Classroom Newsletter

Effective communication between parents and teachers is key to student success. For me the best way to keep parents informed is to send home a weekly class newsletter. A newsletter helps parents keep track of upcoming school activities and what kids are learning in school. I like to send home a hard copy in take home folders and email a copy to parents. I include a little peek at our week, upcoming dates, the high frequency words we will be learning, important reminders, and our daily specials schedule. 

If you need help creating a newsletter for your class I made my newsletter editable. Click here or the picture above for the newsletter template.

wants and needs

For this unit we made a wants and needs circle map.
We completed a picture sort of needs and wants.
I love reading all the pigeon books during this unit. The pigeon books are loved by all and he wants everything! After reading some of the books we graphed our favorite pigeon book on the floor.

Down By The Bay

 We love singing Down By The Bay on repeat and creating our own rhymes. It's so catchy and fun to sing (especially with jazz hands). I created this little song book for my kiddos to create their own rhyme. It's one of their favorite books to read.

We did more rhyming practice in our interactive notebook.
Take a look by clicking the picture below.

Kindergartners grow and develop so much from August to May! Seeing this growth is so rewarding as their teacher. Here is a free activity to do at the beginning of the school year and again at the end of kindergarten. This makes a sweet end of the year keepsake! Kindergarten is such a big year!
