All class updates will be through Seesaw. Thank you!
Our first four days of school went well!! We learned a lot about each other, the rules of the classroom to keep us safe, and how to use our school supplies.
This week we hit the road running. We begin our letter identification and letter sounds, handwriting, and looking for patterns in math.
I will not be sending home homework, however, your child may bring some papers home that look unfinished. That may be because I ran out of time. I tell students they can take their papers home to play school and finish them at home….IF THEY WANT TO. They can bring it back the next day IF THEY WANT TO for me to look at their work and give them mounds of praise for a job well done.
Thank you for your cooperation signing up for all of the things that will keep you updated about our class, our school building, and our district. I have several links on my blog if you ever need to reference something. https://blogs.pennmanor.net/ckinser/
Parent volunteers: YES PLEASE. But you MUST fill out OUR district volunteer and background check, even if you already have your clearances for your work or even if you already are a teacher (even in the Penn Manor district…yes, even I had to get my clearances to volunteer for my daughter’s soccer team when she was in high school). The forms are long BUT you keep that volunteer status for 5 years! Here is the link to get started. (It’s also on my blog under Volunteer Applications) https://www.pennmanor.net/district/volunteers/
Once the district approves your paperwork, I will be notified. I will contact you to set up volunteer times that work with your schedule. 🙂
Thank you for sending me a great group of students. It’s going to be a fun and active year!!
