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-Week of 12/3

Thank you all for sharing your children with me this year! I hope you find this page helpful. You will find what we are working on in class along with important dates and reminders for the month ahead.

Word Work: 

All sight words for the 2nd 9 weeks have been taught.  

The words below are the sight words that students should be able to identify in a “snap” for the 2nd 9 Weeks.They are the red words on the sight word list in your child's daily folder. 

it  here  said  go  in  for  can  no  are  of  an  that

For the 2nd nine weeks report cards, students will have to orally generate rhyming words. Please continue to practice rhyming at home as we practice daily at school. Rhyming can be a very hard skill for some students and it just takes a lot of practice. Also work on identifying syllables in words and working on onsets and rimes. (t-ub, tub, h-op, hop)  

Reading:

We are continuing our fairy tale unit. Students will practice sequencing/retelling fairy tales with a partner while continuing to identify fairy tale elements. We will also be comparing and contrasting different versions of the same fairy tale.     

Writing: 

Students will continue writing personal narrative spelling word wall words correctly, using appropriate spacing, use capitals and the beginning of a sentence and punctuation marks at the end and stretching words. 

*For the 2nd 9 weeks report card, students are expected to be able to write a story across pages not just dictate a story. Words do not need to be spelled correctly but students should be starting to get the beginning and ending sounds down as their "words" and should be beginning to attempt a sentence on each page describing the pictures in their story in sequence. Letter strings by the end of the second 9 weeks will receive a score of a 1, meaning the student is working to understand a certain skill. 

Here is a copy of the 2nd 9 week's writing rubric:

Science/SS:

We will complete different activities and experiments with gingerbread men this week.

12/20- Holiday Party 2:40-3:25

*If you are interested in being a Mystery Reader, please email me for available times. Remember, you must be an approved TISD volunteer. You will have to go through a background check so please do this ASAP if interested in reading to the class.

*If you would like your child to have his/her own headphones in the classroom, please send them in a Ziploc bag labeled with their name.

This is not a requirement. Headphones are provided. 

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.
