Kindergarten ~ October 2017 Newsletter
ELA: We are off to a great start with our Fundations program. The activities teach the foundational skills of reading and writing to multiple learning styles (auditory, visual and kinesthetic). We will also continue to work on building good habits as readers and writers.
Math: In math we’ve been working on classifying objects and how to sort by size, shape and count (how many). We will also begin numbers to 10. Our daily calendar activities are a fun part of our math curriculum as well.
Social Studies: We are getting to know each other as part of Unit 1of our ELA and social studies curriculums. In addition, we will be talking about Columbus Day and fire safety.
Science: In science, we have discussed what a scientist is and how to be safe during our lessons. We will soon begin our unit on weather.
