October 10th – 14th

This week, we led our first assembly with our buddies. They did a wonderful job leading with our thanksgiving prayer. It was a great practice for when we lead school Mass in November. We had our first visit with Father Felix and he talked to us about Thanksgiving and answered some of our questions! We are so thankful for all the wonderful students and supportive families in Kindergarten! We wish you all a happy and blessed Thanksgiving!

With Thanksgiving coming up, the students brainstormed and discussed all of the things they are thankful for. We hope you enjoy the lovely card they made for you!

Student of the Week and Show & Tell

  1. Student of the Week If you child is student of the week, please take the time to document their week by taking pictures (swimming/piano/violin/karate lessons, playing games/toys at home, family outings, etc.) and helping them as much as needed with their writing. Your child will have two activities throughout the week. The poster template and journal book will be provided when your child is student of the week. Please bring them back to school, the following Monday.
    •   Poster: Please help your child fill out their “All About Me” poster. This includes answering some questions and printing out some pictures so that the class can get to know your child (Miss Guevara’s, Miss Maye’s and Ms. Moorehead’s sample posters can be found on Class Dojo!).
    •   Journal: Each child has 1 week to show their classmate what a typical week looks like in their home by documenting their week with their Fin (sample will be sent home for reference).
  2. Show & Tell – If it’s your child’s day to Show & Tell, please help them pick an item from home that fits within our theme of the week. Please also ensure they are sending the item on their specified day and help them practice telling 3 clues about their Show & Tell (Ex. Basketball 1) orange  2) bounces  3) throw it into a hoop)

Friendly Reminders:

  1. Homework folders– These will continue to be sent home every day. Please check the folders daily and send them back to school every day as your child is expected to hand them in each morning.
  2. My Reading” book (yellow duotang)– Please continue 10 to 15 minutes of daily reading (reading book, library books, home books, etc.) with your child and place this book inside your child’s homework folder everyday
  3. My Read Well” book (red duotang)– Please continue to review the letter of the week and use the “Parent Prompt” questions (found on the bottom of the page) with your child.
    • If you notice that your child has not finished the back of their Letter Record page in class, please brainstorm with them three words that begin with that letter. Then, have them write down the three words on the dotted lines and draw their corresponding pictures in the blank box.
  4. Learning Conferences – Appointment bookings open on Saturday, October 15th.  See information that was sent home this past week.
