Look What’s Happening In Kindergarten
The students are so proud of themselves, and I’m proud of them as well! They finished their book!!! It has been shipped to the publisher. They worked so hard writing and illustrating their story. I can’t wait to see the final product!
The acustical evening is quickly approaching. Each class has been asked to create a project to auction off that evening. We will be creating a fingerprint dove. The cost of this project is minimal. I will cover the paper and the paint cost. I am asking that each family donate $2 to help with the cost of the framing. Please have this to school by Friday January 24th. If this places a financial burden on any family please let me know and other arrangements will be made.
Here’s what’s going on in the classroom this week.
MATH – This week we will be creating ABC sound and movement patterns, paying for items up to 50 cents using nickels, dividing by sharing, and identifying and ordering numbers.
SOCIAL STUDIES/SCIENCE – This week we will continue learning about shadows in science. In Social Studies we will begin to understand that there are different kinds of jobs, that products are made by by human beings, nature, or machines. We will also talk about the difference between needs and wants.

We will also develop an understanding for new vocabulary words, review comprehension strategies, read 2 new selections about shadows, practice writing complete sentences using capital letters and end marks. DUE TO THE ASSESSMENT THIS FRIDAY, THERE ARE NO NEW SIGHT WORDS THIS WEEK . PLEASE REVIEW ALL WORDS UP TO THIS POINT.
