Hi Parents! Another busy, full week of kindergarten. Here’s what’s up:

In literacy we will be finishing off our ABC line (finally!!), and will be working on printing the letter D. To refresh, we have covered F,E, and now D if you’d like to be working on letter recognition/printing at home.

We will be reading the book, Pumpkin, Pumpkin, and will have some pumpkin poems and stories to go along with this.

We are focusing on using the pictures to help us read the story, and pointing to the words we read. As always, we are looking for any sight words in our books as well. To refresh the sight words: can, see, do, my. We will be adding the word *and* to our list.

In math we are working on creating groups and counting to determine the number in a group.

Have a  great week!

Mrs. Marshall

Hi Parents,

It’s a quick week ahead of us. Remember there are only 3 days of school as Thursday and Friday are set aside for the PEITF conference.

This week we will be reading the book, “See What I Can Do”

We will be covering the letter E for printing, and V,W,X for our alphabet line

In Math we will be working on the concept of counting and creating sets

We have begun “Storytelling” and that will continue this week.

I have a few pictures from last week. We had a great time using our Five Senses to investigate apples with taste tests and making apple sauce. We will be comparing apples and pumpkins this week, and next we will be investigating pumpkins.

The school is having a food drive! Please, if you would like to, send in any non-perishable goods and we will add them to the collection!

Have a great week!


Making Applesauce


Using story cubes to create a class story. This was so much fun, we will definitely be doing this again!

Sorry for the late update this week! Just a reminder that there is no school on Friday due to a Professional Development Day, and none on Monday because of Thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoy the long weekend!

This week we are talking about our Five Senses, we are covering the letters N, O, P, Q. In Math we are focusing on the concepts of more, fewer/less, and same as/equal too.

We will also be doing fall activities that use our five senses, such as making applesauce and having apple taste tests.\

Before I sign off I want to remind you to check your child’s backpack each night, and if their homework bag is in there make sure you check that as well. Some important notes are being missed! Thanks!


Here are some of our co-constructed classroom expectations. We worked on this together to remind us what we need to do as a class.


Here we are using the hopscotch mat to practice our numeral recognition as well as one to one correspondence.

It’s the second full week of school, and we’re already coming in to class like we’ve been doing this all year. We have a busy week ahead, here’s what’s up:

In literacy and science we are learning about colours. We will be reading the big book, “Do You See Colours?” and we will be focusing on the sight word ‘see’. We will be learning about primary and secondary colors and having some fun science experiments to go along with it!

We will continue creating our alphabet line with the letters G,H,I,J, and K.

In math we will be talking about counting and all of the different ways to count.

Have a great week! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns,

Welcome to KD! September 11, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 1:59 am

I am very excited to welcome you all to Kindergarten and to KD. I think we are going to have a great year and I look forward to working with you all and your children. We have already had two great days, and I believe that we will hit the ground running on Monday.

This week we will work on our number line as well as our ABC line with numbers 2-6 and letters B-F. We are taking a number/letter of the day and creating our own lines with these. I believe it’s best to do these with the children as it gives them meaning and the children understand why they are up on the wall.

We will be reading the book Corduroy and talking about what it means to be a friend, and we will work together to create our “Classroom Norms”- what our responsibilities are as members of our classroom community.

I hope to see you all at Meet the Teacher, we have a lot to talk about!

Mrs. Marshall


2 DAYS LEFT OF SCHOOL! June 27, 2017

Filed under: Uncategorized — mrsmarshallkd @ 1:00 am

It’s hard to believe but your child is just two days short of completing Kindergarten! Can you believe it? It seems like just a week ago they were coming in all bright eyed and excited about the new year. Now, they are old hands. It’s a bittersweet time for sure!

Just a few notes about these last two days:

Tuesday morning is our Field Day. We spend the morning, before recess, outside playing some fun games and relays. It’s always a fun morning. We’ll come in and have a regular rest of the day.

Wednesday is the last day of school. Report Cards will be going home this day. We will have a fun day, and we’ve all been talking about maybe a movie in the afternoon. If anyone wants to send in some treats, you are more than welcome to, but please do not feel obligated!

We had some fun with musical instruments this year, and telling stories with music. Today we recorded ourselves telling a couple of stories, and tomorrow we will record ourselves with some songs. My plan is to load them onto a powerpoint (that seems to be the easiest way to transfer videos and audios). I will share them via e-mail with all of you.


I can’t wait to find out the story of this block! Whatever it is, it certainly looks intense! I wonder what that poor guy did to be put behind bars!


And just as we were getting ready to go home, the dumpster came right outside our window! Of course we had to watch to see what they would do with it. The hydraulics were our favourite part, by the way!


It has been a pleasure working with your children and you this year. Please enjoy your summer, and please take time to do absolutely nothing but play!

Mrs. Marshall
