Starting The Year Off Right! Ins & Outs of Kindergarten

We began our year in Kindergarten learning all about what it is like to be a Kindergartener. We explored our new classrooms, met our teachers and new friends, and had a blast on the playground. We also got to eat in the cafeteria, had fun in gym, and started ST Math on the computers in Mr. Frezza's class. We can't wait for all the new things we will learn this year in Kindergarten!

What We Are Learning This Month

Writing Workshop

October kicks off with the beginning of Teacher's College Writing Workshop. Students will learn how to create a small moment story from their experiences, and writing down the whole story on paper by drawing and writing. Students will begin to using what they know about letters and sounds to share stories to family and friends. Students will use their experiences and pictures to help retell a special moment. Students will share their writing with their teachers and classmates, and finally end with a celebratory publishing party at the end of the month!

Reading Workshop

Our Kindergarten classes are continuing to work on launching our reading workshop. Learning about good readers’ habits and routines. We know that good readers have many ways to read and think about books before we are even reading all the words in them. During this month we will also work on story elements: identifying characters, setting and major events.

During Word Study we are working with letter recognition, sounds, and writing upper and lower case letters. We are also working on the following high frequency words: I, me, am, the, at, go, to, like, we, can, my, is, and, he, look, see, come, get, up, mom, dad.


The kindergarten students are continuing the important work of daily routines. They have developed counting skills, and familiarity with the numbers 0-5 and how to represent count and compare numbers.

Social Studies & Science

In Social Studies our focus is School and the School Community. We will be introducing students to the concept of what it means to be a good citizen within a school community. We will do this by talking about rules, jobs, and responsibilities and why they are important.

Our unit of study for Science this month is “Trees throughout the Seasons”. We will be exploring and observing evidence of Autumn/Fall changes and transition in to the properties and needs of living things, animals versus plants.

Happy Birthday!
