First I have some updates from the school!
Back to Football Friday!
Are you ready for some FOOTBALL? Teasley's Physical Education department is proud to partner with the NFL and their PLAY60 program to bring you BACK TO FOOTBALL Friday on September 7th. Back to Football Friday is a school-wide event that encourages students to get active and excited about the upcoming football season. Students are encouraged to wear their favorite NFL football gear. During their specials time the students will participate in football related stations testing their throwing, catching, kicking, punting, and speed/agility.
Like any school-wide event, WE NEED YOUR HELP. To volunteer please use this link http://signup.com/go/WscGUKW.
Should you have any questions please feel free to contact Coach Homansky at firstname.lastname@example.org or Coach Sonny at email@example.com.
FROZEN FRIDAYS are coming! Support our 5th graders by purchasing a FROZEN FRIDAY pass. With a FROZEN FRIDAY pass, your child will receive a real fruit, no sugar added frozen treat every Friday of the school year. You can purchase an annual pass for $30 or a quarterly pass for $10. Buying an annual pass saves you $10! See the order form for additional details.
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! As we jump into a new school year, the Teasley Attendance Team wants to reward those students who come to school on time every day. Students who have perfect attendance at the end of the first 9 weeks, ending on Wednesday, October 10th, will receive a free dress down day, a surprise treat, and 1 entry into the end of the year drawing for a BRAND NEW BIKE! Furthermore, those students who have perfect attendance for the entire school year will have the opportunity to participate in a end of year celebration during the last week of school as well as FOUR entries into the drawing for the bike! Thank you so much for your support with getting your student to school on time every day.
This week we will continue to talk about ourselves by learning more about our school and home communities and comparing the two. Students are continuing their All About Me presentations as well.
We will be talking about what a bucket filler is this week and how we can be one. Bucket Fillers do kind and helpful things for others around them and these acts of kindness help fill the buckets of the people around them. It encourages students to think about their impact on those around them and ways they can be kind within their communities. We will also continue focusing on defining and identifying the character, setting, author and illustrator as we discuss our daily read alouds.
We are learning the letters j, k, p, and b this week. Students began learning how to read and write three letter words last week and they are really starting to catch on! I have been so impressed with how quickly they are learning their daily letter sounds and beginning to blend them together. We also practice rhyming, identifying syllables, and identifying the beginning sounds of words on a daily basis.
In math we are continuing to practice counting to 100 and will also begin to encourage students to count on from a given number. Students will practice using a ten frame to help them count groups of objects accurately and will begin comparing groups of objects and identifying which one has more or less. On Friday we will be completing a weekly word problem to keep up our critical thinking skills!
Just a heads up, I will be out of the building on Monday for jury duty, and on Thursday I will be in the building but will be in an all day planning session with the rest of the kindergarten team. Don't forget that Wednesday is also an early release day! It's going to be a fun but quick week!
Thanks for all that you do!
