Things continue to go smoothly in KG2LF. We are busy reading, writing and now learning about subtraction. We finished our PYP unit on our local environment. We are starting my favorite unit, Books Alive! I love books and reading so you can bet there will be a lot of reading going on in our classroom including book studies, author studies, comparing and contrasting different versions of the same story and learning about character, setting and problem and solution. We will also learn how to determine what happens in the beginning, middle and end of a story. We will even have a visit from a real author. Whew, that’s a lot for Kindergarten!
To go along with our unit, I am asking that each child bring in one of their favorite books. It can be any book they choose; it does not have to be in English. If you do not have a copy of their favorite book let me know what it is and I will see if the library or I have a copy they can use.
A reminder that tomorrow and Thursday are dress up spirit days. Tomorrow they should dress as a teacher; it can be any kind of teacher. Thursday we will have crazy hair day.
Due to staffing changes in administration KG2 will no longer have a specific IT class. However; I will still take them sometimes up to use the computers as I feel it is an important skill for them to have other than swiping on the IPad. To make up for the lost class the administration has graciously given us an extra PE class. This class will now be every Tuesday morning. So now we have PE on Monday, Tuesday, Wed. and Thursday. Please try to remember their PE clothes on these days.
There is no school on Sunday, April 23rd.
Wednesday, April 26th is a half day, dismissal at 12:00.
There is no school on Thursday, April 27th
You will be receiving a paper today with your scheduled student-led parent conference date and time. Please remember that your child MUST attend the meeting with you as they are the teacher and will be showing you all of the great things that we do throughout our day. Please notify me if you are not able to attend at the given time.
The book fair will be at UAS next week. You may send money for your child if you would like them to buy a book, or better yet, take them when you come for conferences on the 26th or 27th so you can help them make good choices. This is a perfect time for you to pick up some reading and workbooks for the long summer.
That’s it for now. I hope all is well for you and your family. I look forward to seeing you and your child for student-led conferences.
