September 8-12 September 7, 2014

Our first full week of Kindergarten! Such excitement, much wow (as my daughter in university would say). I don’t know if your children were tired on Friday, but I can say with no loss of pride that I was in bed and asleep by 8:00! Hopefully we are all caught up on our sleep because we’re going to need it!

Here’s what’s in store for our class this week:
-Our Big Book of the week will be “Corduroy”.

-We will be reviewing basic alphabet knowledge for this month. Before school started I took down my ABC lines and my Number lines. We are, as a class, going to create our own this year. I firmly believe that if the class hasn’t participated in making something it becomes irrelevant to them. So everything that goes on our wall will be created either individually or as a class.

-We will be making a nature number line for numbers 1-5. I am planning on going on a nature walk around the school to gather items we can use for this.

-For the month of September we will be all about learning the routines of the school and of the class as well as emphasizing what it means to work together and be good friends, that is one reason I chose Corduroy for our class book this week.

Meet the Teacher night is September 11 at 6:30 pm. Please come and meet the other parents in the class as well as learn a little more about your child’s day.

Here’s to a great week!
Mrs. Marshall

 

New School Year! September 4, 2014

Hello and welcome to Kindergarten!

Today was a great day to get to know each other and learn some new routines. Tomorrow will begin a more typical structured kindergarten day. Lots of fun and lots of learning!

For the beginning of the year we are focusing on routines and getting to know each other.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, either by e-mail, notes, or a phone call.

Here’s to an exciting year of learning and fun!

Last Few Days of School June 23, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 2:56 pm

I can hardly believe that this is the last few days of school. What a great year it has been. I am so excited for your children as they are so ready for Grade 1! I wanted to let you know about the last day of school on Wednesday.

The class would like to have a party, so if any of you are interested in sending in a treat, please feel free. But also, PLEASE DO NOT FEEL OBLIGATED! I know it is a crazy, busy time of year for many people!

Also, they said they would like to have a costume dress up day that day. I told them that it was up to their parents. So, if you don’t mind, and your child wants to, they can wear a dress-up outfit that day. I can tell you not everyone wants to participate in this, so it is totally OK if you or your child are not interested in doing this.

On the last day of school I will be sending home a portfolio of your child’s work throughout the year. Inside the bag will also be the report card. I hope you will take the time to go through this with your child and celebrate the growth they have demonstrated since September. I think you will be impressed at how much they have grown and changed in this short time.

Have a great week, and thank you all for the opportunity to teach your child in their first year of school. It has truly been  my honour and pleasure!

Our Field Trip June 19, 2014

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 11:32 pm

There is only one thing to tell you about what we did on our field trip today. We RAN! We ran, and we ran, and we ran, and we ran. If your child went to bed and fell asleep like a rock, it is because they ran non-stop from the time we entered Avonlea Village until the time we left. And then we talked the WHOLE way back to school!

So, I guess you could say the trip was a success! Here are some of our favourite things:
The wagon ride

The animals

When Anne broke the slate over Gilbert’s head

The play

RUNNING!

No one said it, but it was sure fun to watch them in the school room. It was interesting to see who wanted to be the teacher, who wanted to be the student, and what they thought “school’ was all about (sitting in desks, writing with chalk on the slates, ‘reading’ books.”

Here are some photos from the day:

Thanks to the mothers who could make it today! 

It has been a great year, and what a great way to finish up! Looking forward to the next 4 days!
