• August- Kinder Update

    Posted by Brianna Most on 8/19/2018 10:00:00 PM

    We are having a blast in Kindergarten! The kiddos are adjusting wonderfully, and we are getting used to our procedures and routines.


    Learning Focus: 

    • We will be focusing on one letter a day and the sound it makes. We are beginning to blend the sounds to read words. We are learning to point and track our reading. We have learned our first couple of sight words “I, am, the, little”.
    • For math we are beginning our unit on shapes. We will be learning about 2D and 3D shapes. The kiddos will be describing, identifying, naming, and comparing 2D and 3D shapes.
    • We are beginning penmanship and the importance of putting our letters on the right lines with the correct strokes of the pencil. We will begin learning to write in our journals this month.
    • We have discussed characters and are identifying who the main character is in a story.
    • For Core Knowledge, we are in our unit, “Nursery Rhymes and Fables”. We are reading different nursery rhymes and fables, learning what they are, and doing lots of activities. We are reading the rhymes, acting them out, learning new vocabulary, and participating in hands on activities and crafts.

    book We are looking forward to a wonderful year in kindergarten! We will have our first kinder event toward the end of August. 

    Please save one shoebox for your child. We will decorate them at school, and it will become your child's book box at home to collect all their books from school in all year. We are excited to learn all about reading and value reading both at school and at home! More information will come home the first week of school! :)
