Christmas concert details
On Thursday, December 13 we are having our Christmas concert at Lamont High School. Please have your child arrive at the high school for 6pm. The concert will start at 6:30pm. It will be a great evening and the students are excited to show you their songs! When the show is over please meet us in our designated classroom, so your child can get their belongings and say goodbye to their teacher. We all look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening!
What We Are Learning
December is going to fly by! This month our theme is Christmas. Through the month, we will be reading Christmas stories, have Christmas themed centres, and completing various Christmas crafts and activities. We are learning the letters H, K, and B this month.
In Math, we will be working on counting and recognizing numbers from 0-10. Also, we will also be focusing on recognizing at a glance sets from 1-5. We will continue to make patterns. The students will be looking for and creating patterns that have a core of 2 or 3 elements that repeat. For example are: triangle, square,(the core) triangle, square, triangle, square…
During Read Alouds, we will be focussing on being able to answer questions about the stories, retelling, and making predictions. When you are reading with your child at home, ask them question throughout the story and at the end. For example, “who was in the story?”, “where were they?”, “what do you think will happen next?” etc.
As we continue to learn the letters of the alphabet, please support your child at home by talking about letters. Have them look for a certain letter when reading their library books, identify letters on various labels, sing the alphabet song, etc. I have attached other ideas for you.
On Thursday, December 13 we have our Christmas concert at 6:30pm. Further details will be sent home as the day gets closer.

What We are Learning
Our themes for the month of October will be Fall, Thanksgiving, and Halloween. We have many fun activities centered on these themes.
We will continue to work on sorting and number recognition. To help us learn, we have been playing various number games in our classroom. You can assist your child by pointing out numbers you see around the home, the grocery store, or restaurant.
On Friday, October 19 we are going to Safety City in Edmonton. You will receive a permission form in your child’s agenda very soon. Please ensure your child is dressed for the weather as we are outside for a long time.
On Wednesday, October 31 we will have our classroom Halloween celebration. Please have your child bring their costume to school. We will have several activity stations and would like some parent volunteers. Keep an eye out for more information to come!
Your children have done such a great job settling into a brand new classroom and are continuing to adjust to the classroom routines. I have been really enjoying getting to know them!

A warm welcome to Lamont Elementary Kindergarten! We are looking forward to working with you to make this year one that will leave your children with the attitude that learning is exciting and that school is the next best place to home. We hope to provide an environment that is both stimulating and comfortable; one where your child is treated with respect and where he/she is expected to treat others with respect; a place that encourages your child to think, to discover, to care, to laugh.
Over the course of the school year, I will post newsletters and other important information here to keep you up to date with what is happening in Kindergarten.
I look forward to seeing you all!
