This week was a busy week of learning.

In ELA, we learned about where animals live. Our letters of the week were v and w. Our sight words were said and want. We also completed our Unit 7 assessment. Please continue to work with your child at home with their sight words.

In Math, we worked on composing and decomposing numbers.

In Science, we started our unit on habitats and learned about the Arctic Tundra. We created an arctic tundra habitat with the entire kindergarten. Check out pictures of what we created. The kids loved learning about the arctic.

A peek at our learning this week....

This week our class will be reading stories about the transportation used to take people from place to place. Children will learn about how families in the past traveled and how these vehicles compare with what is used today.

Here are some activities that you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we will be practicing.

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: transportation, vehicle Discuss the different kinds of transportation you take from place to place. Then invite your child to draw pictures of each type of transportation.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: here, me Write the words here and me and ask your child to write each word. Think of sentences that use each word, then read the sentences together.

Category Words: vehicles Play “Guess the Vehicle.” Give rhyming clues about different kinds of vehicles. Encourage your child to guess the vehicle, and then act out how it is used.

Phonics: j, qu Have your child guess words that begin with the letter j. Give a clue and act out each word. When your child guesses the word, write the word on a chart. Repeat for qu.

In Math, we will continue using number bonds to decompose and compose numbers.

In Science, we will continue with our habitat unit and work on the desert.
