Dear room 107 families,

Greetings! Just a reminder that Friday Kinders will NOT have class. And tomorrow, Thursday Sept 21, wear a pink shirt for our “Peace” picture.

***Raz-kids- I have not sent out the log-in information yet. I had to get the info from Mrs. Ross. As it is under her name. Once I enter in all the required information I will send the information needed through the red take home folders. I hope I can do this within the next couple days!***

Homework clarification: I have sent home some GREAT resources to help you do homework this year in a fun way! Let me be a little more clear about expectations as to not overwhelm your little ones. Homework should be meaningful and consistent in Kdg but NOT HOURS 🙂 Here are my expectations for you:

  1. Reading: 10-20 minutes a night (kdg 10/ 1st 20) of reading a night ( always from Raz-kids OR Reading packs when your child begins a reading group. If they are in a letter group that counts for “reading too”)
  2.  Math: 10-20 minutes a night “playing” games sent home on Mondays. These are for you to keep and they will come home on card stock. My suggestion to make it fun and exciting is to put them into sheet protectors and either a binder at home, large zip lock baggie, or a math folder/Tupperware box to keep altogether (whatever works for you!). This way your child can build up a HUGE resource of CCSS math games to constantly have fun and review math skills.

*I hope this helps make the kiddos expectations clear and not stressful! Remember it’s only September and in school right now it’s all about introduction and procedure so we too are taking “baby steps” toward all these structures and goals! We do what we can during the allotted time and make sure we have the “downtime” we need during the day to stay a float! I am a firm believer in learning through meaning and fun so I hope I have given you enough options to work with your child on these goals 🙂

Hope this message finds you all well and again I thank you in advance for all for your help you give with these amazing children!
