Happy Thanksgiving!

Dear Parents,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving last week, spending time with family, enjoying time off and eating yummy foods. Also, thank you so much for all of your donations to the Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast last week. The children had a wonderful time celebrating Thanksgiving with their classmates.

Can you believe Winter Break is almost here? Only three short weeks of school left. As the weather gets colder outside, please be sure to have your child wear a coat to school.

In Language Arts, we will be reading many winter themed books in the coming weeks! I love this time of year! We will also be reviewing short a and short i word families.

In math, we will be learning ordinal numbers (1st-10th) in the upcoming weeks.

Thank you for all your support at home!

Family projects are due on Monday, December 7th!

Be on the lookout for more information about our Winter Party in your child’s OWL folder.


September Update

Dear Parents,

Your children are doing a wonderful job in Kindergarten. This week we will begin reading and math rotations.

Recently, we have been reciting Jack & Jill and the Itsy Bitsy Spider. We are working on pointing to each word and reciting these nursery rhymes.

We have also been learning color words. This past week, we read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?. Your child completed a sequencing headband where they put the pictures in order and colored them according to the book.

In math, we finished up our unit on shapes. We created shape people to review how many sides and corners each shape has. I put them in the hallway to show of  their hard work!

Looking forward to another week in Kindergarten,

Ms. Litton


Welcome 2015-2016 Students!

Dear parents,

Welcome to Kindergarten in Room E133. I am very excited to teach your children this year. We are off to a great start! We have enjoyed the past 8 days and we can’t wait for the rest of the year.

In math, we are learning positional words such as between, under, on top of, beside, etc. Ask your child about the Pete the Cat: Wheels On The Bus book we read and how we used Pete to help us learn those words!

This week, we have been learning the nursery rhyme, “Humpty Dumpty.” We are practicing pointing to each word as we recite the nursery rhyme. Ask your child to recite it for you at home.

In Social Studies, we have been learning school rules and how to be a good citizen. We read the books “No, David,” and “David Goes to School” to help teach us appropriate behavior at school. The students enjoyed sorting the good choices and bad choices that David makes in each book.

Please continue having your child practice writing their first and last name.

If you have any questions, please contact me at Llitton@ccps.us




March Update


Can you believe this school year is almost over?

March has been a fun month in our classroom. Spring is here and we have been embracing the nicer weather.

On March 13th, we had Donuts with Dad. Thank you to all the dads who were able to come and enjoy donuts with your child, in our classroom.

On March 24th, we went on our second field trip of the year. We went to the Children’s Museum of Richmond. The students learned about magnets and were able to explore the museum with their classmates.

Only one more week of school before Spring Break! (April 6-10th)

Have a great Sunday,

Ms. Litton
