We had a great end to our second week of school! Our t-shirts arrived so the children got a big surprise with a kindergarten t-shirt! This is a great t-shirt for Friday Spirit Days! Be sure to check out the class picture on our homepage of almost everyone in our class!
Today I sent home a corrected class list. Please be sure to note that No. 11 was cut off when I printed it, so today I sent home the whole class list. You can use this class list to find the names of the children in the pictures on our photo page. This will help you in talking with your child about their classmates and in learning their names. I will be adding more pictures to the photo page this weekend!
Today we learned more about our Bear Necessities. We discussed including others in our work and play. We read a wonderful book with just a few words, a few pictures, but a meaningful story. Ask me to tell you about the book Say Hello, by Jack and Michael Foreman. This book tells the story of a little boy who is left out of play. A four-legged friend helps the boy, and he finds out that when someone is left out, it doesn't take much to say hello!
We opened more literacy stations today. We opened the word station, writing station and the technology station. The children did a great job working with each other quietly. Next week we will open more stations and I will introduce a work board that will help children move through different stations.
Be sure to check back to our website later this weekend for more updates to the website. I will be adding information from Back to School NIght for those who missed attending.
Enjoy the long weekend!
