    Soaring to New Heights in Kindergartern  

     

       SEPTEMBER 20, 2109

    Thank you for coming to Back to School Night!  We had 100% families represented and it feels like its going to be a great year in Kindegarten.  

    We have been working hard learning to be a classroom family and the children have shown awesome friendship skills and problem solving skills. 

    L.A.   In our literacy centers we have focused on letter recognition by searching for letters in magazines and sorting Uppercase letters and lowercase letters.  We have worked on letter sounds on the new computer center and have danced and punched out our letter sounds.  We also do a morning message everyday where we work together to sound out words and read using pointing and actions for uppercase and punctuation.  

    Math   In math we are focusing on counting, recognizing and writing numbers.  During guided math we have a secret number and show different ways to represent that number.  We ask what number comes before and after.  Then we count on from that number.  In math centers we have been having fun with number puzzles, locks and keys and number recognition games.  

    Thanks again for all your support!

    This week has flown by!!!  We have a very sweet class and I am so happy to have the opportunity to teach this group of kindergartners.  The students have been learning the routine of the classroom along with some fun activities to help us get to know each other.  We have begun writing workshop by learning the routine of our workshop and learning that writers write what they know.  Writing can be a drawing that tells a story or idea and it can include some letters and words or sentences.  In Math we are talking about same and different and how each of us are the same in many ways and different in other ways.  We graphed our differences in eye color, hair color and even our favorite zoo animals. We also looked at most, least and equal. 

    PS Don't forget to send in two snacks each day even if your child is buying.
