Hello Kinder Parents!
I hope you are having a wonderful week so far.
Thank you everyone for your support in our school’s donation drive to help those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas! The response was AMAZING! First Grade students will be assembling bags on Wednesday to donate! Teasley’s Students, Parents, and Staff go above and beyond to help families in need. Thank you again for your support.
Here are a few class notes and reminders.

“Penelope’s Mom, Ms. Howe, was our Mystery Reader last week. She read one of Penelope’s favorite stories; Goodnight Moon to our class. Thanks for visiting us!”
Our line of inquiry for last week was: “American Symbols– (United States Flag, Georgia Flag, Pledge of Allegiance). We focused on a variety of symbols to investigate what a symbol is and why we use them. We ended our week by going on a hunt for symbols that represent our school, state, and counrty; creating an environmental print collage with our show & tell items, a replica of our US Flag, and ended our day eating delicious STAR shaped cookies in the outdoor classroom.
This week we are learning:
IB Unit- Who We Are: All About Me and My Community: How can community members get along? (feelings)
- Texts that will explore emotions while also expanding our vocabulary about feelings. We will also explore colors and how they can represent our feelings.
- Phonics: 3 letters can be used to make words: short vowel cvc words (cub, rib, ham, rod).
- Sight words: no, as, for, by
- Learning how to write: draw, label, touch and retell.
- Students will write about their feelings. We will create an anchor chart of feeling words (ex: happy, excited, joyful, merry)
- Number sense numbers 0-10
- Identifying what number come next and before, using a 100 chart.
- Count to 50
