Told through the eyes of the class...
In Letterland we learned about Mr. U. We learned about Mr. O. We learned about Golden Girl. We learned about Eddy Elephant.
In math we learned that when we count up we get a bigger number, that's adding. We learned about greater than, less than, and equal to. We learned about adding two more. We learned about counting one back. Your number gets smaller.
Next week we will review all Letterlanders taught thus far, as well as sight words. We will continue to discuss Thanksgiving, telling each other the things that we are most thankful for.
When we return from Thansgiving break, we will learn about the Letterlander Kicking King (Kk). We will also teach the students about the digraps -ck and -ng. The class will learn the sight words little and big. We will begin our thematic unit on Winter Celebrations that are celebrated by different cultures in America.
Next week we will continue to work on counting and adding. There will be no new skills taught next week.
When we return from Thanksgiving break, we will continue to work on addition and counting.
Parental FYIs and Reminders
I know I say this every week, but it is very important that all students remain on task during lessons, and don't talk while instruction is being given to the class. We have plenty of time where the students can talk to each other, during instruction is not the time. Please talk to your child about the school and classroom expectations.
I have enjoyed meeting with each and everyone of you! I look forward to working with you all for the remainder of the year to make sure that your child learns everything that is needed in kindergarten.
Please be on the look out for a sign up genius concerning our Winter Celebration in class. It will be held on Friday, December 18th. We will definitely need volunteers to help with the program. If you would like to volunteer, please make sure that you have filled out the for for background checks so you are able to do so.
