Dear Kindergarten Families,
October already? It is hard to believe that we have been in kindergarten for 17 days! In this time, our students have become masters of their routine. They have come to know their peers, their teachers, and their school. We are learning to work as a team. We are cruising on Reading Street, and enjoying special literacy RTI (Response to Intervention) blocks weekly. We are writing! We are building number sense, and subitizing (“instantly seeing how many”) during math lessons. We are also scientists, actively exploring the world around us, using our five senses. In social studies, we explore how our school is a community that plays, works, and learns together. We are practicing Rules for Listening during Second Step lessons. We are “filling buckets” at MSKC, sharing our kindness. We are a busy bunch that loves to learn!
We look forward to several special events during the month of October. There is no school on Monday, October 14th, in observance of Columbus Day. Please recall that Wednesday, October 23rd, is an early dismissal day for students, due to professional development for teachers. You won’t want to miss our Literacy Event for parents and guardians on October 8th, or our 6th Annual Halloween Hootenanny on October 25th! Please see our Hootenanny schedule in our October newsletter. Have a wonderful October!
