November 13 – 17

Popcorn Words:  or, for.  We discovered that the word or is in the word for.  We referred to one of our reading strategy buddies…chunky monkey to discover this chunk inside the word.  We found the chunk in many different words this week.

Math:  This week we continued to work in Unit 2.  Continuing to notice the patterns in adding 1 and taking away 1 from numbers.  The Kindergartners also practiced writing these number sentences.  I was so impressed by their ability!!  We are even beginning to write objects to show our number sentences.  It is so fun to see them build on these math skills.

Readers Workshop:  This week we talked about the different strategies we can use to help us read.  We talked about how some words we just know…maybe they are our popcorn words?  Like the word I….we can read that one fast because we know it.  They also discovered that they can look at a picture to help them figure out a tricky word.  We talked about using our eagle eye to look at the picture and then try the first letter in the word to see if that matches?  We also talked about how we need to get our lips ready to read words.  Our lips help us hear sounds and get us hearing the sounds in a word.  The Kindergartners practiced these skills this week with some writing examples that they are keeping in their blue book boxes at school.  It has been so fun to see them connect these strategies to their reading practice.

Writers Workshop:  This week we dove deeper into writing like a scientist.  The Kindergartners finished their first 4 page booklet on a topic.  Their topic they finished writing about was frogs.  Each of them were given a picture of a specific frog that they wrote about. The Kindergartners made a front cover and then 3 pages with details.  Some details included the main color of their frog, their frogs name and if it was smooth or bumpy.  The Kindergartners did a GREAT job!!

Mystery Readers:

  • Tuesday Ainsley was sooo surprised to see her Grandma walk through the door as our Mystery Reader.  Her Grandma read the book Ella Takes the Cake by Carmela D’Amico.  An adorable story about a little elephant who wants independence.  Along her travels she helps so many other elephants.  Such a cute story about helping others and seeing things through to the end.  Thanks for visiting with us Ainsley’s Grandma!!

  • Thursday Ashlyn was overjoyed to see her Mom walk through our door as the Mystery Reader.  Mrs. Jones read us a great story!  Thank you so much for reading to us Mrs. Jones!!  So sorry I was not here to hear the story too….or take some fun pics to share!!!

Buttons:  Oh what fun our classroom buddy Buttons has had visiting all of your homes!!!  Thanks so much for taking such good care of him while he was in your care!!!  He will get a second chance to visit with you later in the school year!!

Homework:  This week your child brought home an October Homework Award with smarties!  I will be giving out these awards to students who complete their homework every week each month.  I am sooooo proud of all of their hard work and your continued support with our school and home connections.

November 6 – 10

Popcorn Words: This week we learned the words am, are and little.  

Math: This week we continued working on Unit 2.  We are working on finding groups of 10 and then more to make a number.  Also, we continued to practice telling subtraction and addition stories.  The Kindergarteners LOVE acting these stories out during our Math time.  We pretended to walk through a park and see ducks in a pond to create an addition story.  Then, we pretended that some of those ducks flew away to create a subtraction story.  We also had fun on Friday with Math games.  We measured our friends with leaves, played cover the number, french fry number sentences and linked up teen numbers.  It was a lot of fun!!

Reader’s Workshop: This week we focused on setting in reader’s workshop.  The Kindergartners learned that setting is where the story takes place.  They also learned that setting can change throughout a story.  We read several Froggy books by Jonathon London to look at the different settings used in these books.  We saw Froggy in many different settings.  For example, in his bedroom, outside, at his friends house, in his tree house.  

Writer’s Workshop: We have been practicing our skills as being scientific writer’s.  This week we explored frogs.  Looking at several non fiction frog books to observe how non fiction writers label and zoom in on their pictures when making a book.  The kinders combined reading and writing this week and drew Froggy in a different setting.  Be careful to label the parts of their drawings and sound out their setting that they drew Froggy.  I saw froggy in settings on the playground, at the pool, at the beach and even in the woods.  

