LOTS of stuff going on this week in Kindergarten.  We have started Mid year Testing and will continue until December 15th. 

New homework will be coming home in the Homework binders on Monday December 4th.  This is NOT mandatory homework. It is to be used to review skills in the classroom.  Make it fun and please don't do every page.  On that note, there are several pages at the beginning of the packet with addition.  Our Math objectives are a little off due to Harvey, so we are just introducing this concept right now.  You might need to skip those pages for the first week. Please keep homework to 15-20 minutes a night.  Writing a sentence or 2 about some fun holiday events is just as beneficial as complete a page or 2 of homework. If you have ANY questions please feel free to ask. 

 During this season, I always like to focus on being kind to others.  A kindness elf came to our classroom today and will be with us until break.  Each day she gives us a kindness challenge...things like ..Smile at 10 different people today.  Play with someone you don't usually play with at recess... etc... In this day and age spreading a little kindness can make all the difference ... and like our Wave Club here says, "it only takes a ripple to start a wave of kindness...."  

 Monday also starts our Peppermint Village. You can either come shop with your child or send money for them to shop with another adult's help and guidance. 

Have a great weekend.
