Kindergarten Newsletter

             This week we focused on the story, “A Bear for the Winter,” by Karen Wallace and in particular, the comprehension skill of sequencing events.  This week we also started working on the letter B.  Over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase B as well as the sound that the letter B makes.  Our letters of the week for the short week next week and the week after Thanksgiving will be the letters N and R.  We will also continue working on our word wall words. 

            This week we also continued our unit in mathematics dealing with numbers 6-10.  At the end of this unit, your child should be able to model, count, draw, write, and read numbers 0 through 10.  We will continue working on our numbers 0-10 next week as well the week after vacation.     

            Next week, we will also continue discussing the meaning of Thanksgiving.  After Thanksgiving break, we will continue working on the Earth (in science) and where we live (in social studies).  There will be no newsletter next week.  I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!    


Winter Clothing

            As the weather’s getting colder, please make sure to pack your child’s winter clothing (coat, hat, mittens, snow pants, and boots) as we play outside for approximately a half hour each day.  If your child has an extra pair of snow pants, please feel free to leave it here at school to save a little room in their backpack.  This also goes for sneakers if they do not wear them at home, they may leave them here at school.
