Kindergarten Newsletter

             This week we focused on the story, “Dig, Dig, Digging,” by Margaret Mayo.  We discussed the comprehension skill of classifying and categorizing items.  This week we also started working on the letter A.  Over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase A as well as the sounds that the letter A makes.  Our letter of the week next week will be the letter S and we will continue working on our word wall words. 

            This week we also continued our unit in mathematics dealing with numbers 0-6.  By the end of this unit, your child should be able to model, count, draw, write, and read numbers 0 through 6.  We will continue working on our numbers 0-6 next week.    

            Our science topic for next week will be our Earth.  We will identify rocks, soil and water as the basic materials that make up Earth.    

            Our social studies topic for this week was responsibility at home as well as at school.  We learned that a responsibility is a duty to do or not to do something.  We also discussed examples of responsibility and privacy.  Our social studies topic for next week will be Time.  We will discuss calendar time (e.g., days, weeks, months).  We will also learn some words and phrases related to chronology and time (e.g., past, present, future).
