Dear Kindergarten Families,

      The time is flying by and we have so much to talk about! Well, I’m sure you’ve heard about our tricky little friend… the Gingerbread Man. He was created in Frankie’s oven (Yes, our own Frankie) and he came to our classroom on Monday. By the next day he was gone. He has been leaving us little messages and clues to trick us.  He even made it to the RED apple when he wrote all over my white board (YIKES!!)  We finally realized that he was frightened because he thought we would eat him.  We told him he was safe and he is BACK!!! We are adding him to our class list and he is now part of the class. It has been a fun week!  While we were reading notes, looking for clues and searching for him, we also read many books about the gingerbread characters, wrote about them, colored them, tasted them, graphed them and even baked gingerbread today!!! We’ve been busy! Thank you to all that took so much time decorating your gingerbread characters…they look great!  We still have a few more stories to read but I can tell you this… we graphed the most popular place to bite into a gingerbread man cookie and it was the…leg.  We actually did this in class and had sooooooo much fun!

Fundations is a phonics based reading and writing program that we use each day.  There are 3 units covered in Kindergarten.  Unit 1 covers all lower case letters.  Unit 2 covers all capital letters.  Unit 3 covers sentence structure, tapping (sounding out) words and writing.  We do Fundations every day.

We have just completed Unit 1.
We will be starting Unit 2 after the vacation... :)
