There are some amazing courses offered here at C-F this summer!


I highly recommend the Stepping Into First Grade for all the current Kindergartners!!!

Reading and Writing

We have kept discussing strategies that the kids can use when they come up on some hard words and tricky parts in their books. They never give up because they have a bunch of different strategies to use to figure it out!


In writing, we are focusing on the mechanics of writing. (Finger spaces, using lowercase letters throughout, and punctuation)

Math

We took our test on sorting and they did a wonderful job!


On Wednesday, we started off the new chapter on Positional Words. We've discussed above, below, in front of, and behind so far.

Weather/Seasons

The classes told me everything they knew about weather - and they knew a lot! We talked about different tools that are related to weather - rain gauge, anemometer, and thermometers.


They also kept track of the weather each day with their "My Weather Chart". It's been a pretty windy and dreary week.


On Wednesday, they learned about the weather cycle and how it is continuous. They even made a wheel to help them remember that it keeps going on and on and on.
