Welcome To Mrs. Webb's Kindergarten Class
Good afternoon everyone. The students all had a wonderful first day of school.I am very proud of all my students. Our class received chromebooks today. I kept the chromebooks in the classroom today, since we have computers tomorrow and the students will need them. After tomorrow, the students will bring their chromebooks home. Please make sure that you go into the Parent Portal and check off the "Device Agreement" so that your child can bring their chromebook home. Starting next week, students will only need to bring their chromebooks to school on Thursdays, for computer class. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
A warm welcome to all my Kindergarten families ! I hope you enjoyed the summer and you and your child are ready for this year's exciting learning adventure. Kindergarten is an exciting time for your child. It is a time for exploring so many new things and places and a time to learn. This year your child will be learning letters,sounds, and how to read. Your child will also learn math, science and social studies. Your child will also learn how to cut, paste, color and draw. However, the most important part of your child's learning experience this year will be learning how to make new friends, be respectful and responsible students.While Kindergarten marks an important transition in your child's life, it is important that children still get to be children. "Your child is in for a treat!" Kindergarten life is sweet with all the fun and exciting activities. Let's all gear up for a successful school year! I look forward to working with you and your child this year. If you have any questions or concerns please reach out and contact me at

I have been busy setting up the classroom for all of my wonderful new students. All school supplies for your child have been supplied by the school or myself. If you signed out a chromebook for your child please keep the chromebook at home. However, there is a small list of items that I am asking parents to send to school with their child during the first week of school. The following items are:
* 1 placemat of your choice for your child to use as a mat on the floor or outside during instructional time.( please write your child's name on the back of the placemat)
*Sweater or sweatshirt labeled with your child's name (classroom can get chilly and weather outside is unpredictable)
*Change clothes in a plastic bag with your child's name
*Water bottle labeled with child's name
Here are some additional items that are optional:
tissue box, pack of baby wipes, individual hand sanitizer (please label all items with your child's name)
Thank you for visiting our class page. Please visit our class page each week for an update on school events,classroom events as well as updates to our weekly curriculum. The weekly curriculum will include skills and strategies introduced in Literacy, Math, Social Studies and Science.
I will be using Google Classroom to post assignments, daily and weekly announcements and all other important information for your child. The code to join my Google Classroom will be emailed to your child's district email account. Students are REQUIRED to join my Google Classroom, as it will be used for important information regarding our classroom activities.
The Elms PTN will be providing each child with an Elms folder and your child will bring this folder back and forth to school in their backpack. This folder will be used as a tool for us to communicate daily. Each day, your child will bring home this folder. If there is a need to send anything back to school, it will come home in the "Return to School" side of the folder. Homework is one example of something that would be in the "Return to School" side. Any notes from home to school regarding dismissal, lunch money, or any correspondence should be put in the folder on the " Return to School" side. A good parent-teacher relationship is essential for a successful school year. You are always welcome to contact me!
I will also be using the Remind App. Remind is a communication platform that will be utilized throughout the school year to stay connected with you. It is a wonderful tool to keep you updated with important information regarding our school day, changes in schedules or last-minute notices. To join the Remind App, please follow the directions to join that were sent home with your child the first week of school.

Literacy: We use a terrific phonics program called Fundations. In class, students will work on letter identification, sounds, and letter formation. At home,they can practice by tracing letters with their fingers, starting at the top and going down. As they finish tracing the letter, they can practice saying the letter name, the keyword picture and then the sound. For example, Tt, top, /t/. Additionally, we will be learning 2-3 new trick words each week. These words are trick words that we can not sound out. In the coming weeks, I will be
Writing: Writer's Workshop is a designated time where students become “authors”. After each mini-lesson, students will have independent writing time where they will choose their own topic for their writing and have an opportunity to practice skills and strategies taught in the mini-lesson. By giving the students choices in their topics, the writing becomes authentic, engaging, and meaningful. During this independent writing time I will meet with individuals or small groups to conference and encourage their growth as authors. Students will learn to write, revise, edit, and publish stories throughout the school year. sending home fun ways to practice reviewing these words at home!
Math: Envision 2.0. At the beginning of each topic, we will send home a parent information home page along with our math vocabulary words. You can keep these at home to use for review. After each lesson, we will send home the corresponding homework page to complete at home. These pages are meant to be done with help and returned the following day unless otherwise noted.
Social Studies & Science: Science and Social Studies will alternate thematic units. These units of study will be incorporated throughout our school day!
