Reading: I am very proud of the students for the progress they have made in reading. On the most recent assessments, all of the students made gains on their letters and sounds and word lists! Way to go, kinders!!!
Math: The students are doing a great job learning how to solve simple addition facts. I call these worksheets “math facts” pages. The kinders are using strategies like a number line and pictures above the numbers to help them solve the problems. It is great to see the students use the strategy that works best for them!
Religion: In religion, we will learn more about Jesus’ teachings through parables or stories. This week, we will learn about the Prodigal Son. On Wednesday, the kinder class will be leading Morning Prayer!
Writing: The students are making great progress in their writing journals. It is awesome to see the kiddos excited about being writers! Last week, I taught the students the “three finger rule”, i.e., begin with a capital, use spaces between words, and end with punctuation. This week, we will apply the things we have learned and use “I see” statements.
Art Smarts: The students will have Art Smarts on Tuesday afternoon! They are very excited about it!
Social Studies: This week, we will compare and contrast pilgrim children to children today. Look for our writing projects in the hallway soon.
