Mrs Saxon will be out of the classroom in the morning!
Cluster Showcase- NO family friday. We will eat lunch in the classroom, PLEASE send your child with lunch if you can instead of purchasing in the lunchroom
Friday Lunch (January 15th)
I would HIGHLY suggest your child brings a lunch from home on this day. The cafeteria will be selling sack lunches, but they tend to not have the best variety and aren't the kid's favorite. I will try and remind you :)
Next Week We Are Learning...
Math: Identifying coins, ways to make a number, and counting to 50!
Science: Planting & life cycle of a plant
Social Studies: Tattling vs. Reporting and Conflict Resolution
Money, Money, Money!!
In kindergarten, students are expected to know the name of each coin (penny, nickel, dime, quarter). They should be able to look at the coin and identify it. In first grade, they must tell the value of each coin. For now, we are just focusing on identifying- but it can't hurt to discuss how much they are worth :)
Some students are really struggling with the difference between the nickel and the quarter. Please help your child at home with this and maybe give some tricks you use to tell the difference. The more practice they get, the better. Please let me know if you have any questions!
January Presentations- Due January 25th
If you notice, at the bottom of the paper, it encourages you to use index cards or cue cards for kids to read off of as notes. Please do not use the outline paper during the presentation. Some of the kids don't need notes at all, and that's fine! Index cards for each line can help remind them of what to say.
Also notice that the outline mentions your child's "visual" they bring can be an outfit they wear to represent what they want to be when they grow up! Again, have fun with this and enjoy practicing with your child. Each month we are blown away at how great they are! Let me know if you have any questions :)
We will do our best to make sure jackets get returned home to you. Many times, the kids stuff their jackets at the back of their cubby because they don't want to wear it home- no matter how many reminders. A simple reminder to your child or a quick reminder email to me can help your jackets from being lost.
Please sign up below to help teachers out for lunch and recess duty for the month of January!!
