March 23rd - 27th and March 30th - April 2nd
This Week in Kindergarten
For reading we are wrapping up the letter Jj, and will start Unit 10, which focuses on Xx and Yy. We are also working on writing a paper before the end of the school year. Yes, that's right, A PAPER. Mrs. Meinel has three authors in her class this year, is case you didn't know! We will probably finish up with the Superkids' Club series in mid-late April, leaving us a few weeks to focus on other things. Our writing will be one of those things, and the kids are off to a terrific start already!
For math these next few weeks we will learn about counting by 2s, identifying even and odd numbers, measuring distances, practice more number stories, and identifying and making symmetrical designs.
Our themes for these next few weeks will be Weather, Picnics, Easter, and the Veterinarian/Veterinary Clinic. This week Friday we will be having our own picnic. I am asking for families to send in a favorite picnic item. I will supply the juice boxes if you all can send in just a small amount of one of your child's favorite foods for our picnic - it can be fruit, veggies, cheese and crackers, or anything similar! Please email me if you are able to send in something small for this event. Thanks in advance! :) Also, if someone has an old blanket we could borrow that day, it would be greatly appreciated, just let me know!
For the following week (Holy Week) we only have four days of school. We will have a few mini-units. We are in need of some "pets" to visit our classroom "Vet Clinic". Please have your child bring in a stuffed animal or two that we can pretend with for the week of March 30th. I know I'm asking a lot, but these are the types of experiences that students learn the most from! Thanks again for being awesome parents! :)
Easter Break begins on Good Friday, April 3rd. Classes resume on Monday, April 13th.
Love and Blessings,
