Much to do in week two!

It is amazing to see the transformations already taking place in this year's wonderful group of students after only two weeks of school. We are continuing to learn and practice our classroom rituals and routines. Some of the students have already become experts and are now helping their friends understand what to do as well!

Today the students participated in a special Reading Kick Off event where we learned the importance of following the rules as well as discussing our reading goals for the year. Champ was there to rock out with us as well as several teachers from our rocking NBE staff. What a fun way for the students to learn that Readers are Leaders!

Please remember to check agendas daily and to sign and return the blue Tuesday Folder the following day. Homework goes home each Monday and is collected from the agendas every Friday. There is no school on Monday, September 2, for Labor Day. Enjoy your long weekend!

* We received information that the code of conduct books are going to be accessible online this year, rather than in printed form (though you may request a printed copy if you need one). Please look in this week's Tuesday folder for information about how to access the online version.*

Week one, already done!

This first week of school has zipped right by! Our class has 20 wonderful students who are learning so much about how to be responsible kindergarteners and how to have fun while still following the rules. Please take some time to talk with your child and have him or her share our classroom rules with you. The more they talk about them at home, the more likely they are to remember them at school.
We began practicing our color coded behavior chart this week as well. Starting Monday, the students' behavior will be recorded from the chart daily and will make up a percentage of their conduct grade.

I have great first day and first week pictures that I can't wait to post on our classroom blog. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for our code of conduct books which have the technology permission slips. As soon as we get those in, I will send them home to be signed and we can start showing you just how much fun we are having in this rock star class!

Thank you to everyone who has sent in supplies, offered to help out in the classroom, and continues to check and sign the agenda daily. You are a rocking support team! :-)

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. Your children are going to set out on a journey that will forever change who they are. From practicing in the classroom to rocking out on life's big stage, your children will learn that they can follow their dreams to become anything they want to be. We will take risks, work hard, try new things, and (of course), have fun!  :-)

See you soon!
