Weekly Update 3/23

This week our Star Students is Bodhi!  We look forward to seeing his Star Student poster and learning more about him!

This week we are reviewing the letter/sound Hh.  Please bring sharing that begins with this letter, if possible.

As mentioned in the special VIP, Mrs. Glasgo and Mrs. Vazquez (and other teachers) will only be checking and responding to emails during contracted work hours.  We will do our best to get back to you, but delayed email responses may be unavoidable.  Thank you for your understanding.

We need your child's 2 photos this week!  Please bring in 2 4x6 pictures of your child for a project we are doing- one baby picture and one current pictures.  Please LABEL the backs with your child's name.  These pictures will not be returned.  There is an envelope on the parent board in the classroom in which to place your child's photos. 

In Math we will begin working on subtraction.  Students will be learning how to subtract simple numbers using small objects/counters.

In Writing Workshop, we will continue with our non-fiction unit.  This week our focus will be on jellyfish and other ocean animals.  Please continue to work with your child at home on sounding out words in their writing.  It is very important that your child write often (and practice sounding out tricky words) to improve skills.

We are finishing up our ocean study this week and will be moving into our Eggs to Chicks study after that.  This is a very exciting time in kindergarten because we will be learning about chicks and hatching chicks in our very own classroom!

This Week-
Monday- Psychomotor (volunteer needed) 8:35-9:15am
Tuesday- Library 9:30-10:00
Wednesday- Learning Video
Thursday- Computers- laptops in classroom (additional volunteer needed)
Friday- Music, Spring Music Performance Tonight!!!
