Kindergarten News: 4/21
We wrapped up our study of American history. We explored changes America has seen over the years. Each student wrote an informative paragraph with six sentences! We’ve worked hard to read with more automaticity and fluency. In math, we are building fluency with addition and subtraction. We’ve explored plants and bugs. We’re excited to go to the zoo and see what else we can learn about plants, animals, and bugs!
-Students need to bring a sack lunch for our field trip to the zoo on Wednesday. Students should wear their red field trip shirt and tennis shoes.
-One peanut free snack and filled water bottle should be sent each day.
-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.
