In Kindergarten this month, your children will be learning about eating healthy, the gingerbread man, and different holidays around the world. These themes will be integrated into our reading activities as well as content. Also in reading we will continue to work on a different letter each week. We will practice syllables, breaking apart sounds within words, comprehension, as well as practice handwriting. We will continue to practice and learn sight words, sounding out words, and writing sentences. The students’ writing skills are improving each week and we will continue to work on this skill each Friday and in our reading groups. This month the students will be learning about book reviews and writing their own. In Math, we will be working on addition strategies, counting and writing numbers to 20, positional words, and comparing numbers.
