We have been learning so much in our first weeks of kinder! We are starting to feel comfortable with our routines, learning how to use our classroom materials, how to play on the playground and making lots of new friends. We have enjoyed participating in chapel time with the whole school to praise God through our singing and talk about this year’s theme. What a blessing it is to be a part of a school that comes together in such an intentional way to build community and praise God.
Please keep sending in a water bottle with your child. This saves us lots of time because we don’t have to walk all the way to the drinking fountain by the gym every time we need a drink.
Our first field trip is fast approaching. On October 2 we will visit Sietsema Orchards in Ada. We are looking for 2 more parent volunteers that would like to come along with us. We will leave on the bus around 8:20 and should return to the school around 11am. Please e-mail me if you are interested in attending.
Please be sure to check the links on the right to see what is happening in our co-curricular classes as well as read the GRCES Home Bulletin or look at the hot lunch menu.

This week we learned our first sight word, “yo.” We practiced using “yo” to make sentences in our first take home book, “Yo lo hago así.” You will find the book along with some more information in your child’s blue take home folder. We also formed writing partners that can read our writing and help us decide how to make it even bettter.
In Math we have been using small manipulatives to make numbers 1-10 and even talked about adding and subtracting with colored cubes.
We learned about our senses of sight (vista) and hearing (oído). We even did a hearing test to see if we could name sounds without seeing a picture. It is amazing how God made our senses so that we can learn about the world around us.
In Bible we read the story of Noah’s Ark and the Tower of Babel. We talked about how God always keeps His promises and that we need his love, especially when we make mistakes.
