May & June Highlights

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN KINDERGARTEN

Word Study

We will continue to explore letter blends and how they differ from digraphs. Fun activities will help us to recognize the various blend sounds.
We will also learn about "tricky e" at the end of a word, and how it makes a short vowel in the beginning of the word "say its name."

Reading Workshop

We will continue to challenge ourselves with new reading books to share with our families and use our Reading Superpowers to solve problems as we encounter new words. We will review our word families with activities that will help us add new words to our writing word vocabulary.

Writing Workshop

We continue with our "All about..." series of writing and move on to persuasive writing. Persuasive writing will include many activities such as book reports.

Math

We are focusing on representing the numbers up to twenty in tens and ones. We will move on to number bonds which help the children understand factors of a given number that leads into addition and subtraction.

We will finish the year introducing the concepts of time and money.

Social Studies

We will wrap up our map unit. As we complete our Kindergarten Family Generation Project we will share what we have learned from interviewing our grandparents.
