My name is Mrs. Shaltens.  My classroom number is A114. 

We have gotten off to a great start in Kindergarten!  We are working on learning classroom rules and procedures to keep us safe.  We are focusing on the letter S , D and A this week. We are writing our names and practicing starting at the TOP of the line and pulling down.  In Math, we are counting and using circle counters to show one to one correspondence. We are also starting to practice writing our numbers.   We are beginning Challenge and are learning to track words in a story from left to right when we are reading.  In Social Studies, we are learning about what makes us special and sharing about ourselves with the class. This week in Science, we began observing apples using sight, touch, sound and smell.   

Please look for the Homework sheet that should stay in your child's Boomerang folder.  That sheet will be turned in by your child to me on Friday, Oct.12. Your child is also bringing home a Reading folder each night. Please read together and talk the story.   Thank you so much for your support in our Kindergarten adventure!!


Snack policy:

Here are the recommended district-approved snacks for the classroom:
FRUIT, VEGETABLES, CHEESE, PRETZELS, GOLDFISH AND NUT FREE GRANOLA BARS.  Please try to stick to this specific list due to allergies and items processed in peanut factories. 
Please refer to this list when making your snack selection for your child. Please write your child's name and "SNACK" on it so they can grab it from the snack buckets at the appropriate time.
