Hello Kinder Families!

We are looking forward to meeting with you all for Fall Parent Teacher Conferences beginning this week!

Students will identify syllables in spoken words.

Students will blend spoken phonemes to form one‐syllable words.

an, has, it



Science:

Students will use their senses to explore light, sound, and thermal energy.

Last but not least, we want to reinforce our mantra of the power of play. Kindergarten is a time of great academic development. It is also a time when children form and solidify connections with their peers, develop social skills, and strengthen their ability to communicate their observations and thoughts. Play is an integral part of our day, as it nurtures social and emotional development.

Materials

This week, please send your child in with the below materials to stay in our classrooms:



  • iPad
  • Headphones
  • Pencil case (one big enough to fit their scissors, crayons and pencils)

Snack & Water

Please send your child in with a water bottle and a snack in a separate container/ziploc/etc. As we are all acclimating to the classroom, separating snack from lunch will make these times easier. We appreciate your help!
