Hello parents! It’s hard to believe that September is almost over, school seems to have just started and we’re going into our second month! Crazy! We have had a great first month, and we all seem to be settling into our routines quite well. Here’s what’s happening this week:
Monday is Day 6. Library will be on Thursday (Day 3), please remind your child to return their library book by that day.
We are learning about our 5 Senses and will be doing some activities around our sense of touch. We will be reading the big book, “My 5 Senses” during our Shared Reading Time. In math we will be talking about more, fewer, and the same as.
We will begin our letter work this week, focussing on the letter F. We will also begin our sight word work, learning the word “can”. It’s always exciting when we begin this phase in kindergarten, because so much of what we are doing is laying the foundation for our writing and reading.
Our classroom arrangement continues to evolve, and I am re-vamping our sand table/science area. I am excited to see how it turns out. I am hoping it will reflect our Island beaches a bit more so I am including rocks and driftwood. I am also bringing in some starfish that I found at the beach. It will be interesting to observe them over the next few days.
Here’s what else is happening this week:
Tuesday- Class pictures. If you haven’t returned the picture form, please make sure it comes back by Tuesday. If there is no form, the photographers will choose the pose for your child.
Wednesday- FIELD TRIP! We are leaving by 9:00 and will be returning before lunch. We will be having our snack at the park.
Friday- The annual Terry Fox walk/run. Kindergarten will be participating in this at 1:55. We will be walking on the path that goes around the front playground.
Last week our Artist in Residence was in the classroom to give us a great introduction to dance. I will try to post some of the photo’s later this week. We are looking forward to her coming again and introduce us to some more dances.
Here’s to a great week!
