Kindergarten News

Fall Greetings from the Kindergarten Room!

We hope that this newsletter finds everyone well and enjoying the beautiful fall weather.

We have been very busy in our first full month of Kindergarten. In Math we’ve been practicing with patterns–building them, extending them, changing them. Phys. Ed is keeping our bodies moving. We especially like the “Here, There, Where?” game, Freeze Dance, and Bubblegum. ELA has kept us busy with library time, Rebus chants, and story-acting. Story-Acting is a really cool time! Each morning I private conference with at least 2 students separately. They each come up with a story and I write it down (in their words).

They then cast their story characters with their classmates (they ask permission, of course). After they’ve cast their story, and drawn a picture to go along with it, they perform it for the class. It has been a lot of fun!

A Few Important Dates:

  • October 22 – Meet the Teacher Night/Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences (5:00-7:30PM)
  • October 23 – Parent-StudentTeacher Conferences continued (5:00-7:35PM)
  • October 31 – Kindergarten Halloween Party in the PM. Schoolwide costume parade starts at 1PM {parents/families are invited to watch the parade}
  • November 1 – NO Kindergarten (in lieu of October 31).

If you haven’t already, please call Carey in the office @ 544-2511 to book your conference time on either the 22nd or 23rd. I look forward to seeing you all!

Please feel free to contact me any time

Have a great October!
