April Highlights

What's Happening in Kindergarten!

Reading Workshop

April is poetry month and we will be looking at a variety of poems through many different activities.
We will also continue with our sequence stories; noticing and wondering and comparing and contrasting.
We continue to select new and challenging books to bring home and read to our families. In Word Study we will work on expanding our decoding strategies and identifying word patterns. We are noting long and short vowel sounds.

Writing Workshop

We are starting "All About" books. We will write "All About Me" and progress to having the children choose their own topic to research.

Math

We will be focusing on numbers through thirty. We will also explore the concept of time.

Social Studies

We will continue to study all about maps. We will explore and write about what we learn.
