Kindergarten Kudos

Ms. Bertucci & Mrs. Wilkinson News February 8-12, 2016

Friendly Reminders

  • Please initial your child's behavior calendar every night. This is very important since this is our communication with you.
  • Please send your child with a jacket every day, since we do go outside for recess and the weather changes dramatically in Texas. Please label all your children's belongings.
  • Attendance is really important because first grade is around the corner and we still have a lot of material to cover to get them ready.

Reading at home

Parents please remember that it is very important to read with your child at home. We have provided 2 important resources for this six weeks reading.

First, your child should have received 10 sight word readers. These are paper books that the students should be able to read independently by the end of the 6 weeks.

Second, we have access to the wonderful program called RAZ Kids! The students are getting a chance to read through books at school. You may access this vast library of books at their reading level through an iPad or computer. Visit . Choose kids login. Input teacher username (cwilkinson7 or mbertucci0). Once you are in the classroom choose your child's name. They may read to you or independently. They must pay attention closely. In the 2nd level they will have comprehension quizzes to see if they understood the story. This is a great way to have conversations about what they are reading.

Valentine Candy Grams

Candy-grams will only be for sale before and after school in the cafeteria starting on February 1st through February 9th. The students can send them to anyone in the school for $1. They will fill out a note and we will attach a piece of candy to it. We will deliver all candy-grams on February 12th during school.

Valentine Exchange

Students on February 12th will be able to exchange Valentines. Please send in enough Valentine's for every student in the classroom. Have your child only fill out the "From" portion of the valentine. They may write their own name on each Valentine. This will make it easier to pass out at school. We will have a special snack that day and each student will decorate a bag to place their Valentines they receive. Please do not send in bags or boxes, as this is an activity we will complete at school. Thank you!

Jump Rope for Heart

Jump Rope for Heart information came home Thursday. Money will be collected from February 5th through February 24th. Event will be on Thursday, February 25th during your students special time.
