    **If you have not already done so, make sure you have logged into your child's gmail account and accepted the invite to our classroom.  This is different than this class page. See the log in information below. (for the math) You only need to continue onto the easybridge part if you are looking to see the math book.

     Parents:  Here is the Kindergarten Lesson Plans for the next 8 days.  They are also posted on your child's google classroom.  I prefer your child to work on the lessons on their google classroom account.  They can easily access the math assignments and I can give them feedback.  

     Remote Lesson Plans for March 30th-April 8th 

      Parents, I want to leave this message for you here....
    Right now, don't worry about your child regressing in school. Every single kid in the USA is in this boat and they all will be OK! When we get back to the classroom, we will meet them where they are and go from there. At the end of all of this, your child's mental health will be more important than their academic skills. And how they felt at this time will stay with them long after the memory of these weeks is long gone. So, keep that in mind every single day!

     How Can You Help Your Child At Home:

    please review all sight words taught to date
     
    Review letters, sounds, blends & digraphs (Fundations)

    Supplies

     crayons

    Your child will need a backpack that will hold a 9 x 12 folder.  Please make sure your child’s name is in everything that comes to school.  (They tend to forget what they own)  Also, it will be beneficial if they have crayons, pencils, scissors, and glue at home for homework.   Please label it with your child's name.  Our class can always use tissues, wipes, and Lysol wipes to keep our room sanitized.  I am requesting that you send in a family photo for the kids to put in their cubby.   Thank you!!
