The first week of homework was sent home this afternoon. The red homework folder is sent home on Fridays and they are due back to school the following Friday. Today we spent some time going over the directions for the homework and what work would qualify for a check plus. If students earn a check plus on all 5 homework sheets they will earn a prize!
The third edition of Room 101's Kindergarten News came home today. The first page of the news was completed at school. The students are word detectives and hunt for some of the high frequency words that are learned in kindergarten. The students use a different color marker to circle each of the news high frequency words. The Kindergarten News was addressed at Pine Glen's Open House and information was given to parents about how to read the news with their child. Please refer to the packet if you have questions about the news. The students were challenged to complete the news over the weekend the way we do it at school and an additional prize can be earned! We hope we have some students complete this challenge. The completed news should be sent back to school on Monday.
