I hope that everyone is enjoying this cold wintery weather.  A reminder of our Sharing Assembly on Monday, January 21.  I have asked the children to bring in a pair of mittens to wear while we share our Mitten Poem with the audience.  Thursday, January 24 is Flag Day at LKS.  The Kindergarten classes are to dress to represent Canada on Thursday.  The children are encouraged to wear red and/or white clothing or anything with a maple leaf on it.  Show your spirit and wear your Canadian colours!
We are beginning a unit of measuring in math.  We discussed shorter/longer and bigger/smaller this week.  The Juniors differentiated objects due to their size and the Seniors sequenced objects from smallest to biggest.  Both classes will be completing measuring activities with their Reading Buddies this week.  The children are also including their last names on their leader charts.  It is wonderful to watch their independence as they print and practise their last names.
I will be sending home notes this week regarding the 100th day of school, upcoming February activities  (including interviews and Kindergarten Open Houses) and our trip to the theatre in March.  Please check your child's mailbag carefully.  A reminder that mailbags will be Monday and Thursday this week due to the PA Day on Friday.
I am continuing to introduce high frequency words to the class and we will be discussing "am" this week.  
They are predicting bitterly cold temperatures this week. I will open the classroom door early, so enter the classroom directly upon your arrival.  This keeps everyone warm and also ensures that the children are undressed and ready for the announcements in the morning and ready for the start of school in the afternoon.
Thanks for your support.
