   Class Activities

            Bb is for bats and bears.  The kindergartners enjoyed the story, Stellaluna.  This is the story of a baby bat that grows up with a bird family.  At the end of the story, Stellaluna is reunited with her mother.  We made a bat to fly home.  The story, Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?  was read to the students followed with the children creating a Brown Bear book.   On Friday, we had a Teddy Bear picnic.  We graphed bears by color, ate with our bears and wrote all about our stuffed animal.  In Math, we have started Chapter 2, we are learning about numbers 6 – 10.  We made a class graph to see if we had more boys or girls in our kindergarten room.  The kindergarteners did a beautiful job in their handwriting books on the upper and lowercase Bb.  I am sending home a handwriting sheet for your child to practice.  If your child brings back this sheet, they will receive a sticker.  Homework is not mandatory.  We are encouraging the children to use the lowercase letters we have learned so far when writing their names.  Our new sight word is see. Help your child find this word in books and environmental print. The children made beautiful Fall trees for our bulletin board. We are learning a song for our Halloween Parade.
