What We Are Learning

  • September 11
    I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We're jumping into the first full week with a lot of enthusiasm this morning!  We've already learned that our letter of the week is A and that we'll be working on the number 2 this week.  We'll be using apples and sampling different kinds of apples to enhance our learning.  In math, we're continuing to count and learn to write numbers and should have all digits down by the end of the week.  We're having our first phys. ed. class today, which the kids are all very excited about!  Our inquiry unit is all about how to get along and solve problems as they arise.  We'll write our first journal entry this week as well and work on labeling what we see and adding detail to the picture.

    We survived the first week of kindergarten!  Although there were a few tears and lots of tired kiddos (as well as a very tired teacher!), we had lots of laughs and learned about how the classroom will run as well as many different parts of school.  We toured the school, met many of the adults who work in the building, had fun at recesses and lots of other fun new things.  
    Next week we'll review all that we've learned and jump into learning about our frist letter of the week-C.  You may be wondering, why would they start with C?  The reason is learning how to write the letter C helps with writing many other letters, such as d, e, g, o and q.  We'll be reading a lot of Pete the Cat books next week and also learning about the number 1.  Our formal math lessons will begin this week as well.  We've made some class rules and we'll be learning about how to work as a school family.  I hope your kiddo had a good week!  I'll post this email on my website as well every week.  Enjoy the rest of the Labor Day weekend!

    I hope everyone enjoyed the Memorial Day weekend.  It sure was hard to get going this morning with gray and drizzly skies.  This week we're going to continue our review of the letters, working on F through I.  Our geometry unit will be finished by the end of the week and then we will begin another unit on geometry.  In writing, we're still working on proper letter formation for all of the letters we are reviewing as well as writing sentences and adding details.  We are continuing our inquiry unit, Look At Me!  You should have received a homework assignment to complete last Friday in your child's folder.  Students will be sharing their timelines in class on June 9.  Please be sure your child is able to talk about their timeline.  Next Tuesday we will go to the Capital Center for the Arts to watch the play "Pete the Cat." A permission slip will be coming home today.  Please have the slip signed and sent in and $3.50 by next Monday.
