Important Information about Upcoming Events

Field Trip to Bernheim

We are excited about our field trip on Tuesday to Bernheim. We are thrilled to have lots of parents and grandparents going with us. Remember to pack a lunch for your child for the trip (and for yourself, if you are attending). Also, make sure your child brings a snack that we will eat on the bus on our trip there. It will make our trip easier if both their lunch and snack is packed in disposable bags, so that we don't have to keep track of lunchboxes or other containers. The busses will be leaving school at 8:15 and returning around 2:45. If you are chaperoning, you are welcome to follow the bus from school.

Book Orders

Last week I sent home Scholastic book orders. Thank you to those who have placed an order online. Everything you order helps us get new books for our classroom. If you would like to order there is still time. Just go online at www.scholastic.com/readingclub and put in class code J3Z63. I will be closing the order on Monday afternoon.

Kindergarten is AWESOME!!!

Mark your Calendars--Open House is September 30th.

Literacy

Our literacy block is going well. We have been working on letter recognition, letter sounds, sight words and reading alone, with a partner and in the loft. We have also been writing about our families and things we enjoy doing at home. Please, make sure your child is reading or being read to every night for 10-15 minutes.

Math

In math, we have been working on patterning, counting, number order and sorting. The boys and girls are enjoying working on the Smartboard and using lots of math manipulatives.
