First weeks of school are a success!

Thank you sooooooooooooo much to ALL parents and guardians for all your help, understanding, and for filling out all the paperwork I had to send home and for coming out to Open House Monday night! I loved meeting you all. It seems that this year's transition from summer to full day school has been an easy one for the kids. Some have had a couple tears here and there but to me they have all been AMAZING!

The Class Dojo monsters you helped you kids create have been one of my favorite things this year! Never before have I used that feature of Class Dojo! Check out some of the monsters they kids have created!


If you want to receive your child's weekly behavior report, link your e-mail to your child's account. If you need me to send you an invite to join Class Dojo just let me know that and I will get right on it!

On another note, I tried to take pictures of what we have done over the past three weeks. Each day we started off the morning playing with blocks, cubes, puzzles, Legos, finger puppets or play-doh.

The kids are absolutely awesome at sharing and helping each other! One day the kids created their own finger puppet show! It was one of the cutest things I have seen in my six years of teaching.

Some of the books we have been reading include The Kissing Hand, No David!, David Goes to School, The Big Mouthed Frog, David Gets in Trouble and Wimberly Worried.

All the kids seemed to like the David books the best! My favorite part was when students made their own Davids! We made them as part of our Peacemakers and Peacebreakers lesson which connected to what we have been learning in Social Studies about citizenship. We learned that Peacemakers follow rules and Peacebreakers break the rules.

Last week we started our reading and math curriculum. In reading we learned the letter A, and we practiced counting the words in a sentence.

This week we will be learning the letter B and the ba- blend. If you want to see some of the videos and songs we learned to go along with these letters click on the dots located on each individual letter!

I hope everyone enjoyed the kindergarten keepsake boxes the kids made for you at Open House. If you were unable to come then keep your eyes open for a bag to come home soon with your child's box inside it.

Once again thank you all! I don't think this school year would have been as successful without your help! Also thank you for all the school supplies you provided to the classroom! As always if you have questions or concerns don't hesitate to e-mail me or post on our Facebook page.
