Planting our Kinder “Garden”

We were blessed to have a raised garden bed built for us in the courtyard this year.  We went outside and planted our class’ section today!!!  We talked about all of the things seeds need to grow: Soil, sun, water, and air.  Everyone got a glove and had a specific job to do in the process.  We successfully planted some wildflower seeds and are very excited to watch them grow as we water and care for them!!!

Exciting Times in Kindergarten!!

Happy February to everyone!!!  I am so excited to be back with your sweet babies and to see all that they have learned while I have been out!!  I absolutely cannot believe how quickly this school year is flying by.  Hold on Mama’s and Daddy’s and enjoy every moment, because May will be here before you know it!!!

Our focus is now “getting ready for first grade”!!!  We are working hard to build and practice our skills as well as build the stamina necessary to be successful next year!!!  I hope that you are hearing all about the exciting things we are doing in our classroom each day.  It is so important to engage your child in discussions about his/her learning!!  Please make sure that you are doing the homework I am sending home at least three times during the week and returning it for a prize!!  It directly reinforces our explicit phonics lessons, and helps to build our early blending and reading skills.  Your child should also be bringing home literacy bags books on his/her “just right” reading level.  When they have logged 10 of these books they get to bring it back for a prize!!  Please reference the letter that came home about ways to read with your child and let me know if you have any questions about anything!!!

I am attaching pics of our babies doing some word blending on our Promethean board!!  Enjoy!!!  🙂
