This Week in Kindergarten

September 25, 2015

Thank you!

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Beck University and Johnny Appleseed Day. It is always so much fun to see all of the families, and we thank you for your continued partnership in your child's education. If you were unable to attend Beck University, the power point from the evening is on our websites.

What are we learning in Kindergarten this week?

Math: In math we are working with matching numbers on a five frame.

What can we work on at home?

-Identifying numbers 1-10


-Writing Numbers 1-10

Language Arts/ Social Studies: In language arts we will continue exploring and setting up our reader's and writer's workshops. In writing, students are learning how to turn an oral story into an illustration, and in reader's workshop students have learned how to "read to someone" and we are also working on choosing "just right" books to read.

What can we work on at home?

-Review letter names and sounds for: Ii, Ll, Tt, Oo, Aa, Cc, Dd, Ee

-Writing first name correctly on lined paper with only the first letter capitalized

-Correctly identifying and writing letters

Science: In science, we will continue to explore our five senses and how they relate to the world around us. We will be focusing this week on the sense of taste.
