Mrs. Birkland's Kindergarten Class
Take a look at our week: Oct 10-14
This week’s letters were Dd , Digging Dog and Cc, Kk, _ck, Kick the Can. Ask your child the sign for Dd and the Cc and Kk sound. With Dd we drew a picture of a dog following step by step directions. With the /k/ sound we did a sort of words that began with /k/ and words that did not. We also searched for our letters in poems. We read “Hey Diddle, Diddle” "When Cows Play Tag" and "K is for Kettle." Make sure to read these poems at home as they come home in your child’s daily folder. During this time we also worked on our kindergarten high frequency words. We reviewed them by reading the chart We Are.

Don't Forget! October Goal
The best part of this week and last was our chapter books we are reading together as a class. I read to them during short times of the day. Our first book we loved was called Genius the Amazing Guinea Pig. Ask your child to tell you a little bit abut Genius and his owner Judy. Today we started another book called Toys Go Out. In this book we have 3 fun characters-Lumpy, the buffalo, Sting Ray, and Plastic. Chapter 1 was about the toys finding them selves in a dark backpack. Ask them to tell you what happened in there and where they ended up going in the backpack. These books have limited pictures, maybe 1 every 4-5 pages. So, they close their eyes and they make a movie in their mind to see what is going on. We latch on to words from the author to help us see and feel what is going on. In these types of stories, we stop and talk a lot about what is going on to make sure we are understanding. It is my favorite time of day!