Social Studies:  We are beginning our study of wants and needs this week.  The Kinders have learned that a want is something that we do not need in order to survive.  While a need is something that we must have in order to survive.  They helped put different objects into wants and needs groups.  Learning that items like a video game, candy and toy are wants and that food, water, shelter and love are needs.  We will explore more about wants and needs throughout the month.  They enjoyed hearing the book Berenstain’s Bears Get the Gimmies by Stan Berenstain.  A great book to reinforce our study of wants and needs.  

Split Lit. Centers: This week we continued working on our pre-reading and reading skills during our split lit. centers. We are continuing to build on our skills by working in small groups each getting a chance to work with Mrs. Stutz.  

Veterans Day:  We explored our Let’s Find Out magazine and learned all about veterans on Friday.  They loved making their own soldier boy or girl during our free choice time.  Thank you to all of our veterans for your service!!  

Remember:  Just a reminder to pack your Kindergartener the appropriate outdoor gear for our changing weather.  I will be sending home information soon to look for volunteers for Winter Bundlers.  Winter Bundlers help get our Kindergarteners ready for recesses.  I am looking for help during the times of 11:20 a.m. and 12:00 noon daily during our snowy times.  It would require coming into school to help our Kindergarteners get ready for recess with their extra clothing and then helping them get ready for lunch.  If you know you are interested please email me at jstutz1@hpseagles.net.  I will be sending home information as well to ask for help.   

Backpack Snacks:  Be sure to remember to pack your Kinder two snacks everyday.  We enjoy an a.m. and p.m. snack time everyday!  It helps us keep our bellies happy and brains ready to learn!

Mystery Reader:  Claire was so surprised to see her Mom walk through the door as our Mystery Reader on Friday.  Mrs. Mieras visited with us and read us two wonderful books.  The first book she shared was  Click, Clack, Ho! Ho! Ho! by Doreen Cronin and Betsy Lewin.  A perfect book to get us in the holiday spirit!!  The Kinders loved seeing the animals try to squeeze down the chimney!!  Next Mrs. Mieras read us The Pigeon Needs a Bath! by Mo Willems.  A funny book about Pigeon who thinks he doesn’t need a bath and really does!  Then pigeon finds out he REALLY does love the bath after all!!  Thanks for visiting and reading with us Mrs. Mieras!!  

PE Cares Food Drive:  Thank you all so much who have already contributed to our food drive.  We LOVED carrying these products to our gym class this week, we counted 79 pieces!!!  Our food drive ends on Nov. 16, thank you for donating and thinking of those in need this season!!  

THANK YOU:  A HUGE thank you to all of you for meeting with me this week during conferences!  It was such a pleasure to get a chance to share your child’s progress with you.  I am so VERY proud of all of the Kindergartners!!!  Thank you for working together as a team to build these wonderful little minds!!

October 30 – November 3

Popcorn Words:  This week the words in and all popped into our classroom.  We found these words in our daily message, in books we read and practiced writing them during our writing time.

Writer’s Workshop:  This week we dove into writing like scientists.  Starting with drawing and labeling the parts of our shoe.  They really loved gathering a leaf as well to write about.  The kindergartners loved taking a “gallery walk” to see their classmates writing.  We have added a magnifying glass to our tools as writers this week.  Using their magnifying glasses to explore the texture, colors and uniqueness of each object and then drawing it with detail.  We are continuing this “informational writing” next week as well.  Learning how to notice all the details around us, labeling parts and then telling our readers about the item.

Reader’s Workshop:  This week we wrapped up what a character is in a story.   They got to use their own voices to say the words that the characters say in the book Froggy Learns to Swim.   We talked about how in books characters can also talk.  In books we can see that they are speaking because there may be speech bubbles or “quotation marks.”  They explored their own books to find these items.  The Kindergarteners also loved playing the different characters in the book Froggy Learns to Swim.   Getting a chance to say what Froggy said, or his Mom or Dad from the book.  Next week we will explore the setting in a book.  The Kindergarteners are really amazing little book lovers!  Everyday showing me popcorn words they find in books, quotation marks, periods and other details that show me they are excited about becoming readers!!

