The First Week of School 2010-2011

Wow! What a wonderful week. It was so exciting to meet all of our new kindergarteners. I just love their enthusiasm and excitement about going to school. The first few days focused on completing assessments and learning some of the fundamentals of going to school. We also practiced matching in math on Friday. I am so impressed by how many students are already experts at matching!

Next week we will begin introducing a letter each day--what it looks like, the sound(s) it makes, and how to write it. We will continue matching and begin sorting in math. We will also learn the school rules and routines.

Thank you to all of the families who sent in items from our wish list! These supplies will be used in our classroom throughout the year.

Just a reminder...the first P.T.O. meeting is on Tuesday. I hope to see you there!

Have a wonderful weekend!
