April 17th - 21st 2017

Please make sure to purchase your child’s ASB card a.s.a.p so they can participate in our field trip.  They cost $5.00 and can be purchased in the office.  ASB cards help us pay for the field trip. 

 

I will be doing our 3rd week progress monitoring next week! I am excited to see how far our kiddos have come this month!! Things I check each month until they’ve mastered it two months in a row are: upper case identification, lower case identification, letter sounds, sight words (starting with our word wall words and moving on), identification of numbers 0-20, and counting to 100.  These are all some of the kindergarten standards our kiddos must meet! 

 

-Upcoming Events

April 27th (Thursday): I will be out of the classroom (I will be at the school but unavailable most the day).

-What we’ve been learning- 

Classroom, playground, & cafeteria safety.  What it looks and sounds like.  We also took a look at ways we can help our earth with the 3 R’s: Recycle, Reuse, & Reduce. 

Letters:  Jj & Ww 

Words: here, go, from

Writing: We are going to continue to work on extending our writing from 1-2 sentences to 2-3.  We will be focusing on this for the next several weeks as this is a big transition and reviews other skills (upper case first letters, ending marks, sounding words out, etc.) while practicing the new skill of extending our thoughts and words. 

Math:  Simple subtraction

 

-What we will be working on-

Working nicely on all of our work.  As we begin to write more and more our penmanship has started to decrease.  We are going to be really focusing on making sure our writing is nice and neat no matter what we are working on. 

Letters: Xx

Words: Yellow, Blue, Green
