It’s hard to believe that it’s the last week of September. Where did the time go? And isn’t it funny how the day summer turned to autumn, the temperatures dropped 10 degrees? I guess we can’t deny it any longer… Summer is finally over.

Here’s what is up for this week:

We’re beginning a study of our five senses. There will be some fun activities to go along with this!

In math we will continue to look at different ways to count

In literacy we will continue with our alphabet review. Our sight words are See and Can. We will stick with just these two for another week before we add a new word.

We have been enjoying a weekly nature walk, and I hope to continue with that this week. We usually go sometime on Fridays, depending on our schedule.

On Friday afternoon we will be participating in our schools Terry Fox run/walk. If you are interested in contributing a loonie or a toonie, please do so.

There are a lot of fun things to do this week, I look forward to it!

Some pictures from our week. We really enjoyed experimenting with colour!

Have a great week, and as always, if you have any concerns, please let me know!

It was great to see all of you out to Meet the Staff last Thursday evening. It’s always nice to put faces to names. For those who couldn’t make it, if you would like me to e-mail you a copy of the power point, please let me know and I will get that to you on Monday.

We’ve been having fun last week learning about numbers 1-5. We’ve finished our number line and this week we will begin our focus on different ways to count.

Here we are with “2”

In Language Arts we’ve begun introducing sight words. Our first word is “can”. We will keep that word for this next week, and will be adding the word “see”. For our Big Book we will be reading Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?   We will continue working on our class alphabet.

On Friday we went for a nature walk. I would like to do this at least once a week, weather permitting. The plan is to go on Fridays (or whatever the last school day of the week is). This week we noticed some mushrooms in the bushes

Hello Parents! Welcome to Kindergarten, and welcome to the next phase of you and your child’s life! It’s an exciting time for everyone, and sometimes excitement brings about anxiety, so this is your daily reminder to stop, take a few breaths, and enjoy!

We have had a great week getting to know each other and our daily routines. We have begun our “general alphabet review”- which means we are creating our own alphabet line, adding one letter a day, learning about letter sounds, and the difference between a letter a number and a word.  Once we finish the alphabet line, (by the middle of October), we will begin to spend more time on each individual letter.

We will also be working on our own number line beginning this week. We will focus on numbers 1-5 from now until November, particularly the concepts of more and fewer/less, sorting, counting, and subitizing (recognizing an amount at a glance).

For this week coming, we will go over the letters E-I, and will be learning about the difference between a letter, a number, and a word. In math we will create that number line and begin to talk about more and fewer/less.

I look forward to seeing you all on Thursday at Meet the Staff night. It’s 6:30 for Kindergarten and Grade 1; 7:15 for Grades 2 and 3. I have a lot of information to share with you that will be unique to our class, so I hope to see you all out!

If you haven’t subscribed to this blog, please do so! If you want to know what is happening in your child’s day, this will be the number one spot to go to! Also, please fill out and return any forms that may still be outstanding.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know! E-mail is the easiest way to get ahold of me, and if you would like to speak with me, you can either e-mail and let me know, or phone the school between 2:40 and 3:30.

Have a great week! See you Thursday!

Mrs. Marshall

Exploring soil and planting seeds

Exploring 3D shapes and putting that knowledge into practice

Learning about the properties of sand and how it flows. Using that knowledge in our sand play.

Practicing our letters and writing and using that to create signs to find a lost cat. Using descriptors to write a poem about a June Bug (hint: we wrote the poem today- I’ll post it next week)

We continue with our writing and our reading. We are also in the process of writing a poem about June Bugs (yes.. I know…)

In Math we will begin our unit on measurement. We enjoyed our unit on 3 D shapes, and by now we know a sphere, a cylinder, a cube, a cone, a prism, and a pyramid.

I want to remind you that if you haven’t paid your school fees for next year those are past due.

Our field trip is scheduled for June 16 with a rain date of June 17. We will be going to Kings Castle for the day. Should be a fun day!

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know!
