Whats Happening In Kindergarten

Reader's Workshop

In Reader's Workshop we are working on telling a story by looking at the pictures. We have been sharing our story with our learning partner. Our Learning partner is a classmate that your child will meet with to share their learning. When we are with our learning partners we are learning how to be a speaker and a listener. As readers we are now shopping for books we find interesting and quietly reading these books. Our reading stamina for the class is up to 12 minutes.

Writer's Workshop

In Writer's Workshop we have been working on Thinking of a story about something we know and can do. We are picturing the story in our head and saying it to ourselves. This week we started sharing our stories with our learning partner and then sketching the story. We are very excited to have our own Writer's Notebook to put our work in.

Math workshop

We are working on identifying and decomposing numbers. We are discussing how we use numbers in our world. We have been working on counting objects 1 to 1. We have had fun being number detectives by counting objects and looking for numbers in our environment.


We go out for recess everyday before lunch. The only time we do not go outside is if it is raining or the wind chill is below zero. It must be raining or below zero at recess time. The cold weather season has begun. Please make sure your child has a warm jacket, hat and gloves to wear for recess.

Leader In Me

We are so excited to be a Leader In Me school. On Wednesday Nov. 18th we are having a parent night. This is a great way to find out what Leader In Me is all about. If you are available please try to attend our Parent Night. It is from 6:30- 7:15 pm. If you need more information do not hesitate to contact me or call the office.

In kindergarten we have been working on Habit 2 : Begin with the End in Mind.
