This Week in Kindergarten
This week in Kindergarten, students focused on making predictions in reading. A prediction is thinking about what might happen and using clues from the story to make a good guess about what will happen next. We read a few fall stories and practiced using our "schema" to help us make predictions. We will continue practicing this skill next week. In writing, we continue to focus on using sight words to write simple sentences. In math, students practiced identifying and writing teen numbers using counters and ten frames. Please practice counting objects to 20 and writing teen numbers at home.
Fun Run Update
Next Week in Kindergarten
We will begin our study of forces in motion. This unit is fun and the students will get to enjoy going outside to learn about push, pull, slide and fly! Please make sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the weather.
