Kindergarten News: 11/4

Hello Families!

We concluded our study of the five senses. We can identify and describe each sense, use text evidence to support our answers, form questions about books we read, and label our pictures. We continued our study of two-dimensional shapes- we know circle, square, rectangle, triangle, and hexagon. This week we learned about letters v, z, p, and e. Students should be able to read and form simple words in the consonant, vowel, consonant pattern using the letters listed above and m, a, g, I, c, d, o, t, n, h, s, and f.


-Navigator day is Thursday, November 10th. Please send your student to school in their field trip shirt!

-One peanut free snack and filled water bottle should be sent each day.

-Please label all clothing with your student’s name. Many students have PPE Spirit wear and we want to ensure it gets home with the correct student.

-Additionally, please help your student practice buttoning, snapping, or zipping their coats independently. As the weather begins getting cooler jackets are necessary during arrival, dismissal, and recess. Students putting on and taking off coats independently is a big time saver!

-Students should come to school in SSA each day. SSA includes navy, black, and khaki bottoms. Dresses and jumpers can be any solid color. Shirts can be any solid color with a collar. PPE t-shirts and sweatshirts can be worn any day of the week. PPE athletic shorts and skorts can be worn on Fridays.
