Kindergarten News Winter 2011 Dear Kindergarten Families, Happy New Year. We hope you enjoyed your holiday season. We continue to focus on letter and sound recognition. The students are progressing in their writing and are beginning to use inventive spelling. They are also using sight words in their work. In mathematics, the children are recognizing the numbers from 0 to 20. They are working with patterns, shapesand graphs. We are also busy working on our reading, writing, social studies, science, art, and physical education skills. February is Black History Month. The kindergarten classeshave begun to prepare for PS111X’s Black History Museum. Kindergarten will attend a Black History Celebration at Hostos College on February 1, 2011. Tickets cost $8.00 each and payment must be received by January 7th at the latest. If payment is not received by that date, late payments will not be accepted. Pleasecheck your child’s homework folder each day for the current day’s homework and for prior homework that has been checked and returned. Pleasedo not return the checked homework to school. At the end of the school week, pleaseremove all papers from your child’s folder. Each child must have a change of clothes; and please label each piece of clothing. Our classroom supplies have dwindled. If you can, pleasesend any of the following items: tissues, pencils, crayons, hand sanitizer, glue sticks, pocket folders and notebooks.
