The School Milk program came today to speak to us about healthy eating. And Good News! We get free milk! On Monday, April 16 everyone will receive free milk!

We had computer time this afternoon:

We practice all kinds of things during this time- math, letters, working together, explaining directions. In Kindergarten, computer time isn’t an isolation time, it’s a time for sharing and cooperating. It’s also a time we look forward to each Day 3.

This week:

Fundations letters went home yesterday. We’re working on x, y

Our sight word is WE

Our book is One Duck Stuck

In Math we are working on problem solving tasks to reinforce part/part/whole concepts. We are also constantly refreshing all of the other concepts we’ve worked on this year.

Last week we had some fun with colours and colour mixing and we created our own class rainbow:

Reminder that there are no classes on Friday due to a Provincial Professional Development Day.

Let’s enjoy the sunshine and the warmer temps! Let’s hope that the weather has finally turned for the better!

Two weeks until March Break- lots of time to get stuff done!

A few notes for the week ahead:

-This week is “French Week”, a time to celebrate French culture in PEI and in Canada. On Monday we will be wearing the colours of the Acadian flag- red, white, blue, and yellow!

-Friday is going to be our St. Patrick’s Day celebration. We’ll have some fun in the afternoon!

In math we will be digging deeper into the concepts of counting and part/part/whole.

In literacy we will continue with Fundations, we will have a new big book- “What’s the Weather Like Today”. New sight words will be like and look. Guided Reading will continue as usual. In writers workshop we’ve been looking at our “writing continuum” (I showed you parts of this during our parent teacher interviews), and finding where we are with our writing, and what our “next step” will be. I am amazed, not only at our self-reflection, but at how it is transforming our writing almost instantly. Your children are amazing, they really are!

I think that’s it for announcements. If you have any questions, please let me know!

Ms. Marshall

Hey everyone! Happy hump day- only two more wake-ups this week!

Just a few notes:

-Please make sure your child’s guided reading book comes back on Thursdays as we need to share these with other groups.

-Tomorrow we will be going to the school book fair at 9 AM. Those of you who sent in money today, we have set that aside for tomorrow. If you would like to send in money for your child, you have another day!

-Report cards go home tonight! Parent teacher interviews tomorrow night, so if you have any questions, please bring them along with you.

-Remember no school on Friday due to parent teacher interviews, and no school on TUESDAY due to a professional development day.

-Thank you all for practicing letters with your child at home. We have switched up our letter instruction and it’s been a shift for some of us. This extra practice at home is really showing in their work at school. So, again, Thank You!

Have a great rest of the week!

Ms. Marshall

Just a couple of notes for this short week-

No guided reading books went home due Monday’s holiday. But we are still reading in class!

Fundations is rolling along. You will notice that at the beginning of each week papers are sent home. These are great ways to practice our printing, and it might be helpful to your child to go over them a time or two each night.

We are looking forward to our muffins and juice with our families in the morning! There will be a gluten free option available as well.

I can’t believe February is almost over- it’s amazing how fast time goes once we get into January!

Here are some pictures we wanted to share with you!

Hey Parents!

You’ll notice in your child’s homework bags- their guided reading books have gone home! They’re very excited about this, and I am sure you are too. Please read the note that accompanies the book, and remember that the books are due back by¬†Thursday of each week.

Wednesday is our Valentines Party- we have a lot going on that day, so it will be busy!

Remember there is no school on Friday due to Professional Development. And there is no school on Monday as it is Islander Day.

Next Thursday, February 22 is a special morning. We are inviting you to come for muffins and juice from 8:30-9:30. It’s just a special way we want to honor our families.

Hello Parents! Here’s what’s happening this week in KD:

-I sent home class lists for Valentines Day. Please note we have two new students!

-Friday is wear Red day in honour of Chinese New Year. We will be having our assembly at 9:30 sharp!

-I have been spending time these past two weeks doing some assessing, getting ready for the next round of Learning Reports. Those will go home on February 28, with Parent/Teacher interviews on the evening of March 1 and all day March 2. I generally use the same times for these interviews as the fall ones. If you have a time you would rather meet, please let me know and we can arrange it.

-Guided Reading has been “in house” since January. Beginning next week I will begin sending books home. More information about that will go home with the books.

-I hope you have all seen and used the Fundations notes that are sent home each week. These notes are very important as they inform you of what we are learning in class and how you can best support your child.

-We have been reading the book Polar Bear Polar Bear What Do You Hear by Eric Carle. Now we are moving on to a series of books about a penguin named Tacky. I am sure you’ll be hearing lots of stories about in the next few weeks!

-For our sight words we will be adding yes, no, and love.

-In Math we are looking at the numbers 7 and 8

I think this about covers it! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!

Ms. Marshall

Thinking about the number 6

Creative development in action!
