Kindergarten Newsletter

            This week we focused on the story, “Miss Bindergarten Takes a Field Trip with Kindergarten” by Joseph Slate. We talked about the setting of the story as well as the sequence of events (what happened first, next and last).  This week we also started working on the letter M.  Over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase M as well as the sound that the letter M makes.  Our letter of the week next week will be the letter T and we will continue working on our word wall words. 

            This week we also continued our patterns unit.  By the end of the patterns unit your child should be able to recognize, describe, and extend patterns by recognizing similarities and differences.  We will finish this unit early next week and begin a new unit in mathematics dealing with numbers 0-5.  By the end of this unit, your child should be able to model, count, draw, write and read numbers 0 through 5. 

            Our science topic for this week was the world of science and we discussed different tools such as magnifying glasses, telescopes, and scales that help us learn more about the world around us.  Our science topic for next week will be science safety and we will learn more about the importance of safety in the science lab.  We will also discuss some safety equipment and learn some basic rules for staying safe when doing investigations and making observations. 

            Our social studies topic for this week was “Where are you?” and we discussed position words such as above, far, near, and below as well as locations of things by using a map or globe.  Our social studies topic for next week will be following rules.  We will discuss what it means to be a good citizen and show respect by following the rules and why there are consequences for not following the rules.
