What’s Happening In Kindergarten!
Everyone did a great job on their homework last week. I was impressed with the good handwriting! Keep it up!! Please remember to practice sight words daily. We will be reviewing them in the classroom as well. 5 new words will be sent home on Monday in the homework folder. Please keep these at home to practice. After every 15 words there will be a sight word assessment. Keeping on top of them is the key! Here’s what going on in the classroom this week.
MATH – This week we will sort by color, create a real graph, act out story problems, identify/review circles and triangles, and take oral assessment 2 – counting to 100.
SOCIAL STUDIES – This week we will compare the city to the country, create murals, identify the globe as a model of the Earth, distinguish between land and water on the globe, identify North and South Pole on the globe, and describe the physical characteristics of the Earth.
HANDWRITING – This week we will practice the letter M and continue to practice writing names with only one capital letter.
RELIGION – This week we will read the parable of The Lost Son. We will discuss how God loves us no matter what, even when we make bad choices.
READING/LANGUAGE ARTS – We will finish up our unit on Curious George. We will also classify and categorize, listen for first, middle, and last sounds, practice rhyming words, review previous sight words, decode 5 new sight words, read and respond to a pre-decodable, and play ABC bingo. We will also use the comprehension strategies asking questions, making connections, and clarifying. Our selection this week is Chrysanthemum.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!!!!!