Math:  This week we continued to work on Unit 2.  We explored shapes, number writing, five groups and adding more to make a new number.  The Kindergarteners have also explored telling more math stories from looking at a picture in our Math workbooks.  Everyday we warm up our Math brain by doing some counting to 100 with, Let’s Get Fit with Jack Hartmann, a Kids Music Channel on YouTube.  The Kindergarteners also enjoy practicing their counting by 10’s by doing a Climbing Up This Mountain by Harry Kindergarten Music.  We are doing a great job of our number awareness and addition and subtraction skills.  Every Friday we play Math games that incorporate some kind of practicing of the skills we have done during the week.  This week the Kindergarteners enjoyed playing a fill the bucket game where they added candy corn to fill a small bucket with the corresponding number they rolled.  They also practiced writing their numbers with a play dough activity where they rolled the play dough into a snake and put it in the shape of the number they had, then wrote the number several times.  The Kindergartners also measured and answered questions about their stuffed animal they brought in for our special stuffed animal day.  Another game was a find the matching leaf game.  The Kinders pulled a leaf from a basket that had dots on it, they then found the matching written number on a leaf game board.  They always have a lot of fun during this Friday Math games time!

5th Grade Buddy Fun:  On Tuesday the Kindergartners loved having our 5th grade buddies join us for some Math fun.  They worked together to create their own Pumpkin Math Number Book.  Thanks for visiting 5th graders!!

Split Lit. Centers:  This week we have done a great job of continuing our new split lit. center activities.   The students are continuing to work on letters, sounds, rhyming and sight words.  Please continue to review these skills at home.  Often as we continue to build on our skills we can slip in recognizing those letters and sounds.  Don’t forget to revisit these skills periodically.   The Kindergarteners have done a great job!!

A Reminder:  As our cooler weather is nearing closer please be sure to send the appropriate clothing with your Kindergartener for outside recess.

PE Cares Food Drive:  From November 1 – 16 we will be taking donations of canned or non-perishable food items to benefit our local food pantries.  Each time we go to gym we will donate our items…so far we don’t have any.  Please consider donating a few items to help out our school wide effort to stock these pantries for a very busy needy time of the year.

Button’s Travel Update:  Our classroom stuffed animal puppy, Button’s has been making his way to the Kindergarteners houses for his sleepover.  It looks like he has been having a GREAT time!!  Thank you for taking such good care of him while he is in your care!!  The Kindergarteners are soooooo excited to get a chance for their overnight with Button’s.  He will make his way to everyones’s home.  Be on the lookout he will be making his way to your home very soon!

Mystery Reader:  Brody was totally shocked when he saw his Mom walk through our door as Mystery Reader.  Mrs. Husted read us Nibbles the Book Monster by Emma Tarlett. An adorable story about a little monster that eats his way through stories.  Thank you so much for being our Mystery Reader Mrs. Husted!!  If you are interested in being a mystery reader in our classroom please visit our Mystery Reader tab on the left and sign up through  our signup.com page or email me directly at jstutz1@hpseagles.net to set up a time.

Book Fair:  This week we will be having our Book Fair in our library.  A flyer came home with your child letting you know all about our Book Fair event.  Our class will “preview” the book fair on Tuesday, Nov. 7.  The Kindergarteners will get to make out a “wish list” of the books they are interested in with he price listed.  They will bring these wish lists home for you to look at.  We will be doing a “buy day” on Thursday, November 9.  We do not typically purchase books together as a class, I only send those kiddos down to the book fair with an adult who are purchasing.  If you are planning to let your child buy a book on Thursday please send in the wish list with the title circled and money needed.  Our book fair is also open during our conference evenings on Monday (4-8 p.m.) and Wednesday (4-8 p.m.).

Writer’s Workshop:  This week we continued to write about small moments.  We wrote small moments that incorporated our popcorn words.  For example, they wrote and drew brown objects and then wrote the sentence, “Here are brown things.”  We focused on adding details to our drawings, labeling and sounding out words.  We wrapped up our small moment writing.  Next week we will begin a new writing unit, writing like a scientist!!

Reader’s Workshop:  This week we wrapped up our practice of retelling stories.  We learned that we can retell a story by using picture, props and even act it out.  The Kindergartners had a blast retelling the story of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? by Bill Martin, Jr.  They made their own Brown Bear hats and practiced retelling the stories to friends using a picture bookmark.  

