Snapshot of the week:
     We had another great week in kindergarten last week! The kiddos have made so much progress in following through with classroom and school routines, and are even getting much better at knowing each other's names! We even had our first Open Circle meeting, our social-emotional program that encourages children to recognize and manage emotions, practice problem-solving skills, and create a strong sense of classroom community. This week, we will be learning all about apples; we'll have vocabulary words, games and crafts! We'll also begin our Fundations lessons, starting with the letters Tt, Bb, and Ff. Please refer to the handout that will be sent home on Monday (9/11) to help your child practice these skills at home.
