Kindergarten Newsletter

            This week we focused on the story, “Life in an Ocean” by Carol Lindeen.  We talked about the characters and setting of the story.  Our letter of the week this week was S, and over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase S as well as the sounds that the letter S makes.  Our letter of the week next week will be the letter P and we will continue working on our word wall words.

            This week we also continued our unit in mathematics dealing with numbers 0-5.  By the end of this unit, your child should be able to model, count, draw, write and read numbers 0 through 5.  We will continue this unit next week.

            Our science topic for this week was water and we discussed the earths’ waterways (oceans, rivers, lakes, ponds, etc.)  We also talked about the importance of water to all life on Earth.  Our science topic for next week will be weather and we will explore the types of weather that happens on Earth as well as the seasons.  We will also learn about some safety procedures to follow during severe weather conditions.       

            Our social studies topic for this week was history and we discussed what history means as well as who Christopher Columbus was.  Our social studies topic for next week will be time (e.g. days, weeks, months).
