We are learning and having fun...

WOW!!! We are having so much fun learning in kindergarten this year! I have a great group of children who are eager to learn and listen :-). We have been making graphs every day in class and comparing our findings. Some things we have graphed are muffins, dogs, gardens and ice creams. Today we found out that most of the children in our class like chocolate ice cream. We also found out that chocolate ice cream and orange sherbet are our classroom favorites. Today we also learned the words "solar" and made solar bracelets with solar beads. Ask your child about them.

Some things you can do to have fun and practice skills: *Talk with your child about colors and activities that your family is involve in. *Use sidewalk chalk *You can use a dry erase marker on the mirror and it will wipe off (just watch closely, you don’t want marks on the counter or walls) *While shopping, point out letters and numbers or quiz your child as you walk the aisles. For example, “I see an A, can you find one?” *Have your child find letters and numbers in magazines or the newspaper. Draw colorful circles around those, or cut them out and make a collage. *During bath time, use foam letters and numbers. They stick to the side of the tub for extra fun. *Your child is a sponge right now and eager to learn everything!!! Make learning fun :-)

100th Day of School

We will be celebrating the 100th day of school. Can you believe that your child has been in Kindergarten for 100 days already?? Wow, and to think your child is 100 days SMARTER!!!! Your child may bring in 100 small items to show to the class. Please be sure that your child brings these items in a bag and that they can carry them into the school. Your child may also dress up like they are 100 years old. We will be counting to 100 and doing counting to 100 activities. If your child cannot count to 100 yet, this is a skill you need to work on at home. We count to 100 daily in class by 1's, 5's and 10's. This has been a great month and we are learning so much. Continue to watch the weekly newsletter for updates. :-)
