Butterfly Pavilion Fun!

Thursday is picture day.  Make sure to be on time for school because kindergarteners are the first to get their pictures taken.

Our bulbs have arrived!  We will be planting bulbs on Thursday, September 29th at 2:30.  Make sure you have your volunteer information turned in to the office so you can join us for planting!  

What a busy week it has been.  We have begun working with fairy tales and writing!  Below is a slideshow demonstrating the scaffolded writing technique used in kindergarten.  Be on the look out for center plan writing coming home each week!

Scaffolded Writing

Hi DGS families!  We know that kindergarten is an exciting time for everyone.  For some of you it is the first traditional school experience you have had and for others things have changed drastically from ECE to Kindergarten.  We are all getting to know each other, learn our classmates names, and get used to the rituals and routines of kindergarten.

We have had a few questions and I would like address them to alleviate any of your concerns:

1. If your child is coming home famished, get on the school website with them and discuss the menu for the next day to help them find a choice they will like.

2. Make sure to check your child's backpack each day, but especially on Thursdays and send back any paperwork that needs to be filled out.  There may also be student work that you can keep and put on your fridge!  :)

3. These long exciting days of kindergarten can lead to accidents when we're having fun.  Please send your child with a change of clothes in their backpack... just in case!

What a great start to the school year!  Kindergarten has been exploring centers, learning classroom routines, and making friends!
