Ask Your Kinder About
Dinner table conversation starters
- Our Zoo-phonics friends. Who is Timothy Tiger?
- Who lives in an ocean community?
- Creating our class rules together
- Holding live crabs during our Crab Cab guest lesson! (last Friday)
- Hunting for "treasure" in our classroom library
- As a part of our introduction to Reader's Workshop, we ask that you please send in your child's favorite book. We wiill keep the books in the classroom for a few weeks so each child has an opportunity to share their favorite with the class. This will help us learn more about each other and the wonders of reading.
- We've got a full two hours between snack and lunch time. Make sure to send your child to school with a hearty, healthy snack!
- Kindergarten classrooms are nut-sensitive zones. For the safety of children with serious allergies, leave all food containing nuts at home. Thank you!
If you've got these items around the house, please bring them in!
- Wood scraps - 2x4s 12" or longer and 3/4" plywood 12" square inches or larger
- Interesting cardboard pieces - egg cartons, paper towel rolls and the like for creating.
