KINDERGARTEN NEWS – 4/7/17

THIS WEEK

-We had fun learning about the weather this week.  The children particularly enjoyed playing the part of meteorologist and giving the weather report for the day.  We also reviewed all of our word families to date and practiced measuring with non-standard units in math.  For Jesus time we had the story of Palm Sunday.  Our lessons were filled with joyful songs of praise, and Collins and Dalilah delighted us with their own songs of praise during our lessons.  We rejoice that Jesus is our Redeemer, the Lord of heaven, our King.

NEXT WEEK

THIS WEEK

-Aloha!  What a fabulous trip we had to Hawaii. Volcanoes, hula dancing, pineapple and coconut tasting, grass skirts and leis, rhythm and writing activities, and a surfing lesson from Mrs. Baldwin!  I am so thankful for all the parent help with both time and donations.  Our trip was fabulous because of you!

-Our Bible story this week was Noah’s Ark (Genesis 6:9-9:17).  We learned about God’s mercy to His faithful children.  We rejoice that God rescues us through the gift of his son Jesus, who died and rose for us so we can have eternal life in heaven.

KINDERGARTEN NEWS – 3/24/17

THIS WEEK

-We had a big week of working on subtraction and /e/ word families as well as reviewing sight words and naming 2D & 3D shapes.  We also worked with magnets and learned about attracting and repelling.  We had magnet races, magnet fishing, mazes and discovery games.  The children have decided it would be a good idea to keep the magnets at our science table for a few weeks. 

-For Jesus time we had the story of Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38-42).  We learned that we need to take time to stop, look, and listen to God’s Word and not let the things of this world distract us from learning about God’s love for us.

-Report cards were sent home today.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

NEXT WEEK

-It’s the annual kindergarten “trip to Hawaii”.  Please see the separate note in the Friday Folder reminding you of things that can be worn and/or brought to school for this special event.  Clothing to change into may brought in a separate bag that can be left at school overnight on Tuesday.  Refer to the separate note.

-March Reading Logs are due on Friday.  April Reading Logs and a new word list will be sent home next week.

-Snack Reminder:  Monday-Avery, Tuesday-Jaden, Wednesday-Brielle, Thursday-Angelina, Friday-Caitlin.  Please remember when sending individual snacks that we have 19 children in the class.  The April Snack Calendar is in the Friday Folder.

-Lunch Volunteers: Wednesday: Baldwin, Thursday: Pritts, Friday-Belen

LOOKING WAY AHEAD…

-Mark your calendar for kindergarten graduation which takes place on Friday, June 2 at 10:00 am.  We will be taking a head count in early May so check in with any possible guests to help us have a complete count.  The children perform many songs and dances, and it’s a fun time for all.

That’s all for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Blessings!

KINDERGARTEN NEWS – 3/10/17

THIS WEEK

-Reading is fun.  Reading is fun.  Reading is fun for everyone.  The more you read, the better you’ll read so read, read, read!  We enjoyed Dr. Seuss fun this week with crafts, books, writing, and math activities.  We are also learning about being citizens, and will be working on a book over the next several weeks to show what we have learned.  For Jesus time we had the story of Jesus healing a paralyzed man (Mark 2:1-12).  Children learned that they can pray both for themselves and others, knowing that Jesus cares.

NEXT WEEK

-Friday is a half day of school.  We will have some St. Patrick’s Day fun during the week and focus on /e/ word families in reading and subtraction in math. 

-Friday is also the end of the quarter, so formal assessments of basic skills will be taking place in the next couple weeks.

-Snack Reminder: Monday-Dalilah, Tuesday-Joey, Wednesday-Max, Thursday-Zoe, Friday-Samantha.

-Lunch Volunteers: Wednesday-Wright.

That’s all for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend.  Jesus Loves You!
