“OLL's challenging and hands-on science program more than prepared my daughter for the rigor of high school science.”

Teacher's Comments

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Kindergarten is rapidly developing into a lovely routine. Your children are keeping me on schedule and notice every deviation from the norm. It is a comfortable place to be.

We are sinking our teeth into subject matter as well.

Language Arts

Almost every week we will be working on a new letter. When I introduce a letter, we begin by learning how to write it. After the children are secure with that practice I introduce the name, its keyword and its sound – h – house - /h/.  Every once in awhile I will ask if the children want to bring home their practice papers – so you may have seen these come home. So far we have learned h and b. We are working on t this week. In addition to the letters and as a way to reinforce the sound of the letter we work on a poetry book together.  October reading logs were sent home today – feel free to return September reading log.

Math

Our math workouts continue to explore 1-5, sorting and classifying. We continuously work on writing the numerals. An activity sheet came home today with directions on how your child can practice these at home.

Religion

So far our religion time has been spent learning about the colors of our church calendar. The Liturgical colors help us remember what liturgical season we are celebrating. The children finished two projects and have taken them home. Your children also helped celebrate the feast of St. Francis with a craft project – we will continue to read about St. Francis this week.

Science

Science notebooks continue to be filled in – Our introduction continues with a little more practice with science tools but I hope you heard about our first experiment making milk rainbows!

Kindergarten needs:

Yoplait yogurt containers (the ones that are bigger on the bottom than the top)

Egg cartons (paper type)

Parents who can cut at home

Lunch
Please, please send a cloth or paper napkin to act as a placemat for lunch. Please send appropriate utensils with your child in his/her lunch. Please check water bottles for a secure seal.

October 7 - Muffins with Mom
October 9 - Donuts with Dad

Moms and Dads, on your designated day come into the classroom with your child when you bring him/her to school. We’ll have our morning prayer, play a game or work on an activity and share our delicious snack together. Our visit will be short and sweet and you’ll probably be on your way by 9-9:15.
