Weekly News: November 28-December 2


Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving week off with your families. I am so excited to be back at school. This is such a fun, yet busy time of the year in kindergarten with so much going on. Please take a moment to read through our news and upcoming events so that you don't miss out on anything. Thank you!

Our kindergarten classes are doing a Christmas play this year! I'm sure you have heard all about it! We will be putting on "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man". We started rehearsals before Thanksgiving break and our kiddos are having so much fun learning all of the songs and hand motions. Every student should have received his or her special role in the play, along with a script and CD before break. Our kindergarten classes will be doing two performances in the evening (so that hopefully all moms and dads can attend) on Thursday, December 15th. Mrs. Marion and Mrs. Bobrink's classes will perform at 6:00 and Mrs. Bess and Mrs. Stanley's classes will perform at 6:45. Please mark your calendars now. This is an event you will not want to miss! We will give more information about costumes, help, and times to be there as it gets closer. 


Upcoming Events: 
Monday, December 12: Grandparent's Day (more info coming soon!)
Thursday, December 15: "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man" 6:45
Friday, December 16: Christmas Centers (more info coming soon!)

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: AS, NO, KNOW, ABOUT, BY.

Letter Team:  KN (the K is silent, like in KNOW and KNIGHT), and EW (like in NEW and STEW).

Reading: We are reading a variety of books about the Gingerbread Man this week. We are also learning about landforms (mountains, valleys, deserts, and plains) and bodies of water (rivers, oceans, lakes, and ponds). We will begin taking home leveled Reading A to Z books and continue taking home library books in our book bags this week. Students will begin taking home fluency passages this week. Please read the note about fluency passages in your child's book bag this week and practice reading these sheets every night at home, sending them back to school every day in your book bag. 

Writing: We will continue to work on our writing goals as we strive to write three to five sentences every day. Some students will be writing topic sentences, three details, and a conclusion sentence. 

Math: This week we will learn addition "DOUBLES" in our fun DOUBLES SONG. You can help at home by asking your child doubles addition questions (2+2, 7+7, 10+10, etc.) We will start working on fun Christmas story problems and playing fun addition games. 

Leadership: Don't forget to ROAR everyday to keep earning those ROAR tickets!
