This Week In Kindergarten: (12/2-12/6)

Hello Kinder Parents,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and are ready for another FANTASTIC week! December is going to be a BUSY month…HOLD ON TIGHT! 

CLASS NOTES:

BRRRR…IT’S COLD!: Just a reminder…the weather is getting colder.  We will still go outside for recess whenever possible. Please make sure to send your student in appropriate clothing. In addition to winter coats, gloves and winter hats can be worn to school. Please make sure ALL ITEMS are LABELED. We want to make sure you get them back if they are lost.

RAZ-KIDS: This week in your child’s purple folder you will find an information sheet with the login information and your Kinder’s password for Raz-Kids.  We will introduce the students to Raz-Kids at school. Please take some time to use this great resource at home. For each book read in the LEVEL UP SECTION students will need to listen to the story (picture of an ear), read the story independently (picture of a book), and depending on the reading level, answer comprehension questions (picture of a question mark). I placed each student on their specific independent reading level. The purpose of the LEVEL UP section is to give students the opportunity to practice reading several books on their level. They cannot move to the next reading level in the app until they have a “green check mark” on every icon under all their books. I encourage you to take advantage of this resource as much as possible.  https://www.kidsa-z.com/main/Login   

MEDIA CENTER: We will visit the Media Center on THURSDAY. Please make sure library books are in backpacks ready to be returned. “BOOK BAGGIES” will be sent home on Thursday. Thanks for your help.

SHOW & TELL: FRIDAYStudents may bring in ONE show and tell item that ends with the following word families: /-at/ (as in “cat, mat, or hat”), /-an/ (as in “can, man, or fan”), /-ap/ (as in “cap or map”), /-ig/ (as in “pig, wig, or fig”) …Students should only bring in ONE item to share.
