    September


    Kindergarten Art

    Students will continue to learn about cool and warm colors through our upcoming artist study: Georgia O'Keeffe. O'Keefe spent the later part of her years in the southwest US painting flowers, mountains and the sky. CCA students will be creating their own flower based on her techniques and this project will be part of our art fund raiser with Original Artworks.

    Kindergarten Music 

    This month's focus is on sounds.  Students will be learning different instrument timbres and be able to identify many of the percussion instruments used in the orchestra. Please refer to SCHOOLOGY for our weekly list of activities.

    Kindergarten PE

    We will be learning about skipping and galluping. We will continue using movement, especially hopping (one foot) and jumping (two feet), and will master these two movements in relationship to different directions. Please make sure your child wears shoes appropriate for activity (non-slip soles).  

    Welcome to September!  I look forward to a great month of learning!
