Ms. Trowbridge's Class

This week in kindergarten we will be learning and creating all different patterns. We will be using ourselves, toys, as well as coloring our own patterns. We will also be focusing on the -an family as well as the -op family. Everyone is doing so well at figuring out these word families, please encourage your student to sing you the word family songs.

Yesterday we celebrated the 100th day of school. We got to do some fun crafts including 100 exercises, collect 100 things, and find a surprise message in a 100 chart.

We have been busy writing in our journals almost everyday. Everyone is getting so good at sounding out their own words. Please continue to encourage your child to sound out words at home too.

A new homework calendar went home on Friday, if you did not get one, please let me know. Remember, this calendar is good for two weeks and all assignments should be turned in on the Friday of the second week. I realize that this calendar has taken some getting use to but this will help them transition into the first grade homework calendar better as well as really fine tune the work we do in class.

I hope everyone has a great week, if you have any questions, please contact me.
