This Week In Kindergarten
October 20 - October 24
Thank You to all families that were able to attend conferences on Friday! It was a busy day but it was wonderful to be able to touch base with 24 families!
This week in Language Arts we will begin our fourth SuperKids unit. We will be meeting the SuperKid, Alf and learning all about the letter Aa (at this point in the year we will focus on the short /a/ sound). This week we will also work on recognizing words that can be found in the -AT family which will help us practice listening for the middle /a/ sound and rhyming words.
This week in math we will continue to work through Topic 3. We will be focusing on the numbers 6-10. We will take a look at building each number using counters on a tens frame as well as writing each of the numbers correctly. We are working as a whole group to create a mini anchor chart for each number which will include the number word, number in tally marks, a picture to represent the number and a set of counters arranged in tens frame format.
In celebration of the school wide Character Counts week we will be focusing on reading about each of the pillars of good character in religion. The pillars are: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring, citizenship (TRRFCC). We will be joining our 8th grade buddies for mass on Friday at 9:00. Noah's Ark puppet sets will also come home this week.
** Practice at Home: In Language Arts we're beginning to practicing the reading skill of retelling - using these puppets to retell the story of Noah's Ark is a great way to practice this important reading skill. **
This week in science we will finish up our unit on Seasons and begin a mini unit on Bats in celebration of Halloween. We will learn lots of bat facts and do a fun bat art project to go along with our readings!
