Traffic Pattern Interruption

Beginning Wednesday, September 23, 2015, and commencing for the next two weeks, there will be significant road construction from the new High School site up to Dollar General.  From 9:00 am to 6:00 pm every day, Route 14 will be reduced to one lane of traffic.  It is predicted to cause SIGNIFICANT delays, possibly backing traffic all the way up to the turnpike and toward Ravenna to Lake Rockwell.    If you are arriving to school after 9:00 am or picking up a child early, please plan accordingly.  Also, at the conclusion of the day you may want to plan an alternate route home.  It is also possible there will be delays with buses in the afternoon.

Weekly Happenings in Kindergarten!

Weekly Happenings

In Mrs. Mercer’s class we have been learning our letters by exploring the names of our classmates.  We have learned that letters go together to make words or names.  We know how many letters make up our names and how many syllables our name has.  We are also comparing our names to see what names have the same letters and names that don’t.  We have been reading interactive letter stories where we learn what begins with the letter sound and make the letter sounds throughout the story.  We are also learning to identify and spell color words.

In math we have finished up our first Go Math chapter.  We talked about a circle, square, triangle, rectangle and a hexagon.  We also learned about their attributes and what makes each shape special.  We also explored using these shapes to build other shapes.  We are moving on to numbers!

Technology has been a big hit in Room 22.  We have been using our smart board games during center time and have recently received wireless headphones to wear.  We are pros on the I-pads and love using them during math stations and language art centers.  We also have been using the computer to visit starfall.com to watch videos and play games about each letter of the alphabet.
