Homework
The words for this week as as follows: go, from, yellow, blue, green, what, said, was, where, come. Sight Word Notebooks can stay home until Friday.Promotion
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) or 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.

Field Trip
Thank you to the parents that volunteered their time and joined us on our field trip last week! It was such a unique experience for the students, enjoying Dr. Seuss stories in a different medium!

This week in Kindergarten…
English Language Arts
We will read the story “Old MacDonald had a Workshop.” It is about a twist on a classic story! This is a fantasy text that will be looking at character and setting.

Mathematics
We are learning about time!
What you can do at home: Have students try to figure out what time it is, give them a time that you need to leave and have them be “time keeper,” or practice counting by 5 to 60 to show the minutes on a clock.

Science
Kindergarten welcomed 12 baby chicks this week! We will have the chicks in our care for just one more week before they go back to their home at a farm! It has been such a great journey and wonderful learning experience!

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, where, come

REMINDERS
– Homework is due on FRIDAY each week. Remember to bring sight word journals every Friday. 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.
