This week in Kindergarten…
English Language Arts
We will read the story “Mayday Mayday.” It is an informational text about emergency response teams on the ocean! We will be discussing cause and effect. We will also be reading with words having the ending sound /ks/ spelled Xx.

Mathematics
We are transitioning to “Step Up to First Grade” – a three week overview of basic first grade skills and Kindergarten review. At the close of this unit, we will be conducting diagnostic tests to identify any areas of weakness before moving into a bit of time and money!

Science
Over the next few weeks, students will be learning about various life cycles. This week, we will be learning about the Plant Life Cycle.
After this week, we will be starting our Spring Break project. For this project, we STILL need potting mix/soil, and clear 5oz plastic cups (the short and wide ones). If you are able to donate any of these items, please contact your scholar’s teacher! (Much thanks in advance!)

High Frequency Words
Here are our sight words we have learned so far. Remember to practice reading and writing these words regularly! (When reading at home, if you see these words, have your child point it out!) All of the words we will learn this year are available on our grade level website under “Sight Words.”

I, am, little, to, a, have, is, the, we, my, like, he, for, me, with, she, see, look, they, you, of, are, that, do, one, two, three, four, five, here, go, from, yellow, blue, green

REMINDERS
– Homework is due on FRIDAY each week. Remember to look for their new homework packet on Fridays. Homework that is not submitted by the due date will be given a ZERO.
– Please read regularly! Remember that just 20 minutes a day can boost your child’s reading levels! Reading logs are due at the end of the month and will be given a zero if blank or missing from your child’s folder.
– Please remember to send an extra pair of uniform clothes to keep in your child’s cubbie at school in the event of accidents or spills.
