Congratulations to Lorenza, our life skill leader this month for Caring! Next month will be Curiosity. We will be discussing what it means to be curious in class...a conversation at home would be great too!
In Math, we have been working on place value. We also have been using different objects as a measuring tool. We used paper clips, popsicle sticks, and unifix cubes to measure objects in the classroom.
Our Social Studies Unit is focusing on how we get along in school, how we share, and be a good sport. Today we discussed the importance of learning from each other and what is special about us that we can share or teach with someone else.
In Garden this week half the class made salsa and the other half of the class looked for different types of homes in the garden (nest, holes, etc). We will switch next Monday.
Reminder, our Library day is Wednesday.
This week in Science we discussed different tones of sound and students made their own xylophones.
Thank you for all the great gifts for the classroom!!!!
Before school started, the primary teachers participated in a Zoo Phonics training. Allie and Alana introduced Zoo Phonics mid way through kindergarten last year. I have already started incorporating Zoo Phonics within our Daily 5 guided reading. I will discuss this further at Back to School Night.
I sent more books home for reading practice. Add them to the zip lock bag.
Picture Day is September 25th! Forms went home today.
Back to School Night for parents is on Thursday, September 26th at 6pm. Everyone meets in the gym and then visits your child class. I know many of you have several classes to visit. Stop by my class to say hello and grab a packet, or I will send it home the next day if you can't make it.
