Fri- Happy Birthday Joshua!!
Next week we will be discussing community helpers in class. We are looking for volunteers who may want to come into our class and share about their job and how it helps the community. The time will be from 9:15 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. starting on Monday, September 25 through Thursday, September 28. If you would be willing to come in and speak to all of Kindergarten, please contact your child’s teacher as soon as possible! We look forward to hearing from you and always appreciate your willingness to help!

Color Days (the remainder of this week and next)

Habit 2 - Beginning with the End in Mind
We began discussing a new habit this week. Beginning with the end in mind simply means setting a goal for yourself and creating a plan to accomplish your goal. We are creating a class mission statement this week and the class will each make a goal for themselves beginning next week. I will discuss with each student how they plan to accomplish their goal and brainstorm ways to do this. (ex. "learn alphabet sounds by practicing at school each day and at home with my alphabet chart.") The class seems to really enjoy the beginning of our day when we have a class meeting to discuss the habit and ways to practice the habit in our every day lives.
