Kindergarten is Hoot!!


 

 

 

Welcome to Mrs. Greta’s Class


My name is Greta Phillips. I went to college at Lincoln Memorial University. I am married to Danny Phillips. We have four beautiful children: Courtney, Joshua, Braxton, and Dalton.  I love my job!!! I get excited every year to meet my new class. Kindergarten is a fun time to learn new and exciting things. I cannot wait to meet my class!!!

I keep parents updated on twp free apps called "DoJo" and "Remind". It is a free app to download. For the "Dojo" go to www.classdojo.com. I will give you a code to sign up. I can keep you informed of what is happening in class/school as well as showing your childs' behavior and text me if there is a change in the way your child goes home that day. The "Remind" app, is easy. I only need your cell phone number. We can text personally about your child. I also share upcoming events that is school wide.

 

Homework

 

Look for a Homework Bag

Your child will have weekly sight words to learn. They will have to write the words and study them to know them by sight. Students do not have to spell them. Test is on every Friday. Students will have a weekly story that they have to read and the book needs to be brought back every day. I will take the small books up every Friday. Each week, we read a new story.

 

Your child will be given a sight word notebook that is different from weekly sight words. This sight word notebook will stay in their Daily Folder/Notebook. Students study this at their own pace. They need to let me know when they are ready to test. Please keep it nice and clean. They can not write in the book or go on to the next page until it is assigned. The first three students to complete the sight word notebook, will get a Happy Meal from me during snack time.

 

Please send a snack daily. When it's snack time and they do not have a snack, they get upset watching others eat. Thank you!


Supply List

 

2 boxes of crayons

2 bottles of glue

A  3 prong folder

2 packs of #2 pencils

 

Wish List: Any extras of the  following items would be appreciated:

Lots of white school (bottle) glue, pencils, crayons, Baby wipes or Clorox wipes, Germ-X,  and Kleenx Tissues

 

Just a few reminders.....

Please, send a snack with your child everyday.

You may want to keep extra clothes in his/her backpack in case of an accident.

 

Please keep the office and  myself informed if phone numbers change.

Please , note that attendance does count in kindergarten. If your

child is not at school, you may put either a Dr. excuse or parent note inside daily folder. I will turn it in to the office. Students will have a daily folder that we will use to communicate. Dr. excuses, notes from home, homework, etc. can be found inside. I will check folders daily.

Kindergarten teachers send weekly word list and /or notes home so parents are aware of upcoming skills and school activities. Please read the notes , Dojo, and Remind text. We learn and/or review skills daily to prepare your child for the STAR test and first grade.  It is extremely important that your child attends school everyday.
