Mrs. Smit's Kindergarten News

What happened at school this week?

Want to get your kiddo talking about what they are doing here at school? Here are a couple questions/subjects to help guide the discussion:

* Show me some of the ways you can do subtraction.

* What do you know about bunnies?

* Tell me a Gingerbread story.

December 18th- Classroom Holiday Parties

December 19th- Winter Vacation Begins

This week:

Our language arts focus this week was rhyming words. We read several versions of the Gingerbread story and found rhyming words in the stories. We are comparing and contrasting the different stories. As you are reading to your children each night please encourage your kiddos to pick out rhyming words in the stories you read and to make connections to similar stories.

The sight words for next week are: black & white

This week your mathematicians had so much fun learning and practicing subtractions. We will learn new games next week. There are lots of real world ways we can practice our subtraction skills at home, please look for opportunities to do that with your little learner. (Example- I had 5 peas on my plate, I ate 3 how many do I have left?)

It has been a great week, thank you for sharing your children with me!

Discovery Scoop

Hello wonderful parents! This is Mrs. Foust with our news from Discovery. This week we began a new unit, Healthy Foods and Exercise. We read the book, Berenstain Bears and Too Much Junk Food and then discussed good food choices. Students also had fun using the scooterboards for exercise this week! For Social Skills, we discussed the importance of calming down when we are upset and making good choices.

We met our school bunnies!
