October Calendar

October Information

It is hard to believe it is October already and a month of school has come and gone!  Library books and guided reading books should start coming home soon.  Please be sure to read them every night and bring them back the next day. 

Here are some dates to remember this month:

·       October 2- Half Day (dismissal at 12:55)
·       October 12- Open house (come see what we do all day!)
·       October 16- No School
·       October 30- fall party

In reading this month we will continue to identify the parts of a book (front cover, back cover, title).  We will also ask and answer questions about books we read.

In math we continue to count and recognize numbers. 

In science we will also continue to learn about the different types of weather and how it changes.

In social studies we will continue to learn about the United States symbols (Bald Eagle, Mount Rushmore, Statue of Liberty, the American Flag.)

Suggestions for helping with math at home

October Homework Calendar

Our First Field Trip 9/29/15

Thursday, September 3, 2015


We will be creating a monthly activity calendar that you can complete at home with your child.  It has some suggested activities that you can do that will reinforce what we have been learning in school. every night for at least 20 minutes!  Also, be sure to practice the letters of the alphabet and recognize numbers!

Field Trip

We will be going to the Black Hills Nature Center on September 28/29 (your child's exact date will depend on which class they are in).  We will be gone from 9:30-1:30, and will eat lunch at school when we get back.  The trip will cost $6 per child.  We will need 1 or 2 chaperones per class, so please talk to your child's teacher if you are interested.  Permission slips will be sent home in a few days.

Welcome to Kindergarten!

We are excited to start a new school year!  Please be sure to sign up for classdojo.  Please see your teacher if you need help doing this.
