Greetings families of room 111!
We did it! We survived our first week of kindergarten. Whew, it was a hot one. Well let me officially welcome you to my blog and ask that you reply “hello Mrs. Ross” if you have gotten this post today at your nearest convenience. I just want to make sure that you are getting the up to date important information each week. As we head into our first whole week here is what you need to know! Please make sure you child brings their blue homework folder from Mrs. Ross every day and also a backpack/lunch every day! School begins at 8:00am and ends at 3:00pm each day at door 10. If you ever need to pick up your child early please remember to go to the office and have them CALL down to have your child meet you there. Also, make sure your child wears the proper gym clothes on Friday this week!
In addition, I would like to extend a HUGE THANK YOU to families that have sent in supplies for their child and/or dry erase markers, pencils, wipes for the class etc. If you would still like to donate supplies we’d greatly appreciate it 🙂
Week ahead at a glance: We will begin to slowly introduce the expectations and daily routines for Writer’s Workshop, Daily 5 Literacy program (Read to Self) and Math Workshop. Be sure to ask your child about these content areas and how it is going. We will be tracking our “stamina” for Daily 5 Read-to-Self so make sure to ask how many minutes we have! We will also begin building our word wall immediately with our names and a few sight words this week. We will be on the lookout for the letter “s” everywhere so help your child find it at home and discuss what it sounds like! We will enjoy the poem the “Itsy Bitsy Spider”!
It is going to be a VERY busy week! Thank you very much for meeting with me last week during soft start. You have helped give me great insight about where to begin with your child and I thank you for your time!
Monday: No school (I hope you had a wonderful long weekend and holiday) We usually go to gym class on Mondays. Remember gym shoes for Friday!
Tuesday: First full day! Remember to get a great sleep and pack a lunch/bring your money. Today we will go to music and art class. Please make sure your child brings their homework folder every day. We are also going to introduce our PBIS school expectations this week and will place the paper in the back of the homework folders. Please discuss your child’s behavior every night and make sure to initial it at the close of each week.
Wednesday: Enrichment (computer class) Also, please join us Wednesday, September 14th from 4:00pm to 5:30pm!
Thursday: Today we will go to music
Friday: Today we will have gym again so please remember to dress accordingly and wear the proper gym shoes!
