Mrs. Maloney's Kindergarten News
Skills Learned This Week
This week learned what predictions are and practiced making predictions by reading fun books such as Zoomer and Miss Smith's Incredible Storybook. We made predictions before, during, and after reading. The students also learned that using detailed pictures in their drawings can help tell a story and provide clues for predicting.
This week the students learned how pick a "good fit book". They learned that the books they choose from our library must not be too hard or too easy, must be interesting, and must help us become better readers. They also got to pick new books for their boxes. We continued to build our stamina for Read to Self and we reached 7 and a half minutes!
This week the students learned about their five senses. They learned that without them we would not be able to enjoy the world as we do. They even got to explore popcorn using their senses and use words to describe each one.
This week we talked about jobs we do at home and at school. We compared them and talked about how our jobs help us be more helpful and responsible.
