Please make sure that your child is dressed for the weather and is wearing appropriate shoes for the playground and PE.
Please let us know (phone call or email) if your child is going to be absent or late to school, or if you will be picking your child up early. Please contact your child's classroom directly (see individual teacher pages for contact information).
Please be reminded that we take every precaution to ensure that children do not share germs and spread sickness. You can help us in this effort by keeping your child home if he/she is not feeling well. Please refer to the district wellness policy or contact Nurse Patti or your child's teacher if you have questions.
Reading We are learning how to differentiate between important events in a story and minor details. We are also starting to learn beginning reading strategies.
We are learning how to write narrative stories. We tell a story through drawing a picture, writing words of a story, and adding details. We are learning how to break words into sounds and record the sounds we hear when we don't know how to spell a word. We are also beginning to learn sight words: went, to, the, like, I
Math We are learning about counting and how to break numbers into different parts (i.e. 5 can be broken into 2 and 3, etc). We are practicing number formation. We are also practicing using different strategies to solve word problems.
We are learning all about Kindergarten and Estes Hills. We are practicing our school rules: Be safe, be respectful, and be a learner. We are talking about what each of those rules looks like. We are also learning about how to resolve conflicts with our friends.
In science, we have started Unit 1, "Understanding Matter." We are talking about ways to describe matter, for example, "rigid vs. flexible." and different states of matter.
We will talk about what it means to be a citizen - at school and in our Chapel Hill community. We will learn about community resources by visiting the library and the fire station.
