A note from Ms. Poteet…
What a great field trip we had!  Thank you so much to those parents who came with us to see The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales.  The children really enjoyed the show, especially Rumplestilskin. 

I’m sure you heard about the leprechaun visit on Friday!  Our room was quite crazy after we returned from PE, which caused a lot of excitement!  He did leave a treat for everyone.  They had so much fun searching for gold coins, discovering the lucky dust he left for us, and his sneaky escape route through the open window!
 Important Dates this Month:
March 21st: Early Release Day
March 29th: North Campus March Mania at 5:30
April 5th: Kindergarten Poetry Potluck from 6:00-7:30 (more information to come home soon)

 What are we learning?
Reading Workshop
We will begin a unit about visualizing.  Good readers make pictures in their minds as they read.  We will close our eyes and listen to poems and stories, illustrate those visualizations and share them with each other.    

Writing Workshop
We are continuing our Poetry Unit.  Students are reading and writing a variety of poems and exploring poetic devices.      

Word Study
This week, we will explore –ill, , -ell, -all word families.
We will also learn how to read and write these words that will be added to our Word Wall: who, play, made. Have your child sing you the songs for these words.

Students will create and solve story problems, create a class number story book, play addition games with dice and learn about the quarter. 

Social Studies
This week we continue our unit on Geography and the seven continents.
*Send in a healthy snack and water bottle every day.
