This Week In Kindergarten
September 22 - September 26
This week we will learn more about our newest SuperKid, Oswald. Through the parent portal you should be able to now access Cass' song and library book and Oswald's library book. Oswald is interested in odd animals and loves art projects! He will be helping us learn about the letter Oo and the short /o/ sound. During our daily routine, we are continuing to focus on identifying and naming rhyming words as well as identifying how many syllables are in words.
This week during math we will be working on Topic 2: Comparing and Ordering 0-5. We will continue to practice patterns and identify both pattern units (the part of the patterns that repeats) and missing parts of patterns.
In religion we will be continuing to work on illustrating our own God Created The World book. The class is learning about each day of creation and will be bringing their books home next week to share! Grades 1-8 will be attending mass this Friday. Kindergarten's first mass will be on October 10th. Our older buddies (4th and 8th) will be choosing buddies this week and we will be working to set up a time for buddies to meet and get to know one another before we attend mass in October.
We are continuing to work on our Community Helpers unit in social studies. This week we will focus on community helpers that keep us safe.
Notes & Announcements:
Behavior Notes: As a class we have spent the first two weeks of school learning the routines and procedures of the classroom as well as the rest of the school. We are now moving into the "practice" stage. The two things that take lots of practice each year are: keeping self-to-self and following directions the first time given. Your child will be given prompting and reminders as needed throughout the school day but talking about the rules/procedures of the classroom at home can be very helpful too. Please refer to the behavior system hand out that was in your "Welcome to Kindergarten" packet for specifics on our class behavior system and check your child's folder daily for an update on how their day went. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Parent Conferences: We will be having parent-teacher conferences on Friday, October 17th. Information will be coming home via communication from the office as we move closer to that date. During these conferences I quickly review your child's social/academic/behavior progress in Kindergarten to this point. I will also have information about the Primary Team (PK-2) service project for the year and the Kindergarten report card which will go home in early December.
Please let me know if you have any questions regarding the above information. Have a wonderful week!!
Happy Playing, Laughing & Learning
