We made a VIDEO

Yesterday and today we made videos of how to line up and how to clean up after choice time. The kiddos did a GREAT job!

Blogger of the Day....Amina

We listened to a story and it was fun. We drew a picture of an animal and labeled it.

Letter A and B Books

The kiddos are bringing home another book today. Please let them read it to you by using 1:1 matching. They should point to each word with their finger UNDER the word. Please help them if they get stuck. If they did not bring back their "A" book from yesterday please bring back BOTH books tomorrow. We will be adding these books to our Book Baskets for Independent Reading. : )

We will be eating lunch everyday at 12:40. Please make sure you send in a healthy snack. OPE adopted a Healthy Snacks at Oakley Park for healthy hearts. So, no cookies, fruit snacks, candy, chips, or treats. You CAN send in veggies, fruit, cheese/crackers, and yogurt. Thank you for saving the sugary treats and other yummies for their lunch box. : )

Water Bottles

ALL water bottles must have a pop top or security lid and not just open. We have had some spills with the regular plastic water bottles. So, please send in only ones with pop tops or a resusable water bottle with a lid and straw. Thank you for your support!

Math Workshop

Today we did two rotations in Math Workshop. We did Math in Writing and practiced our numbers and Math Games. We also played online games using Everyday Math's website. The kids loved playing Top It.

Scholastic Book Orders

The kiddos are bringing home a Scholastic Book Order. You can order online per the instructions or send in your order and money by October 10, 2014.

Blogger of the Day...Amelia

We all had a great day in kindergarten working with our new friends. We are bringing home a book called, "A is for....". Please read with kids and bring back tomorrow for our book boxes.

Love these kiddos!

What a GREAT first week!

I am SO proud of the kiddos!  We had a wonderful first week and they are learning the routines, school expectations, and how school works.  I am sure they are TIRED and maybe not themselves totally. We worked hard and played some, but had four full days of work and no down time.  I am sure some of them would have loved a nap, but no time for naps in our busy schedule.  Give them an extra hug because they ROCKED kindergarten this week!  I am looking forward to seeing all of you at Curriculum Night on Thursday at 6:00pm.  Remember it is for PARENTS ONLY.  This is a time for you to see how our day runs and how we can support each other!  Have a great weekend!!!

PE Shoes

If you have not sent in PE shoes to keep at school, please do so as soon as possible. Some of our friends did not have them for today and could not participate in the activities. Thank you SO much for your help.
