Dr. Seuss Week Follow-Up

This past week, we had a great time celebrating a beloved author, with a fun spirit week and reading many of his books. We noticed that as an author he used lots of rhyming, silly words and humor, repetition, and many sight words. Here are a couple pictures from this week in which we celebrated a wonderful writer who left a legacy of reading that will be carried on for many years to come! 

Assessments

As you know that conferences are coming up. Beyond conferences, this is a time we take at this time of year to assess where the children are at and to see how they are progressing. The majority of these assessments need to be done one-on-one as it is typically the only way to see what each child truly knows at this young age. Though these grades have no affect on their college acceptance letters, they are interesting and informative to see how your child has adjusted to their first year in elementary school so far. If there are areas your child may not be progressing as quickly as possibly you expected or as quickly as a sibling might have in the past…no need to worry. Children progress and learn differently and at various paces. As with my own children, when they are struggling in an area, we take a little more of our home practice time to focus on that area. If you need specific ideas, we can discuss that in our conference. 

If you child is not needing a conference, are there any areas in school that your child is feeling are more challenging or that they may have dislike? For these areas you can try to maybe focus on in a new or fun way at home to build a fresh opinion or new perspective on that subject area. 

EBS Jog A Thon

This past Friday, you received a packet regarding the Jog-A-Thon in your child’s folder. Check out this video to tell you a little more about it and give you some visuals on what our day will be like! It’s a day of fun, exercise and loads of excitement from the class. Read through the packet and let me know if there are any questions. We are scheduled to have this day on Friday, March 22nd!

If you have any feedback on our 206 class, I am always looking for ways to improve and would love to hear ways you may see to better the TK experience for the remainder of this and for future TK students. I welcome any feedback and truly value your opinion. 

Kindergarten Science Night

Our turn is coming up! Next Thursday, March 7th @ 6:30, EBS will be having its TK/K Science Night. This night takes place in the MPR. The organizers request for every science night that no siblings attend as there are limited materials for the experiments and it is a special night for you and your child to experience some Science fun together! Come and enjoy! 

EBS Idol Audition

I’m not sure if you saw the past post about EBS Idol! This is a very fun and unique EBS night! Besides the fun entertainment, it is an awesome opportunity to have your child experience a true and admirable skill of being on stage in front of an audience. Some kids love this and some kids are frightened by it, but for all children it takes true bravery and a great sense of pride when it is over! You will see a variety of piano performances, cultural dances, solos, dances, tricks, and skits that are performed. Consider signing your child up for a solo act or two perform with a friend or group! You won’t regret it. 

Sign-Ups end on March 5th and are located on the doors of the school library!
