School Hours

We have staggered start times for grade levels, and a common release for all students at 3:00 pm.  Kindergarten classes begin at 9:00 am daily.  There will be supervision in the cafeteria and gym each morning beginning at 7:30 am.  We also have our after-school SAFE program with adult supervision from 3:00 – 6:00 pm.

Daily Arrival

School begins at 9:00 am each morning. Check-in at the office if arrival is 9:00 am or later. All kindergarten students must be walked to class by a parent or guardian. If a student arrives by bus or is dropped off early, they are to go directly to the cafeteria and then the gym. They will be chaperoned and brought to class as a group by an aide. Students are not to be wandering the campus or in classrooms before 9:00 am for safety purposes.

Our Learning 

ELA:  This week we will begin Unit 7, Week 1: Sing a Song – Paint a Picture.  We will listen to The Jazz Fly.  We will learn about instrument families.  We will learn about tempo and dynamics, music around the world, and marching bands.

We have officially learned all of our letter sounds!  We will transition from Stepping Stones into KinderRoots to begin blending these sounds to read/write words.  We will begin by learning our Alphabet Chant to help remind us of the sounds the letters make.  

We will be introduced to our Shared Stories which provide us with words that we can stretch and read, we will have red words added to our Word Wall weekly, and students will begin learning how to read independently!  

Our focus letters this week will be /m/, /a/, /s/, and /d/.  

We will recognize alliteration, blend sounds to make words, segment words into sounds, and blend syllables to make words.

Math:  This week we will begin Unit 3 of our math curriculum!  We will find groups of 1 through 10 and identify patterns.  We will identify 10-groups within teen numbers.  We will find partners of numbers 2 through 6.  We will tell and solve addition and subtraction stories.  We will show tens in teen numbers, and draw numbers 6 through 10 using 5-groups.
