This Week In Kindergarten
October 27 - October 31
This week in Language Arts we will be continuing to work in our SuperKids unit for the letter Aa. We will be focusing on the letter sounds /c/, /o/, /g/ and /a/ and using them to identify beginning, medial and ending sounds in words. We will also be working on practicing rhyming words and learning about sentence structure (uppercase letter at beginning, spacing between words and punctuation at the end.) On Friday we will meet our fifth SuperKid, Doc.
We will be wrapping up Topic 3 in math this week by working on a problem solving lesson and completing the Topic 3 assessment. We will begin Topic 4 - Comparing and Ordering Numbers 0-10 on Thursday.
We will be adding two poems to our Poetry Folders this week during Religion - The Candy Corn Prayer and The Jack-O-Lantern Prayer. We will also be learning This Little Light of Mine. On Thursday we will talk about All Saints Day and begin a mini-unit on several familiar saints.
Tomorrow we will wrap up our mini-unit on bats by completing a fact sheet. We will use the nonfiction texts we've read in class to complete this activity. For the rest of the week we will use our time in Science to complete several reading activities based off of Halloween stories. We will pick back up with Social Studies on November 3rd.
Notes & Announcements:
Halloween Celebration & Trunk-Or-Treat: This Friday we will celebrate Halloween in the classroom with a fun celebration in the afternoon. Students will have a fun craft to complete then come out to the back parking lot for Trunk-Or-Treating. Afterwards, we will return inside for a snack and Halloween video to wrap up the day.
Healthy Snack Sale: The school nurse, Mrs. Shouse, will be running a healthy snack sale on Thursday. Please see the Friday flyer for specific information about the sale. If your child will be purchasing anything from the sale please place their money inside their lunch box so they can grab it quickly and independently during the sale.
Uniforms: This is the last week for summer uniforms. Beginning next week (November 3rd) Kindergarten students may not wear shorts. The Kindergarten winter uniform is navy sweatpants, grey/yellow t-shirts, and navy school sweatshirts. Students may take their sweatshirt off when needed but may not wear shorts again until spring. If your child's change of clothes is summer attire and you would like to switch it out for winter attire please send the winter clothes in a labeled Ziploc bag and we will switch the bags.
THERE IS NO HOMEWORK THIS WEEK - PLEASE KEEP READING NIGHTLY AND HAVE LOTS OF FUN PREPARING FOR A FUN HALLOWEEN ON FRIDAY!!
Have a wonderfully spooky week filled with many more treats than tricks! Please let me know if you have any questions.
Happy Playing, Laughing & Learning!!
