Mrs. Willis' Kindergarten
September in Kindergarten is so much fun! We will be starting off the month by learning about weather and seasons. Later in the month we will study community helpers.
We are also having EPIC! week. This will take place September 3-6. We will be dressing up each day to celebrate being an EPIC! student.
Monday: No School
Tuesday: Dot Day! Wear Polka Dots
Wednesday: Superhero Day! Wear your favorite superhero shirt.
Thursday: Career Day! What do you want to be when you grow up?
Friday: Volunteer Friday! Wear School Colors
Attendance is so important. We are in a weekly competition with the other grade levels to see which grade has the highest attendance percentage. If our grade level wins we will get to hang the attendance banner on our door for the week. Make sure to be here!
Reading: Main Idea and Details
Science: Weather and Seasons
Phonics: Letter Recognition and Letter Sounds
Writing: Becoming Independent Writers
Math: 2D Shapes
Continue to practice your letters once a day. Students will be tested on letter recognition every 2 weeks.
Take home readers will come home with your child starting next week, September 9. Instructions for these will be in your child's folder.
