I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Folders:

Please check your child’s folder everyday. If there is anything that needs to be turned into the office or myself, you can leave it in your child’s folder. I check each folder everyday.

Friday folders:

Last Friday, your child brought home a file folder. This is our classroom envelope where I will send home the class work you child has completed during the week. Please review the contents of the folder with your child. Ask what he/she has learned. It is difficult for a five year old to focus for a whole day. Paperwork is not always that interesting therefore there might be some incomplete worksheets. At this stage I’m not worried about it, as we are still getting into routine. In a few weeks I will let you know if there are any special concerns regarding your child. Please return the empty file folder the following Monday.

Mat Money

There is a $40 Kindergarten Fee that is not included in the tuition. This fee covers the rest time mat and other expenses for the graduation (it will come sooner than we think). Please send the money in an envelope marked with your child’s name by Friday, September 11 in his/her folder.

Homework

Most days there is math homework in their folder but there are also days when I feel that we don’t need homework for various reasons, e.g. we worked hard in class, concept is new, etc. When a math sheet is sent home, please remind your child to write his/her name on it and return it the following day. There will also be a handwriting practice sheet going home with each new letter we work on. This week, your child will bring home a letter Cc worksheet. Please return it the next day. The minibooks that are sent home will be due at the end of the week.

Scholastic Book Order:

Book orders are due on Friday. Orders can be made online. If you’d like to pay by check, please send the order form and payment in your child’s folder.

Student Council Fundraiser:

This Friday is the Student Council’s first fundraiser. Students will be able to wear jeans and a shirt/jersey representing their favorite sports team for $1.00. If you’d like your child to participate, money can be sent in your child’s folder anytime this week.

MATH: Review or complete the math sheet your child is bringing home daily.

BRING! Please send items from home that begin with the letter Cc this week. In class we’ll look at the items, say the name, and listen to the beginning sound.

LANGUAGE: Complete the “C-book” by Friday. Follow these instructions.

Title Page– Write your name, color lower-, and uppercase letter.

    Page 2– Look at the different fonts the letter is written.

Page 3– Cut out lower-and uppercase Cc from magazines and make a collage.

Page 4– First trace the letters with your finger. Then try your best to trace and write with a pencil. Parents, this does not need to be perfect, don’t erase! Your child will have many opportunities

to develop his/her handwriting throughout this school year.

Pages 5-7– Look at the picture, say the word and listen to the beginning sound. Draw more pictures beginning with c, if you wish.

Page 8– Write words that begin with a c sound. You can use the words in the book.

READING: Don’t forget to mark the Reading Calendar that was sent home last week. Please read with your child for 10 minutes or let your child read to you. Fill in the names of the books read on the back.
