This week:  The children have loved the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears this week.  We spoke about the personality of the characters and whether Goldilocks’ actions were principled.  During centers, the children had to build a chair that was strong enough for all the characters in the story to sit on.  The children have also loved exploring nonfiction books this week! They have been interested in learning about different animals, space, and different countries.  I encourage you to have some of these books at home too.

Mr. Fields came in and taught a lesson about including others in their games.  The children thought about how to ask others to play and how to join in their friends’ games.

Thank you to all the parents who attended our first KG1 Parent Workshop on Tuesday! This was our first time using this format, and we hope to be able to offer these next year on a more regular basis. We will be sending the links to some of the presentations to you via email.

Ramadan Schedule began today. Just a reminder that our morning schedule for KG1 has changed slightly. Students may not be dropped off before 7:30, as there is no supervision until that time. We will be staying on the playground each morning until 8:25 since the weather is cooler then. YOUR CHILD SHOULD BRING THEIR WATER BOTTLE TO THE PLAYGROUND WHEN THEY ARRIVE AT SCHOOL EACH DAY. There is no need for you to wait for the whistle to blow, and we will do our attendance after 8:25.

Dismissal/pickup is normal 12:45 time for KG1. Lastly, if your child rides the school bus, remind them that they will be riding a full bus of ALL ages PK-Grade 12.
Also, in KG1 we continue to drink water and have our 2 regular snacks, so please send in as normal.

Work coming home:  The children have started to color an emergent reader for Goldilocks.  Read through this with your child at home, allowing them to tell you the story using their own words.

Next week:  How We Express Ourselves performances begin next week! We hope that your child has been planning, preparing and practicing for their presentations of re-telling a favorite story. Any props, costumes, books, puppets, etc. should be placed in a bag and sent in the morning of their performance. We will video each performance and send to you via blog or email link.
