This week we discussed how visualizing pictures in our heads helps us to understand both fiction and non-fiction text. We have also started our Social Studies Unit in Non-Fiction. We are learning about Our World. This week we read, "Me on the Map" and learned that we live (from big to small) on planet Earth, North America, United States, Illinois, then Woodridge.
We are adding more details to our informational pieces. We will begin Opinion writing soon.
I'm looking forward to seeing everyone this coming Thursday and Friday.
Thursday, February 11th is Half Day
Thursday, February 11th is a half day of school for all students. In kindergarten, the A.M. kiddos will come from 8:20-10:00 a.m. and the P.M. Kiddos will come from 10:00-11:40 a.m. Please let me know if you have questions.
100's Day/Valentine's Day
We will be celebrating 100's Day and Valentine's Day on Thursday, February 11th. I will have some activities planned for the festivities. The only thing the kiddos need to bring in are: The 100's Day Math Project, which I sent home in the homework packet and Valentine Cards. (the cards are optional).
If you wish to have your child pass out Valentine's Day cards, please send them with your child on Thursday, February 11th. Do Not put kids names on the envelopes. Each class has 22 students.
