Kindergarten


November is upon us!  Here is what the kindergarteners will be doing over the next month!
 
Literacy:
The students have begun to tell stories through pictures and labeling.  They are using their temporary spelling and they are doing a great job!
 
We have focused on the following letters already.  They include:  t, b, f, n, m, i, u. c, o, a, g, d, and s.  Some of the activities we continue to do each day to review and practice these letters include:
Drill sounds focusing on letter- keyword-sound
Sky writing/ letter formation
Finding letters using magnetic letters and board
Wipe-off boards for letter formation
 
We will continue with the above letters and add the following throughout the month:  e, r, p, j, l, h, and k.
 
Each day we have a Shared Reading time where we read the poem or the book of the week.  The children are doing a great job reading along.  Some skills we continue to focus on include:
Making predictions
Making a concept web
Using picture clues
Retelling or sequencing
Using our reading finger
 
We have added words to our word wall.  Please keep looking for the following sight words when you are reading with your child: me, go, I, am, my, the, can, a, and see..
 
We will be learning the difference between a letter and a word. We will be writing personal narratives and how to use a capital letter at the beginning of a sentence.
We will introduce what a non-fiction book is and compare and contrast fiction and non-fiction books.
 
Science:
We have begun our unit on the how the weather affects us. We will be investigating and creating experiments on how the weather affects us. .
 
Social Studies:
We still continue with Star Student of the Day.  We are using the star student of the day to learn what a personal narrative is and how we write a personal narrative. This month we will begin to focus on our families and learn about communities.
 
Math:
We continue to focus on the formation and value of the numbers 1-10.
We will begin our unit on identifying and describing 2-D and 3-D shapes.
