* Winner, Winner, Turkey Dinner! ;) *

Happy November!

How did WE get here SO fast! Kindergarten FLIES by each year and I’m always in disbelief!  We are having a G R E A T year so far in Room 103!

Quick Recap:

1- WE WON, WE WON, WE WON!  Our Limeades for Learning projects were both funded! Thank you to every Sonic run, ever sticker and every vote!  You have helped make a difference in our classroom and we are so thankful.  Our brand new rug will be here this week!

2-  Thank you for the outstanding attendance for conferences.  I always enjoy visiting with parents and I especially enjoyed watching your child SHINE!  It was a GREAT day!

3- I’m so excited to see all of the “Turkeys in Disguise!”  Send them as soon as your finished so we can hang them up for the next two weeks.

Thank you again for all that you do!

On October 29th we will be doing student led conferences. This is a new way we are doing conferences!  This is a day that your child, you, and myself will get to spend 15-20 minutes showing off  their work, explaining how our day works, and setting a few goals with you.

Please sign up here for a time to come hear your child talk about his/her day and what they are most proud of.

*Limeades for Learning…what is it?*

We are full of excitement in room 103! Limeades for Learning has started! Sonic Drive-in partners with Donors Choose to give grants to teachers all around.  Teachers create projects and the HIGHEST votes win each week.

WE need your help!  Sign-up and VOTE everyday on the link provided below.

or..

Go to Sonic!  Ask for as many stickers as they will give you! Each sticker counts as 2 votes.  Although every vote matters, the stickers are what help the class win the most.  Tell everyone you know to help us earn stickers.  We are so excited to bring new things into our classroom.  Thank you for all of you help!

Morning Rituals Song: Little Miss Muffet

Morning Message:  Sorting letters, words and sentences; writing sentences in writing journals using out new sight words.

Literacy Stations:  We have be started our Busy Bee Stations this week!  We are having so much fun in these learning stations!  Please remember to send back the book bags EVERY day!  We need them at school to continue learning.

Interactive writing:  Fall sentences; create a fall word bank.

Shared Reading:  Fall books–Focus on parts of books and characters.

Thank you for sending the delicious apples!  We had a BLAST taste testing the different kinds, making a graph and making applesauce!

Here are some dates to remember:

-September 20th -Picture day AND Book Orders Due!

-September 26th- Half day for students/Teacher PLC Training day

Thank you for ALL that you do! It is an HONOR to spend my sweet days with your child!  We are having an awesome year! Stay tuned for a slide show of our days so far in our *SWEET* school year!

Love,

Mrs. Pinkalicious 🙂

 

*Celebrating our FIRST Full Week!*

Happy Sunday!

I hope that everyone is rested and ready for an exciting week! Last week was SO much fun! I am proud of my bunch for all that they learned and how KIND they are!  I have enjoyed getting to know each and every one of your sweethearts.  What a sweet year this will be! 🙂

Thank you for ALL of your support with out Sign-Up Genius wish list! Everything we needed was provided.  I am so thankful for you and your support.  I will update this sign up throughout the year as needed.

Just a reminder:

  1.  Send a bottle of water with your child every day.  (The water fountain in our classroom is broken.)
  2. Send a jacket with your child.  (It is *COLLLLDDD* in our classroom!)

Stay tuned this week for a snack note (if you’ve already sent snack, you will not have a note in your child’s folder.)

Also, watch for a fun project to work on at home!  We are decorating our writing folder cover.  I will send home a sheet of paper for you to FILL with pictures of things your child loves.  It could be anything from favorite toys, colors, clothes, food, family, friends, teams….whatever!  This special sheet is fun to share with the class but it also serves as a reminder of ideas for writing projects throughout the year.  It’s easier than it sounds! Last year, Maycie had to make hers and I added a bunch of pictures (clip art and personal pictures) on my Open Office/Microsoft Word program on my computer. I printed the page, cut them out and glued them on–DONE! You can also use magazines or newspapers. Keep it simple and let your child get involved in selecting the pictures that they want.  When it’s finished, send it to school and I will do the rest. 🙂

Thank you for ALL that YOU do,

Mrs. Busha

Welcome 2018-2019 Kinder Cupcakes!

Hello!  My name is Mrs. Kyndra Busha, also known as Mrs. Pinkalicious by MANY!  I am excited and preparing for our new school year!  In case you’re wondering, “school supplies season” and “back to school” is MUCH like Christmas morning to a teacher!  The anticipation of a new year, new class (mixed with some sadness of seeing our previous Kinders grow up into Firsties), and new adventures is SO exciting for me!  I am excited to see you and meet you in a couple of weeks!
