Kindergarten Newsletter

            Our letter of the week this week was V and over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase V as well as the sound that the letter V makes.  We also reviewed our word wall words and added three new words: what, was and said.  Our letter of the week next week will be Y and we will continue working on all of our word wall words so far. 

             This week we also continued working on our measurement unit.  By the end of this unit, your child should be able to compare the lengths of two objects, order three objects according to length in nonstandard units (such as paperclips, cubes, dominoes, etc.).  They should also be able to compare the weights of two objects, identify which of three objects is heaviest and lightest to order them by weight, and understand the use of a balance scale.  We will continue working on our measurement unit next week.

            Our social studies topic for this week was “Celebrating America.”  We discussed the ways that American symbols, holidays, and patriotic activities reflect the shared values, principles and beliefs of Americans.  Our social studies topic for next week will be consumers and producers.  We will discuss the difference between consumers and producers and between goods and services.  We will also discuss what needs and wants are and how people get the things that they need and want. 

               Our science topic for this week was energy.  We explored how matter and energy interact.  We also discussed how heat can be produced in different ways and that all living things need energy that comes from food.  Our science topic for next week will be “move it.”  We will discuss how things move (in a straight line, back and forth, fast, slowly, etc.).  We will also discuss how pushing or pulling an object can change how they move.
