Weekly Wrap Up

We had a great week! We finished up our study on penguins and polar bears. We compared the animals, and I was so proud of the answers the kids came up with!
I had the students choose their favorite from the two and write their opinions. This is one of our standards in kindergarten, and they rocked it! I am so impressed with this group. I collected the writing and went through the rubric with our goals for kindergarten and then returned them to you on Friday.

We spent this week reading Goldilocks stories. Our class really enjoys when we read different versions of fairy tales! We did this with gingerbread stories in December, and I was glad to be able to do it again. I even heard some kiddos making up their own stories with their friends throughout the week.

We also celebrated the 100th day of school on Thursday! We had a great day. We made crowns.

We worked on counting to 100 by ones and tens! We made jellyfish with 100 stickers. They had a blast, and were building fine motor skills without realizing it.

We also painted with q tips to make 100 dots - in groups of 10.

 Almost every student in our class can count to 100 by ones and tens! Every student can identify all capital letters! I am so proud of the goals this class is meeting. I will be sending home a skills check update early next week, and you can also see grades on the parent portal.

Next week, we are starting addition in math. We will start using concrete objects and pictures before just using numbers. We will continue to work on read simple words with and without blends. I've been so amazed at how quickly we have started to apply blends while reading. In Science, we are going to learn about objects in the sky - the sun, moon, and stars.

Thanks for all your support and all the work you do with your child.
