Mrs. Noynaert's Kindergarten Class

Week of September 7, 2015

This Week in Room 508

We had another great week at school! I have already seen the kiddos grow so much in just a few short weeks, and I can't wait to watch them bloom throughout the year! It is truly a blessing to have them in my class this year!

Readers' Workshop: Last week we discussed what it means to "treasure" books: the difference between paper and hardback books, how to carry them, how to turn the pages, where to keep them, etc. This week we will continue discussing how books work and how we can use the illustrations to help us make meaning.

Writers' Workshop: We are continuing to learning the expectations of Writers' Workshop, and this week we will learn how to use specific tools to help us become better writers.

Math Stations: We worked on subtilizing (instantly recognizing a number of items in a small set without counting) numbers 1-3 this week. We also continued to explore the various math manipulatives we will be using throughout the year.

Science: We continued discovering what a scientist is and what they do.
