Thank you to everyone who came on our trip to High Velocity. We had such a good time!!!! The students practiced the need for rules and good sportsmanship. What a great way to wrap up our social studies unit.

In math, we are working on building a ten to make adding two numbers easier. Also we continue to work on story problems. Remember to have your child draw a picture, and a number bond to explain their thinking.

In science, we are beginning to learn about what produces light and the different properties of light. After winter break, I will be asking students to bring in flashlights with working batteries to use for class experiments. We will keep the flashlights for about a month. Then they will be returned home.

In social studies, we are discussing basic needs for families. Also we have been comparing different family traditions. The concept of past, present, and future are also being addressed. The more you use the vocabulary; past, present and future at home the quicker it will become part of their vocabulary

We have a google classroom that was just set up. The class code, if you need it is l8zvm7i I hope to be posting more information on it later. You may acess pearson easybridge and google classroom through your child’s clever login..

Holiday Break packets will be coming home next week.
Happy New Year and have a wonderful break.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Neuenschwander

Dear Parents,

Since November 2018, I have been working with the kindergarten classes as the kindergarten reading consultant.  The teachers made a list of students that I service.  The last several weeks, we have been testing and will be resuming our regular schedule soon.  Some students will change reading consultants and others will stay the same.

It is important that your child reads every day.  It is part of our school improvement program.  Each child has a reading log.  Please make sure that the time is recorded and that you sign the sheet.  It shows the students that reading is important.  If you do not have a reading log, please write your child’s name, date, minutes read and sign or initial on a note paper and I will see that they get a new log.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at neuensb@dearborn schools.org or

827-1800.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Neuenschwander

On October 31st we will have a Halloween Parade at 2:30  inside the school.  First graders are part of the parade.  Costumes may be brought to school and put on before the parade.  Please do not wear the costume to school as it can be distracting.  We have 18 students on our list.  If you would like to send in candy, please make sure that there are 18 pieces.

Our classroom can get quite cold.  We have a large vent fan that is always on.  Please let your child bring a sweater or sweatshirt in their backpack that they may use during the day.

Have a wonderful week!

This week has been fun getting to know all of your children. We have been writing, reading and working with our new math program called Eureka Math. We have been making number bonds with the numbers 5 and 10. You will see examples in their homework packet, which will be handed out on Friday.

On Friday at 8:35 we will have a parent meeting. The time was changed so that we could get a translator to help.

After the meeting, any parents that are thinking of going on a field trip this year, should go to the office and fill out a chaperone form. We do not have trips plan at this time, but a chaperone form that has been approved must be submitted before anyone can go on a trip with us. You will need a driver’s license for identification. The form takes 2 to 3 weeks to process. If you submit one at the beginning of the year, it is good for any trips during the school year.

Our class picnic is on June 12th.  Permissions slips will be sent home after the holiday weekend.  We will be going to Hemlock Park at 8:30 a.m. There we will play on the playground and on the basketball court.  Please send a packed lunch with your child.  You are welcome to meet us at the park.  We would love to see you.  Students who wish to use the splash pad must have a parent present to supervise their child.  We are looking forward to a day of fun!
