Today we had a guest at our chapel, George Dennehy. He shared with us his music as well as his story. You can learn more about George at his website: georgedennehy.com.
I’m looking forward to seeing each of over the next couple weeks for conferences. Take a look at report cards and bring any questions you may have with you for our time together. Please help us keep on schedule by arriving a couple minutes early and being mindful of our 15 minute time limit. If we need to schedule a longer time to talk I would be happy to set something else up.
March is reading month. We are looking forward to celebrating this with Wacky Wednesdays (see below) and Mystery Readers. If you would like to come in as a Mystery Reader check out our sign-up here: SignUpGenius. There will be some “Spanglish” books available in our classroom if you are interested in grabbing one of those to read or send me an email and I will put one in your child’s backpack.
**Note the change in Wacky Wednesdays below. We have a field trip on March 19 and decided not to leave the building in our “Who-hair.”**

This week our sight words were “bien” and “dijo” (he/she said). We reviewed syllables with “h” – these syllables trick us up because the “h” has no sound! If you are interested in learning a little bit more Spanish as a parent there is a great app called DuoLingo (it’s free!) that you can use to learn Spanish beginning with the most basic to much more complicated language.
In Math we have been working hard on our addition facts to 10 and subtraction to 5. At this point in kindergarten some children are able to do these with ease and could use some more challenges with math – enlist them in helping you count and add up items at the grocery store. Other children could use some extra help – give them some beans or pennies to use while completing math problems at home.
In Bible we continued to heard more of Israel’s history as the Israelites struggled to always listen to God. The kindergartener’s had a lot of fun singing praise songs together while using musical instruments when we talked about how King Hezekiah cleaned up the temple and reopened it as a place of worship to God.
