Sorry about yesterday!

Sorry I forgot to blog yesterday! My husband reminded me on the way
home. Today, we had library checkout, practiced letter 'Jj', and started
our new math books. We will be patterning this week. Tomorrow, we will
have vision and hearing testing. Have a good day!

Another week gone!

Today, we met with reader pals and painted leaves. We also made Fall
trees and practiced our letters and words. Next week, we will continue
with our words (a, an, is, here, the) as well as letters Aa-Hh. Have a
great weekend!

What a Quick Week!

Today, we worked on letter 'Hh' and four new words: a, an, is, here. We
also started our new book "Lunch" which is in your child's folder.
Pictures went very well and they all smiled wonderfully. Tomorrow, we
will meet with Reader Pals.

The Days Fly By!

I cannot believe it is already Wednesday! Today, we visited the computer
lab and practiced letter 'Gg'. We also colored some color trains. This
afternoon, we practiced a lock-down drill. I do not make a dramatic deal
out of these drills because I do not want to scare the children. They
just know that we need to practice staying in our rooms and that we need
to be very quiet when Mr. Cawcutt checks on us. Tomorrow, we will
continue with our Fall unit and letter 'Hh'.

Terrific Tuesday

Today, the kids worked hard on letter Ff. We also continued practicing
the word 'the'. We had library checkout today. If your child wants, they
can return their library books to our classroom as early as tomorrow.
They can also choose to keep it until next Tuesday. Tomorrow, we will go
to the computer lab and practice letter 'Gg'. Have a good evening!

The kids were excellent listeners today! We were able to cut our apples
and make applesauce. The kids were wonderful about following directions
and staying safe. We also finished discussing apples and finished our
apple journal (should be in their folders). Next week, we will continue
practicing 'the' and letters 'Aa' thru 'Hh'. Have a great weekend!

Thursday Already!

Today, we worked on shapes. We also practiced nouns (the kids don't call
them nouns, but we practiced person, place, animal and object). The kids
have learned letters Aa thru Dd now as well as the word 'the'. Please
practice those letters and our word at home. Tomorrow, we have reader
pals and I will send home a homework page.

names and position words (up, down, over, under, etc). We also visited
the computer lab and the kids had the chance to play for awhile. Have a
good evening!

Terrific Tuesday

The kids worked hard today on letter Aa, shapes, and rhymes. We also
went to library. Please return their library book anytime before next
Tuesday. The kids also had a substitute for just a little while today so
I could test their letter and sound skills. I will let you know of these
results soon. Talk to you again tomorrow!

Back to School!

We had a good start to the week. We started practicing letter 'Aa' today
in reading. In math, we practiced colors and shapes. In unit, we
discussed apples and even tasted three different color apples. See if
your kiddo can tell you what colors. We also had a chance to go to the
computer lab and practice entering our passwords. Tomorrow, we will
learn more about the upcoming PTA fundraiser and go to the library to
checkout books.

Happy Friday!

The week is already over and the kids are excited for a little R and R
this weekend! Today, we met our reader pals and the kids had a great
time. We also worked on our shapes and our names. I sent home a homework
page for the weekend; your child's lunch and computer number. Please
help them for just a few minutes this weekend. We will also practice it
at school. We will be starting an apple unit next week. Have a great

What a Quick Week

I can't believe it is already Thursday! The kids did a much better job
today of raising hands and waiting for a turn to talk. This is a slow
process in kindergarten so I was very impressed with their progress this
week. We worked on shapes and colors today. We also drew a picture about
why we are good friends. Tomorrow, we will meet our reader pals for the
first time. These are 6th grade students who come to the room and read
with us on Fridays. I am sure the kids will love this!

We had a good day full of great listening! I was very proud to see the
kids settling into the routine. Today, we worked on shapes and colors.
We also practiced names. We will continue with this tomorrow. We also

will be playing in the computer lab next week. Have a good evening!

We worked on centers today for the first time (the kids have a
designated spot to go and work in the room). We also started letter time
(practice up/down and across lines), and math (in front/behind, next
to). Tomorrow, we will have library for the first time. We will also
continue with centers. Have a great evening!

We worked hard on coloring today. We made some projects for our open
house as well (September 11th at 5). Next week, we will begin our
reading and writing activities such as drawing straight and curved
lines. We will also be starting math and will be talking about colors,
shapes, and position words. Have a great weekend!

What a Great Group!

We did a lot of stuff today all because this group does a great job of
following directions. We were able to color and talk a little more about
bus safety. At rest time, we watched a movie about Franklin going to
school. We went to gym and read a story about too many frogs.

hands, and went to gym. We also discussed our classroom rules of
respect, responsibility, and safety. If you have sent all forms in,
thanks so much! You have until Friday to complete all the forms and send
in the class fee. Talk to you tomorrow!
