This Week in Kindergarten
March 2 - March 6
This week in LA, we will meet our last SuperKid - Hot Rod and learn about the letter Hh and the /h/ sound. We will also be doing activities to celebrate Read Across America Day! On Monday, Mrs. Schratz will read The Cat in the Hat on fun/silly hat day. On Thursday, I'll read my favorite Dr. Seuss story Fox in Socks on fun/silly sock day! On Friday, we will watch a fun Dr. Seuss video with PK.
This week in math we will finish up our first set of Addition/Subtraction units by completing a lesson on deciding if a story problem is an addition problem or a subtraction problem. On Thursday, we will begin Topic 9 - More Addition and Subtraction where we will focus on determining different ways to show numbers through addition. For example - 4 can be shown as 2+2 or 3+1.
This week in religion we will continue to focus on Lent. We will read The Very Hungry Caterpillar and make our clothes pin caterpillars. On Friday, we will join our 8th grade buddies for mass at 9:00.
This week in we will finish up our US Symbols unit in Social Studies by reading and writing about the White House. We will have a "finish-up/review" day before beginning our next Science unit - Healthy Eating. Students should be able to give at least one fact about all of the US Symbols we studied: the American flag, the bald eagle, the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell and the White House.
Notes & Announcements:
March Homework: March homework is posted on the class blog and will come home in your child's folder tomorrow. The SuperKids word list document has had a make-over! All the words for the first semester of SuperKids are now listed - we will work to complete Unit 12 and Unit 13 by the end of next week. I recommend reviewing these lists regularly - feel free to print them out to choose one list to practice daily during homework time.
Field Trip Wednesday: On Wednesday, we will join 1st and 2nd grade on our field trip. Please keep in mind we will not have snack on Wednesday. We will return in time to have our regular lunch and afternoon schedule.
Early Dismissal Friday: School will dismiss at 12:25 on Friday. Aftercare is available for those pre-registered for Friday - the registration form can be found in the Friday Flyer.
Have a wonderful week!!
Happy Playing, Laughing & Learning!
