Thank you to all the parents that completed the promotion survey. Based on the responses, Kindergarten students are being asked to wear all White Dresses (Girls) and White Button down long sleeve shirts with Khaki Pants (boys). The theme will be “Oh, to First Grade We Will Go.”As a reminder, the promotion will be held in the cafeteria on Wednesday, June 7 from 8:30-10:00am. Tickets will be sent home on Monday, June 5 based on the survey responses. Remember, tickets should include siblings that are in the building. This will act as their pass to leave class. If you need to make changes to your ticket count, please contact Ms. Santiago at jlsantiago@cmitelementary.org and we will do our best to accommodate.

This week in Kindergarten…
English Language Arts
We will read the story “The Little Engine that Could.” It is the classic story of a little blue engine who was able to complete a mission that others couldn’t or refused! We will be discussing retelling a story in sequence. We will also be reading words having the medial U sound.

We are learning about money! We will identify different coins and their worth. Additionally, we will be counting money and closing out with determining if we have enough money to make purchases!
What you can do at home: take out your change and encourage your scholar to identify the coins and even try counting how much money there is! (Utilize their knowledge of counting by 5’s and 10’s for nickels and dimes.)

We will be observing the life cycle of a butterfly in real time! Students will watch as our classroom caterpillars go through the metamorphosis stages to become a butterfly.
Towards the end of the week, we will be receiving our special visitors who will be staying with us for a month! Hint: They incubate in an egg! 😉 Once our vistors arrive, scholars will spend each day observing and recording their observations. Scholars will also have the opportunity to hold and care for these visitors!

High Frequency Words
Here are our sight words we have learned so far. Remember to practice reading and writing these words regularly! (When reading at home, if you see these words, have your child point it out!) All of the words we will learn this year are available on our grade level website under “Sight Words.”

I, am, little, to, a, have, is, the, we, my, like, he, for, me, with, she, see, look, they, you, of, are, that, do, one, two, three, four, five, here, go, from, yellow, blue, green, what, said, was

– Homework is due on FRIDAY each week. Remember to look for their new homework packet on Fridays. Homework that is not submitted by the due date will be given a ZERO.
– Please read regularly! Remember that just 20 minutes a day can boost your child’s reading levels! Reading logs are due at the end of the month and will be given a zero if blank or missing from your child’s folder.
– Please remember to send an extra pair of uniform clothes to keep in your child’s cubbie at school in the event of accidents or spills.
