Monday Letter 9-26-22

Dear Kindergarten Parents,

Happy Monday to you all.  I hope you all got to spend some time at Westfest this weekend, and if you volunteered- THANK YOU. Our magazine sale is in full swing. Please be sure to help your child sell at least 1 magazine so they feel a part of the schoolwide effort. And picture day is tomorrow. Children may wear free dress, just be sure they have clothes and shoes on that will work for PE and recess. I believe all of the ordering information is in the EFC.

Kindergarten reminders:

  • M/T : PE shoes
  • T : picture day and library books
  • W: mass perfect uniform
  • Sell those magazines

Curriculum:

LA:  Our theme is School Rules. Skills taught include identifying beginning sounds, antonyms, nouns for places, predicting as we read, and using interesting words when we write. The new sight words- like, it new phonograms: qu-v

Math: We continue to work on number concept focusing on equal to, greater than, less than and draw a diagram as a problem solving strategy. Please remember to help your child get onto the Happy Numbers site for leveled practice.

Religion: This week’s scripture story tells us the Holy Spirit is always with us and helps us.

Science: Fall- changing of the seasons

Second Step: mistakes are okay

Looking forward to a great week!

Mrs. Clarke
