It’s Been A Busy Week!
It has been a great first week in kindergarten! We are so happy to have your special children with us each day!
We started out the week with one of our favorite books, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr. and John Archambault.
We have enjoyed learning a variety of songs and games and are begininng to learn each other’s names. Our favorite song is the R-E-D song and our favorite finger play is Mr. Wiggle and Mr. Waggle. Ask your child to share these with you.
We have been learning how to use our school tools appropriately, setting up procedures and routines for our classrooms. We focused on being a good listener and following directions.
Parent Forum –
Please plan to attend Parent Forum on Thursday, September 6th. We will meet in Mrs. Manning’s room where we will give a brief overview of our program from 6:30-7:00 and then answer questions from 7:00-7:30. This is a time for parents to learn about the year so please plan other arrangements for your child as there will be no childcare available.
