Today we were introduced to St. Jude! From now until Thanksgiving break we will be raising money for St. Jude. This is also our giving project for the holiday season. Information is in your child’s folder and a Math-a-thon workbook for your child to complete at home. I encourage everyone to participate and give to this worthy cause. Thanks in advance for your help.
The November Lesson Schedule is posted. We will have a Thanksgiving Play on the last day before break, Nov. 21. The play will be short and will begin at 11:30, so you may take your child afterwards. Parents, grandparents and siblings are invited! You will not have to do anything for the play, just enjoy. I have costumes and props that we will use.
Be sure to work on Sight Words daily. We have a new list for 3rd Nine Weeks. These words are NOT ones to sound out but instead have to be memorized, because they do not follow the phonics rules. Your child will become a much better reader with sight words on his/her side!
Please arrive daily between 8:15 and 8:30. If you arrive early, please wait with your child in the orange chairs outside the classroom. I use the time between 8:00 and 8:15 to prepare the room and materials for the day. I may or may not be in the room. We dismiss at 12:15. Thanks!

KINDERGARTEN AT FAITH
Our subject focus in Kindergarten is phonics/reading, with an emphasis on manuscript writing. We also include grade level Social Studies and Science concepts through the year. Students may be assigned different projects relating to a Science or Social Studies topic we are studying at the time.
Students will go to Art class once a week, on Tuesday.
At the beginning of each month I will provide a monthly curriculum schedule on our website. This will allow you to plan for the month; you will know what we will cover in class as well as home assignments. Please be sure to check our website frequently for news, updates, and reminders.
We will have snack time mid morning. You will be responsible for sending your child’s healthy snack and drink. Please just send ONE snack, preferably a “finger food”.
We will have extra special days throughout the year (Holiday events, Field Day, etc…) I am looking forward to meeting you and your family! This year is going to be filled with lots of fun and learning!
