Notes to Parents:
We have begun our new GrapeSEED unit. It goes along with spring and the farm and our science unit which is Living and Non-Living Things. PLEASE make sure you have returned the Blue Book and CD and DVD. We will not send home the Black book until after they are returned. PLEASE JOIN US FOR DINNER AT MCDONALDS ON WEDNESDAY MARCH 22ND FOR MCTEACHERS NIGHT!!!!
We continue our math module of preparation for addition and subtraction. We are learning about number bonds and composing and decomposing groups of numbers to 10. While the focus will be on addition and subtraction to 5, we will have exposure through 10. We will continue to identify and write and count numbers 1-100.
Please continue to help your child print all letters and numerals correctly and first and last names. This means using the correct lines and spacing.
Our focus letters for the new GrapeSEED unit 4 session are: h, o, r, s, j, and v. We will teach all of the sounds associated with these letters and see them in the beginning, middle, and end of words. Your child will need to practice writing these letters. We are learning to read and write simple CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words such as “hog” or “rob”. We will also work on onsets and rimes which are commonly called word families (such as got, hot, pot, etc. and hop, top, stop, or dog, log, frog, etc.)
Please practice the high frequency words (sight words) for this session which are: four, how Please help your child to look for these words when you are reading books at home and practice them with the word lists that I send home. Please continue to review all of the prior words also. I will continue to send home practice sentences to read and phonetic words to sound out.
Please review what we are working on in class with your child at home. Thank you.

Behavior Management Plan
MRS. WARREN'S KINDERGARTEN CLASS
I believe that in order to have a well-managed classroom where learning is taking place, we need to have mutual respect between the teacher and students. I spend a lot of time learning about, talking to, and getting to know and care about every one of my students. Your child will be encouraIged to try and do their best every day. There is no “I can’t” in our classroom. We speak positively about ourselves:
Our school motto is:
I am smart.
I am kind.
I am important.
And I am here to Learn.
My classroom is highly structured and I have high expectations for my students. Consistency is the key to having a well-managed classroom.
I believe having open communication between teacher and parents is essential to your child’s educational success. I will be communicating regularly with you through weekly newsletters, website, notes, email, and phone calls. You may contact me at any time at 445-0517 or firstname.lastname@example.org also.
We have so much to learn in kindergarten and the less time I have to spend on discipline (and interruptions), the more time I have to teach.
1st--Verbal Warnings: Children may have up to 3 depending on the incident.
2nd--Thinking Chair: Child will sit and think about changing their behavior and tell the teacher the rule and what they need to do. I may send home an "Ooops" note.
3rd--Name on the Board: This means they will “owe” me time (5 or 10 minutes) either at free time or recess. You will receive an "Oooops!" note from me explaining the problem. This must be signed and returned the next day.
4th--Responsible Ranger Referral: This means a write up which you must sign and return. Student will be sent to the office. You will receive notification (a phone call) from me.
Unfortunately some problem behaviors that hurt other children or are considered major offenses may skip directly to a level 3 or 4.
After any problem behavior I conference with the individual child and we problem solve regarding the behavior and how to change it and re-state the positive desired behavior.
Mrs. Warren’s Classroom Rules
1. We walk in school.
2. We are kind and show respect.
3. We keep our area clean.
4. We keep our hands, feet, and objects in our own personal space.
5. We stay on task (doing what the teacher has told us to do).
6. We obey the proper voice level.
Let’s work together to have a positive learning environment for all children. Thank you.
