Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
I hope everyone had a fabulous Fall Break! I definitely enjoyed the time I spent with my family. Now, we are ready to kick off the second quarter, probably the busiest time of the school year. Please keep practicing sight words daily with your child, as well as read together each night. Let your child read “with” you, filling in the sight and other known words when they can. This will help build confidence. I am looking forward to meeting with everyone this Friday at Parent/Teacher conferences. If you are unable to make your scheduled time, please let me know as soon as possible. Here’s what we are doing in the classroom this week.
MATH – This week we will identify and order numbers from 0-20, review pennies, count pennies, match number cards to sets of objects, and practice paying for items using pennies.
HANDWRITING – This week we will practice the letters H and T, review the numbers from 1-6 and practice the number 7.
SCIENCE/PUMPKINS – This week we will review the four seasons and list characteristics of each season, investigate how pumpkins grow and sequence pumpkin growth.
RELIGION – This week we will read and discuss Matthew 6:25-34. We will discuss how God cares for the whole world and gives us everything we need.
READING/LANGUAGE ARTS – This week we will recognize and reproduce rhyming words, blend initial phonemes to make words, attach the /h/ sound to the letter H and the /t/ sound to the letter T. We will decode 5 new sight words, review previous sight words, segment words into syllables, blend final phonemes to make words, locate the Table of Contents, set goals for reading, locate the title, author and illustrator, develop an understanding for new vocabulary words, use the comprehension strategies visualizing and predicting. We will also practice recognizing the difference between words and complete sentences.
THEME : HEALTH/FIRE SAFETY– We will begin to understand what “healthy living” means. We will also discuss fire safety rules and plans.
