February Highlights

What's Happening in Kindergarten!

Reading Workshop

Our focus in February will be a nonfiction unit on the Inuit. We will be reading and researching as we identify the differences between fiction and nonfiction.

Writing Workshop

We will continue our nonfiction "How to" books. Along with the childrens' original ideas, we will be writing "How to" books that relate to different aspects of the Inuit culture.

Math

In math we will move on to addition and subtraction using number bonds. We will focus on numbers up to twenty.

Social Studies

We will continue the study of our telephone numbers and move on to our addresses. We will also be exploring maps.

February Notes...

* "Show and Share" will resume in March.
* If you choose to send Valentine's Day cards into school, please make sure to send one for each child. This avoids hurt feelings.
* Please continue to send in snow clothes for those snowy days when we are able to go outside (temperature permitting).
* Please make sure your child has an extra set of clothes that is appropriate for the season.
*We will be celebrating our 100th day of school in February.
*We will be talking about Chinese New Year.
