What We Are Learning This Month
During the month of January students will continue to use various reading strategies (stretching out words, checking to see if the sentences make sense, etc.) to help them read in their “just right” books. Our Kindergarten classes will start reading fictional text. We will be discussing story elements, characters, setting, problem, plot and solution.
During Word Study we are working with letter recognition, sounds, and writing upper and lower case letters. We are also working on the following high frequency words: up, from, as, girl, boy, play, jump,, man, eat, day, did, ran, put, us, this, or, now, sit, then, yes, will, how, no, his.
The kindergarten students are continuing the important work of daily routines. They have developed counting skills, and familiarity with the numbers 0-10 and how to represent count and compare numbers. During the month of January, we will focus on Adding one digit numbers between numbers 0-9. Students will continue to play games, and learning all the different ways they can add different numbers and the relationships between them!
