This Week In Kindergarten
August 31 - September 4
I am excited to report that our first week of school went very well! Thank you to everyone for your support and enthusiasm as your child begins their Kindergarten year at SAS! Below is a quick look at what we'll be doing this week in the classroom. Please let me know if you have any questions.
This week in LA we will build on the routines and procedures introduced last week with two fun read alouds and craft projects - This Kissing Hand and Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. On Wednesday, we meet our first SuperKid, Cass and begin work in our first student book of the year.
Much like LA, we will start the week's math instruction by building on the routines/procedures introduced last week. We will begin our calendar routine where we'll focus on patterns, days of the week, and months of the year. We will also begin learning to work with math manipulatives responsibly. On Wednesday, we'll complete our first EnVision workmat in Topic 1 (Numbers 1-5).
In your child's folder this week, you'll find the Topic 1 Opener information sheet and a math vocabulary sheet that will list math vocabulary for the year.
This week in religion, we will be practicing/learning the Our Father prayer. We will also begin our first unit God Gives Me Feelings. Through read aloud stories, bible stories and class discussion we will learn about noticing/identifying our feelings and how we can express them in the classroom.
We will begin our first social studies unit, Our Community, on Tuesday, September 8th.
