Kindergarten Kingdom News...

Mrs. Johnson's and Mrs. Lawlor's Kindergarten Class

We are learning...

Language Arts/Reading: We are learning about the alphabet. We know there are two kinds of letters- consonants and vowels. Ask your student to name the five vowels! We practice our reading skills in the classroom daily. Last week, we learned how to use "whisper phones" to read to ourselves. The "whisper phones" make it easier to hear ourselves read. Everyone agreed...they are so cool!

Math: We are counting, writing, and representing numbers 0-20. We are learning about graphs. We made a graph to show our favorite community helper this week! Ask your student to tell you what he/she learned about graphs!

Science/Social Studies: We finally made it to the cafeteria for our tour and baking! IT WAS AWESOME! Now we know what is behind the line where we pick up our food. A huge thank you to our cafeteria manager-Ms. Heather- for hosting this special tour! Our "Job Share" day went very well today. Our parents have so many interesting jobs. When we grow up...we want to be just like YOU!

Things to remember...
