Mrs. Hunecke's Happenings

September 8th-11th

I hope everyone had an enjoyable three-day weekend! I can't believe we are starting week three in kindergarten! Your children are doing a great job. If you get a chance, ask your child what "whole body listening" is. Mrs. Payne and I have been working together to teach the students how to be Superstar Listeners!

Skills at a Glance

-This week's sight words: the, is

-Last week's sight words: am, little, I

-Jolly Phonics: h, r, m

-Reading: We will continue to learn about good reading habits and building stamina. We are also busy learning about Concepts of Print (letters, words, spaces, etc...). We will introduce the "word work" center this week. This center focuses on word activities that help to reinforce sight word recognition as well as other "word" skills.

-Writing: Students have the opportunity to produce a piece of writing several times a week. Students are at various stages in their writing, (see curriculum night handout) and will work on generating ideas this week. If you have any questions about your child's writing stage, feel free to contact me!

-Math: Counting and Cardinality

-Social Studies: School Rules and Our Kindergarten Family

LMC book check-out is every WEDNESDAY. Students can bring their book back on any day, but if they would like to check out a new one, it must be returned by Wednesday. Thanks!
