September 27

Hi room 1 families!
 

Can you even believe this is that last weekend of September? Some days I feel like we’ve been in school forever, and others I feel like it was just summer break! We are continuing to practice and strengthen our classroom routines.

In reading, we started to use book bags at school. We will be reading our paper books over and over again and trying to recognize some of the words! Our sight words this week are from our poem, “A Little Apple Seed.”

We are continuing our unit on storytelling in Writers Workshop. Sometimes, it can be hard for students to think about a story to tell and write. The kids are working on drawing and labeling pictures across three pages to tell a simple story.

Lastly, I sent out a link for fall conferences. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you can’t find anything that works. I’m super-flexible and know we can find a time to meet :-)

Next Week:
Star share- Musa, Robbie, Ryan, Valentina
Sight words- is, see
We will also starts to talk about apples and the color words.

Way Up High
Way up high in the apple tree,
All the little apples smiled at me.
I shook that tree as hard as I could
Down came the apples,
M-M-M good!

 
If you weren't able to make it to curriculum night last night we will be putting up the PPT on the main kindergarten website. Feel free to check it out and email me with any questions. 
 
Mark Your Calendar- The FUN RUN is going to be October 30th. Parents are invited to the back field to watch their child run. Each grade level runs at different times. I will let you know when we are running! It's an awesome day :-)
 
Have a wonderful weekend!
