Teacher Parent Conferences today! Please remember these conferences are for parents and teachers only. See you later today!
This week we began to study the Joyful Mysteries and created images to represent our understandings of them. We discussed how Mary may have felt when she heard she was going to be the Mother of Jesus. Ask your child what they thought! We have even been practicing the Hail Mary Prayer and can finally recite it as a class without the teacher’s help! Way to go Kindergartens!
Since we had no letter of the week we had time to practice our alphabet recognition and spelling through letter games. We made puzzles to spell words, pinned clothespins on alphabet cards and created letters with Play-dough.
We also met our buddies for the first time this week and had some time to spend reading with them. We will be making some crafts with them next week as well. We are getting to know our buddies so that we can attend the next school Mass in November. We are all very excited about this.
Tuesday we also participated in a Cross Country assembly where we recognized and congratulated the Cross Country team for their awesome accomplishments at the Cross Country Meet in October.
Although this week was very short, we managed to squeeze in many activities , including math stations, literacy stations and even created our own pumpkin art…take a look at it on our Bulletin Board outside the classroom today!
Pumpkin Patch Tuesday October 28th!
I will send out another reminder, but please note we have the pumpkin patch on Tuesday (rain or shine… but shine I hope!), and we will be spending majority of our day there. We will have our guided tour, choose our pumpkin and then get to have a juice box and snack. Time and weather permitting we are hoping to have some free time to explore the animal farm and other attractions and activities. I am hoping to be back at the school for 1-130pm. We will then have a couple of classroom activities to finish off the day. Dismissal will be at 3pm as usual.
On Wednesday we will be having pumpkin discovery in our classroom between 9am – 1030am. I am looking for 5 parents who are able to help in the classroom that day to help lead some stations. It will be a great morning to participate in if you can (possibly a bit messy 🙂 ) and will count for Parent Participation Hours.
Please send me an email asap if you would like to volunteer.
Letter of the Week
Next week we will continue with our letter of the week. We will be focusing on the letter E. Please help your child find a variety of letter E images.
Just a reminder that we will not be having a Halloween treat exchange on Friday October 31st, however we will be making and decorating Rice Krispie Squares that I will make. The ingredients are rice krispies, butter, vanilla, and marshmallows and of course some orange food coloring to make them Halloween-ish 🙂
If you do not want your child to eat the Rice Krispie square, please send an alternative treat along with them that day and email me to let me know.
We are currently in the process at the school to update all classrooms with a blog site. Therefore this blog will now be found linked to the school’s website. I am awaiting to hear if there will be any changes made to how you receive and access the blog. I will let you know by email if there are changes as soon as possible.
Thank you for being patient in this matter.
