Well the first week of kindergarten is wrapping up and it has been a wonderful one! Your students have practiced new classroom procedures, made new friends, and learned tons of new things! We have begun to introduce the letters of the alphabet, including their names, sounds, and how to write them correctly. We also have been making a craft to go with some of them, including the martian hats that came home on their heads on Tuesday! For each letter we also brainstorm words that begin with the sound the letter makes and the students have come up with some very creative examples, check them out below:
Every morning when your student comes in they practice tracing and writing their names. We also ripped pieces of colored construction paper to make our very own rainbow name mosaics that are now up on our classroom wall.
We also love singing songs in our room! Ask your students about our morning meeting greeting, 'Up the Ladder, Down the Ladder' or our hallway song. Thank you so much for sharing your children with me, I am so lucky that I get to work with them every day! As always, please check out the Seesaw app for even more pictures and videos from our week!
