Week of 11-29-2015

Welcome back room 111!

I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing week with family and friends! I was so happy to be home with my family and I am very thankful for the time. Here is what is happening in kindergarten this week:

Letter Study: L l and Ff

Word Studies: said, in

Numbers: Writing all numbers from 1-20


Monday: Homework packets are due! New homework packets will be handed out. Please return them next Monday. PBIS smilie faces are due tomorrow. Please make sure they are all signed and returned!

Tuesday: New PBIS smilie sheets go out tonight!

Things to work on at school and home:

Reading: Retelling stories in order from beginning, middle to end and also narrative elements (characters, settings, problems and solutions)

Math: Counting and Cardinality. This week we will practice counting to 100 by 1s and 10s, counting from any number other than 1, reading and writing numbers to 10 (20 if your child can do it!), counting objects with one to one matching and counting out a set of objects and telling the amount. These are great things to do at home…count, count, count!

Social Studies: This week we will discuss “Goods and Services” and how they can be bought to satisfy our needs and wants. In addition, what is a trade? Are all trades fair?

Science: Continue Pushes and Pulls!

Here is a picture of Bashir Baiz (sent in by mom) pulling a shopping cart at Target over the break. Thank you Bashir, great job! If anyone else has pictures of their child pulling or pushing please email us at rossm1@dearbornschools.org and we will share it on the blog!

  1. Good Afternoon Mrs. Ross,
    I hope you had a wonderful short break with family and friend as well. I just have a question about the parent meeting this week. what time is the parent meeting on December 2nd?. please let me know to inform my Director that i am coming late on that day ( if it is in the morning).

    Thank you so much,

    • Hi there! Let me ask for you. It is not a kindergarten meeting, but one run by the resource teachers for all elementary students. It is usually while we are teaching in the morning. I’ll get back to you later tonight or early tomorrow morning!
