Weekly News: November 19-22




There is no school on Monday, November 18th due to parent conferences. Enjoy the three day weekend with your families and I will see you at your parent conference on Monday!


We are so excited for our feast this Friday! We will be making special things in class all week long while we are getting ready for our Feast and learning all about the First Thanksgiving. Remember that if you'd like to join us, our feast will be down on the playground on Friday at 12:15 - please plan on meeting down there at 11:45 if you are able to help set up. 

Mark your calendars now!  We will be having our very own special kindergarten play, "The Tale of the Gingerbread Man" on the evening of Thursday, December 19th. MUCH MORE information to come, but I know December is a busy month and you do not want to miss this, so mark your calendars now! We have already started learning all of the songs and we will have "auditions" this week. Each student will have a very special role in our play. On Thursday before we leave for break, we will be sending home lyrics and/or scripts and CDs so that you can start practicing over break. Have fun! 


I am placing our holiday Scholastic Book Order on Friday! Don't forget to get your orders in - books make great gifts for the holidays! 


THERE IS NO SCHOOL ALL OF NEXT WEEK! Enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with your families!


What Are We Learning This Week:

This week, we will have fun reading and writing about Thanksgiving and playing Thanksgiving games. We will review everything we have learned so far in kindergarten. There will be no new fluencies and no new leveled readers coming home, but we will still be taking book bags home to read. Inside your book bag this week, you will find two fun Thanksgiving books we are working on in class.We will continue to study pilgrims and indians and work on fun Thanksgiving projects! There will be no new sight words or letter teams until after break and no new QR codes posted. Please take this time to review ALL of our first trimester sight words and letter teams.  Don't forget that you can still log on to Smarty Ants and Dreambox over break!
