KINDERGARTEN CURRICULUM

Math-

For math this week we expanded our understanding of numbers from 6 to 10. We learned how to properly write them, put them in a 10 frame and to order them. We also did a fun art project based on the book 10 Black Dots. Be sure to see this creative work in your child's classroom or in Mrs. Agundez's outdoor display case.

Religion-
During religion this week we read the story of Noah's Ark. We also learned about Pope Francis' visit to America and attended our first Mass at MJS.

Guidance-
Guidance continues to focus on our emotions. The emotion "anger" was discussed and children were given techniques to help them deal with it.


Language Arts-
The children have gotten a chance to know Golly, the dog who lives in a gas station and loves to sniff. We will introduce a new SUPERKIDS character this week. We have also been working on rhyming and ending sounds in class.

K-PALS PROGRAM

Mayfield Junior School has a wonderful program known as K-Pals, that pairs up a Kindergarten student with a sixth grader for some weekly reading time. The sixth graders will visit kindergarten on most Friday afternoons and will spend time with their kindergarten partner, reading a book and finding out about kindergarten. The sixth graders will share their love of reading with the kindergartners by bringing books to read each time both groups meet. We will have our second K-Pals session this Friday with the sixth graders!

Field Trip - Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Patch

Our first class field trip is to Cal Poly Pomona Pumpkin Patch on Wednesday, October 14th.

All parent volunteers need to be at school by 8:30 a.m and please meet in Mrs. Agundez's classroom for instructions and driving directions. If you are driving for this field trip, please make sure you have a copy of your driver's license and car insurance on file at the front desk.
