As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:
What is your favorite center in Kindergarten?
Tell me about one of the stories that Mrs. Poston has read to you.
Reading in Action
Read a story to your child. After reading the story, talk to your child about who "characters" are in a story. Ask them to name the characters in the story you just read.
As writers we are learning to add words to our illustrations to give the reader information about our pictures.
As readers, we are learning to track print and look at the pictures to help tell the story.
As mathematicians, we are making patterns.
Emma and McKenna making patterns.
Alynn is creating designs using pattern blocks.
Jaleigha, Olivia and Raelyn made patterns with unifix cubes during our math mini lesson.
As social scientists, we are learning how to be good friends to our classmates to ensure that they feel safe, valued and loved.
Thank you to the families that have donated Play Doh to our Art Center. If you have not donated yet, please send in some Play Doh next week.
We met Dr. Somerall this week. She is the Reading Coach at our school. She will be working with our class this year during Reading Workshop and Writing Workshop.
Grandparents/Grand Friends Day on Friday
Please share family activities with us. We will try to provide time for your child to share about their special activities in class and also post some of the pictures in our newsletter. This is a great way for us to share with one another and build our classroom community/family.
