Sunday, September 3rd: Mateo’s 6th Birthday!
Monday, September 4th: Labor Day– No School!
Kindergarten Homework begins this week! On some days, there will be letter writing practice. Feel free to use fun things to write with—pens, markers, colored pencils, chalk, etc.! Other days, you will simply need to read together with your child. The reading logs are for you to write down what books you read together.
Homework is not required, but it is encouraged. Homework is always due on Friday!
This week, we will begin learning our rainbow sight words. A letter will go home about this on Monday. The first 10 words are red words!
We have snack time every day around 3:00pm. Please try to send a snack with your child because I do not always have extra snacks. Please try to send nutritious snacks if possible. If you would like to send in snacks for the whole class, you are more than welcome! Thank you!
Please remember to send a complete change of clothes for your child! 🙂
Please remember to have your child wear tennis shoes on Wednesdays for P.E.!
Fundations & Star Students
Fundations is a phonics program at Bowling Green Elementary School. In Kindergarten, it provides systematic, daily instruction on skills such as: letters/ letter sounds, handwriting, comprehension skills, phonics/ word study, vocabulary, and spelling. This week, we will learn the letters/ sounds for M & N. We will also begin working on handwriting and comprehension skills.
We also spend part of our reading block on Star Student activities for the first 5 weeks of school. Each day, I randomly choose a child’s name out of a bag. That student is the Star Student of the day. We learn the Star Student’s name by doing a “name cheer”, making the name with magnetic letters, writing the name, and drawing detailed pictures of the Star Student. Every child will have the opportunity to be the Star Student!
