Dear families,

this week we will study the letter "P". Pressure Pete is our science quirkle. Our color word is purple. We will be acting out The Three Little Pigs, our literature focus. The penny and it's worth will also be introduced. For our cooking experience, we will make Polka Dot Pancackes and Pink Milk on Thursday this week. My Kinderkids have been enjoying finding sight words everywhere! This week's sight word are "look" & "can".

Please help your child learn their full name and birthday including the year. Report card time is just around the corner and your child needs to know their personal information. Thank you.

We will learn about Expectation #5 which states, "We will help one another whenever possible."

This Friday Kindergarten gets to wear our Pajamas to school for letter P!

Last week we studied letter O and we can now spell the name of our state! Ask your child to spell O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A...Impressive for a Kindergartener! We will also learn how to spell blue this week. Wear blue on Wednesday!

We finished our class book, "Kindergartener, Kindergartener, what do you see?" based off of "Brown Bear, Brown Bear". It will be coming home with each child.  

This week our focus is the letter G. Please help your child with letter g (hard g sound as in goat)show n tell for Thursday. Gilbert Gas is our science quirkle. We will do a cool science experiment with gases. We will also read & act out the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears. It will be fun! On the menu for our Friday snack is Gooey Goldfish & Green Grass Juice.

We are learning Expectation #3: "We will use good manners, saying please, thank you, and excuse me, and allow others to go first."

I'm super excited to announce that Kindergarten gets to go on a field trip to the Cyril Pumpkin Patch on October 14! Our PTO has graciously offered to pay for over half of our admission! That means each child will only need to pay $3.00 (due on or before Oct.5) That also includes a small pumpkin that they get to take home.  

I forgot to mention a September birthday-Happy (late)birthday Laila (Sept. 11)

Dear Families,

Thank you for sending snacks & drinks! Because we have a late lunch(12:45), this mid-morning snack helps our tummys to not get so "rumbly". We will have a letter of the week snack that we will make in class each week. Lemon Licks are on the menu for Friday.

We will complete our first class book,"Chicka Chicka Boom Boom! Look Who Is In Our Room!". Each child will have the opportunity to take the book home and share with their families. Please be sure to send these books back the next day so that every child will have a chance to take them home.

We will begin our Phonics/Reading series this week (as well as our Math series). We will start with the letter 'Ll'. We will focus on activities to help reinforces the sound of "L"and we will begin the wonderful process of listening and recognizing individual sounds in words.

Show N Tell- Please help your child draw or cut out something that begins with 'Ll' (it can be a picture from a magazine/computer) to bring to school on Thursday to glue or tape to the provided card. Examples for letter L: lipstick, lock, leaf, lotion, lion, lock.

I will also be introducing a new science character each week. This week we will meet Lindy Light. We will be experimenting with light this week.

Our color word for the week is red. We will learn to spell/read the color words. Remember to wear red on Wednesday.

We will be learning the Eight Expectations for Living. This week we will start with Expectation #1: "We will value one another as unique and special individuals." We have already almost mastered our class creed! (See below.)

Dear Families,

Kindergarten is officially underway! I am proud that my Kinderkids have already learned many new procedures and will continue to learn more in the weeks to come.

Your child has started bringing home their Star folder. Please initial the behavior calendar and look in it each night for notes and/or papers. Your child needs to return it to school every day. I will look in it for notes from you and/or lunch money. You will find the Snack and Events calendar on the back of the folder.

We will be learning our color words (spelling) for the next several weeks. On Wednesdays in Kindergarten, we will be wearing the color of the week. Next week is red. I will send a reminder. We will start our Saxon Phonics program next week. Please return the SUPER KID personal page as soon as possible. We will make a class book from those.

 I will be sending a Monday newsletter every Monday. Please look it over. If it is ever lost or misplaced, you can go to the school website at blued.org -click on the elementary tab, go to El Faculty and click on my name. All of our information will be there. I hope to add pictures soon!

Our class has our own secret facebook page (if you are not added, you cannot see it). If you will send me a friend request-- "Kathy Ferrell Morgan", I can add you to our page.

I am looking forward to a wonderful and successful year!

Have a great week!
Sincerely,

Ms. Morgan
