Relay for Life Coins for a Cure
We will be raising money for our school's Relay For Life Team! Relay for Life is an organization that raises money for the American Cancer Society.
Each day next week, please help us raise funds by bringing in a penny and a nickel on Tuesday, a dime on Wednesday, a quarter on Thursday, and a dollar on Friday!
Dr. Seuss Week...Coming Soon!
What's coming up next week:
Next week in reading, students will continue comparing and contrasting characters and experiences with prompting and support. Students will be assessed on Friday. You can help your child at home by talking to them about books they have read and how the characters and experiences are like other characters and experiences they have read about. Your child's performance on the skill will appear on your child's report card and GKIDS state assessment!
In writing, we will conclude our study of opinion writing. Students will be assessed and asked to write their opinion of a given topic and be able to support their opinion with one or more reasons. I will be looking for clear ideas and organization, spacing between words, grade appropriate language and spelling, and grade appropriate use of conventions.
In math, students will continue to identify, extend and create patterns. Students must be able to identify and label the type of pattern they extend and create. Students are encouraged to practice this skill at home with random objects such as buttons, colored paper clips, colored bottle caps, etc.
In social studies we will conclude our study of Abraham Lincoln, George Washington and President's Day. It is important that students be able to identify their current president as well. Students must be able to identify pictures of George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, the Lincoln Memorial, Washington Memorial , American Flag, and eagle. Students must also be able to tell about the purpose of President's Day. An appropriate kindergarten response is "to honor and remember all the presidents of the United States."
