Conferences


Student led Conferences are Thursday, November 16

All Kindergarten families should have received an email from me through SighUpGenius to schedule a conference. If you have not received one or are having difficulties doing so please get in touch with me. My goal is to meet with each family. SignUpGenius will send you a reminder email 2 days prior to your conference. Please remember that your child along with me will be leading the conference. It is helpful if siblings do not attend as this is your kindergartners time to shine. Thank you for your understanding.

Kindergarten Sight Word List


Writing Workshop

We have started a new unit in writing called Looking Closely. We are observing things from nature such as rocks, seashells, leaves, pinecones, acorns, etc. First we draw our artifact and make it as realistic as possible. Then we brainstormed words that describe them. Scientific writers then label and write sentences that show exactly what we drew. Young writers really seem to be enjoying this style of writing! 

We are also learning sight words such as: the, is, my, we, a, I, etc. to help with our writing. Please remember all kindergarten sight words are found under the writing and spelling and vocabulary tabs on the blog. Reviewing those at home with help your child in reading and writing.

Visit by the Perloff's

Dave and Sandy Perloff came to see us last Thursday. This lovely couple created the Perloff foundation which donated our BeeBots to our classroom and the 3D printers to our school. They enjoy visiting the classrooms and seeing the impact their generosity has on young learners.
