Week Of April 5th

Highlights from last week....

We hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Last week we were learning machines!

In ELA, we learned about how we get from here to there. Our letters of the week were q and j. Our sight words were me and here. Please continue to work with your child at home with their sight words.

In Math, we worked on composing and decomposing numbers.

In Science, we started our unit on habitats and learned about the Desert. We created a desert habitat with the entire kindergarten. It is still a work in progress, so pictures will be included in next week's newsletter.

A peek at our learning this week....

This week our class will be reading stories and learning about our country’s national symbols, monuments, and national parks, such as the American flag, the White House, and the Grand Canyon.

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

Word Workout

  • Vocabulary: country, travel Talk about places in the United States where you have traveled or would like to visit with your child. Then invite your child to draw a picture of that place.
  • My Words to Know

High-Frequency Words: this, what Write the words this and what on paper. Then have your child trace each word. Think of short sentences that include each word and write them down. Have your child point to each word and read the sentences.

Category Words: ordinal numbers Help your child point to and identify each image using ordinal numbers.

Phonics: y, z Help your child think of words with the letter y and the letter z. Give clues to help your child identify the words. Make a list of the words, and then have your child underline the letter y or z in each one.

In Math, we will continue using number bonds to decompose and compose numbers.

In Social Studies, we will learn about national symbols.

Half Day on Wednesday

We will have a half day of school on Wednesday. Please note that work is sent home with your child in their folder on that day. Please have your child complete the work and send it back the next day. Thank you!


Many families have been reaching out to ask what we need for our classes. Our classes are running low on Clorox wipes, dry erase markers and glue sticks. If you would like to donate any of these items to your child's class, we would really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
