Highlights From Last Week....

Our first week of kindergarten was great! We have already learned a lot! Our main focus was to learn how to behave like a kindergartener, but we also learned how to read by looking at the pictures in the book! In Math, we learned about hidden numbers and the numbers 0,1,2, and 3! We started stations in both Math and Literacy. They look much different with our social distancing, but we are making work! The teachers are rotating instead of the children. We are also using more technology! We learned the letter m, the sight word the, and how be a good friend. We are sure your children were exhausted when they got home, we know we were!

A peek at our learning this week...

This week will be an action packed week of learning!


This week our class will be reading stories about baby animals and their families. Your child will also discover ways in which baby animals move, such as hopping, running, galloping, and crawling.

Here are some activities you can do with your child to help reinforce the skills we’ll be practicing.

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: adventure, movement Have your child move like a bunny rabbit. Encourage your child to tell about an adventure he or she would have as a bunny.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Word: we With your finger, write the word we on your child’s back, then have him or her write we on your back. Write sentences using the word we and have your child underline it.

Category Words: family words Encourage your child to draw a picture of a family. Have him or her identify each member of the family. Then invite him or her to draw a favorite baby animal and its family.

Phonics: a Look for words in a book that begin with or have the letter a in them. Encourage your child to point to letter a and say: I see a! Then help your child sound out each word.

Comprehension: key details

Read a story about a pride, or family, of lions. Then have your child tell details about what each lion likes to do.


In Math, we will work on decomposing numbers with totals of 4 and 5. We will write numerals 1-5 in order. We will be working with numbers 6-8. We will learn how to write the numbers and use the numeral to represent a quantity.

THANK YOU!

We would like to send out a HUGE thank you to all of the parents that sent in supplies. It is a huge help to us and is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Masks

Your children have been wearing their masks during mask time! They are SO awesome. Please be sure to send in an extra mask to keep at school. We have disposable ones, but they are really big on them and not too comfortable.
