I hope that you all are enjoying some relaxing family time this break. Not to worry you still have another week left! Mrs. Doran and I want to thank you all for the lovely class gift baskets and for all of your individual cards, treats, and gift cards. We feel incredibly blessed by your support. Looking over these smiling faces I miss our sweet class and look forward to seeing them on Monday January 7.
Class notes: I will post again before school starts back but I wanted to give you all a heads up on a few things.
We have cleaned the class from top to bottom and the students have cleaned out their pencil boxes and added their new crayons and pencils, we are hoping to start 2019 healthy and germ free! This is a great time for you to wash backpacks, jackets, and lunch boxes!
100th day celebration! We have been counting up to the 100th day since our first day of school. Unfortunately as we began to plan for this special day we realized that it falls on January 17- the day that the kindergarten team will be out of the classroom for an IB planning day. At this point we will be celebrating on Wednesday January 16. We are asking students to decorate a plain t shirt with 100 items for this special day . Please see the attached letter for information on the header of this blog.
Flexible seating: Kindergarten by its very nature is a flexible seating classroom. I am exploring the use of sensory cushions for student use on the carpet or in their seats. If you feel that this might help your child’s focus you may send one in. This will be their personal cushion that they can keep in their cubby when not using. If students bring in a cushion there may be times that I ask them to put their cushion away if it becomes a distraction or plaything. Sometimes this happens as they get used to using it. I have posted an example under “flexible seating” a the top of this page.
Glue Sticks: Please send in one multi pack of glue sticks, if you are able. Many glue sticks were used between the Thanksgiving and Christmas craft season!
Gingerbread house assembling and decorating- special thanks to Mrs. Doran’s mom for the extra hands.
Happy Grinch Day!
Congratulations to our “Principled” IB learner of the month.
Santa visited Teasley Kindergarten- what a great start to our holiday party!
Thank you to all those who donated to our holiday party and also to those who came to help. We had a wonderful time with games, crafts, and decorating cookies (also a little photo booth time).
