Classroom Activities

            Cc is for cats, caps and cookies.  This week we learned all about the letter Cc.  Mr. C came to visit this week with his colossal cap.   The story, Caps for Sale was a big hit!  The children made their own peddler and counted his caps.  Your child is doing nicely making his/her upper and lowercase letters in their handwriting books.  These books will be shared with you at Parent Conferences in November.  The letter Cc handwriting sheet is being sent home today.  We are encouraging the children to use the lowercase letters we have learned so far when writing their names.  We are continuing to work on Chapter 2 in our Math Program which focuses on the numbers 6-10.   The children discovered what a number line is.  We found a few number lines in our classroom and made our own number lines with a partner.    The read aloud story this week was Dot the Fire Dog.   We practiced our new sight words:  have and see.  We have been practicing a fall song for our upcoming Halloween parade.  On Thursday, we talked about Fire Safety and made Dot the fire dog headbands. 

What’s Coming Up?

 Photo orders are due October 17th.  Picture retakes will occur on October 19th (Friday). Parent Conferences are November 15th and 16th.  There is no school on these days for the kindergartners.  This is a valuable meeting and should not be missed.  If you did not sign up for a conference at our Open House, please email me to schedule a time (bcurro@londonderry.org).  We are so glad that so many families could join us for the Open House last night.  Our Halloween party is on Wednesday, October 31st.  There will be a parade and song for you to enjoy.  Our morning parade is at 9:30 AM and the afternoon parade is at 1:15 PM.   Children should bring their costumes with them to school on that day (either in a bag or in their backpack).  Please refrain from dressing your child in scary costumes and masks.  A special thank you to our classroom volunteers, we love having you come in to help!   Buy the PTA Fire Truck Raffle tickets by October 15th.    Check us out via Twitter@Londonderry_mhs.  The Kindergarten account is @MH_kindergarten.

             Have a super weekend!
