This Week in Kindergarten…
Reading: In reading this week, we practiced building our stamina as readers. The Kinders are getting really good at reading the whole time! We also practiced reading with partners…strengthening our Partner Power!
Writing: In writing this week, we finished our opinion writing. The Kinders practiced their opinion writing, by choosing their favorite pet to write about. They also made an opinion about Georgetown Elementary and wrote about it. The Kinders had a lot of fun trying 2 different kinds of mints and forming an opinion and writing about which they like best. Then, they wrote about it! We finished the week by the Kinders taking their writing test. We call this on-demand writing. For this on-demand writing, the Kinders had to write about their favorite restaurant and give their opinion on why it’s the best!
Math: In math this week, we kept working on tiny tumblers, adding and subtracting, teen numbers and learning about greater and less. I’m very proud of how hard they are working on their math skills and how much they are learning!
Split Lit: We practiced our reading skills during different split lit stations this week!
American Symbols: We started to learn about American symbols this week. We learned about the American Flag, the Bald Eagle and the Liberty Bell. We will continue to learn more American symbols next week.
Red, White and Blue Day Fun! We had a lot of fun on Friday celebrating red, white and blue day! We played American symbol math games! The Kinders enjoyed red, white and blue popsicles, made adorable Flag headbands, waved mini American Flags and went on a parade around the school. We even had the 4th and 5th graders cheering for us as we walked by!
