Week 2: Getting to Know You

Hello Families of Room 104,

Thank you for such an amazing first week of Kindergarten. I was so impressed with how much your students have shown me and how well they are adapting to remote learning in Kindergarten. A few reminders, we will be having our second materials pick up this Thursday from 10:00am-1:00pm. Please come to our door to receive your new materials, for this pick up you do not need to bring old materials for exchange.

I would highly encourage you to buy a set of magnetic letters for your student to use in their word work and phonics lesson. I will be sending home an article which includes several ways to use magnetic letters to aid in your students letter knowledge and study.

Our curriculum night will be held on the 15th. Please join us as I will be outlining Kindergarten learning goals, curriculum, and how best you can support your student this year. If you can not make it, I will be sending out a recording and the slides for your review.

Please take a look at our learning objectives for this coming week. You can find all classroom assignments in your student’s Seesaw and the Murray’s Learning Hub
