Kindergarten News

Monday-It is hard to believe we are starting the fourth nine weeks assessing! We began the PALS reading assessment and will continue throughout the next few weeks. Students also participated in a "Maker Monday" project. They were asked to plan and design a living or a non-living thing. They absolutely loved it and were so proud of their designs. They are really excited about next Monday!

Tuesday-In writing, we began learning about poems. Students listened and even acted out poems. Then, they created their own writing. I am so impressed with their handwriting and the ability to spell words. We also continued to learn about time. We did an activity where students had to distinguish between a minute, second, or hour.

Wednesday- During our literacy rotations, students had a chance to practice their sentence writing. They chose words and then created sentences. Students also had to use correct punctation with capital letters and endings to sentences. The favorite ending is an exclamation mark!

Thursday- Today we continued our PALS testing. We are almost finished! We also decorated one of the main props for our Kindergarten/First Grade Musical Performance. The students really enjoyed it. We also visited the Wonder Lounge to practice our math and spelling.

Friday-Happy Friday! We read our non-fiction Let's Find Out about Fun in the Sun. We also reviewed math words fewest, equal, and most on our Let's Find Out. In writing, we practice making nouns plural. It was a little tricky when words needed 'es' and 'ies'. The students did a great job!
