Primary Composition Notebooks

There has been some confusion as to the Primary Journal Composition Notebook on the Kindergarten Supply List. The above pictures are the correct notebook required. The bottom half of each page is lined, and the top half of each page in this composition book is blank so that students can illustrate their written work. If you are having difficulty finding these notebooks in stores, you can also purchase them online. Each student is required to send in two. Thank you to parents who have sent in more than the required amount! If you are able to send in more than two, we would greatly appreciate it! Also, if you have had luck finding these notebooks, please share by adding a comment to this posting as to where you purchased yours.

First Day

We had a wonderful first day of school together today! We went on a Scavenger Hunt around the school to help find Corduroy's lost button, practiced the rituals and routines of our classroom, read stories, talked about what we did on our summer vacations, and even got to see an assembly! We had a great day and can't wait to have a wonderful year together! We would love to hear comments about how your child's first day went!

P.S. Don't forget to wear your new Chets Creek shirt tomorrow!

Welcome California Dreamers

We are so excited to meet you all and have you become a part of the classroom we have been working so hard to create for you! This year we will be traveling around the world in 180 days! Kindergarten is North America. We have chosen to transform our classroom into California.
