Welcome to Optional Kindergarten!

Week of September 30th - October 4th

We had a wonderful week in optional kindergarten! This week our theme was kindness. We read, How Full is Your Bucket? and created a bucket filler chart to remind us of how we can keep our buckets full. We also did a bucket filling behavior sort and discussed how positive actions from ourselves and others fill our buckets! We read The Jelly Donut Difference and discussed how we can sprinkle kindness everywhere. This week we finished up the letter M by creating uppercase M monkeys and m-flip books. We also started working on the letter I. Together we played many fun math games this week. The students loved playing the halloween dice and color game! 

Next week: We will begin using our daily math journals to work on our problem solving skills. We will also start using a daily writing journal as well. The letters we will be working on next week are I, H, and T. 

Reminders: If you haven't signed up for conferences yet, please do so. Also, please sign and return the Iowa KidSight form by October 14 if you wish to have your child participate in the screening. Thanks! :)
