Mrs. Tax's Kindergarten Class
Week of September 27, 2015
Our trip to Sky Top Apple Orchard
Kindergarten Homework Has Started!
What We Are Learning
We will continue to work on recognizing and producing rhymes. Practice at home together coming up with words that rhyme. Nonsense words count, too! We will begin learning sight words during Daily 5. These are words that occur frequently in books. Sight words will also go home to be practiced as homework. Please read them nightly together.
We will be working on counting activities in math all this week. We will also practice writing numbers 1-5. Look for number writing practice homework sometime this week. For fun, ask your child what subitizing is-they just might teach you something!
We will be studying community helpers as part of our social studies focus. The Asheville Fire Department will visit kindergarten this week with their smokehouse. They will teach the students what to do in case of a fire.
Fundations is our phonics program. We are in Unit 1, learning the name and sound of all the letters of the alphabet. Each week, we add two letters, and spend time learning how to write the letters as well.
