NEWS OF THE WEEK—May 20-24

POPCORN WORDS:  A week of review!

OUR AMERICAN SYMBOLS:  The symbols that were studied this week were:  The Bald Eagle, The Liberty Bell and the American Flag.  We learned that Bald Eagles have sharp talons, they build their nests high in trees near water and they eat fish.

The Liberty Bell cracked the first time it was rung, it is made from copper and tin and it hangs from a wooden yoke.

The American Flag has 50 stars and 13 stripes, it has many names like “Old Glory” and it is red, white and blue.

We talked about what it means to be patriotic and what we do to show patriotism. Examples were wear red, white and blue, hang a flag, say thank you to veterans, say the pledge.  At the start of each day, the kinders are learning to recite the Pledge of Allegiance by standing tall, still and straight.  They have learned what those very special words really mean and what sacrifices the men and women of our country made for our freedom. We THANK them so much!!! We practiced identifying ending sounds by sorting pictures, We made & read  books and made patriotic hats. It was fun to learn how to do a crossword puzzle and word search too. Be sure to have your kinders teach you some cool and interesting facts about ALL of the American symbols we have studied.

It was fun to see the kinders dressed in red, white and blue clothing, Thank you for participating!  The kinders were EXCITED (to say the least) to learn that I brought “dessert” for them to eat after lunch…..RED, WHITE  and BLUE POPSICLES!

MATH:  The kinders took their LAST unit #5 math test.  They did an AWESOME, FABULOUS, WONDERFUL job!  They worked hard showing what math skills they learned.  These tests arrived home this week.  I know that you are as proud of your kinder as I am!  We spent the other days “dipping our toes” into first grade math.  The kinders were very excited to use their own mini clocks to show the time by the hour.  

WRITING WORKSHOP:  Each day the kinders met with a group that had the same opinion on a topic, talked about the reasons for their opinion and then wrote about it.  These topics were saying why we like Georgetown school, what holiday we like best and which sport we enjoy playing. Our opinion writing ended by having the kinders  write their ON DEMAND piece about their favorite restaurant. This is when they do all of their writing independently, without teacher assistance. The kinders did an AMAZING JOB!  I am so very proud of them. I am in the process of grading them and will send home the writings home soon.

COUNTDOWN TO SUMMER:  Can you believe it? Ten more days of kindergarten!  Oh my! 🙂 The countdown to summer has officially begun in our classroom.  Each day we will open an envelope to see what fun activity is scheduled.  Today the first activity was…..EXTRA RECESS!!

BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS:  We enjoyed giving the kinders who have “summer birthdays” (June, July, August) an early celebration.  Thank you for all of the birthday treats.

 Happy early Birthday Brooks!

 Happy early Birthday Aria!

 Happy early Birthday Breslyn!

 Happy early Birthday Elliot!

NEWS OF THE WEEK—May 13-17

OUR AMERICAN SYMBOLS:  Hooray for the U.S.A! This week the kinders began to learn about some of our most popular American symbols.

First, we learned what a symbol is (it is a picture that stands for something). Next, we practiced identifying some common symbols for popular spots such as Dairy Queen, Target, Jet’s Pizza, etc.  Then we looked at some American symbols like The White House, The Capital, President Trump, Air Force One, etc.

The Statue of Liberty and The White House were the first two symbols we studied.  After reading non-fiction books and watching an informational video about each symbol, the kinders labeled parts of each symbol and choose 1 interesting fact to write on their paper. It was fun to make a craft relating to the symbols too.

Some fun facts we learned about the Statue of Liberty were it was a gift from France, it is made from copper, she is called “The Lady of Liberty”, she holds a torch in one hand and a table in the other.

  

It was fun to learn that The White House is big and white! You need 570 gallons of paint to paint the outside.  It has 132 rooms, 35 bathrooms 3 elevators, a swimming pool, movie theatre, a bowling alley and some rooms are named after colors like The Red Room, The Blue Room.

  

WRITING:  More topics were introduced, more opinions were given, more reasons were written and more writings were shared with friends this week.  These topics included preferring to eat home lunch or hot lunch, playing at the beach or at the pool; eating ice cream in a bowl or a cone; deciding which special class (art, STEAM, gym or music) they like best.  I am very proud of them. We will write a few more opinion writings as a whole group before ending the week with the kinders writing their ON DEMAND Opinion writing next week.  This is when the kinders use all of the strategies they have learned and write without teacher assistance.  I know that they will do awesome job!

MATH:  The kinders showed tens and extra ones for teen and twenty numbers and compared numbers using terms Greater than, Less than and Equal.  They compared objects using math terms such as longer than, shorter, heavier than, lighter than.  Friday math games had an American symbols theme and consisted of adding tens and extra ones for teen numbers, putting numbers in correct order, solving subtraction problems, counting by 10’s to 100 and sorting 3D shapes.

