Kicking It In K2!

Learning, growing, exploring, discovering...together!

Week of December 1-5

Can you believe that we are already at the start of December? It's amazing how much we've already grown and learned and the school year isn't even halfway finished yet!

What are we learning?

This week's sight word: he

Reading/Language Arts

We are having some fun this week and next with different versions of "The Gingerbread Man." Our focus is looking at certain story elements (setting, characters, ending) in each version to decide which version is our class favorite. Stay tuned!

Math
We are doing a review of numbers up to 20 this week as well as introducing coins. In kindergarten, students are expected to be able to identify quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.

Library Day Every Wednesday!

Please help your child remember to put their library book in their backpack every Tuesday night so it's ready for library day on Wednesdays. I want everyone to be able to check out a new book each week! Thank you!

S. E. M. - Schoolwide Enrichment Model

Your child may have already told you about how special Friday mornings are at Austin with E-time. Please take a look at our GTI/Enrichment Specialist's own Smore newsletter and blog to learn a little about what all that means and how you could get involved!

Lunch and Recess Volunteers

The sign up has been updated with dates available up to the start of spring break. If you are able, we'd love to have you join us! The time commitment is just one hour (10:15-11:15). All volunteers must have completed a background check before working with students is permitted. It generally takes a week to be processed. Here's a link: Coppell ISD Background Check for Volunteering.
