Happy New Year!

I hope you thoroughly enjoyed the winter break with your family!  Here is what you need to know for the upcoming week in our classroom;

Welcome Betty Bunny to Room 114!

This is one of our favorite characters, named Betty Bunny. She is quite a “handful!” Ask your child about if being a handful is a good thing or not?   Betty Bunny will be visiting your house sometime soon. Please take good care of Betty and make sure she is returned the next school day along with the book and completed journal. Enjoy!

Weekly Homework:  Since the ABC books are all complete, your child will receive two activity sheets in their red folder every Monday and will need have both completed by Friday.  This week’s focus will be on the “long a” sound.  Thank you for supporting your child’s learning at home.  This not only helps with practicing literacy skills but teaching responsibility and time management as well.

Words of the Week:  our  play

Assessments:  We are planning on taking the NWEA Reading test on Tuesday, January 9th.  I will be administering individual assessments during Daily 5 this week and therefore will not be seeing reading groups.  During this time, Raz-kids is a great way for your child to continue practicing reading or listening to books at their level.

Science:  We will be introducing our new Weather unit on Wednesday.

Social Studies:  We will start our History unit this week.  A timeline project will be sent home on Wednesday, January 10 and will be due on Thursday, January 25th.  This project will be modeled at school so your child will be able to show you what needs to be done.  This kindergarten project is always a favorite!

Field Trip Update:  We have rescheduled our Kroger/Lifetime field trip for Wednesday, January 24th.  If you are interested in being a chaperone, please email me or leave a comment below.  Fingers crossed for good traveling weather.

Monday:  Return Nightly Literacy Homework!  Wear gym shoes and clothes appropriate for art.

Happy Holidays from the Polar Express

Dear Families,

Our kindergartners sure were lucky to come to school today!  Here is why!

This morning the hallways of Lindbergh Elementary were filled with the aroma of delicious smelling hot chocolate.  You could trace the aroma coming from Room 114.    Our fantastic team of Homeroom Parents:  Amirah’s mom, Mia’s mom, Mohamad’ s mom and Thomas’s mom threw an amazing party.  They organized five different stations for the students to visit.  These were the fun-filled areas: the ornament station, the reindeer food station, the train station,  the pancake and hot cocoa bar, and the jingle bell toss.   Take the look at the fun!

Thank you to all the parents who were able to come and help us before, during and after the party.  Thank you to all the families who sent in $3.00 to help cover the cost of the party materials.

Lastly, I am very appreciative of all the wonderful and generous gifts that were sent in today.  I love seeing how excited these kindergartners were while the gifts were being opened.

Have a great winter break with your family!

Ms. Wright

Our Field Trip was Cancelled!

Hi Families,

Due to the expected snow, the district cancelled our bus for today’s field trip.  So soon as we reschedule it, I will let you know.

Also, in case you didn’t receive a phone call from the Dearborn Public Schools, you may pick up your child before dismissal time today and it will be considered an excused absence.  Otherwise, school is still in session.

Stay warm and save!
