     Dear Families:

     We have had a great first, full week of school. We have done 5 letters in Jolly Phonics. Thank you for getting sound books back every day! We worked on sorting and shapes. We are learning about being a good friend! We are learning so much and having so much fun!

     Thank you for getting back home folders. Homework will be a little different this year. The note attached explains how DeMiguel kindergarten is doing homework. Please look at it carefully. Thank you!

     If your child is going home a different way than usual, please pin a note to his/her backpack.

     Please check your child’s backpack everyday.

     On the back of this note is our Specials schedule.

     I am sending home Scholastic Book order forms. There is no obligation to buy books but it is an inexpensive way to add to your home library. The sticker on the order form will help you order online. If you do not have access to the Internet, you can send your order form back to school. If you do this, please send a check for the total of the book orders. Book orders are due back Sept. 1st.

     We love to draw in kindergarten. In my attempt to be “green” I use one-sided paper that I find in the recycle bin in the copy room. I also use envelopes that are from junk mail. So, don’t be alarmed if you see a picture of a rainbow on the other side of a 5th grade math page or an envelope from Verizon.

    Have a great week!

    This week’s homework

     Practice sounds in sound book.   If your child is ready write words beginning with that sound in his/her sound book.

     Find the word “the” in magazines, newspapers etc.  Make it fun! Have them be word detectives!

     Identify circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, ovals and hexagons in the world around them.
