  • Spring Break

    It's hard to believe it's Spring Break! The school year is passing quickly. While we have learned much already, we still have a ways to go to reach our "End in mind"--- being ready for first grade! Rest up! Enjoy some family time----- "Sharpen Your Saw"! Then come back April 10th ready to "Put First Things First" and work hard! Have fun but most importantly, be safe!

  • Week of March 16, 2017

    Progress Reports for the 3rd 9 weeks were sent home this week. It's hard to believe that we have already completed 3/4s of the school year! In our ELA block we have been reading about children in the past and present. We have compared and contrasted how life is now for children compared to those of the past. We speculated about what life might be like in the future for "our" grandchildren" when we are "grandparents! In math, we continue to work on addition but have also began talking about subtraction. Kindergarten students are also busy researching different animals to write reports on.

  • March 3,2017

    Kindergarten students enjoyed celebrating READ ACROSS AMERICA this week! We especially enjoyed "Wacky Wednesday" and seeing all the crazy way our schoolmates were dressed! We read lots of stories by Dr. Suess and decided he was a fantastic author.

    We have been working really hard on learning the /sh/, /th/, and /ch/ diagraphs. We enjoyed siniging the /sh/ song with the "Quiet Girl", "Blowing Raspberries" for the /th/ song, and "Choo,Choo,Choo" for the /ch/ song.

    In math, we are becoming Number Bond experts! Our goal is to become so good at Number Bonds that we can teach everyone all about them during one of our "Colonel Chat" programs on You Tube!

  • February 6-10

    Our class has been very busy learning to read with expession! We are practicing so that we don't sound like robots when we read because that is very boring!!

    We are also working on our writing skills. We had a guest  teacher this week, Mrs. Nancy Huston from GRREC, who read us a story about THE TOWN MOUSE AND THE COUNTRY MOUSE. After reading and discussing the story, we wrote an opinion piece about which place we though was the best to live and why. We will be writing more opinion pieces in the coming weeks.

    In math we are learning to compose and decompose numbers. We did a really fun activity using conversation hearts to show that we can decompose the number 10.

  • 100th Day!!!!

    We celebrated our 100th day of school on Friday, January 27! We made special hats to wear, counted by tens to 100, and put the count by ten numbers in order. Our favorite activity though was making a special 100 day trail mix for snack. We used 10 different ingredients and counted out 10 pieces of each one to add to our baggy. After our special class, we all enjoyed eating the snack. We are very proud of ourselves for being 100 days smarter and getting closer to reaching our goal of being ready for first grade!!!

  • January 9

    I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We have lots to accomplish this semester as we continue to "Begin with the end in mind" and get ready for first grade! Be sure to help your child practice the word ring in their baggy EVERY night and also read ALL books in the baggy at least twice each! Remember, practice makes perfect!

    We are very fortunate to have Ms. Evelyn ,who is a student teacher from Lindsey Wilson, with us for the next couple of weeks. Ms. Evelyn will be teaching math this week and a unit over weather next week.

  • December 5-9,2016

    Our kindergarten class has been working very hard to meet our goal of being prepared for first grade! We are continuing to work on letter and sound recognition and reading our "popcorn" words. This week our focus is on letter Ff and we have added the words "we", "you", and "it" to our word ring. Our number for this week is 13.As always, we need you to synergize with us and help us meet that goal of being first grade ready! You can do this by making sure we go over our word ring,letter ring,and read the books in our baggy EVERY night Monday- Thursday! Don't forget our field trip this Thursday, December 8 to Bowling Green to see the play A MAGIC TREEHOUSE-- A GHOST TALE FOR MR. DICKENS JR. Please dress your child in purple and be sure they have on comfortable shoes and a warm coat--- we may have to stand outside a bit before the play begins.

  • Strategies
    How Can I Help At Home? This post is to inform you of a few strategies to use at home to help your child achieve in school. 1. Have your child to read letters of the alphabet to you whenever they appear in public places. For example, if you are at RIte-Aid ask them to tell you the letters on the building. Ask them to tell you what letters are capitlized. Ask them to tell you what letters are vowels. 2. Have your child to count for you. Put the objects that they are counting in a "scattered" pattern. Put the object in a circular pattern. Reinforce the fact that the last number they say tells them how many is in the group. 3. Give your child an age appropriate chore such as setting the table, folding towels/wash rags, or loading the dishwasher. This teaches them RESPONSIBILITY. This is important for children to learn.
  • Kindergarten Mission Statement

    Our school is in the process of trying to become a "Lighthouse School" through the Leader In Me Intiative. One of the criteria for becoming a "Lighthouse School" is having a school mission statement as well as a class mission statement. Our school has a mssion statement which we recite together every morning during announcements. Our kindergarten classes decided to synergize and work together to create a kindergarten mission statement. All three classes met together in Ms. Talara's room. We reviewed the school mission statement and then with guidance from Mrs. Meredith, Ms. Talara, and Mrs. Hardy, we wrote our kindergarten mission statement. We are in the process of creating a special display in the hallway of our mission statement. We invite you to stop by any time you are in the building and see it. In the meantime, you will find  our mission statement listed below.

    "Our kindergarten class WILL be leaders. We WILL practice the 7 Habits. We WILL begin with the end in mind and be ready for first grade!"

  • August 26, 2016

    We have had a great first 13 days of school! We have had Ms.Hannah Hopper from Lindsey Wilson doing her  practicum student teaching in our classroom. Ms. Hannah has been a great help to us as we have worked on learning our routines and procedures for the year. Ms. Hannah will be leaving us now and beginning her first student teaching placement. We will miss her but know she will do an excellent job!

    Our school is working hard to become a Lighthouse School through The Leader In Me. As a result, our kindergarten class has worked very hard to learn the first 2 habits. Habit 1 is "Be proactive. I'm in charge of me." Habit 2 is "Begin with the End in Mind. Have a plan.' Ask your child to tell you about these first 2 habits, what they are really mean, as well as show you the hand motions for them.

    In the coming weeks, we will focus on Habit 3 which is "Put first things First. Work then play.' as well as Habit 4 which states "Think Win-Win. I win, you win, we win".

    Our reading focus is letter naming and letter sounds and also beginning to recognize the color words as sight words or as we like to call them "popcorn words".

    In math, our focus is on counting and number recognition.
