hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for another busy week in
kindergarten! Thank you for your support
and working to prepare your children for school. The children are settling in
nicely and are beginning to learn our classroom and school routines. I am very proud of the effort they have put
forth so far! Please continue to work on your child’s independence with their
belongings (shoes, jackets) I hope you are able to take in some of the Harvest
Jazz and Blues performances this week.
What we are learning:
week we will be introducing the letter sounds for “Ss” and “Aa”. Sight words are words that we practice at
school, which the children should be able to recognize at a glance. The sight word
we will be working on this week is “to”.
In math, we will begin working on a unit on sorting and patterns.

On Thursday, September 15th we will be
having a presentation on behalf of the Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival by
