Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
Don’t forget there is no school on Monday for the students. The teachers will be meeting with other teachers from the diocese at Father Ryan High School for a day of professional development.
This Friday, September 27, is our 5th annaul Fun Run at SJV! It is a wonderful event that the students always love. The students do not have to wear their uniforms on Friday. Older students will be wearing their PE uniforms. Since we do not change into PE clothes yet, the students may wear any athletic shorts and tee shirts appropriate for school, along with their white PE shoes.
Here’s what going on in the classroom this week.
MATH – This week the students will be identifying ordinal positions, covering designs using pattern blocks, identifying triangles and squares, and identifying and sequencing numbers 0-10. The students will take oral assessment 3 on Friday.
READING/LANGUAGE ARTS – This week the students will segment syllables in words, learn the importance of letter order in words, attach the /p/ sound to the letter Pp and the /d/ sound to the letter Dd. We will decode 5 new sight words, review listening for first, middle, and last sounds, read and respond to a pre-decodable. We will locate the table of contents, title, author, and illustrator, develop an understanding for new vocabulary words, review the comprehension strategies Clarifying and Predicting as well as use the comprehension skill Compare and Contrast.
HANDWRITING – This week we will practice the letters L and U and the numbers 1-5.
