Kindergarten ~ December 2017 Newsletter
We hope all our K-families enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving. December is already here and with it comes a number of relevant topics, which we will work on with our kindergartners.
We would like to wish you and your family happiness for the holidays and all the best for the coming New Year.
ELA: We will be focusing on the last few letters of the alphabet in Fundations to wrap up Unit 1. In reading, we will continue working on syllables and rhyming, in addition to starting our unit on the components of fiction and non-fiction. We will focus on learning informative writing by writing about facts we know.
Math: This month, we will be working on identifying and describing two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. The students will be able to identify and compare two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. They will also learn how to describe and compare objects by length, height, and weight.
Social Studies: With the fast approach of winter and the related festivities, we will learn a little about the traditions that make the winter season special, without discussing any religious aspects.
Science: We will begin Unit 2 focusing on pushes and pulls, where we will be exploring how objects will be affected when a force is applied.
