The kids did a great job of writing and reading today. We also worked on counting to 100 by 1s, 5s, and 10s. We also took down our fall decorations so they will be coming home today. Talk to you again on Monday and have a great long weekend!
Today we worked on sounding out words, journaling, numbers nine and ten, and had some fun with our reader pals. We have a very short week coming up, so today's newsletter will be the last for two weeks. I hope that the sick kiddos get better soon (we had five out today). Have a great weekend!
Today we had a lot of absences due to illness. We had a class of 16! We practiced sounding out words, wrote numbers 7 and 8 in our scarecrow books, and made coffee filter turkeys. I hope more kids are feeling better tomorrow!
We worked hard at writing quick words and sounding out words today. Your child may come home with incorrect spellings on certain words. This is perfectly okay; they will not learn how to misspell the words. Kindergarten children need to sound spell for a period of time and then slowly learn more tricks of the English language. They will spell correctly before you know it! We also visited the computer lab and talked more about being thankful. Have a great day!
Today we worked on sounds and the numbers 3 and 4. We also chose some new books for our reading center, read a Thanksgiving story, and journaled. We did not attend library today because of the book fair. We will have it again next Tuesday, even though it is a very short week. Have a great day!
We practiced our quick words and sounds today. We are also reviewing numbers 1-10 for another week. Our turkeys we made today turned out quite cute. We will talk about being thankful this week as well as next week. There will not be library again tomorrow, but we will get back into it next week. Have a great day!
Today, we worked on sounds and numbers. We will continue with our number writing next week. The reader pals stopped by and wrote Turkey Stories with the kids (they will be in their folders today). The kids are getting really good at copying sentences. We will now start sounding more words out and I will be spelling less for them. If you see words spelled incorrectly (except for quick words) it is okay. I just call it kindergarten spelling. Have a great weekend!
Today, we worked on some more scarecrow projects to decorate our school. We also practiced sounds and numbers, read a dinosaur book about school, and watched the Magic School Bus. Tomorrow is already Friday (wow!) so we will be visiting our reader pals and continuing our usual work. Have a great evening!
The kids did a great job of looking at books at the book fair. We talk about how they don't get to take anything home today, but that they can look and see the different books. We also went to the computer lab and worked on sounds and numbers. Have a great day!
Today we split into our reading groups and worked on number writing in math. We watched the book fair video and the kids are getting excited to visit the fair tomorrow. We did not have library today, so books are not due until next Tuesday. Have a great day!
Today, we worked on letter and sound 'Q' as well as numbers to 10. We visited the computer lab and wrote in our journals. As of now, we are copying sentences in our journals and not spelling our own words. For instance, today I wrote "I have a ___" on the board and the kids copied the sentence and filled in the blank with one of the following choices: cat, dog, fish, toy. In the upcoming weeks, the kids will begin spelling words on their own with a focus on sounds and not the proper spelling. We will not visit the library tomorrow due to the book fair. We will check out books on the 18th. Have a great day!
Today, the kids worked on the sounds (including the tricky 'Y' sound). We counted and talked about 'more' and 'less' during math. We colored a few scarecrows today and also ready a scarecrow book. With reader pals, the kids completed a math book called "Birds". Have a wonderful and SAFE weekend and talk to you again on Monday!
Today, we practiced our sounds and the number 10. We also made pattern corn to celebrate harvest (these are hanging on our walls at school). Tomorrow is already Friday so we will have reader pals. Have a great evening!
Today, we worked on numbers 8 and 9. We also practiced sounds and visited the computer lab. The new unit for the next few weeks is harvest. Today we talked about what foods might be harvested this time of year.
Today, we voted in our school election. Obama won the school election so now the kids are anxious to see the results of the real election. We also went to the library and practiced quick words. Have a great day!
