Kindergarten News: 9/16

Hello Parents,
We started a new book about the five senses, Last Stop on Market Street by Matt De La Pena, and discussed how our we can use our senses in the world. We are continuing our math unit on numbers 1-10 and discussing groups of more/ less/ the same. We encourage you to ask your student to find groups of objects when you’re out and about. They are doing a great job incorporating more, less, and the same into sentences when talking about groups of objects.

-One peanut free snack and 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.
