The children had a very smooth first full day of school. Please don’t forget that our back to school night is next Thursday at 5:00pm. I hope you can make it.
Here are a few things that will help your child before we meet next week.
*It can be chilly in out classroom. Please send your child with his or her school sweatshirt. He or she can keep it in the chair pocket and can wear it whenever he or she needs.
*We have a very short period of time for snack so please send only one item to eat at this time. It is easiest to keep it in a bag separate from lunch. The children put their snack in their cubbies and their lunch boxes on the shelf.
* I can not usually answer emails during the school day. If you have a change of dismissal please call the office to ensure that I get the message.
We began our Superkid’s program today and the children really seemed excited to meet the first Superkid named Cass. She will teach the children the hard c sound as in Cass and cat.
We will begin our first chapter in GoMath tomorrow. This will include the numbers from one to five. The children will be responsible for recognizing the number words from one to five as well as the actual numbers. They will also learn to show the numbers with the correct quantity of objects.
The children brought home the prayer Grace Before Meals which we pray before snack each day. They also brought home a paper lunchbox that they made that includes a little discussion on the back about rules in the cafeteria. Each child has been assigned an 8th grade buddy that sits with him or her for the first few months of school to help. Please talk to your child about the proper lunch room behaviors listed on his or her lunchbox.
Don’t forget that Friday is a 12:00 pm dismissal.
Have a great week.
