Lost and Found

Lost and Found is full. 

If your child is missing a sweater, jacket, lunch box, water bottle, or other item, please remind them to check lost and found. 

All items will be donated to a local charity over Fall Break.

Movement in the Classroom

It is so vital to have movement with our learning along with throughout our day! The rule of thumb is however many years old a child is, that is the amount of time that they can sit and concentrate on any  given subject!

SO, we try to make learning fun + engaging with movements, while also transition throughout the day to NEW materials to keep interest!

Here is one of my favorite sites that work at school AND AT HOME!

The Tiger Reading Challenge has started! The September challenge for ALL students is to read 600 minutes this month. You have until October 1, 2018 to log minutes into Biblionasium. (Late minutes WILL NOT COUNT. Make sure you submit them on time.) Read books, magazines, newspapers, RAZ kids, the cereal box at breakfast – ANYTHING. Just read. Exercise your brain. Read more about the challenge and watch some videos about Biblionasium on the Tiger Reading Program Page. 

Good LUCK!

Buying an annual pass saves you $10!  See the order form for additional details.

Attention- READING RESOURCE!

No homework this year? YIPEEE!!!!….but hold your horses!

We are still expecting that families read for AT LEAST 20 minutes a night. I know it can be boring and tedious to read the same low level books with your new reader BUT reading for 20 minutes can be fun!!!!

I have found that students get most excited about chapter books! They are for “big kids” and it forces them to use all kinds of reading comprehension, as they don’t have pictures on each page!

Don’t underestimate your kiddo- they are more than able to take on listening to reading…as long as the books are interesting and entertaining!

Here is a link to some HILARIOUS chapter books that are out. Many of these are right or slightly above their age range (meaning, they will eventually be able to read these books themselves!) Some are graphic novels, but all are SO FUN!

Funny Books for Kids

I encourage you to make reading fun at home! Bond over books! I know that we have only been in school for 4 weeks now, but we have already bonded, laughed, discussed and experienced chapter books in the classroom! Now, you try! 🙂

Football Friday!

Are you ready for some FOOTBALL?  Teasley’s Physical Education department is proud to partner with the NFL and their PLAY60 program to bring you BACK TO FOOTBALL Friday on September 7th.  Back to Football Friday is a school-wide event that encourages students to get active and excited about the upcoming football season.  Students are encouraged to wear their favorite NFL football gear.  During their specials time the students will participate in football related stations testing their throwing, catching, kicking, punting, and speed/agility.

Like any school-wide event, WE NEED YOUR HELP.  To volunteer please use this link  http://signup.com/go/WscGUKW.

 

Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Coach Homansky at [email protected] or Coach Sonny at [email protected].

Book Wish List

If you or anyone you know would love to gift our class with books here is our Amazon wish list!

I find that books are much greater gifts, than any type of candy 😉

New Handwriting Favorites

We are learning all new skills in the first weeks of Kindergarten, including penmanship! Writing is such a huge part of our Kindergarten goals and curriculum, therefore, it’s even more imperative to have good handwriting as well.

I’ve struggled for years to help Kinders break their bad habits coming into school. Many grip their pencils in awkward and/or painful positions. These motor skills can be difficult to break, as children have been positioning their hands in this manner for years! It becomes second nature to most!

These year I “bit the bullet” and bought a class set of handwriting grippers. AND I LOVE THEM! They function for both lefties and righties! They really put some consciousness back into writing, as children have to really think about their hand positions!

Here is a link to ones that I have purchased: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07CVX738H/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

If you are serious about handwriting at home, these might be good investments! 🙂
