March is here!

March is here!  We’ve been so lucky to have been able to get the kids out on the playground so much this winter. With the absence of the snow, cross your fingers that we will have an early spring.

Tuesday, March 3, 2020, we will have a Jump for Heart Event. As a reminder, here is the information from Mrs. Breen.

All kindergarten classes will participate in fun physical activity stations for about 1 hour in the gym.  (This day is also a scheduled early release day.)

You can help make this day more enjoyable for your child by doing the following:

  • Ensuring they have a healthy breakfast so they have the energy for the activities
  • Helping them dress appropriately, including:
    • Sneakers
    • Pants that allow for a lot of movement
    • Layers that are labeled so they can wear short sleeves when they get hot
  • Sending in a water bottle that is labeled and doesn’t leak

We look forward to this event and know the kindergarteners will enjoy exercising to stay healthy.

Sincerely,

Amy Breen

Kindergarten Special Subject Teacher

The sight words this week will be so, and no. We will also take this opportunity to review go. In Unit 3 of our Fundations lessons we will continue to build cvc words.

I stated last week that we would be finishing up our unit on subtraction. This was an error. We will be working on subtraction through the end of next week. Sorry for the confusion.

The children had a great time making Washington, D.C. pamphlets as part of our Social Studies curriculum. Warning! They may be asking you for a visit to the Capitol City!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We had a great visit sharing our subtraction stories with Mrs. Sword’s class last week. The children drew their own stories and solved them. They were able to compare their stories and determine how they were similar and different.

 

 

 

 

 

 

ThA big thank you to Mrs. Athanas for reading to our class this week!  The children enjoyed trying to figure out who our Mystery Reader was! We enjoyed listening to you read Who’s On First? and Fox In Socks!
