Kindergarten News ~ January, 10, 2020
Happy New Year and Welcome Back! We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, a happy new year and a relaxing couple of weeks spent with family and friends! As we kick off the new year, we will be starting our day with a new type of “morning work” ~ yoga for kids! AS the students enter the classroom, they will unpack and join in with yoga for kids that will be projected on the screen. This is a great way to get settled in the classroom and get ready to learn!
Gym Class will be on Wednesday and Friday next week! Don’t forget to sign up to volunteer with roller skating if you can! Thank you to all of the parents who came this week!
Here’s what we worked on this week:
Language Arts; We read the story “See How We Grow” and discussed how children grow and change. We learned about cause and effect and the letters D & K. We reviewed our sight words and learned 2 new ones: see & look. Next week we will begin having the children write their first and last names on some papers! We practiced writing first and last names this week using an upper-case letter for only the first letter!
Math: We have been composing and decomposing numbers to 10. We are still working on forming our numerals correctly!
Religion: We learned that Jesus was a child, just like us and he grew up in a family!
Independent Center: The theme this week was Snowmen! We read “snowmen at Night” and discussed what we think snowmen might do if they actually came to life in the night!
In other news…
- If your child would still like to bring a helmet for roller skating, they may still do so! Helmets will be kept in the classroom until the end of January when skating is over.
- Next Friday is school Spirit and Special lunch day! Wear QAS spirit wear and bring a drink for lunch!
- Don’t forget to do your penguin project! These were sent home in the Red Folder on Wednesday! Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions!
