Week of October 20-24

Kindergarten Highlights!



Monday
-Our very own Nurse Hajek visited our classroom to talk with us about her job as our school nurse. She brought tools such as the thermometer and stethoscope. She talked about how she helps out our school by taking care of our children who are sick. We also began learning about the color pink and the letters Dd and Rr. The pink song is a long song! We also collected a leaf to measure and write about. Such fun!


Tuesday-We began our reading groups today! We are learning sight words and concept of word. Please sign the text copy each night and practice the sight words. Students also visited Raz Kids during our laptop rotation. Feel free to continue to practice Raz Kids at home. In math, we also played a game called Roll, Add, and Color. It was fun!


Wednesday-"Orange" You Glad You're Kind Day! Students in our school wore orange to celebrate Unity Day. In writing, we read Round is A Mooncake. This book of shapes started great discussion on all shapes. This sparked great writing ideas! In math, we collected leaves to create our very own graph.


Thursday- Wonder Lounge Day! Students visited a fun math app on iPods to work on adding numbers. We also continued to read books by David Weisner. We have read Tuesday and The Three Pigs. We discussed how a lot of his books are Caldecott Medal winners.
