    Our Week at a Glance

    Fundations- We will begin with Unit 2, Week 3 which is continuing our focus on writing letters and introducing the correct formation of all uppercase letters and alphabetical order.  We will be writing all 26 uppercase and lowercase letters during this time.  Weekly pages will come home that correlate to what we are learning in the classroom.  Please help your student with their upcoming pages nightly and return Friday.

     

    Language Arts- We will continue our reading & comprehension skills, phonics, letter recognition, handwriting, vocabulary, phonological awareness and high-frequency words in our whole group setting. Please read with your child nightly!

     

    Math- This week we will continue unit 5 which is learning numbers 0-20.  We have covered 0-10 as of now and each topic will introduce the next consecutive number from 11-20 and we will learn to count, read and write each number. We will also look at place value in this unit up to the tens place. There will be a unit test next week!

100th Day of School Celebration!

Wednesday, January 31st is kindergarten’s 100th day of school and I am so excited to celebrate this with my class! On the 100th day students are encouraged to dress as if they were 100 years old! Lots of walkers and gray-haired kids I bet I will see!!

We will make 100th day hats, paint 100 dots, see how many times students can write their names in 100 seconds and make a 100th day trail mix!

This is where some parent participation is needed! I need each child to bring in a trail mix item in original packaging* to share by TUESDAY, January 30th so it can be checked by the nurse.  This can be cheerios, M&Ms, popcorn, Cheez-its, Goldfish, mini marshmallows, Chex cereal, raisins, pretzels, chocolate chips, Fruit Loops, etc.  Students will choose 10 different food items and count out 10 of each so they can make a 100th day 100 item trail mix for a fun time snack! Please email me the item you will be providing and let’s try for whole class participation to make this a memorable 100th Day!

*Items must be manufactured in the USA or Canada to be approved by Nurse Campbell and please NO peanut/nuts.
