerald the giraffe and what he hopes to be able to do. Like Gerald we all have something we hope to learn this year and we are going to work together to be sure that everyone reaches their hope and dream.

Monthly Newsletter

I will send this newsletter home monthly in addition to our weekly communication note. This will be used as a way to update you on all we are learning this year. To help save on paper, I will be sending it via email. If you do NOT want it sent to your email, please send a note.
