PI OPPORTUNITIES: Please be sure to attend the Buffalo P.R.I.D.E on Tuesday, November 4th at 6:00 in the VCMS gym. Parents are asked to donate paper products or desserts for our Thanksgiving Program this month. A notice will be sent home with the details, and we appreciate any help you can give our classroom.
HOMEWORK: A packet will be put in your child's binder for Monday- Thursday homework. Please have your child complete one activity each day. To encourage success in Kindergarten, please help your child to know all of the upper and lowercase letter names and the sight words on the 100 Club List. (See the Upper and lowercase letter recognition PDF practice sheet below) Oral counting of numbers 0 to 50 will be assessed at the end of the 2nd nine weeks of school. Students who have master counting to 50 may progress until they have mastered counting 0-100! Offer opportunities for your student to count objects at home, and encourage them to use an index finger to touch each object as they count. Baggie books are sent home on Mondays and must be returned each week by Thursday to participate in the this take-home book class program.
EVENTS: Our Field Trip to Green Meadows Farm is on November 5th. Please make sure that your child wears a GREEN uniform shirt if possible, and is on time and well-rested for school that day. Chaperones should be on time, wear comfortable footwear and remember to bring a bag lunch. Specific guidelines for chaperones will be sent home in your child's binder. Check the November Newsletter for a full list of events.
We will be honoring the veterans that we know by displaying their names and pictures on our classroom "Wall of Honor." Please send in all photos by November 7th, so that we have ample time to view and honor these wonderful military men and women.
