While getting to know Golly, we learned the letter name, letter sound, and how to write the capital and lowercase letter Gg. It was a little difficult to write the lowercase letter g, but if we start it in the same spot as the c and o it helps. We should not lift our pencil to add a tail; just write the o then continue up to touch the vanilla (middle line) and drop straight down to add the tail. Golly told us about how he likes to follow his nose, but we did not agree with him about his favorite smell, GARBAGE! We noticed that there are many words that begin with the letter g, but we also learned that many words have the /g/ sound at the end of the word. There is a new book available to view on the Superkids website!
6th Grade Buddies
We met with our 6th Grade Buddies again on Thursday. This time the 6th grader interviewed the Kindergarteners about some of their favorite things, so we could get to know each other better!
In the Friday Folder, there was a form regarding access to iXL. This is a great online resource! There are many math skills students can practice at home. We have worked on Position Language and Counting 0-10, so I would recommend starting with the skills under those topics! Please let me know if you have an questions.
Our new Superkid is Alfalfa. We met him on Friday and learned that he loves adventures. He also can't stand ants! Yet, they continue to follow him around.
