Dear KA Families,

Kindergarten continues to be going very well and all students are working very hard.  Please follow the homework page at home to reinforce what we are learning in school. Here are a few things we are learning in KA.

In RELIGION this week we are continuing to learn about God as the creator, who made everything from nothing, as well as about angels, who are persons created by God without bodies.  Our Prayer this week is the Guardian Angel Prayer:

Angel of God

My guardian dear

To Whom His love

Commits me here

Ever this day

Be at my side

To light and guard

To rule and guide. Amen

In READING we are continuing to work on the letter ‘Oo.’  We are learning the letter O with our super kid Oswald. In writing we are practicing how to hold the pencil and how to make the different lines that we will use for writing and numbers.  We will begin our spelling program in November.

In MATH we are learning about Geometry and Patterns.  Student’s will identify various three-dimensional (solid) figures, identify various two-dimensional (plane) figures, identify and make patterns, and solve problems by finding a pattern.  Vocabulary terms to review are same, different, small, and big. New vocabulary words are solid figure, cylinder, cone, sphere, cube, rectangular prism, stack, roll, slide, plane figure, square, circle, rectangle, triangle, corner, side, color pattern, shape pattern, size pattern, pattern rule, and growing pattern.  Please follow along the homework page throughout the week for math.

In SCIENCE we are learning about Making and Recording Observations by Drawing and Labeling.  Our vocabulary words are Label, Observe, and Details.

Social Studies we are learning about Growth Mindset.  Start practicing how to write their full name, phone number, and address.  Also, talk about the calendar, seasons, and weather.

We are encouraged to be PEACEMAKERS at Saint Michael. Students have started earning “Kindness Tickets.”  It is a joy to see them help a classmate or offer applause to a student who has done a good job. I am so excited to see this kindness grow in the students throughout the year!

Our upcoming project is going to be a Farm Research and Writing Project.  This will mostly be done in school. I will let you know if anything needs to be completed at home.

Reminders

  • Our Field Trip Form has been given out, please fill out and return by Thursday, October 25th.  Please email me or write me a note if you are interested in chaperoning for the field trip. Student’s may only go on the field trip if they have handed in their forms and the money due.  They will need a brown bag lunch to take for the day.
  • Please bring in canned goods throughout the month of October.  We will be working with our prayer partners in sixth grade as a team to try and bring in the most items.  This is a great opportunity to teach our students about the importance of giving to people in need.
  • The Tiny Saints order forms are due Wednesday, October 31st.  This money helps
  • Kindergarten ONLY is allowed to dress up for Halloween.  Student’s must wear costumes that are appropriate for school.
  • Check your student’s folder and backpack every day, and review with them any work sent home.  This will help them see the importance of organization and completing work on time.
  • Now that it is finally Fall, please label and pack your student’s warm clothes daily.  The classroom gets cold and hot throughout the day, so help them be prepared for all weather.  Remember they cannot wear non-uniform items anywhere other then outside and in our classroom.
  • Ordering Scholastic books online with our class code gives our classroom points to be able to apply towards our classroom library.  KA’s Scholastic Book Code is PCTFF at Scholastic Book Club Website
  • Pack healthy and peanut free snacks for your children to bring to school every day.  No candy and please limit the sugar.
  • Pack your child’s lunch bag every day, regardless of whether or not he/she is having hot lunch they should bring their lunch bag.  This way they can keep any leftovers from lunch in their lunch bag and I let them eat every day before they go home during KBAR.
