Mini Monster Sighting!

November Newsletter 2014

Miss Schmidt's Kindergarten Class

We have been working so hard in Kindergarten! We wanted to share, with you, some of the activities that we completed and participated in for the month of November! Hope you enjoy!

New Writing Centers!

In November, we introduced new writing centers to our class! These centers have the students practicing their full name (first and last name), making lists, journal writing, and more! Every week, the students go to all three centers and are able to practice their skills at each center. We have some great writers in our class!


In December, we will be focusing on how to write a card. Be sure to keep look for our amazing writing pieces!

Measuring Machines

November was all about measuring! The students learned how to measure and compare objects with non-standard objects (cubes, coins, string,etc). We measured things such as our feet, pictures, and even our room! After measuring with non-standard objects, we then moved on to scales and weight.

Don't Eat the Turkey!

Since it was November, we talked about turkey! We read many books were the turkey had to hide and dressed himself up as different things. After reading, we decided to help the turkey out and tell people to eat different food! Each student made a turkey and then told people what they should eat instead. A popular idea was to eat pizza instead!
