Sample Kindergarten Newsletter to Parents From Teacher
Every week I sent home a newsletter to parents so that they knew exactly what their child did that week in school. I included announcements, reminders and specific topics that were covered in each subject. Here is a sample:
Our Week in Kindergarten (Week of 5/28/13)
This will be the last newsletter. For the next couple of weeks, we will be finishing up certain topics, preparing for graduation having field day, attending a talent show and having the concert rehearsal.
Today was the last day of exchanging leveled readers. All books are due back on Monday.
Field day will be next Friday, June 7th. Lunch will be provided. The children have a choice of a hamburger or a hotdog. Plus there will be snacks and desserts to eat. If your child prefers, lunch may be brought from home that day. Team colors will go home next week. Please have your child wear that color shirt.

Math – Ordinal numbers and counting objects in different configurations and arrays.
