• SHOW AND TELL will be on Fridays and is integrated in both English and Mandarin.  If show and tell lands on a Field trip day it could be cancelled because of time limitations. Each child in the class will have the opportunity to share one item that fits in a back pack.  Encourage your child and practice at home if possible.  Speaking in front of others and Listening are part of the AZ College and Career Readiness Common Core Curriculum. 

    TOYS and GIFTS Please do not send toys or trinkets to school unless it is for an assignment or for Show and Tell.  We also do not exchange or give gifts at school unless there are gifts for all in the classroom.  Please communicate with us beforehand if you plan to send in gifts for your child's classmates.  Thank you.

    BOOK CLUB ORDERS are optional and will be sent home periodically.  We acquire points and receive teaching materials to use in our classroom.  They are a fantastic way to encourage the love of reading. Please visit:   scholastic.com/readingclub.  On-line orders only and our class code for ordering is GQLLT.

    SNACKS  Please provide a small healthy snack each day for your child.  Try to choose a simple snack your child can manage because we will often be teaching during our snack time.  We will try to keep a few easy snacks on hand in case you forget.    THANK YOU!!

    BACKPACKS labeled with your child’s name are needed daily.  Also, the blue Toro folder needs to come with your child each day.  I truly appreciate all the donated supplies.

    HOMEWORK is required in Kindergarten and is a very important part of your child’s success.  I will help you with a DAILY routine.

    1. Warm-up with flashcards and chant charts (letter names, sounds, and words)
    2. Sight word practice routine
    3. Raz-Kids Online reading program
    4. Read (Guided Reading, bedtime story, comics, chapter books, poems.)
    5. Mandarin

    Please keep all papers, notes, in a flashcard bag or envelope.  A 3-ring binder or a special homework folder can help with organization too.  

    T.E.A.M. Together Everyone Achieves More is our class motto. I am very excited about our new Kindergarten “TEAM”!  Please ask any questions you may have and let’s make this a memorable Kindergarten year!!

    Sincerely,

    Anne Jones
