A peak into Kindergarten
This week, we have been working HARD on letter and number identification! I am already seeing so much progress!
Please keep working on letters, numbers and the sounds letters make at home! As the year progresses, I will send flashcards and different games that you can do at home to help reinforce the learning that is happening at school.
The class voted to have EXTRA RECESS as their reward for their 80 eagles! We will be celebrating with extra recess on Tuesday, September 8th!
Way to go Kindergarten! I am so proud of you!
Work in the Classroom

Writing: Different ways authors plan their writing. (Across fingers, touch and tell what will be on each page.)
Math: Naming groups that have more or less.
One thing we are working on is problem solving with our friends.
I have listed the steps that we encourage the students to use when they are in a situation where someone is doing something that is bothering them!
1. Take a deep breath!
2. Use your words (Look at the person and say "I don't like it when you___________, will you please stop?)
3. If the problem continues,use your words, again.
4. If the problem continues, raise your hand and tell a teacher about the problem.
We are focusing on handling and solving problems independently and not tattling!
Thank you for using this language at home with your child!
