Mrs. Garrity's Kindergarten News!

News for the week of February 16th, 2015


This week we will continue using our reading strategies like asking questions on parts of the story that are confusing or that we don't understand. We will jot these ideas down on sticky notes while we are reading and discuss the parts we had trouble with. This will help us better understand the story.


We will complete our pattern writing unit this week. We will spend most of the week reviewing what we have learned and then fixing our writing up for publication. We will then celebrate our writing with one another!


We will focus on counting forwards and backwards from 20 this week. Please help me practice my counting each night!

In Science, we will learn to distinguish between living and non-living things.

In Social Studies, we will learn the customs and symbols of Texas.
