POPCORN WORDS: is, his, this
COLOR WORD: green
We read books with green characters…
We made the color green! We read the story Little Blue and Little Yellow. Little Blue and Little Yellow were friends and when they hugged each other they made Little Green. The Kinders had fun listening to this story. After the story, they each got their own Little Blue and Little Yellow and made their very own Little Green! They were excited to get to bring it home!
READING: This week during reading, we finished reading about real world books (while sounding like a teacher) and began being storybook readers! We practiced with a familiar story – The Three Billy Goats Gruff. The Kinders had fun looking at the pictures, remembering the words and then reading along. They enjoyed repeating familiar parts of the story! We ended the week getting our own copy of The Three Billy Goats Gruff and practiced reading it!
WRITING: During writing this week, we finished our first three page booklet! We wrote about school – the lunchroom, our classroom and the playground. We worked hard on adding a lot of details in our pictures, we labeled our pictures and then wrote a sentence that matches the picture. We made our books fancy by adding color to it!
MATH: This week during math, we looked at shapes and sorted them into two groups – circles and not circles. We compared numbers by putting a certain number of cubes on a graph, finding the number tile that matches it and then deciding which number is bigger or smaller. We practiced writing the numbers 1, 2 and 3 in our math workbooks. We ended the week by finding groups of a given number and circling those groups.
PHONICS: We started learning about phonics this week. We met a new friend that is going to help us along our phonics journey – her name is Mabel. She is a stuffed elephant that is living in our classroom. We learned all about Mabel’s name – it starts with an M, it has 5 letters in it, it has 2 syllables. Then we thought of things we could put in Mabel’s “home” that also start with M – a mop, a mouse, a mitten, a mirror, a marker, milk, a mailbox, etc. We had a lot of fun learning a new chant to help us with letter sounds and the names of other kindergarteners in our class!
ABC BOOTCAMP: We learned about the letters M, N and O. We talked about what the letters look like, practiced making the letter sounds, writing the letters, learned about and colored things that start with that letter.
We read My Mouth is a Volcano. This story helped us learn what to do if we are going to “erupt”.
We read How Full Is Your Bucket For Kids. We learned all about how we want to be bucket fillers, not bucket dippers!
WALK-A-THON FUN: On Thursday we had our annual Georgetown Walk-a-Thon! It looked a little different this year without parents, but we still had a fun time! We walked around the track and got some exercise!
