100 days Smarter: Our 100 days of kindergarten is this week! Thank you, Lord, for blessing us with a wonderful 100 days of school! We did some fun activities to celebrate this day.
Identity: Thank you for creating the float with your child. They look awesome! We have been sharing with each other what we would like to be when we grow up.
Bible: The students have continued learning about Joseph’s life. We are learning that God was always with Joseph and how He turned some very difficult things that happened in Joseph’s life into blessings. We have started watching the movie called “Joseph: King of Dreams”.
Literacy: I am really pleased with how many students are willing to try sounding out their words as they write down their thoughts. I am encouraging them to say the word very slowly and write down whatever letters they hear. I am not looking for perfect spelling. I pray we will continue to learn and grow in this area!
Our car parade will be on Tuesday, February 25th at 8:30AM. We will be “driving” around the inside hallways for the other classes to see. You are welcome to stay at school that morning to take pictures!
Student-Led Conferences: will be on Thursday, February 27th. Conferences will be 30 minutes long. This is an important event for you and your child’s relationship demonstrating your loving care and attention to your child’s learning. It allows your child the opportunity to teach you, which helps him/her gain a deeper understanding and solidify him/her learning, and to provide insight into your child’s days at school. Thanks for partnering in and for your child’s education. I will send you a list of our stations and questions to guide your child along.
Phone number: To wrap up our Identity unit, students will be learning about personal safety. This includes knowing some personal information about him/herself, such as your phone number, so that s/he is equipped to self-advocate. This week, please provide the phone number (just 1, please) that you’d like your child to memorize. I will leave a post-it notepad on the whiteboard for this purpose.
Community helper: We continue our identity theme by learning more about ourselves and others. If you are interested in sharing with our class about your job, please email me and we can setup a time.
- For students to continue learning and growing in the interpersonal and personal skills to help them have success in a school environment.
- For safety during this wild winter weather we’ve been having.
