Classroom Activities

            Aa is for autumn and apples.  This week we concentrated on the letter Aa.  We started working in our handwriting books and learned how to make the upper and lowercase Aa.  The Magic C Bunny came to visit and showed us how to make the lowercase c turn magically into the lowercase a.  A handwriting sheet is being sent home today for your child to practice.  If your children bring this homework assignment back to school, they will receive a sticker.  Your kindergartner will get handwriting homework every Friday on the letter of the week.  Thank you for your support in this area.  We learned the song “Where do you start your letters?   At the top!” and visited Mat Man again.  Mat Man reinforces our drawing of ourselves using 10 body parts.  The children started their ABC journals.  In our Math Program, we learned how to make the numeral 6 and how to find subtle differences in pictures.  We listened to Ten Apples up on Top by Dr. Seuss and tried to stack ten apples!  We used our sight words I, like and see in a game with tossing cubes.  Please have your children practice the take home book Lunch with you.  Encourage them to point to each word as they read.  The Kindergartners listened to a story about Johnny Appleseed.  We made a Johnny Appleseed pot hat and completed a sequencing paper. 

 Upcoming Events

 Kindergarten Picture retakes will be on Friday, October 12th.  Check out Moose Hill activities via Twitter@Londonderry.mhs.  The kindergarten account is @MH_kindergarten.  We do not have school on October 8th (Columbus Day).  The children are already talking about Halloween.  We will have a Halloween parade and party on Wednesday, October 31st.  Some children are easily frightened, so we ask that costumes are not scary or violent.  The children are not allowed to wear masks or make-up.  Our Open House Night will be held on October 13th (Thursday) between 6:30 and 7:30PM.  The PTA fundraiser orders are due October 12th (Friday).  Please keep your pink copy.   I enjoy teaching your children every day.  They are a bright ray of sunshine in my classroom.   Have a super weekend!