Math:  This week we continued to work on Unit 2.  We explored shapes, number writing, five groups and adding more to make a new number.  The Kindergarteners have also explored telling more math stories from looking at a picture in our Math workbooks.  Everyday we warm up our Math brain by doing some counting to 100 with, Let’s Get Fit with Jack Hartmann, a Kids Music Channel on YouTube.  The Kindergarteners also enjoy practicing their counting by 10’s by doing a Climbing Up This Mountain by Harry Kindergarten Music.  We are doing a great job of our number awareness and addition and subtraction skills.

Bucket Fillers:  Our class has been working on their kindness and helping others over the last few weeks.  We call this being a bucket filler.  They learned about what a bucket filler is by listening to the book Have You Filled a Bucket Today?  by Carol McCloud.  Each Kindergartner has a pocket (bucket) that they can add tickets too when they have been a bucket filler.  I love catching the kids being kind and making great choices.  They get a bucket filler ticket and add the ticket to their bucket.  Then every couple of weeks they receive a treat for their bucket filler tickets.  This week the Kinders received a sucker.  I am so proud of seeing them make such great choices and treat their peers with kindness.  We will continue this the entire school year.  Promoting kindness and helping others always.

A Reminder:  As our cooler weather is nearing closer please be sure to send the appropriate clothing with your Kindergartener for outside recess.

Reader’s Workshop: The Kindergarteners are continued to work on their sharing and retelling skills this week.  We worked with our reading buddies to share parts in our books that maybe we learned something new or thought, that happened to me!

Writer’s Workshop:   This week we continued to plan, say, sketch and write our small moment stories.  The Kindergartners wrote moments that used our sight words in them.  For example, we thought about where we see a stop sign and then wrote the sentence, A stop sign is red.  We added labels and practiced stretching sounds as we wrote words.

Math: We are continuing to work on Unit 2 in Mathematics.

Split Lit: During our split lit. time we work in two different groups working on targeted learning skills.  One day your child might work with me on our new EBLI strategies with sounding out words.  While on another day they might work with Mrs. Fabbro, one of our Kindergarten Para-pro’s, and practice with letters and sounds.  We work on many different skills throughout the week together.

Mystery Reader:  On Friday Madison jumped and ran to greet her little brother James and Mom as they entered our room as our Mystery Readers.  The Kindergartners loved hearing the book Bone Soup by Cambria Evans.  An adorable take on a classic, Stone Soup.  Mrs. Paranacott also donated this book to our classroom to enjoy.  Then surprised the Kinders with a treat of their own to enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting with us Mrs. Parnacott and James!!

I look forward to sharing their literacy skills, math, writing and social skill progress with you when we meet. I will try to keep each conference to 15 min. long so I stay on time for the evening. Please come with any questions and arrive on time to my classroom. I ask that if your child does attend that they wait in the hallway while we have our conference in the classroom. Thanks!

Be Aware…

Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on October 19, 2017

There have been multiple cases of strep throat diagnosed in the last few weeks in our school.   Your child may have recently been exposed to strep throat at school. Properly treated cases are no longer infectious. However, please watch your child for the symptoms which usually appear 2-5 days after exposure.

Cause: Strep throat and strep throat with a rash (scarlet fever) are common bacterial infections in children spread by coughing or sneezing.

Common Signs and Symptoms:

  •   Throat pain
  •   Difficultyswallowing
  •   Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
  •   Tiny red spots on the soft or hard palate — the area at the back of the roof    of the mouth
  •   Swollen, tender lymph glands (nodes) in your neck
  •   Fever
  •   Headache
  •   Rash
  •   Stomachache and sometimes vomiting, especially in younger children

Call your Health Provider: If you recognize any symptoms and suspect strep. For accurate diagnosis, a throat culture needs to be taken. Symptoms generally occur 2-3 days before a culture will show positive results. Following a culture being taken, your child should remain at home until you know the results.  Please call the office at 797-9797 to let the office know if your child tests positive for strep.  Our school needs to report these illnesses to the Health Department.
