Conversation Starters

As a way to foster conversations with your child about what we are learning, please ask him/her the following:

What is Mycology? (the study of fungi/mushrooms)

Can you create two sets of objects, then tell which is greater than or less than? Or...are they equal?

Word Work

We can name words that rhyme.

Writers Workshop

As Writers, we can think about....and plan out our stories across the pages.

Reading Workshop

As Readers, we can think about about what we are reading.

Literacy Workstations

Shared Reading

We can track print (touch each word as we read). We can use picture clues to determine unknown words.

Our students have learned so many of our "big book stories". They are even choosing to read the big books during Friday's Free Choice Center Time (Explorations). Way to go, readers!

Family Fun

We welcome all of our kindergarten friends and families to send in pictures of family fun. We will have your child share his/her pictures with our classmates on the SmartBoard. Sometimes, we might include the pictures in our weekly Smore newsletter.
