September means a new school and new friends.  This week we learned all about apples.  The children learned an apple poem and song and enjoyed listening to books about apples.  Our field trip to Mack’s Apples this week was very exciting.  We filled a class bag full of apples and each child picked out a small pumpkin.  Thanks to our PTA for the apples and pumpkins.  We are looking forward to using our apples to make apple prints and applesauce.  I would like to thank all the chaperones for their help on the trip.  The kindergartners made apple puppets to take home.  

  In Math, we sorted and graphed apples. The children have been learning how to make the numbers 4 and 5.  Our read aloud this week was Plaidypus Lost.  The story is about a plaid platypus that keeps getting lost.  We have been practicing our new sight words: like and I.   We have also been practicing counting syllables (word chunks).  For example, pencil has two syllables and book has one.  The kindergartners enjoyed the puppet Quakers who likes to listen to the beginning sounds in words. 

            Our Parent Night for Kindergarten will take place on October 11th (Thursday) from 6:30 – 7:30PM.  We will have sign-ups for the November Parent Conferences at this time.  I am looking forward to seeing all of you.  Your child is very excited to show off their classroom and all they have accomplished so far.  Please check your child’s October Special Helper Calendar for their show and share day.  The children will each have a special helper day, on this day they may bring a show and share related to the monthly theme.  This month the theme is their favorite book.  Library books need to be returned by Thursday.  Please use the library book bag to protect your books.  I am enjoying teaching your children very much!

  The Coffee Cake orders are due on Friday, October 12th.  Please check out Moose Hill activities via Twitter@Londonderry_mhs.  The kindergarten account is @MH_kindergarten.  My web page will also have my weekly newsletters.  The tab is on the Moose Hill page of the Londonderry School District web page.  Click on academics then kindergarten teachers to find it.
