                 Hello and welcome to Mrs. A's  Kindergarten class! 

                            aylwardp@newmarket.k12.nh.us
A very late but very grateful thank you to you all for our classroom supplies of wipes, disinfectants, post it notes, waters, socks for erasing white boards, etc! There may be germs all around but we are pretty healthy thanks to your support!

It is hard to believe that Halloween is this week! Although I do not do BIG parties, we will have some Halloween based activities, both academic and crafty as well as taking part in the Kindergarten Costume Parade. After the parade we will enjoy festive snacks.  Please send in your child's costume on Wednesday Oct 31st...no blood, makeup to apply or weapons please.

We have been learning lots in reading with our SuperKids! We have learned the letters Cc,Oo, Gg,Aa, and we are learning Dd. We have been learning the sounds of the letters, how to recognize them and how to write them in upper and lower case. You all have access to games on the SuperKids website at home. I hope you and your child enjoy visiting it as we continue to work our way through the alphabet. We have learned some great songs and vocabulary to go with each letter.

In math we are working on the numbers from 0-20 and will be pushing to 50 quite soon. We are counting, learning the days of the week, months of the year, names of shapes (2 dimensional right now), understanding 10 frames, clusters (like on dice and dominoes) and tally marks. We are also learning to play math games with our partners.

In Science we have learned the life cycle of an apple tree and have begun talking about pumpkins. Our field trip to DeMeritt Hill Farm brought what we learned to life and there isn't anything better than an apple straight off of the tree. Crunch!!! Thank you to our chaperones! We couldn't have done it without you!!

Our field trip yesterday to Seacoast United was loads of fun! I wish I could have captured the squeals of laughter for you! Coach Carl was fabulous and kept our class on the move! Ask your child if they were a shark or a surfer! Our next field trip won't be until Spring when we go to the Rochester Opera House! Yes please...we will need chaperones for that!!!

Remember our parent teacher conferences start this Thursday! I look forward to bragging about your children!
