Kindergarten News September 16, 2013
What we will do this week:
We will learn about constitution day this week.  We will continue talking about living and non-living things.  We planted grass seed last week, we will make sure we know what the seed needs to grow and live.  Friday is a casual dress day.  This is a day kids can wear what they want!  We have dress down days to raise money for various causes.  The cost to dress “down” is $1.  Please send in a $1 on Friday if your child is not wearing dress code clothing.  Friday is also 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 the fall into sin this week.  We will learn that God loves us even when we do things wrong.  We will learn that it is good to tell God what we have done wrong and ask for forgiveness.    
In Math we will make a pictograph of our class we will use the words more and less to describe our graph.  We will practice reading a graph.  We will count to 5 with one-to-one correspondence.  We will explore using teddy bears, pattern blocks, and linking cubes.
We will begin a new journal.  We will spend time everyday writing and drawing.  The journal will come home at the end of the month.    
In Spelling and phonics we will continue working with the letter Ll.  Our next letter is Oo.  We will use a picture of an octopus to remember the short sound for /o/. We will learn what a breve is.  We will practice rhyming words.
We have gym class on Monday’s and Thursdays, and Fridays.  Please make sure your child has gym shoes!
You may turn in all school paperwork and snack/party funds ($20 total) to me or to the office.
Volunteers are need especially for the following times:
Mondays- ART 9:45-10:15

If you are interested in volunteering for one of these times, please send me an email.  Thank you!
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.
Homework – due next Monday in red tray by desk.
Letter O and o.  Remind your child to start at the top, curve to the right and circle around.  
Memory work – help your child to remember this verse.  I will ask him/her to say it to me Friday.
