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 16, Week 2: Earth Day is Every Day.  We will learn about pollution and the need for a clean environment.  We will learn about ways to reduce and reuse trash.  We will learn about recycling.  We will learn about composting.

Our Shared Story this week is Hot Muffins! and our focus sound is /h/.  

Green Words (sound out): “ham,” “hot,” “muffins,” “yum,” “Hank’s,” “hugged,” “rocks,” “had,” “”hat,” “hut,” “sell,” “hid,” “lots,” “tossed”

Red Words (sight words): “give,” “his,” “were,” “hard,” “I’ll,” “your”

We will substitute phonemes.  We will blend sounds to make words.  We will segment sounds into words.  We will add phonemes.

Math:  We will tell, retell, and write equations for additions and subtraction stories.  We will visualize teen numbers as ten ones and extra ones. We will show numbers 1-20; show the teen numbers as a group of ten ones and further ones.  We will find the unknown partner when the total and one partner are known. We will find all the partners of 2 through 10.  We will practice writing and identifying symbols in an equation – specifically the equal and not-equal signs.
