ROE Rocks Family Night!

We invite you to a family night here at ROE September 17th from 6 PM-7:45 PM.

You will get to hear about our WatchDOGS program (with pizza - see Mrs. Corns' newsletter that was sent out Friday), visit your child's pod and hear about all the things that they will be doing throughout the year. Kindergarten teachers will be doing a "quick overview" every 15 minutes starting at 6:15 PM. Come by for one of our presentations to see what this year has in store.

Kindergarten sight words

The list of sight words that were sent home a week ago are the words that we will be learning all throughout the year. Our first sight club is the "RED CLUB". We are learning these words at school too. We will be adding 3 new words a week throughout the year. Please take a few minutes a day to just flash these words with your child so that they get a little more practice at home. Also, taking 15 minutes a night to read to your child is a wonderful routine for them and for you. They need to see us reading and modeling how to read. We will start sending home nightly readers soon. This will get you into the groove of reading every night!

Focus this week

ELAR -This week we will identify syllables in spoken words, recognizing that sentences are comprised of words separated by spaces and recognizing word boundaries. We will also

restate and follow oral directions that involve a short, related sequence of actions.

Math-This week will be 2D shapes. Circle, triangle, rectangle and square (a special type of rectangle). We will continue subitizing numbers through the year and work up to subitizing to 10 so keep working on those too!

Science - We will discover our sense of touch and taste through simple investigations.

Social Studies- We will learn the importance of Patriot's Day. We will continue to learn what it means to be a good citizen in our community, home and school.
