Kindergarten Keepsakes

Ms. Goodwin February 1st - 5th, 2016

READING & WRITING WORKSHOP

We are just about finished with our Eric Carle Author Study! The children worked so hard and produced a lot of great work that we'll be excited to share with you at Open House next month! Students completed their Middle of the Year Reading Response Assessment after hearing the Eric Carle story, 10 Little Rubber Ducks.

WE LEARNED ALL ABOUT GROUNDHOG'S DAY!

We made predictions about whether the groundhog would see his shadow or not and charted our classmates' responses. Then we watched as Phil came out on Groundhog's Day! An early Spring wasn't what most of our friends predicted! :)

SCIENCE

We completed our unit on rocks and have moved on to learning about water! You have probably heard your child singing the very catchy tune: "Water travels through a cycle, yes it does! Water travels through a cycle, yes it does! It goes up as evaporation, forms clouds as condensation, then comes down as precipitation, yes it does!"

FREE CHOICE FRIDAY

To celebrate all of their hard work, we had "Free Choice Friday" in the afternoon! Our friends could choose from Math stations, Phonics stations, Art stations, etc. and had a GREAT time! Shhhh . . . . they didn't even know they were still learning! :-)

SIGHT WORD PRACTICE

We practiced our sight words in stations and got to play Sight Word BINGO on Friday!
