What are we Learning About?
This week we are focusing on story elements-character, setting, and events-as well as summarizing stories. This is an easy comprehension strategy to reinforce at home. Please continue to read to your child nightly!
This week we were introduced to our second vowel-a. The students continue to work on differentiating the sound between o and a in CVC words. They are doing a great job with their letters and sounds.
The kindergartners continue to work on writing their names with a capital letter at the beginning and lowercase letters for the rest. We are working on spacing between words and identifying punctuation at the end of the sentence. This week the kindergartners are writing "I can" sentences.
This week we our focus has been on correct number formation. We continue to work on number formation and will complete the introduction of number formation this week. We continue to work on counting and identifying numbers within a sequence.
Social Studies and Science
The kindergartners worked collaboratively to identify the rules that we feel are important in our classroom community-be kind, be respectful, and be safe. We continue to build our classroom community by building friendships and get to know you games with one another.
In religion we are talking about how names are good. We discussed the different ways that names are used and realized the importance of our names. We will talk about how holy God and Jesus' names are. The kindergartners continue to practice making the sign of the cross and genuflecting upon entering their pew at mass.
