            Welcome to Kindergarten

Dear Kindergarten families~ First of all, How is it already December????  Time has gotten away from me.  I apologize that I haven’t gotten to this yet.   We have had quite the busy little month of November.  I met with you all at Parent Teacher Conferences.  I appreciate all of your attendance and discussion during that time.  We will begin next week with some of our end of Unit assessments as we just finished our Science Unit on Plants and Animals and are wrapping up our 1st Fundations Unit this week.   We have now learned a whole lot of information about plants, animals, how they live and their habitats.  Ask your child about Mariposa Grove and the monarch caterpillars. With this week finishing up our Unit 1 of Fundations, your child has now learned all the letters of the alphabet and the sounds that each of the letters make.  We will begin soon to start working on breaking up words and finding the sounds that each letter makes to put them together to form words.  For example- cat is broken up into c, a, t. We have moved onto finding enough to make a match for math.  This will lead us into comparing numbers and eventually adding in our next module.   We will be visiting the Tiverton High School on December 21st for a Holiday Concert in the morning.  That will also be our last day of school before the Winter vacation.   On December 20, I’ll be looking for some help in the afternoon for a special winter project.  If you are available from 1:30 until 3:00 AND have your background check turned into the school and would like to help, please let me know.  I cannot guarantee all parents can come, I will need about 5-6 helpers, so if I have more interested, I will pick from a hat.  Please let me know as soon as possible so that I can make appropriate accommodations for that day. There are a few things I am looking for in the classroom in case you want to help replenish some supplies.  Our classroom could use some yellow highlighters and some hot glue sticks.  If you are able to help supply these things, please let me know. As the holidays approach, sometimes our little ones get a little hyped up.  If you could be reminding your child about focusing on school, listening and keeping their hands to them selves that would be very helpful. Thank you for your partnership in your child’s education. Miss Scanlon :)
