# Kinder Review

## Literacy Corner

This week we reviewed all Letterlanders taught in class, as well as introduced the Letterlanders Quarrelsome Queen (Qq) and Red Robot (Rr). As we learned about the letter Q, we learned that you will never see Quarrelsome Queen without her umbrella to shield her from the elements. This means, whenever you see the letter Q, you will always see it with the letter u. We also introduced the students to the word wall words, "you" and "are". To conclude our thematic unit on winter we learned more factual information about snow and conducted research on bears. We will continue to work on research projects for the rest of the year. The students did a great job on this activity!!! We also worked on our writing skills. The students generated some great sentences related to the research project. Please continue to work on reading and writing skills at home.

Next week we will learn more Letterlanders and word wall words. We will learn about the groundhog and continue to work on our reading and writing skills.

## Math Lab

This week in math we continued to work on our counting skills. The students are doing a great job counting to 100, however, we can never have enough counting to 100. We also worked on identifying numbers that are greater than, less than and equal to. We also worked on our sorting skills and addition fact fluency to 5. While talking about addition, we also went more in-depth with word problems. Word problems can be a little confusing for students. Please continue to work on these skills with your child at home.

Next week we will continue to work on math facts to 5, while working on math facts to 10. We will also continue working on shapes (flat and 3D) and word problems.

## Parental FYI and Reminders

If you have not already done so, please send in any pictures taken during our snow days. The students really enjoy seeing what we all did during that time.

Please continue to review the expectations at home with your child. We will also continue to work on them at school.
