Our class is trying to climb to the top of the jungle mural! For each 15 minutes you read with your child at home, please write the name of the book and the amount of time read in the communication folder. Your child gets a sticker for every 15 minutes and his/her reading monkey gets to move up a step on the mural for every hour and 15 minutes. Our classroom goal is to get all reading monkeys to the top!
All children in kindergarten are treated with respect. All students are expected to treat other students and adults in the building with kindness and respect. This includes using good old fashioned manners. We work all year long on manners and showing respect and kindness. My experience has shown that kindergarteners are better at this than some of the older kids! Good job kindergarten!
