Kindergarten News: 9/22

Hi Families,
We have loved watching your student grow. This week, the students will explore Chicka Chicka Boom Boom during ELA.
The students will read and respond to this text to continue building strong routines for ELA. In foundations, the students will be learning the letters O, C, G and I. We encourage you to continue working on letters at home and through some of the practice pages in the foundations workbooks we have sent home. In math, the students will be continuing to count and compare numbers. Stay tuned for more updates!

-Please send in headphones for your student if you haven’t already.
-A peanut free snack and water bottle should be sent each day.
-We love celebrating birthdays! Students can celebrate at school by bringing in individually wrapped, prepackaged treats. Please no cupcakes. Please coordinate with your teacher if your child’s birthday falls on a weekend, break, or day we are not in school.
