Hello Parents,

It’s the last week in May. You may think things will be winding down, but some things are just beginning! Like, our writing and reading have both just exploded! If you could read all of the books that we have been writing, you would see how far we have come! And in our reading, we are putting together all of the concepts we have been working on all year-it’s so exciting to see! This is the best time of year to be in kindergarten.

Here’s what we’re up to this week:
Today we are making our “Hair Heads”. We have a big book that shows us how to do this, so we are going to see how easy it is to follow directions (also, it is a great example of writing a “How To” book).

In math we are learning about 3D shapes, and enjoying some of the fun activities that go along with this.

We will be sending guided reading books home this week, look for them Tuesday in your child’s book bag.

Please remember there is No School FRIDAY! for kindergarten. All other grades have school.

Here are some more notes:

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend, I know I did! Here’s what’s up in KD this week:
Guided Reading- we will be doing Guided Reading in the classroom this week, no books will be sent home. We will send books home next week!

Literacy- we are thinking about our writing this week, and writing “How To…” books. Our big book is a “How to…” book called Grass Heads, so it gives us some great ideas on writing.

In math we will be beginning our unit on Geometry and Measurement, and we will be looking at 3D shapes. We always have a lot of fun with these two units, a great way to end our year in math for sure.

Here are some things to be aware of:

May 30- New Kindergarten children come to visit- NO SCHOOL for Kindergarten children ONLY this day. If you have an older child, they still have school, only Kindergarten children have the day off. Thank you for your understanding!

Hello Parents,

Can’t believe how time is winding down for us this year! But, there is still a lot more fun and learning to be had before we are finished! Here is what is on tap for the week:

We are combining math and literacy in an intentional way this week by finishing up our unit on numbers to 10 with the book, “The Number 10”. We have covered all but one sight word, so we will learn about ‘an’ this week and add it to our bank of sight words. From here on out, we will be focusing on sight word review. We continue to write and read each day.

In math we are finishing up our unit on numbers and will start a unit on measurement next week.

We have some plants to plant and watch grow. We will be keeping track of their growth throughout the next weeks.

Other notes to keep track of:

I think that is all for now! Have a  great week,
