Alive and Well, Kindergarten Unit 7

In this health-based unit we've been reading a variety of fiction and nonfiction literature about our five senses. We will learn why we have bones and muscles. We will identify behaviors that keep us healthy such as active play and exercise, getting good sleep, good nutrition and using good hygiene practices.

Reading - As we read we will try using the 5 W's (who, what, when, where, why) to ask and answer questions for better understanding. We will work to identify the main idea.

Vocabulary Words - sense & opinion

Sight Words - friend, your, there & want

Writing - We are using sight words and phonetic spelling to write information about community helpers. We will also try using the words first, next and last in our narrative writing.

Phonics - The /th/, /sh/ & /ch/ sounds will be practiced. We are reading and writing consonant vowel consonant (cvc) words.

Math - Practice counting by ones, fives and tens. Keep using the hundreds chart in your child's FROG folder to help them practice counting and writing numbers to 100.

We are working on measuring and comparing objects by size in Math Topic 12.

Please login to your child's math account for more practice.
