Red Ribbon Week

Our class spent this week learning about how to live healthy.  Ms. Gilner our Kindergarten counselor came to visit us and taught us about good medicine and bad medicine.  We had fun dressing up in different ways this week to support red ribbon week.

A reminder that Pitner’s Fall Jamboree has been postponed until early November due to the expected rain this weekend.

We learned about bats this week as part of our unit on day and night. We learned about bats, wrote about bats and made bat cookies.  Next week we will continue our unit on night and day and start talking about Thanksgiving.


Early Release Week

Hi, we all made it through early release week in tact here in room 105. We are looking forward to returning to our 10:18 lunch time after a week of lunch at 9:30.  Very special thanks to all of the parents who met with me over the past 2 weeks. Building a connection between home and school will help your child become a more successful student.

We celebrated 50’s day on Wednesday and Cape Day on Friday this week.  The children had fun dancing to some 50’s music and talking about how it was back then.  We learned about spiders this week in writing to help us learn about informational writing. We finished up our books on Friday and celebrated by making a spider cookie to eat for snack.  Next week we will study bats for both science and writing as we start a science unit on night and day.

Don’t forget that next week is Red Ribbon Week. Monday is wear red to school day.

Have a great weekend!

Howdy Folks!

We have had a very busy week learning lots of new things. Our week ended with our first annual country and western day.  Next week we have 50’s day on Wednesday and cape day on Friday.

Please cut out and donate your box tops to our school.  One full sheet is worth $2.00 for our school. You will find a new sheet in your folder every month.

We are very proud of all of our students who are working hard on their sight words and are moving up on our rainbow. Be sure to look for your child’s name on the rainbow when you come for your conference next week. Students will need to know 30 of the 75 required sight words by the end of this nine week period. Mrs. Perry makes sure that she keeps up with how many sight words each  child knows in the back of their folder.

How Time Flies!

Friday was the end of the first nine weeks of school. Wow the year seems to be moving by quickly. The children have been working very hard to learn the beginning skills of Kindergarten. The second nine weeks will be filled with learning our numbers to 20, working on our reading and writing skills and lots of other new skills.

On Wednesday we went to the farm and had a wonderful day. This is one of my favorite field trips so filled with activities for the children to participate in. We learned about bees, held chickens, went on a hay ride, painted a picture of a pig and met lots of farm animals.

On Friday we celebrated the end of the first nine weeks by holding our ZooPhonics parade.  The children all looked wonderful in their costumes.  The students from first through fifth grade love watching the parade and reminiscing about their Kindergarten days.  Thank you to all of the parents who were able to attend.

Conferences will be held during the week of Oct 16th – 20th.  This week will be early release every day. Please return your conference form as soon as possible. If you are unable to attend at the assigned time please give me some alternative times.
