This was an exciting week in Kindergarten! We started our week learning virtually and ended the week learning in person. Way to go kinders and families!! Thank you so much for all of your support during this time!! I really do appreciate it!!
Reading: This week during reading at home the kinders read stories to family members, stuffed animals and friends. At school we learned what it means to retell a book after reading and practiced this skill. We practiced retelling the story of the Gingerbread Man – learning about the characters, setting and the order things happened in the story. We also read a paper together looking for all of our popcorn words in it!
Math: This week during math, the kinders practiced comparing numbers – looking for the greater number, counting by tens using gingerbread people and counting ten frames.
Writing: This week in writing, the Kinders wrote a small moment story at home and did a great job! At school we practiced labeling a gingerbread man and writing sentences – making sure to use an uppercase letter to begin the sentence and a sentence stopper at the end.
Literacy: The kinders did activities that focused on filling in the missing parts of the gingerbread story (using popcorn words), syllable claps and building new words with word families (rhymes).
Holiday Fun: We listened to many different stories about the Gingerbread Man this week. It was fun to listen to many different books where the Gingerbread Man is a character. Some of our favorites were called The Gingerbread Man is Loose (at different places). We had fun trying a gingerbread cookie and voting if we liked it or not. More Kinders voted yes than no. It’s always fun to have a cookie!
