It was another wonderful week in room 431! I loved seeing your students' jobs poster presentation! They did a great job!
This week we'll be studying the letter Hh and its sound. We'll also learn a new sight word my. We'll also study several gingerbread stories and continuing our study of the holidays. We will be having Holiday Stations on Friday, December 19th @ 12:15. We will not be having a program, but I am asking for around 3-4 parents who would like to help with our festive stations. I am also asking for some donations for the activities at the stations. Thanks in advance for all that you do!
Accelerated Reader: When your child brings home a book, please read the book at least 3 times. Ask your child questions about what you read together. If you feel as though your child is ready to take an AR quiz on the book, please write a note in your child's agenda planner with the complete title and author or the quiz number. We will give your child the test in school and let you know how your student scored. Remember, Kindergarten's goal is 15 points and 80% comprehension. If you'd like to find out if books you have at home have a quiz for them, please log onto arbookfind.com and look the book up. You can test on those books, too! We will also be testing on books read in class. :) :) Happy Reading!
Box Tops for Education: Did you know that for every Box Top you donate our school earns .10? So, please clip your Box Tops and send them in with your student! We greatly appreciate your consideration. :)
Winter break wall of fame: This winter break, students have the opportunity to join the Winter Break Reader Wall of Fame!!! To participate, all students have to do is read over winter break, and take 1 Accelerated Reader test the first day we get back from Winter Break (January 7), and score an 80% or higher on the test. All students that do this will have their name put up on the Winter Break Reader Wall of Fame, and will receive a small prize!!!!
I look forward to another wonderful week in room 431! See you soon with your smiling faces!
