Kindergarten At Work

We have been working hard in Kindergarten! Your child will be bringing reading books home daily. Please read with your child each night, write down the book they read, initial their reading calendar, and return the next day. They will receive a free personal pan pizza coupon from Pizza Hut at the end of each month for reading. During our Reading lesson will be learning about main characters and the setting of the story. Please continue working on their sight words at home also. So far we have learned AM, CAN, I, LIKE, SEE, WE, GO, AT, ME, ON, & THE. We will be working on color words this week. In Math we will be discussing and comparing measurements and also continue working with numbers. This week in writing we will continue talking about punctuation and capitalization. They are doing a super job!


Wow! I can’t believe it’s already September. We are off to a great start in Kindergarten. The kids have been working so hard to learn and follow the rules. We have had fun with the Gingerbread Man and Pete the Cat. Last week we started learning our sight words, can & I. Our words we are focusing on this week are like & am. We will introduce new sight words each week. Your child will have a baggie tomorrow with their sight words and also a note inside that will help explain how you can help your child at home. Your chid will be responsible for reading and writing all of their sight words. This will help them to be more successful in Reading and Writing. Thanks for all your help at home!


I hope everyone had a great summer. I am going to miss my students from last year, but I am very excited to start a new year and meet my new ones. I hope to see each of you at “Meet the Teacher” on Tuesday from 4:00-5:00. Please come even if you do not have school supplies yet, I will have important paperwork for the parents to complete. First day of school is Thursday, August 16. I am looking forward to an awesome year!


On April 10 & 11 the Intermediate students will be testing. No visitors are allowed in the building and no outside lunches will be accepted on these days.
