This Week in Kindergarten
March 23 - March 27
This week in LA we will finish up our unit on the letter Bb and begin our next unit on the letter Rr. Our newest memory word is the word of which we will focus on when reading and writing in class. We will continue to work on sentence writing and adding details to our writing by using describing words. We will also learn about the exclamation mark and how it changes the way we read sentences. *Word Lists for Semester 2 Units 1-2 will be posted on the homework page this evening.*
This week in math we will finish Topic 10 and begin Topic 11: Decomposing Numbers 11-19. During topics 10 and 11 our main focus has been using 10 to build larger numbers. For example: 10 and 1 is 11 or 10 and 5 is 15 and 16 is 10 and 6. We will continue to review addition and subtraction problems daily as a warm-up to our math instruction.
This week during religion we are turning our focus back to the Very Hungry Caterpillar as our focus for Lent. We will work on making our own caterpillars, creating a stick puppet set, and painting a caterpillar Lent prayer. We will join PK-2nd for Stations of the Cross on Friday before our Easter Celebration.
This week during science we will finish up our unit on Healthy Eating. We will reread one of my favorite stories, Strega Nona by Tomie DePaola as we talk about the grain group and review all 5 food groups before taking a few days off from science/social studies to have fun read aloud times for some great Easter stories!
