We have a busy, busy week in room 431! This week we're learning about the letter Oo and its sound. We're also learning a new sight word you. We're continuing to practice our reading, writing, and math skills. Your boys and girls are really fantastic! This week we'll also learn about the farm as we prepare for our fieldtrip to the farm on Monday, November 17th.
Thanksgiving Celebration: We hope you can join us as we give thanks during our Thanksgiving Celebration on Wednesday, November 19th at 1:15-2:15. Our class is teaming up with Mrs. Henderson's class for a skit and some festive songs. We'll perform in Mrs. Henderson's class and then enjoy some yummy deserts in our room. Please bring a blanket, because if weather permits, we'll get to enjoy our deserts outside on our back patio. :)
Get ready! We're going to the farm! Our class will be going to GreenMeadows Farm (http://www.greenmeadowsfarm.com/ ~check it out!) on Monday, November 17th. We will be leaving the school at 8:00 to travel by charter bus to the farm. Each student needs to bring a bag lunch and a drink from home, or purchase one from our cafeteria (typically pb&j). We will return to the Primary Center by 3:30 p.m. Your child will need to be picked up at that time or go to aftercare. One parent per family will be allowed to chaperone. Due to the limited number of seats available on busses, parents will need to provide their own transportation. Please no siblings. Chaperones will earn 5 hours of PI service time. Please dress your student in a BLUE uniform shirt and khaki bottoms.
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. :)
I look forward to another wonderful week in room 431! See you soon with your smiling faces!
