Week Twenty-Five: March 22 - March 26
Welcome back! We hope you had a wonderful and relaxing spring break with your families.
For ELA, we will introduce and focus on digraphs this week. Although digraphs have been discussed informally in class, we look forward to diving into the various digraphs in whole and small group work. There are quite a few activities to practice at home in the parent resources folder if you would like to have your child extend their learning.
In Math, we will work on creating numbers 5-10 using two different numbers (simple addition). Doing so will push your children to be creative in their mathematical thinking and use the subitizing skills that we have been working on solidifying this year.
During asynchronous learning times, we will encourage your child to practice previously introduced content using the resources below. We have included these for you as well if you would like to review these concepts with your child. If you have any questions, please let us know!
Last but not least, we want to reinforce our mantra of the power of play. Kindergarten is a time of great academic development. It is also a time when children form and solidify connections with their peers, develop social skills, and strengthen their ability to communicate their observations and thoughts. Play is an integral part of our day, as it nurtures social and emotional development. During this week at home, we encourage the balance of academic development with social and emotional development through play.
We use this in class! Your child is able to use the alphabet with visuals or one without for a challenge.
- Lined and/or plain paper
- Crayons or Colored Pencils
