Hello Families =)
Happy Friday! The kids made it through their first full week, and they are all adjusting very well to the busy schedule here in kindergarten! We had a volunteer aid start this week to help out in the classroom for a couple of hours each day. Everyone loves her, and her name is Carla Hernandez (Miss Hernandez). We are very happy she is in here to help us as we transition into being big kindergarteners!
This week, we continued to build stamina during writing, reading, and math. We have not began science because we have been concentrating on our social studies unit of getting along and citizenship. Building a safe classroom environment is so important so each child will not be afraid to take risks. We learn best when we are comfortable taking risks.
Next week will look a lot like this week. Building a safe learning environment and getting to know the kids as learners takes about six weeks.
I have had some parents ask if they can do anything to help. We would love donations for our treasure box (toys) if you are ever at the Dollar Store or somewhere affordable that sells little things in bulk. The kids love visiting the treasure box on fun Fridays!
Thank for everything you do for us! I hope you have a very relaxing weekend!
