In math, we continue to work on developing fluency with our addition and subtraction facts between 0 and 5. We are also beginning to develop an understanding of place value. We are working with teen numbers and have learned that teen numbers are made up of a group of ten and "some more". For example, 15 is made up of 1 group of 10 and 5 more.
In Reader's Workshop, we are thinking about the character's in our stories. We are looking at their faces to get clues about how they are feeling and when reading dialogue, we are working on making our voices sound just like they would really sound. We use many books by Mo Willems (Elephant and Piggie) to teach this concept and students love them!

Keara's Mom read a great personalized book spelling out Keara's name within the story. Children were very curious about where she got the book. If you are interested, the website is wondrousink.com/myworld.
It was nice to see so many families at the science expo on Saturday. It sounds like the planetarium was a big hit!
Save the date: On June 9th we will be taking a Kindergarten Field Trip to East Beach and Ninigret Park in Charlestown. Field Guides from Frost Drew Nature Center will guide us through an exploration of the estuary and barrier beach. We will be looking for chaperones. All chaperones will need a current BCI. You still have time to complete this if you think you would like to join us.
