Kindergarten News September 30, 2013
What we will do this week:
Please send in a plastic grocery bag this week, so that our rest time blankets can go in them to go home and get washed.
Grass is growing!  We will keep track of growth and cups of grass will go home on Friday.
Friday is Popsicle day in the cafeteria.  Kids may purchase an ice-cream treat if they eat their lunch for $1.
Thank you so much for volunteering to help in our classroom and school!
The weather is getting cooler- please make sure your child has a jacket with his/her name on it to wear for recess.
 Please make sure you are removing things out of your child’s backpack and green folder daily.  You will receive this news in your child’s green folder each week.  You may also find my weekly news and other information on my blog.
We will learn about Moses leading God’s people out of Egypt.
Last week we read the book “Hands are not for hitting” we made a list of things hands are for.  Please discuss the good things our hands are used for!  We also talked about an automatic clip move if hitting occurs in our classroom.        
In Math we will use positional words: over, under, on top of, behind, in back of, in front of, and beside.  We will count to 10 with one-to-one correspondence.  We will use pattern blocks to cover designs, and we will sort by color.
We will begin our October journal.  Look for it to come home in a few weeks.
An October reading log will come home today, please turn it in at the end of the month for a Pizza Hut pizza coupon!    
In Spelling and phonics we will continue working with the letter l and o and g.  We will be able to spell the work log! We will practice rhyming words and compound words.  Our next letter is Hh.  We will also work on naming beginning sounds of words.    
Some children do not have gym shoes; please make sure your child has gym shoes to leave at school.
You may turn in all school paperwork and snack/party funds ($20 total) to me or to the office.

Please work with your child at home on writing their name using capital first letter and lower case for the rest.  We will be working on this in class as well.

Memory work – help your child to remember this verse.  I will ask him/her to say it to me Friday.  
God cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
Would you like to make play dough for our classroom?  I have an easy recipe from our childcare center.
I will begin inviting parents into the classroom to help with skills and projects- thank you for volunteering your time.
