Mrs. Piszczor’s Kinder-Bee Classroom Newsletter

Our fourteenth weekly newsletter is here!! In these newsletters, I will give an overview of what will be covered each week in language arts, writing, math & any other important topics or dates. I will include any important dates or reminders at the beginning followed by what we will be doing this week.  

Important Reminders:

  • December 20th, 21st and 22nd Holiday Concert Dates (please see page 3 for details).
  • December 21st Kinder Holiday Party!
  • December 22nd Winter Break Begins & School Resumes on Wednesday, January 10th.
  • No homework this week, but please read nightly and keep practicing those sight words over break!  

 

Our Week at a Glance -

Fundations- Unit Test Monday covering all the lowercase letters/sounds we have been learning the last weeks.

 

Language Arts- We will be doing a unit of study of, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” We will not be focusing on the Christmas aspect, but ways the that Mr. Grinch & his heart grew, by learning the real reason for the holiday season and ways we as kindergarteners and young people can make other hearts and our own grow, too! We will be making holiday cards for the children of St. Jude and designing adoption folders for a local pet shelter Dr. Kibbons has made us aware of.  We will also be comparing/contrasting The Grinch at the beginning and end of the story and using adjectives to describe him. It’ll be a great unit!

 

Math- We will be continuing Topic 4 after winter break as I do not want to rush our progression into comparing & ordering numbers.  We will be reviewing based on time availability.

 

Miscellaneous-

  •  Library Friday! One last time to return, renew or check out books before winter break!

 

 

Spirit Week-

Monday Crazy Hair/Hat Day

Tuesday Pajama Day! (My personal favorite!)

Wednesday Crazy Sock Day!

Thursday Viking Spirit Day!

Friday Festive Friday! Wear red, green or your favorite festive attire!

 

 


 

 

Holiday Concert Information:

Kindergarten will be singing three songs as a class then singing in the whole school finale at the end of the concert.

December 20th Matinee Performance Students need to be back to school by 1:35pm in their concert attire and sent down to our classroom from the office, then please head to the auditorium for the concert. Students will be here from 1:30pm-3pm then will be dismissed from the office where I will bring students to be collected at 3pm.  Doors open at 1:15, please keep your student with you until 1:35 then send them down to our classroom.

 

December 21st Evening Performance Students need to be back at school at 5:45pm for the 6pm-7:15pm show time in concert attire.  Students can be collected at 7:15pm down at our classroom.  Please walk down to collect your student after the finale, I cannot send them with an older sibling, I must see you.

 

December 22nd During School Hours This performance is during our normal school day.  Students are welcome to come to school in concert attire and will be picked up at normal 11:15 dismissal time.  This performance is for the students and staff viewing.

 

Before and after kindergarten performs, we will be watching, “Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman” back in our classroom until the end of the shows.  Students will also be able to color on sheets I provide and during the evening performance will be given a sweet treat and milk.  There will be an all school finale, which kindergarten will be a part of, so please plan to have your students stay the entire program.

 

Concert Attire- Please have your student dress in either red or green shirts and/or dresses with nice pants and/or skirts with dress shoes.  A Santa hat will be provided for your student to wear, as well an elf smock during the kindergarten performance.
