Weekly Wrap Up

We finished our first full week of kindergarten! The kids are doing SUCH a great job with learning procedures and learning during our subjects!

In reading this week, we worked on rhyming words, characters, and letter identification. We worked on understanding the book we are reading by answering questions and having conversations with a friend. We learned the sight words "I" and "am." Next week we will add "and." There were some home activities you can do next week on the back of the newsletter today. Here are some students working on drawing a character today.

In Math, we are working on answering the question "How can we show how many?" We have worked with numbers 1-5 and represented them with pictures, numbers, and objects. Here a chart we made as a class to answer the question.
Next week, we are going to be comparing groups and decided if they are greater than, less than, or equal to. I'm planning on homework on Tuesday, so keep an eye out for it!

In Social Studies, we learned about our country and learned the Pledge of Allegiance - ask your child to say the pledge and see how well they do! There's a lot of big words, and we practice every day. We drew the flag and its parts on a brace map that is hanging in the hallway. We also colored the flag that came home yesterday.

Next week, we are going to be learning how to sort objects by their properties for Science.

You can see some pictures from Open House on the East Website
