Superheroes in Training

The students have seven days of school under their superhero belts now and they are quickly becoming experts on following the classroom rituals and routines. Behavior is a part of your child's grade, so thank you for encouraging them to follow directions and always try their best!
We have quite a few events coming up so don't forget to check and sign your child's agenda daily. Homework will be sent home on Mondays and will be collected from the agenda each Friday. I have some great pictures from the first week of school and I will post them as soon as the county sends us our code of conduct books which contain the media release form.
I hope your little superheroes are coming home each day excited about school and I look forward to seeing everyone again for our Open House on Thursday, September 6, from 6:00-7:30pm.

First Day!

Wow! We had quite a first day in kindergarten. Our day was a non-stop blur of learning about each other and about our classroom rituals and routines. We created self portraits, read stories, played with playdough, practiced our writing skills, explored math manipulatives, and somewhere found time to eat lunch and play outside for recess.
Dismissal was a little hectic due to the severe thunderstorm that decided to pass through, but everyone made it home safely and hopefully happy with their first day.
Please remember to have your child wear his or her transportation tag (the green one they came home wearing today) back to school tomorrow. Kindergarten students need to wear this back and forth each day for the first two weeks of school.
Your child also received his or her agenda today. This is our primary method of communication. Please take some time to look through it and get familiar with the set up. The clear pocket in the front is for sending things back and forth and in the back you will find your child's reading log. Go ahead and start filling it up with all the good books you read at home! If you (or your child) is reading chapter books, each chapter can be written down as one book on the log. Today's date is marked with a colored paperclip. Please make sure you check and sign this portion of the agenda daily.
We have an exciting year planned and I'm looking forward to another great school day tomorrow. :-)

Welcome to Kindergarten!

Hello and welcome to my classroom blog! I hope each of you had a fantastic summer.

It's hard to believe that another school year is already beginning. This year we are using our superhero powers to show our students that Nothing Can Stop NBE Super Learners. Your children are going to set out on a journey that will forever change who they are. Like Clark Kent into Superman or Selina Kyle into Catwoman, your children will learn that they too have the superpowers to become anything they want to be. We will take risks, work hard, try new things, and (of course), have fun!  :-)

See you soon!
