Kindergarten Newsletter
This week we focused on the story, “Goldilocks and the Three Bears,” by Valeri Gorbachev, and in particular, the comprehension skill of the characters and setting of the story.  Our letter of the week this week was W and over the course of this week, we practiced the proper way to make an uppercase and lowercase W, as well as the sound that the letter W makes.  Next week we will review our letters thus far as well as continue to review our word wall words. 
This week we also finished our unit in mathematics dealing with geometry.  By now, your child should be able to identify and sort basic plane shapes (circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles) and basic solid shapes (cubes, spheres, rectangular prisms, cylinders, and cones) as well as recognize the relationship between the two.  Next week we will begin a new unit in math dealing with time.  
Our social studies and science topic for this week was Presidents’ Day.  We discussed what the presidents job entails, who our current president is, as well as two famous past presidents (George Washington and Abraham Lincoln).  We will continue discussing Presidents’ Day next week.
