Oct. 9th through Oct. 13th

Dear Families,

Remember that both Morning and Afternoon Kindergarten will be attending school from 8:30 to 12:00 on Monday October 16th for our field trip to Black Island Farms. Please make sure that your child is dress warm enough for the weather. We will be going on a wagon ride so it could get chilly. Also, your student will not need a backpack. Please keep backpacks at home. We have all of the parent volunteers that we need for this field trip. Thank you to everyone who was willing to attend. We will have another field trip where we will try to take different parents.

This week in class we have been learning the letters Ff and Ee, the sounds the letters make, and how to write both the capital and lowercase of each letter correctly. We are working on the sight words to and is.
In math we are working on numbers 1 -10. We are working on writing each number and counting objects to that number.

Part of kindergarten is learning the rules. Three rules we are working hard on are keeping our hands and feet to ourselves, following directions the first time given, and learning to use our words to stop problems.

As homework:  Please read 20 minutes every night (each student should have an October reading log. Please mark the books you or your child are reading on this log). Please also work on recognizing letters Cc, Gg, Oo, Aa, Dd, Ss, Ll, Ff, and Ee and producing the sounds for each. In math please work on counting and writing numbers 1- 10.
 Please continue to work on spelling and writing your students first names correctly (capital letter at the beginning and the rest of the letters lowercase).


A few other things, Your student is now able to check out and bring home a library book. Please find a safe place to keep these books. Library books are due back to the library every Friday that we have school. Your student is responsible for the library book that they bring home if books are not brought back you will receive a late slip notice from the library.
