FEBRUARY is here! It is I Love to Read month, so we have a few things planned:
I would like each child to bring in their favorite book (or one of them) ASAP! Some have come in (see below) but we are still waiting for more!
BOOK READING: We are keeping track of how many books we read during the month. I sent home information about this along with a sheet numbered 1-10. Every time you read to your child or your child reads to you, fill out the sheet with the book title (or chapter). Once the sheet is filled, send it to school and I will send a new one home. Any kindergartner who has 20 books or more read will get prizes and lunch in the classroom! IF the whole class reaches the goal, we will have a pizza party!
February 17th: HAWAIIAN Day

March 2nd – Dr. Seuss’s Birthday (Read Across America Day): FAVORITE BOOK CHARACTER Day (dress as favorite book character)
During the week of January 30-February 3, we discussed SCIENCE and what it is! Below is one experiment we did with bubbles! We also made volcanoes and paper airplanes….Science can be so FUN (and NOISY)!
Every week we have a “Special Person of the Week”. This person fills out a poster, brings things to school that tell us about themselves, shares these things with the class, and has lunch with the kindergarten teachers! Below are pictures of our first three! It sure was fun having lunch with them!
We had a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving Feast on November 23rd! Here are some pictures from our special lunch together, and THANK YOU to all the parents who came in to help out! It made a HUGE difference!
Our Principal, Mr. Howe, came to our classroom to read a funny story called Underwear. Mr. Howe did such a great job reading it! Thanks Mr. Howe!
Heading down 1st St SE!
Meredith and Grandma made it!
We went on a Summer Hike September 12th! It was warm and windy….and a bit buggy (must be all that rain)! We still had a great time walking through the nature center with Mrs. Fish’s class!
We have two September birthdays! Both Seth and Kalei are now 6 years old! We hope you had a fun day celebrating the day you were born!
Kindergarten Camp was so much fun! We had a great turn out, completed all the activities, and learned a little about each other so we can start our school year off knowing names and our morning routine! Thanks parents for jumping on board with us!
We are looking forward to a super fun year!
There are 19 kindergartners in our class (one missing from this picture)!
