First Weekly Wrap Up

We have finished our first week of kindergarten! We had a great few days this week, and I'm sure we have a great year ahead of us!

We have an ocean theme in our classroom, so we used some props for our first day of kindergarten photos.



We spent a lot of time this week learning procedures and routines and we will continue to do that in the next few weeks. One of our regular activities is singing. Some of this is to work out some extra energy, and a lot of the songs help us learn.
Another big part of our day is centers. Students work on independent activities with a partner in order to give me a chance to work with small groups or do assessments.
We read a lot of books throughout the day, and eventually, your children will be learning to read as well! One of the books we read was Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. This story uses the letters of the alphabet as characters. We decorated the first letter of our name to practice recognizing letters and using liquid glue. These will go in our hallway soon.
Next week, we are starting our Reading and Math Curriculum. We are going to be meeting Common Core Standards throughout the year, and the curriculum series we have help us do that.
