Hello Families =)
It has been awhile since I have been able to update on here. I apologize that the hustle and bustle of December got the best of me. Happy New Year to you all!
The kids really impressed me this week with their awesome behavior and readiness to get back into the swing of things in school! They are such a great group of kids!
This week we worked on putting together our book bags. It takes a lot of time to make sure each child has 5-7 just right readers, but from now, on it will be much easier as they simply move up to the next level each week.
In writing, we began learning about How To writing. Before the break, we finished up writing Narratives, and they are so happy to be writing about something new. How To writing is fun because they get to be teachers informing us how to execute something. For example, today they wrote about how they get ready for school.
For social studies this week, we focused on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. We watched some short video clips, read books, and had some good conversations.
In math, we are continuing to work on our shapes module. We will be finishing it next week.
For our STEAM activities this week, we had to focus on modeling for the students the right way to work as a team. We want everyone to be included and benefit from our STEAM days.
I start giving more homework in Kindergarten after Christmas break. We will begin with the book bags on Tuesday. After the kids get used to the routines and expectations that are included with them, I will begin sending home math homework. Finally, around the end of February, I will start sending home spelling word practice for our weekly spelling tests.
The second half of Kindergarten moves quickly. If you ever feel overwhelmed or have questions or concerns about what I am sending home, please contact me. I am always here for you all.
I hope you enjoy your 3 day weekend!
