We Are Sailing Through Kindergarten!

January 29th, 2016


In your child's folder, you will find their January Report Card. Please review the report card, along with the supporting paperwork. Also, please sign the envelope and return on Monday. Thank you for your continued support at home!

This week...

  • We celebrated our January Birthdays. Happy birthday Teegan, Arianna, Liam, and Mia!
  • We continued working on our Expert Books in Writer's Workshop. We are in the drafting step of the writing process which means we are beginning to write our sentences. We are so excited to share everything we know about our expert topic!

Things we've learned...

  • We learned the following high frequency words: see and look. Please review these words with your child at home.
  • We learned the following Amazing Words: arch, barn, blacksmith, celebration, soldier, and sprinted.
  • We learned the following letters and sounds: Dd and Kk.
  • In math, we continued subtraction. We are still learning how to take objects away from a group and find out how many are left.

Books we've read...

  • Little Quack by Lauren Thompson
  • George Washington Visits by Dennis Fertig
  • Over and Under the Snow by Kate Messner
  • Bucket Filling from A to Z by Carol McCloud and Caryn Butzke

  • Please make sure your child’s name is on ALL homework. Please be sure to help your child read the directions carefully and check it when it is complete. Thank you for your continued support at home!
