Beach Buddies' Bulletin
April 4-8, 2015
This week we started writing nonfiction "reports". We worked on adding a MAIN idea sentence followed by 2 details. Pretty impressive for kindergartners! Ask your child what he/she is writing about.
In writers' workshop we have read a series of books with the characters Bubba and Beau (a baby and dog). We found that strong readers INFER to figure out new vocabulary words.
In math we have counted by 2's, told time to the hour, found the missing number in a series of 3 numbers, and made symmetrical t-shirts.

Instead of our regular blog post this week, I have a link to our new class Seesaw blog. Maybe you of you have signed up for updates on your child's Seesaw iPad app. I have heard from many that you enjoy seeing the learning happening in school through the Seesaw updates. It is simple to use and only informs you when YOUR child publishes something. It is a great way to stay connected. If you have not signed up and would like to, let me know! Each child/parent has as special log in -- I will send the info your way soon if you need it resent.
This week we started our class Seesaw BLOG. When you sign up for Seesaw you only see YOUR child's work. On the new blog, we choose work to share with the WORLD so you will see items from the whole class! Each kindergartner selected one piece of work to "publish". Check out some of our new learning. Many are videos so if you see a play button- press it!
