Halloween Party Update:
So far, we have 2 crafts and 1 game covered for the Halloween Party. We can either leave it at that or we can add another game...up to you all. I also realized that I forgot to put juice boxes on the sign up list, so if someone wants to buy those, that would be great.
I have Charlie Brown Halloween for the kids to watch as they enjoy their snacks. I will also have a few Halloween songs for us to dance to if we have extra time.
Finally, the kids may wear a Halloween shirt or an appropriate orange or black shirt on Halloween. Costumes are not allowed.

Our next all school fundraiser is Beverages, Bags and Bingo on Saturday, November 3rd. I have been told to ask each family to donate $5 to help cover the cost of the night. Thank you so much for your generosity.

A few thoughts:
First, I posted a few short movie clips on Dojo featuring the Class Dojo monsters. The kids loved seeing their monsters! These clips taught us our next virtue...perseverance. Also, the class was introduced to what I believe is one of the most important aspects of Kindergarten. The knowledge of how we learn (connections of neurons), the mindset to look for connections between subject matter and the desire to challenge oneself to solve problems. The rest of the year flows from these ideas. In our classroom, there is a sign called "Blueprint of Connections". It has a photo of each section of our classroom-religion, reading, science, social studies, makerspace and math. On this blueprint we record the connections we make between subject matter. For example, in the makerspace last year the kids created a ramp and started rolling blocks down it. They made the connection that the rolling blocks have momentum. We then take a piece of string and connect the makerspace to the science area on our blueprint. This will give the kids an idea on how the neurons in our brain work. By the end of the year, they will be applying the knowledge they learn to solve countless problems.
Also, by the end of the 1st quarter the kids will be tested on the Our Father prayer as well as the Sign of the Cross. We pray these multiple times a day.

We will have library ever Tuesday. Please remind your child to bring his/her book back to school by then.

In Social Studies class we are collecting notes from people all over the United States. The kids each have a U.S.A. map and we are coloring in the state as we receive a letter from someone in that state. The notes are short (4-5 sentences) and they teach the kids something about the state...its position relative to MO, what the climate is like, what people there enjoy doing, etc. If you know of anyone from another state, that would like to write us a letter, feel free to message me. I have collected about 25 letters from family and friends and the kids always seem to enjoy them.
On your child's birthday (or on the day before/after if it falls over the weekend), he or she may:
1.) Dress Down
2.) Bring a store bought treat for the class (Please check with me on what you plan to bring.)
We will celebrate summer birthdays on their half birthdays. :)
The kids will have homework Monday-Thursday nights. They will always have sight words to practice. Also, a math or handwriting sheet will be sent home. Please have the kids complete their homework every night and sent it back in their folders.
