Mrs. Toering's Kinder News
Oak Grove...where learning grows and shows!
What did we learn this week?
We are learning lots of math skills during calendar: counting with tally marks, building numbers using tens frames; following patterns; counting using ordinal numbers; interpreting bar graphs; making predictions; understanding the calendar; and more! Our time on the rug discussing calendar and other related concepts is FULL of math (and reading) skills!
The class has LOVED learning about the 5 senses! I think they especially liked playing a touch and feel guessing game with partners (see pictures below). When describing "How does it feel?", the students practiced using descriptive words (adjectives). You will have to ask your child about this game.
Fun with the sense of touch!

The class had a lot of fun with the Touch and Feel Guessing Game! This was the first time the students practiced working cooperatively in pairs. We will continue to practice this skill throughout the year.
The students practiced identifying letters in various types of media such as newspapers and magazines. They learned that some fonts can make letters look different.
More practice with letters and letter sounds. Practice makes perfect!
Mr. Potato Head's Five Senses
The students LOVED this center...building Mr. Potato Head while learning all about the Five Senses. Learning through play is always fun!
