Welcome to the KB page!
Welcome to our first week of school and to the ILS Family. We are happy to have your child and your family as a part of our school and look forward to a wonderful year of learning and growing.
Please feel free to contact me during the year if questions or concerns arise. I want your child to feel comfortable at school so that the best learning can take place.
A folder will come home every evening with your child. Please check this for school newsletters, lunch menus and items from class. Make sure that it is in your child's backpack to return to school the next day.
May God bless our year together.
We will attend chapel on Wednesday this week. Parents are always welcome to join us and can sit with our class or in the back of the church. Chapel begins at 8:35.
On Thursday we will talk about the Warrior Way. This is our Christ-centered approach to character education. We will create a Warrior Way snack mix as we talk about all of the aspects of the Warrior Way. On Friday we will discuss our school theme of "Be The Gift" from 1 Peter 4:10. We will see how we can be a gift to our classmates and families this year. Next week we will have a full week of school and will begin our walk through the Bible and the wonderful accounts that God has given to us to help us learn and grow.
A great way to begin our year is with the story "Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten" We will share what we do to get ready for school and create our first class book. This will be coming home starting next week with each of our students so that they can share our work at home. Please take time that evening to read the book and add a comment for our class to enjoy. Return the book so that the next student can share it at home.
We will begin the year by working with the letter C and it's sound which we remember as the Clicking Camera! We will do a lot of sensory activities to help us remember this letter. We will also work on starting all of our letters at the top!
Along with this we will work on learning and recognizing our classmates names.
We will be using a new math series this year which incorporates a lot of problem solving and reasoning. There are many visuals and manipulatives incorporated into this series which will make our learning concrete and enjoyable!
This week we begin with recognizing numbers 1 -3 and understanding that no matter the arrangement the last number said when counting is the total.
We will spend a lot of time this week learning routines and rules. We will get to know our classmates and to recognize their names. No formal theme for this week...
We will begin memory next week as we will work on the Lord's Prayer.
