This Week in Kindergarten…
Popcorn Words- these, they
Split Lit – We continued to work on our literacy skills during split lit this week. We are always excited when there are new stations to try!
Reading – In reading this week, we continued our studying characters. We had fun playing a game where we had to guess the character’s feelings and show that feeling using body language and facial expressions. The kids did a great job and had so much fun playing! We made character connections in all of the books we read this week.
Math – In math this week, we finished unit 4. We kept practicing adding and subtracting, finding partner of different numbers, looking for the number that is greater or less and studying 3D shapes. We ended the week by taking unit 4 test…in our offices!
Writing – In writing this week, we practiced writing how to’s. We wrote about how to make cookies and how to make spaghetti. We also wrote a how to as a class. We wrote How To Get Hot Lunch. We shared the pen and wrote the how to together. We thought of our idea, told the steps in order, wrote the steps in words and drew the pictures. It was fun to do it all together! Next week we will try it all by ourselves!
We have 5 new visitors in our classroom that we will be watching grow! They are CATERPILLARS!! They arrived this week and we are excited to watch them grow into beautiful BUTTERFLIES!!
Earth Day – We had a fun day celebrating our Earth and what we can do to help and protect our Earth. We read a book about Earth day, made Earth day headbands, did an Earth day color-by-number and made an Earth craft.
Mrs. Baker’s daughter, Ashleigh, brought their dog for a visit on Friday. The kinders have heard a lot about Daisie and were excited to finally get to meet her! She even showed the kinders how she could sit and shake…for a treat!
