September 26th-30th

This week, we had a very fun-filled start to full-day Kindergarten! The students all had a great time getting to meet and play with their new friends! The children are continuing to settle nicely into the routines of the classroom and have been showing a strong understanding of our Kindergarten rules.

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)
