Keeping Up With Kindergarten

Mrs. Enright's Class

December 11, 2015

We have been very busy the past two weeks of school! Being our only two full weeks between breaks, we worked hard to accomplish a lot before some of the (fun and exciting!) distractions that the holiday season brings start coming our way :)

Our class was so very excited to have a new student after Thanksgiving break! Cole comes to us from Central School and has been a perfect addition to this wonderful group of students. Welcome to Lizzy Haddon Spence family!

What's Happening in the Classroom?

Literacy: Over the past two weeks we continued our Wilson curriculum with focus on the letters v, w, x, y, z, and q. Now that we have completed our study of the entire alphabet, we will be moving into sounding out CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) pattern words.

Math: We continued measurement and started working with money over the past two weeks. We've discussed how much a penny is worth and have practiced counting pennies up to 50! We will be moving on to nickels and dimes so start emptying those piggy banks for some practice at home :)

Social Studies: We have really enjoyed continuing our family study by focusing on family traditions over the past two weeks. We've read stories about what traditions are and shared about our own traditions with our families at home. The students completed this study by choosing their favorite family tradition and writing about and illustrating these special memories.
