Wow! What a crazy busy week! Your kiddos have been busy learning the letters ABCD & E. They had to brainstorm words that began with those letters and write those words as well as draw pictures to go with the word. They have made headbands for each day as I'm sure you have seen! It has been a fun week in Mrs. Appel's class! At the end of each day we have taken a photo with our headbands on from each day. Monday we were in the shape of an apple for our apple headbands. For letters B, C, D, & E we just sat in the shapes of those letters!
With next week being a short week (only Monday & Tuesday) If your kiddo would like to match their show & share to the letter of the day here are the 2 letters for next week.
Monday: Letter Ff: Breyana, Eben, Georgia
Tuesday: Letter Gg: Hillari, Kyle, Oakley, Fisher
Hope everyone has a great, warm weekend!
Go Cats Go!

It has been so great to see and meet with parents for conferences! We really appreciate you taking the time to come in and meet with us! Some parents were asking about what sight words we have learned so far. Here is a picture of our sight words that we use in class so far!
Our class has buddies with Mrs. Eagle's 5th grade class every other Wednesday! Some of our kinders have siblings in her class! It is so exciting to see them interact with their older siblings! Today the kiddos got to roll a dice to create a pumpkin face. Their buddy or buddies also go to do this with them and then they got to color the pumpkins! Our class absolutely loves when they get to see their buddies.
We have been busy learning about our senses, tools, shapes and bugs for the past couple weeks! This week we have been learning how pumpkins grow with Halloween quickly approaching. Our high frequency site words that our class has been learning are,: I, can, the, we, see, a,, and like. Yesterday we did some interactive writing and formed sentences using our HFW.
Picture day is Wednesday September 19th. If you would like to purchase pictures, please send your kinder with the picture packet filled out on or before Wednesday!
I hope you all had a wonderful Labor Day weekend full of family and fun! :)
We had a great first few weeks of school! It has been so fun getting to know your child and getting into the routine of school. The students are starting to learn our school procedures and expectations, and working hard every day!
Baby Appel is due to arrive on Monday, September 10th, but she could make her appearance any day now! We are ONE week away and cannot wait to meet her! Miss Bidleman, our long-term sub, has been in our classroom to observe and to get to know your kiddos before she starts! Everything is planned and ready for her to take over! I will miss these students so much, but I know they will be in great hands!
On Thursday, we have Open House! This is for PARENTS ONLY, so please make other arrangements for your children if you can. We will have two- 30 minute sessions and I will be talking about the exact same thing so no need to come to both. The first session is from 6-6:30, then 6:30-7:00. It is from 6pm-7pm. Hope to see you all there to learn more about our classroom!
In Tuesday folders this week, you will see our first "homework" calendar. These are fun activities for you to do with your child at home. Please help them complete the calendar, sign and return at the end of the month and your child will get to choose from our treasure box! Just a reminder that students do NOT have to return GoMath homework! Just extra practice for at home :)
