Writer's Workshop

This week, we shared out Book Reviews with Mrs. Hamers and Ms. Olson's 5th Grade class! We also started our next unit of study: Small Moments! A Small Moment is a story that zooms in on one tiny moment. For instance, a student would write about going on a ride at Disney World, rather than the whole trip to Disney.

Reader's Workshop

The kindergarteners continued to read their just right books and look books during readers workshop. Kindergarteners read fluently with reading partners by automatically recognizing and reading sight words that they should be able to “read in a snap.”

Fundations

We have been learning to tap out CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words such as dog, lip, cup, hat, jug, fix, cat, and lot. Encourage your child to take out their words if it's a CVC words.


We have also been reviewing our uppercase letter formation. Since the beginning of January, we have practiced A-T.

Winter Weather Reminder

Thank you for sending the kiddos into school with warm jackets, gloves, hats and scarves. It's getting chilly out there and they need it during outdoor recess. Just a reminder to practice having them zip themselves up when they put their jacket on. Right around this age is when they should be able to do it independently!
