Keeping Up With Kindergarten
Mrs. Enright's Class
February 12, 2016
Our next day together, Wednesday the 17th, is our 100th day celebration. Please see the sign up genius that Becky set up for us if you would like to volunteer. We will be running about 5 different stations and would love to have some extra hands. Also, please remember to send in your 100th day writing piece and 100th day collection if you have not done so already. It has been fun seeing all the creative ideas coming in!
With the addition of new iPads to our K/1 hallway, we are asking for donations of headphones for the students to use. Ideally, we would love for each student to bring in their own pair in a labeled ziplock bag but being this far into the school year, we could get by with just 6 pairs to use during group work at centers until a new supply list comes out for next year. Thank you in advance to anyone who can help out with donations!
What's Happening in the Classroom?
Math: We have been working with unifix cubes to work on counting and grouping by 10's. One of the biggest challenges with this concept is switching from counting by 10's to counting by ones. We have been practicing this a lot in the classroom as the 100th day is approaching and we count our days in school.
Social Studies: We are continuing our study of how to be a good friend and are working on our class book to share the qualities we've been practicing. In addition to being good friends, we are working on how to be a good audience. We practice this each morning during sharing time and we were so excited to practice these skills when Mrs. McGroarty's first grade came by to share their nonfiction writing pieces with us.
