Thank you to all the parents that completed the promotion survey. Based on the responses, Kindergarten students are being asked to wear all White Dresses (Girls) or White Button down long sleeve shirts with Khaki Pants (boys). The theme will be “Oh, to First Grade We Will Go.”
As a reminder, the promotion will be held in the cafeteria on Wednesday, June 7 from 8:30-10:00am. Tickets will be sent home on Monday, June 5 based on the survey responses. Remember, tickets should include siblings that are in the building. This will act as their pass to leave class. If you need to make changes to your ticket count, please contact Ms. Santiago at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate.
This week in Kindergarten…
English Language Arts
We will read the story “On the Move.” It is about how to get to different places around the world! This is an informational text where students will be looking at actual transportation in different parts of the world. We will also be reading words having the beginning /v/ and /w/.
We are learning about money! We will identify different coins and their worth. Additionally, we will be counting money and closing out with determining if we have enough money to make purchases!
What you can do at home: take out your change and encourage your scholar to identify the coins and even try counting how much money there is! (Utilize their knowledge of counting by 5’s and 10’s for nickels and dimes.)
We will continue observing the life cycle of a butterfly in real time! Students will watch as our classroom caterpillars go through the metamorphosis stages to become a butterfly.
Additionally, our visitors have arrived! Surprise! They are baby chicks and eggs! We will be observing the changes of both the egg and the baby chicks over the next month, until the egg hatches.
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, what, said, was, where, come
– Homework is due on FRIDAY each week. Remember to bring sight word journals every Friday. 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.
