Kinder News #11

Friday Folders go home tomorrow; here are the things to look for:

Homework: “Penny Jar”- Students were introduced to estimation this week. We practiced estimating the number of pennies in a jar and the number of teddy bears in a jar. We also worked on handful estimates and learned the difference between an estimate and a guess.

Scholastic Book Club: I’ve sent home November book order forms as well as the Holiday Gift Books catalog. Orders are due November 20th and books will arrive before the holidays.

Parent Contact Info: Some parents have expressed an interest in creating a class contact list with parents’ names and phone numbers so that families can organize play dates. If you are interested in this please e-mail me with your phone number and I will create a list to be shared among parents. If I don’t hear back from you I’ll assume you would rather your information not be shared.

SHOES: Please consider sending a pair of slippers or inside shoes that your child can leave at school. Wet and muddy shoes can create quite a mess in the classroom.

Thanksgiving Meal: A special Thanksgiving meal will be served at the cafeteria on November 18th. You are welcome to join your child. Please place your order by November 13th.

Taos Feeds Taos: The student council will be collecting non-perishable food items for Taos Feeds Taos. Please feel free to send donations in with your child.

I hope to see you at Explora night tonight!
