What We Are Learning

  • November 5
    Did you enjoy your extra hour of sleep last night?  Haha, I know that kindergarten students don't really get the concept, so if they are like my kindergartener at home, we were up at the regular time and then exhausted by bedtime!  It's been pretty quiet here in the classroom this morning so far.  
    This week we will have two special events happening: Trash on the Lawn Day tomorrow and the Turkey Trot on Friday.  Trash on the Lawn Day is meant to raise awareness of waste and recycling at school, and learn what more students can do to help with both. It will be rain on shine, so please have your child wear warm, not new clothes as they will be sorting trash.  Also, closed toe shoes are a must.  We have never done this at school before, so I'm very interested to see what it's all about.  Friday will be the Turkey Trot at 1:00.  Students are asked to bring in a non-perishable food donation to give to the Loudon Food Pantry.  They will be running/walking a 1/2 mile loop behind the school and soccer field.  It's a really fun event!  Please be sure your child wears warm clothes and comfortable shoes.  
    As we get into cooler weather, please remember to send your child in with appropriate clothing.  Hats, mittens, gloves and scarves are good ideas on days when the temperature drops.  
    This week we'll be learning about more reading superpowers, being word scientists, comparing numbers 0-10 and finishing up our weather unit.  Please remember there is no school next Monday due to Veteran's Day.

    Hi Families,
    I hope everyone enjoyed the beautiful weekend!  This week we'll be learning all about apples and doing some projects to go along.  If anyone is willing to donate one or two green, yellow or red apples, it would be much appreciated.  We're going to be doing some taste testing and comparing how the different color apples taste.  We are finishing up our first math unit on the numbers 0-5.  In reading, we are continuing to read learn about the world books and have started to look for words that we can figure out.  This week we will launch our writer's workshop as well and start writing and drawing things on which we are experts. We have been working on learning more about each other's names recently.  Each student will be a star of the day and with that they have special jobs.  We also study their name very carefully, looking at the number and size of the letters, cheering out the spelling for each person's name before it goes on our star name wall.  I will not be sending the lunch slip reminder anymore, so please remind your child about their lunch and snack drink situation each morning.  We will always check the lunch box before any final lunch decisions are made.  Don't forget sweatshirts and jackets as the days get cooler! I had a few who were cold this morning.  Have a great week!

    In reading we are working on reading fluently.  You will see lots of the red and white decodable books coming home!  When students have read the books fluently to us, they will be sent home to read to you at home and to keep.  Please keep them for practice over the summer!

    In writing, we have just started a unit on how-to writing.  Students are thinking about things they know how to do independently and then writing the steps to do those things.  

    In math, we have finished the kindergarten curriculum!!!  You may have noticed their math lessons look a little different now and that's because we are actually working on first grade math.  Our program is awesome in that it provides step-up lessons so kids can see what the math will be like next year in school.  The kids have been so excited to use the first grade lessons.

    In science, we are wrapping up our unit on plants and animals.  We planted seeds and put some in the dark and some in the light.  We are patiently wait to see those first sprouts come up.  When they do and we've learned about what plants need, we will begin our last unit on force and motion.

    The next two weeks are very busy for us!  We are having the Turtle Lady come on Friday for an in-school field trip.  We will also watch the graduating seniors from 
    Merrimack Valley High School walk through our school.  Monday, June 18 is Field Day, with a rain date of June 21. Before we know it, it will be June 22-the last day of school!