 

The kinders will be reviewing various math skills the first part of the week and taking their LAST math test…Unit #5 towards the end of the week. Please encourage your kinder to do their best.  The test will cover addition & subtraction problems; comparing numbers using terms shorter, longer, heavier, lighter; showing tens & extra ones for teen numbers; and  more.

READING:  We are AVID Readers and we LOVE to read.  We are working on staying focused on reading for 115-18 minutes.  What an accomplishment as the kinders move into first grade. It was SO much fun reading each other’s clothing of places in Michigan such as Mackinac, Central Michigan, Michigan State, John Ball Zoo and of course…Hudsonville.  We also read some books written by Michigan authors. Thank you for helping your kinder participate.  Next week we will celebrate AMERICA! by coming to school wearing red, white and blue clothes.

MYSTERY READER: Wednesday Sidney was glad to see her mom in the doorway.  She read Dream I’ll Be.  A sweet story reminding the kinders that they can be whatever they want to be when they grow up.

Friday it was Jacob’s turn to jump up and welcome his mom and younger brother, Austin into the room.  She read Bunny Cakes, a Max and Ruby story by Rosemary Wells.  We like Max and Ruby stories!  Thank you so much for stopping by.  We love your visits.

TAKE HOME BOOKS: Thursday was our last day of reading our TAKE HOME books. I can’t believe it that we are finished. Thank you so much to everyone for reading each night at home with your kinders! They have become such good readers! Thank you so much to all of the parents and grandparents who came to listen to our readers! I couldn’t have done it without you!!! 

SPLIT LIT:  During our time this week, the kinders wrote popcorn words, read sentences and matched them with pictures, identified vowel sounds, worked with rhyming words, read books and sorted H brother (ch, sh, th) pictures.

OUR 5TH GRADE BUDDIES:  In preparation for our buddies going on their “sleep over field trip” (actual term is 5th grade camp) on Thursday and Friday, the kinders made them a card.  They also gave them a fun bag filled with a mini game booklet, a marker, starbursts, fruit snacks and a rice krispy treat because “we hope they had “bursts” of fun at camp.”  Another way to spread random acts of kindness.  Our buddies were surprised!  Yeah!

  

POPCORN WORDS:    TODAY    PLAY     AWAY      UP    Thank you so much for working with your kinder to learn their sight words.  They know soooo many words!  Oh my goodness!  I am so proud of them!

WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK—May 14-18

This is a long posting so please read to the end.  We were busy this week!

OUR AMERICAN SYMBOLS:  Hooray for the U.S.A! This week the kinders began to learn about some of our most popular American symbols. Reading a Let’s Find Out newspaper about American Symbols was informative too.

   

First, we learned what a symbol is (it is a picture that stands for something). Next, we practiced identifying some common symbols for popular spots such as Dairy Queen, Target, Jet’s Pizza, etc.

The Statue of Liberty and The White House were the first two symbols studied.  After reading non-fiction books and watching an informational video about each symbol, the kinders did some informational writing by choosing 3 facts to write on their paper. It was fun to make a craft relating to the symbols too.

Some fun facts we learned about the Statue of Liberty were it was a gift from France, it is made from copper, she is called “The Lady of Liberty”, she holds a torch in one hand and a table in the other.  We did an experiment to see if we could turn copper pennies green like the Statue of Liberty did.  We put pennies in a bowl of vinegar and salt for 10 minutes then took them out to dry.  Can you see the green on them?  How cool!

   

   

We are keeping all of our work inside our American Symbols story pockets. The story pockets will come home next week after we learn about more American symbols.  

WRITER’S WORKSHOP: The kinders wrote their opinion about which sport they like to play (football, basketball, baseball, soccer), what kind of pet they would like (dog, cat, hamster, fish, lizzard), and stating why Georgetown is awesome.  The kinders always enjoy sharing their writings with their friends too.

       

At the end of the week, they wrote their ON DEMAND on the topic of their favorite restaurant. This is when they do all of their writing independently, without teacher assistance. The kinders did an AMAZING JOB!  I am so very proud of them. I am in the process of grading them and will send home the writings home soon.

We were invited to Mrs. VanKovering’s first grade to listen to her students read their realistic fiction narrative writing pieces.  It was good for the kinders to see what they will be writing next year.  Thank you for inviting us.  We really enjoyed coming!

                

MATH:  After reviewing various math skills, the kinders used their individual office spaces to take their last math test, Unit #5.  They are becoming very good mathematicians solving addition and subtraction problems, comparing items using terms longer, shorter, taller and showing teen numbers as tens and extra ones.  What a good job they have done!!! 🙂  Their tests will be coming home soon.

    

READER’S WORKSHOP:  We are Readers and we LOVE to read.  We are working on staying focused on reading for 18-20 minutes.  What an accomplishment as the kinders move into first grade.  Friday was “the best” according to the kinders as they eagerly read with their flashlights and tried to spotlight popcorn words.  Thank you for helping to supply your kinder with a flashlight.
