Ms. M's Kinder GATE

Our Classroom News - November

A Note From Ms. M

We are working hard in Kinder. Students are really starting to grow when it comes to their phonics skills, including reading cvc words! Be sure to practice reading any of the paper book students bring home. We are excited to be finishing our pumpkin unit and incorporating some fun Thanksgiving crafts into the next few weeks.

Good to Know

Congratulations to Rocco for receiving our Citizenship award for October!

ELA (English Language Arts)

We are continuing to work on cvc words (sat, pin, cup, etc) and rhyming words. Students are working on reading nonsense words and orally segmenting words - tell them the word cat, they tell you the sounds /c/ /a/ /t/ - to get them ready for our next Dibels test coming at the end of the month.

Curriculum: Benchmark Advance

Additional Phonics Curriculum: ECRI

Sight Words: I, see, a, like, the, go, we, can, she, is, he, has,

Upcoming Sight Words: my, to, play, little, in it


Math - We are starting our unit on measurement and weight. We are also reviewing 3D Shapes.


We continue to work on our sentence writing. A good kinder sentence needs a capital letter at the beginning, finger spaces and punctuation at the end. If we come to a word we don’t know how to spell, we stretch the word and write the sounds that we hear.

Science and Social Studies

We are finishing up Pumpkin unit.
