Writers Workshop

We are finished with our first draft letter books and will be working on opinion writing next week. We all know Kindergartners have opinions so it should be fun to see what they come up with. :)

K.W.2 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose informative/explanatory texts in which they name what they are writing about and supply some information about the topic.

K.W.1 Use a combination of drawing, dictating, and writing to compose opinion pieces in which they tell a reader the topic of the name of the book they are writing about and state an opinion or preference about the topic or book

Reading Workshop

This week we continued to read Froggy books to show our characters can have different adventures by the same author. On Wednesday we created a venn diagram comparing two Froggy books. We also started to review Cause and Effect during our reading time. We were busy finding relationships in our own books, too!

K.RL.9 With prompting and support, compare and contrast the adventures and experiences of characters in familiar stories.

K.RL.1 With prompting and support, ask and answer questions about key details in a text

K.RL.7 With prompting and support, describe the relationship between illustrations and the story in which they appear


During our message each morning, we wrote words with the inflections and affixes below and tried to understand their meaning. We also used them in a sentence in our morning work packet.

K.L.4b Use the most frequently occurring inflections and affixes (e.g., -ed, -s, re-, un-, pre-, -ful, -less) as a clue to the meaning of an unknown word

Math Workshop

We have grasp on subtracting and taking a part of the whole number away. Please continue to work on this skill at home. The students took the test on Friday and we will start 3D shapes next week.

Understand addition as putting together and adding to, and understanding subtraction as taking apart and taking from.
K.OA.1 Represent using objects, fingers, mental images, drawings, sounds, acting out situations, verbal explanations, expressions, or equations

K.OA.5 Fluently add and subtract within 5

3D shapes museum

I thought I would save some trees and just put the shapes museum note here!

Please have your child bring in ONE example of the following 3D shapes on

Thursday, March 14th

cube, cone, sphere, cylinder, and rectangular prism


We created a green forest this week with our friends! We learned about the different layers of the forest, chose the layer we wanted to create with a group, made a materials list, and got started making together. See pictures below. On Friday we made masks and animals from the forest and next week we will be sharing out our habitat.

K.3.1 Observe and draw physical features of common plants and animals

K.3.3 Describe and compare living plants in terms of growth, parts, shape, size, color, and texture
