Beach Buddies' Bulletin

January 4-8, 2016

Greetings from Kindergarten!

This week we learned about snow and snowmen. We also loved sharing and writing about our winter breaks. You folks were busy! We welcomed Ms. Meyer into our class family. She fits in perfectly!

Snow Creatures

Thank you for sending in your "junk" to help with our snow creatures. They are hanging up outside our classroom. Come and check them out!

Classroom Donations

Looking for a way to donate to our classroom? We are in need of:


*sticky-back Velcro

*Crayola "Twistable" crayons or colored pencils

*Cardstock -- multi-colored


Thanks for thinking of us!

Let me know if you are interested in more "extra" homework packets. Some of you asked and received packets in late fall. If you are needing more, just let me know!

Apps

Soon we'll be using Super Duper StoryMaker to help us create and write.

Raz-Kids

Raz Kids is a new site we will begin using in kindergarten to help us read "just right" books. I have purchased a subscription to this site so you will be able to access these books until next September.

You can go to the website:

OR

on a device, the app:

Choose KID LOG IN. When prompted to add teacher name, type: Zuehlke

You will click on your child's name and find your child's "assignment" --should be books near your child's independent reading level. You could also go to the "book room" and choose any book level. Make use of this great resource!

Upcoming Dates
