Weekly News

This week we read lots of books about Autumn. We talked about the changes that happen at this time of year. In science lab on Thursday, the children compared and contrasted the four seasons! The concept of changing seasons can be very abstract for kindergarteners! I encourage you all to keep discussing the changes and attributes of the four seasons during the coming months!

 

Our author of the month, Todd Parr, has continued to be a favorite with the children! The students did a direct draw of one of his favorite characters - Otto! Next month we will read books by the creator of Clifford the Big Red Dog, Norman Bridwell.

 

In math we are focusing on subitizing with the numbers 4, 5 and 6. We used two-colored beans to break the numbers into parts. We also used unifix cubes to create the numbers using two different colors. We also continued with our work with the “teen “numbers. We are having daily discussions on numbers; how you see a number, how you found an answer, listening to others thinking strategies, and discovering that through mistakes you learn! All of these practices help to foster a “Growth Mindset” in our emerging kindergarten mathematicians. 

 

 

Please look in your child’s Friday bag, there is a very important holiday homework project for you and your child to create together! Please have the finished Family Traditions homework completed by next Friday.

 

We finished our first book of sight-words this week! Please continue to practice these important words with your child! We will begin book two next week!

 

Thanks for the continued help each week! – Kathy Miller

I believe that a good parent-teacher relationship is necessary for maximum school success. Throughout the year I will communicate with you through notes, telephone calls, weekly newsletters, emails and parent teacher conferences. I encourage you to contact me if you have any questions or concerns at any time. The best way is through my school email.
