Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Welcome to kindergarten! I feel so blessed to be a part of Wildwood’s family and am looking forward to an exciting 2018-2019 school year!

I grew up in Cypress and attended Cy-Fair I.S.D. from K-12th grade. I then attended the University of Oklahoma where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education. My first six years of teaching were in C.F.I.S.D. In 2015, I earned a Master’s Degree in Counseling from the University of St. Thomas. My husband and I married in July of 2015 and built our home in Tomball which brought me to Tomball I.S.D.

This year will be full of fun and learning! You will see your child grow in many ways. I can't wait to be a part of that experience. Teaching kindergarten is truly the best!

My hope is for your child to feel safe, secure and loved in my classroom. I strongly believe, “it takes a village,” and together, we work as a team to educate our children. I will always be available for any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. Thank you in advance for placing your trust in me.   

It’s going to be a great school year!

Mrs. Heinrich

Weekly Update (May 14)

Thank you all for sharing your children with me this year and helping to make Teacher Appreciation Week so great for me! You all deserve appreciation as well! Thank you for all you do! You are raising THE BEST!

Word Work: 

We are continuing to review and practice blending phonemes, decoding (sounding out) simple words, segmenting words into sounds, and rhyming. We are also manipulating phonemes by deleting the initial sound, creating new words by changing the initial sound, segmenting compound words, and decoding more difficult words.

Here are the sight words that we should be able to identify in a “snap” for the 4th Nine Weeks (in addition to the first 36 from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd nine weeks):

or  come  do  have  all  out  be  saw  from  went  this  her

We have now learned all sight words for the kindergarten school year. I will start to teach first grade sight words but of course, student will not be expected to know any of those this year for the final report card.

Reading:

We will review all reading strategies we have learned this year and continue to apply them.

Writing: 

We will continue learning about persuasive writing/the last genre of writing for the year. They will use their opinion to influence or persuade others that their choice is best. This should also be a fun unit. We will study different types of texts (signs, ads, posters, commercials, menus, letters, reviews, greeting cards, lists) and attempt to write them.  

Math:

We will continue measurement along with reviewing addition and subtraction. On report cards, students will need to be able to give an example of a measurable attribute of a given object, including length, capacity, and weight.We will compare the length of different objects to see which is longer, shorter, or the same length. We will use pattern blocks to measure different classroom objects as well. 

Please continue to practice addition and subtraction with your student at home.

Science/SS:

The students will  learn about different environments (oceans) and how plants and animals have parts that help them to live in each environment.

Reminders:

We are in the home stretch. Please continue to practice reading nightly. 

May 14: Remember all books in purple folders are due Monday, May 14. Thank you so much for reading with your children at home and keeping up with all the books. I know it can be a lot with books, daily folders, Wednesday folders etc... You all ROCK!

Field Day

Parents, 

 

I wanted to send a few reminders about Field Day this Thursday, March 8. I realized I had Friday, March 9 written on my teacher page! I'm so sorry. I hadn't changed it since we received news that there would be two days for field day due to our size. Just to clarify, all of Kindergarten is on Thursday.  

 

-Field Day is Thursday from 9:00 to 11:40.

 

-Parents are welcome to attend. If you have checked in to the front desk before Thursday with your ID and you have returned the orange form, then you will go to the quick sign in table to get your pre-printed badge. If you have not been scanned in before and you are attending, I recommend coming early since there may be a long line to get scanned in and have your badge printed.

 

-Everyone must bring a photo ID to check in.

 

-Please have your child wear the lime green field trip shirt they received for the field trip. If you cannot find it, or never received one (new students), don't panic. You may wear any green shirt. If your child doesn't have a green shirt at all, still don't panic. Any color will do. :) 

 

-Please dress your child in appropriate tennis shoes and exercise clothing.

 

-Please send a full water bottle with their name on it. I would suggest sending a disposable water bottle for field day with their name, just in case it gets misplaced.

 

-If you would like your child to have sunscreen or bug repellent on, please put this on them before sending them to school. If they need to reapply it, please send the sunscreen to school in their backpack with their name on it as well. 

 

-If you would like to take your child home early after field day, please sign them out on the paper I will have and use your paper ticket to exit the building just like on party days.

 

Parents will not be able to stay to attend lunch. We will not be using the cafeteria so we will all eat in the pods.

 

If there are any more questions please feel free to email me. I hope there hasn't been any confusion so far. This is my first year to do Field Day at this school so I am learning with you.
