Reminders

Monthly Learning Updates
Your monthly update on literacy will be coming home this Friday. Overall the class is showing growth with letter sounds! Most students have mastered their letter sounds so next month I will send home information about your child’s progress with sight words. If your child is struggling with identifying letter sounds I will continue to send those updates home.

Celebration of the Arts
Please join us this Friday, March 14, from 6:30-8:30 for our Celebration of the Arts. There will be art activities for your child to create as well as performances and auction items. Your child’s artwork will also be on display in the hallway.

Summer School
Please enroll in summer school as soon as you can. This is a great opportunity for learning!

Spring Party- February 13th

Our Spring party is February 13th from 2:30-3. Feel free to come celebrate with us! Our party will be focused on spring but I know many children and parents look forward to making and exchanging valentine cards. Please feel free to make valentine cards with your child if you wish. It is not required in any way. The children will have an opportunity to pass out their cards earlier in the day on the 13th. If you choose to do cards, please include a card for each child and send the cards on February 13th. I will send home a list of names this Friday. Have fun!

Monthly Literacy Learning Update

This Friday you will receive an update on your child’s literacy progress. The form tells about your child’s progress with knowing letter sounds, one of our most important kindergarten learning goals! Please practice the sounds your child does not know. The form will give suggestions for practice as well as ideas to extend and apply your child’s knowledge of the alphabet.

Library Checkout each Friday

We go to the library each Friday to check out books. Please help your child return their book by Friday so they can check out a new one. If they forget their old book, the new book they pick out will be saved for one day. The children can check out on Monday if they forget their book on Friday.

Monthly Learning Updates

Beginning this month, you will receive two learning updates each month concerning your child’s progress. One learning update will be about important math skills, and the other about important literacy skills. This Friday you will receive the math monthly learning update. Each learning update will include information about your child’s progress as well as ideas for practicing the skill at home. I hope the learning updates help you feel more connected to our classroom and empowered to make a difference in your child’s learning!
