  • A cornucopia of Fall Learning

    Posted by Tamra Myers on 11/6/2017

    November is upon us, and as usual there is a lot to learn, and a lot going on.  This week marks the first week that we will have Stretch a Word as part of our homework.  This one activity can foster a lot of learning in a small amount of time. 

     

     So what is Stretch a Word?  I am glad to tell you--- but since a picture (or a video) is worth a thousand words-- you can find a step by step example here

  • Spooktacular Learning in Kindergarten

    Posted by Tamra Myers on 10/30/2017

    Week of October 30- November 3

     

    It is hard to believe that October is almost over and that November will be beginning this week.  We have a busy week ahead.   For one thing it is red-ribbon week and we will be celebrating our drug free status through the clothes we wear (see the note in the newsletter or the bright red flyer that went home).  We will also be having our pumpkin rotation on the 31st. This is not a party- rather it is a series of stations that students will go to for 15 minutes at a time to work on pumpkin related activities.  We will

    • measure our pumpkins 

    • see if pumpkins sink or float   

    • taste pumpkin flavored foods 

    • make a Spookley the square pumpkin snack

    • and use our 5 senses to tell what a pumpkin is like inside and out

    And here is a copy of our newsletter to peruse...newsletter

  • Learning October Style-- October 16-20

    Posted by Tamra Myers on 10/16/2017

    It is so hard to believe that the first nine weeks have passed. Report cards will be coming out on the 20th, and we are beginning the 2nd nine weeks already. 

    This nine weeks we will be beginning to work on sight words in earnest- so if your child is still a bit behind on learning their letters and sounds it is essential that you work with them at home.  We will continue to work with letters and sounds here at school as well-- but if they are behind they really need that extra 1 on 1 practice with you. 

    Here is a copy of the newsletter that is going home tomorrow...newsletter

    There is an ELA and a Math homework this week.  They are due on Friday.
