Our Kindergarteners are so excited about our trip to the farm next week! We have prepared for our visit by reading books about animals and life on the farm. In our small reading groups we focused on remembering details from the story including identifying the animals we read about, the author, illustrator, characters, problem and solution in the story. In phonics, we have continued our lessons on all short vowel sounds and ending sounds. In Math, we continued our lessons on counting on from the greater number and using a number line to solve equations. We also spent time on the computer allowing children time to become familiar with using a mouse. Both math and reading skills were practiced. I look forward to seeing the great books your dear children will read this weekend. Enjoy your weekend!
Dear Kindergarten family, Sep 22, 2023
This week many of our children completed the Reading MAP test. I am so proud of how they took their time counting syllables, identifying beginning and ending sound and rhyming words.
In Math, we practiced ones and tens’ places using a ten frame, introduced time and money and identified numbers to 15. In writing, we choose a topic to write about. Their stories and pictures are precious! We hope to finish them next week.For homework this weekend, please have your child spend time on Math IXL and practice their word lists. It helps students to build a good foundation and prepares them for next week’s Math MAP test.

Dear Kindergarten family,
Yesterday we had an amazing field trip to the Little Red School House! We’re thankful for our wonderful chaperones and for the good weather. When returning to school, we wrote a short story about the things we saw using key transition words. Kindergarteners drew beautiful illustrations to match their story.
In Math, some of the skills we practiced this week were solving simple addition problems using a number line, one to one correspondence, and counting on from a number other than zero. In Reading, we counted the number of syllables in a word and identified words that rhyme. My thanks to all the families who are reading with their children and recording the books read on a reading log along with practicing sight words. Your precious ones are enjoying learning to read!
Many of our children are bringing recess toys. It would be helpful to have the toys in a bag so they stay clean and safe. Thank you and a great weekend!
