We have been busy in Kindergarten. We can't believe that December is here!
In Language, the students have been writing sentences. Please encourage your child to write at home! When writing in their journals at school, they think about what they want to write, draw a picture, and then write using letters, words and scribble writing. Encourage your child to sound out unknown words and write what they hear. We are now looking at the letter M, D and G.
In Math , they have been continuing with Numeracy and one to one correspondence. The students have also been focusing on using numbers 0 to 10 (quantities and number recognition). Please incorporate numbers in everyday activities at home. In December, we will continue to work with numbers to 10 and beyond.
It is now cold outside and we are outside for up to forty minutes at a time. The children need hats, mittens, warm jackets and boots. We encourage the students to dress themselves on their own as much as possible and to ask for help if needed.
We will be having a Craft-o-rama day where parents will volunteer to come in and share with the students a simple craft. Parents are asked to bring in their own material for the craft. The date for this event will take place on Thursday December 14th , at 1:15. Please let us know if you are available.
We are also having a Christmas concert on December 19th at 2:30 pm. We hope you can all attend as all the kindergarten classes have been practising many songs.
Wishing you and your families a wonderful Christmas!
Mrs. Awad & Mrs. Ryan
