I am looking forward to meeting with you all this week to talk about the progress that your children are making!

 

The Kindergarten class is working on their first narrative writing. We began last week by coming up with story ideas. After each child chose their topic, they began to dictate details of their stories. We came up with complete sentences together. Revising and editing came next. This morning, we began writing the final draft of the stories. I was so impressed by how hard all of the children worked. Everyone remained focused while trying to write in their best handwriting, using capital and lowercase letters properly, and putting the correct spacing between words. Several of the children finished today. It was great to watch!

 

Parent Conferences – Conference are on Thursday and Friday this week. Many of the conferences are scheduled back-to-back. I will work hard to keep us all on schedule. I am looking forward to meeting with each of you this week.

 

Book Fair – The book fair will be open after school through tomorrow. It will also be open on Thursday and Friday during conferences.

 

Field Trip to Seattle Children’s Theater – Our field trip to see “The Velveteen Rabbit” is next Tuesday. The play begins at 10:00, so we will need to leave school at 8:45. Towards the end of the week I will send home car assignments. We will be back at school around 12:15 and will eat lunch when we return. In the past, the children have brought their snacks to the play and have eaten them outside the theater while we are waiting for our seats. If you would like to send snack with your child, you may do so. However, no food or drinks are allowed inside the theater.

 

 

 

In Christ,
