Dear Parents and Students,

         Welcome to Kindergarten B! This will be an exciting year of learning for all of our students. Kindergarten marks the beginning of your child’s formal academic education, and it will prove to be a milestone in your child’s holistic development.  Each day your child will engage in dynamic experiences in reading and writing, mathematics, religion, science, and social studies. Your child will also participate in special classes in art and music, Spanish language classes, gym, and technology class. Most importantly, your child will be part of a class community that celebrates each person as a precious and unique child of God, and encourages cooperation, compassion, and respect for all. I look forward to being a part of your child’s educational experience this school year!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Marinelli

Week of January 11-15, 2021

Dear Parents,

Last week in ELA we practiced blending sounds to decode words, segmenting sounds to spell words, and we practiced identifying rhyming words and their word families. Your child read texts in small groups and independently, and wrote story responses and original stories using high frequency/spelling words.

This week we will identify characters, settings, and key story events in ELA. We will work on phonics, focusing on letter d, and we will identify adjectives in sentences. In math we will work with place values to 31, and compare numbers. In social studies we are exploring the different  cultures in our communities. In religion we are celebrating the Father’s gift of His Son, Jesus.

Please be reminded that there is a half day dismissal this Friday, January 15th, for teacher professional development. School will be closed on Monday, January 18th, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Have a great week!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Marinelli

Ms. Oliva and I wish you all a very blessed Christmas! May God keep you all safe and happy in the new year!

With warmest Christmas wishes,

  Week of November 30- December 4, 2020

Dear Parents,

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Happy Advent season!

This week we will begin unit 3 in our Wonders ELA program. We will be reading fictional and informational texts focusing on the theme: What we can learn by going to different places, and what rules are important in these different settings? We will analyze story elements, use text evidence to support discussions about texts, and write story responses. We will also introduce the letter Ii, and work with CVC words that have the short i sound. In math we will work with numbers 1-10, identifying and writing numbers, sequencing numbers, using ordinal numbers 1-10, and creating sets to equal sums up to 10. In social studies we will continue to learn about communities, and talk about our roles within our community. In religion we will talk about how we can experience and celebrate God’s love with our families. We will also celebrate the season of Advent in preparation for Christmas.

Reminders:

  1. The kindergarten classes will have an ELA test on Monday, November 30th. Please use the review sheets in your child’s folder to practice identifying initial, medial, and end sounds of words, and high frequency words (such as the, can, we, like, see, a).
  2. We will have a math test on Monday, December 7th. I will send home a cumulative review sheet next weekend.
  3. Parent-Teacher conferences will be held virtually on December 7th. I sent the link for the conference last weekend via email. I am looking forward to meeting with you!
  4. Please be sure to return the leveled readers each day in the book folder so that your child may participate in reading group sessions in class.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I will see you on Monday!

With warm regards,

Mrs. Marinelli

  4. I want to thank so many of you for your thoughtfulness and generosity in wanting to donate activities or party bags for the children for Halloween. Under normal circumstances this would be so welcome, and I truly appreciate all you want to do for the children. We received guidelines of the strict protocols that are in place in our Catholic schools, and we are unable to accept party bags, craft items, or gifts for the students to distribute to their peers. Thank you so much for understanding.
  5. Please be sure to check your child’s pencil case each night to make sure pencils are sharpened, your child has at least the basic crayons (red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, black, brown), scissors, and a working glue stick. (The children now keep their dry erase markers in a separate Ziplock bag with their workbooks.) Thank you for your help!

Have a great week!

Mrs. Marinelli

Week of October 5, 2020

Dear Parents,
During the past two weeks, our ELA program has focused on essential questions about what makes each person unique, and what makes each family special. This week we will be working on a unit in ELA that focuses on the essential question, “What can I do?” We will be reading related stories and informational texts, and working on writing projects that answer these questions. In social studies we will continue this topic, and talk about how we are all connected in our family, neighborhood, and world communities. In religion, we are thanking God for His gifts, and we will focus on the Genesis story of how God made the land. We are also celebrating the Feast of St. Francis (October 4th), and the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary (October 7th). In science we will learn about land formations and biomes. In math we are beginning a new unit on geometry and patterns, and will focus on 2D and 3D shapes. Please find the weekly newsletter and homework assignments attached below.
Have a great week!

Mrs. Marinelli
