October Kindergarten News!!!
**Please pack extra underwear and a set of clothes in your child's backpack in case of an accident or spill during lunch. This way we will have an extra pair of clothes to change into if needed!
During the month of October we will be working with numbers 1-10. We will practice representing those numbers with our fingers, adding with numbers 1-10, and counting to find and answer the question: How Many? We will learn how to play shake and spill, and work with partners to count collections of objects! We will also introduce the concepts of groups that have more, less, or the same.
Student's are beginning to read familiar leveled books on their own! We have learned many ways we can read, and ways we can be an avid readers. We are working on studying the pictures and finding the words that match the picture along with the pattern from beginning to end.
This month we will continue to write our own true stories We have thought about something we did or somewhere we went, and started drawing pictures and labeling, and creating sentences to match our pictures. Students have been working hard on writing the sounds we hear as we stretch out our words!
This month we have learned many new letter sounds using Lively Letters! Students hear a story about the letter, practice the sound, hear a song, and then learn and work on writing the letter using letter formation maps. Check out the videos here to practice and review at home!
Review Lively Letters!
Count collections of objects at home, and ask How Many? You can count silverware, toy cars, windows in your home, people, etc.
Read to your child everyday!!
Stretch out words and practice drawing a labeling pictures.
**Please remember to pack a snack in your child's backpack!** :)
This month we started our Community Unit! We are learning about what makes a community, how a community works together, and are building communities in our block area. The students LOVED reading the book Abiyoyo and acted the story out in dramatic play. Listen to the story at home here:
