Mrs. Erin Johnson - Kindergarten  (Send e-mail)

Welcome to Mrs. Johnsonís Kindergarten Class in the Gold Community at Grand Prairie!

We aIre going to have a fantastic school year and I am so thrilled to be a part of it!

Please check our class page often as it will be updated weekly.

Every student has a yellow "Take Home" folder that goes between home and school DAILY. Please check this special communication tool every night to see what we are up to each day and for all of our most important news and updates. Send any notes or papers back to us in this same yellow folder and your child will turn them in to the turn in tray. Take out and keep any other papers home.

Every child will have a yellow fluency reading bag that should go between home and school DAILY. We will use the leveled readers inside each day in class and it will be your child's HOMEWORK to read them at home each night. Also in the bag will be math games and activities to practice for homework. They will be switched out every couple of days. These do not need to come back. Library books can be brought home too, but have your child bring them back every day to use at class. Remember to return on the next library day!

1st quarter sight words:

Please remember to check my newsletter monthly for the focus "I can" statements. The "I can" statements will be on my webpage for each quarter.
"I can" statements were written in student friendly language to target specific learning skills from our common core state standards. Your child will link these statements to learning on a daily basis. When you visit the classroom, you will see them posted on our whiteboard.

Here are just a few of the Learning Targets for Quarter 1:
