NEWS—Oct. 28-Nov 1

POPCORN WORDS:   IN   ALL   It was fun to see that we could make some new words by adding different letters to ALL and IN.   Our daily message does not just contain our weekly words but also includes popcorn words we have already learned. That makes reading the daily message so fun!  Our shared reading poem and book allowed us to read familiar popcorn words.  

COLOR WORD:     BROWN    The kinders had fun reading brown bear books like Bear feels scared, Bear Can’t Sleep and Very Hairy Bear 

We also read Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? .  We continued to practice our storytelling skills as we retold (and sang) the story many times this week.  Enjoy having your kinder practice their skills at home when they retell the story for you using their storytelling strip.  We made a brown bear hat while wearing brown. Thank you for helping your kinder participate in our color days by wearing particular colors.  The kinders (and I) looked forward to these fun days. The kinders enjoyed eating teddy grahams for the surprise brown snack.

 

MATH: We continued to tell math stories (even using real candy corn pieces) to solve the answers to the math stories. For example:  3 teddy bears came and sat at a table.  2 more teddy bears joined them.  How many teddy bears are at the table?”  3+2=5   We practiced writing tricky numbers 8 & 9 too. Friday math games were FALLING LEAVES (matching the group of dots to the number) and MISSING PUMPKINS (writing numbers & ID numbers in 1-10 order). 

SCIENCE:  Our weekly newspaper helped us learn about the seasons of a tree.

WRITING: We continued with our Show and Tell Unit.  At the beginning of the week the kinders wrote a pattern book about a leaf. We closely observed our individual leaves, noticing the shape and color.   We used the pattern, “This is a…”.  to write our pages about the stem, vein, color. I am so proud of how far the kinders have come in writing!  We start a new unit next week of writing personal narratives! 

READING WORKSHOP:  It was all about learning how to increase and  our stamina.  We started the week by reading quietly, staying in our own spot, staying on task for 5 minutes.  We increased to 7 min 20 seconds.  Way to go kinders!  Next week we start learning about Super Powers and how they can help us become better readers.

CHOICES: Our favorite time of the day to learn and put into practice important social skills such as sharing, taking turns, being creative and working together.

HANDWRITING:  We learned how “clockwise letters” (h,r,n,m,b) are written. It was so fun using gelboards to write them too. Keep up practicing at home….it is helping!

MYSTERY READERS:  Wednesday afternoon Jude and Kieran were so happy to see their aunt (and mom) walk in our room.  Their aunt was visiting their family all the way from Ireland.  What a special treat.  She read the boys favorite story…A Book With No Pictures.  What a funny, silly story!

Friday morning Kylie was the one to jump up and hug her mom.  She read us Desert Night, Desert Day because Kylie has relatives who live by the desert.  What a sweet story introducing us to animals who live in the desert.  She even brought their squishy catus to go along with the story.

REMINDERS

SNACKS:  Please remember to send in 2 snacks for your Kindergartner each day.  I do have graham crackers if it is forgotten.  Donations of graham crackers are ALWAYS welcome!!  Our supply is going fast! 🙂

WINTER GEAR:   Brrrr….our Michigan weather is changing quickly.   Please be sure to gather up those warmer coats, mittens, boots, hats and snow pants.  When it snows, this gear is mandatory to play outside.  When the snow arrives we do go outside and play!   However, if the temperature or wind chill get below freezing we do opt to stay inside. If anyone needs any help with getting these winter items PLEASE let me know.  Also, if your kinder needs new boots this season, please, please purchase boots with velcro closings NOT with tie up laces.  Keep in mind that the goal for all kinders to get their winter gear on and off independently. Label, Label, Label your kinder’s winter gear.  It will make it easier for me to know which black snow pants belong to your kinder.

HEADPHONES:   Send in headphones for STEAM if not already done so.  Thank you to all who have already sent them into school.

CALENDARS:  Please refer to the November calendar that was sent home for events, birthdays, etc or view it at the top of the blog under CALENDARS AND SCHEDULES.  The November lunch menu is also available on the Food Service website.

NEWS—Oct. 21-25

POPCORN WORDS:     They were ‘popping’ up all the time this week in our daily messages and in books. We learned that sometimes “E” is quiet and tells other hard worker letters (vowels) to do a flip and say their letter name. We saw this happening in “like” and “here”.  Our shared reading poem “I like to play.” and book The Balloon included our popcorn words this week.

 

 

 

 

COLOR WORD:    ORANGE       We read many pumpkin books to celebrate the color orange.  It was a perfect week to do this as many of the kinders have visited pumpkin patches. The kinders did not guess my orange surprise snack this week—-Cheese-It crackers!  A tasty mini snack.

SCIENCE: Scientists observe and look closely at objects. Scientists also label things. We were scientists in the classroom this week. We read a non-fiction book to gather information about how pumpkins grow.  Making our own “flow map” to show the life cycle of a pumpkin and singing a song to help us remember was fun.  We read a big book and newspaper that reinforced our learning about pumpkins.  

READER’S WORKSHOP:  With our reading partners, we worked hard to find places in our storybooks that were our “favorite part”, “Wow!, that’s cool”, “I didn’t know that?” and “That’s happened to me!” Storybooks are filled with these parts to make the story exciting! We are all learning!  Just like when we were little we didn’t walk right away, we had to crawl, scoot, hold onto things and then we could walk, jog and then run!  Reading is like that too.  We have to learn some sounds, put those sounds together and then use all of our reading tools to practice being a reader. Reading by ourselves or with our partners help us grow as readers!

 

 

 

 

HANDWRITING:  We continued to learned how to properly write more “counter clockwise” lower case letters of  e,s,o,u  A few of these letters are tricky so keep practicing at home.  It is helping!

WRITING WORKSHOP:  The kinders learned that writers also write books with a pattern.  After investigating a real pumpkin, we wrote a book about the parts of the pumpkin using the pattern “I see the _______.” (stem, ribs, rind,  orange pumpkin) . We also wrote a book about ourselves after listening to the song Mat Man.  This song reminds us to include details in drawing a person. This book used the pattern of “Here is my ______.” (head, body, hair, friend).

LITERACY: The kinders did activities to strengthen their skills in letter ID, letter sounds, hearing syllables in words, reading popcorn words and writing their name. I am SO excited about the progress I am noticing.  Thank you for working and supporting your kinder at home.  It is making a BIG difference!

MATH:   We did a little bit of everything in math this week.  We worked on telling math stories, writing numbers in correct order, noticing 5 groups and extra ones in numbers 6-10 and comparing numbers by using equal (= )and not equal (= with / through) symbols.  It was a busy week of learning!

Friday math games consisted of  HOW MANY PUMPKINS SEEDS? (counting groups of objects 1-10 using fine motor skills), RACE TO FILL THE PUMPKINS (or buckets)(counting objects), PUMPKINS, PUMPKINS (1-10 number order) and BUGS CAUGHT IN THE SPIDER WEB (identifying numbers 1-6). The kinders really look forward to Friday math games that reinforce concepts learned during the week. 

BUDDY TIME:  We ended our day on Friday with spending some time with our buddies.  First we read Spookley the Square Pumpkin together. A sweet story about looking at the inside of a person and not judging them by how they look on the outside. Then the buddies and the kinders created their own Spookley square pumpkins.  It is always fun when we get together.

MYSTERY READER: It was Ryleigh’s turn to be surprised when her grandma walked into the room Wednesday afternoon.  She read Duck, Duck, Moose.  A fun, giggly book about baby ducks thinking a moose is their mother.  She even surprised us by giving us mini rubber ducks.  Thank you so much!!

Friday Katelyn’s mom read us Pig the Pug because they have a dog that looks alike like Pig.  It was a good story to remind us it is more fun to share.  Thank you for coming!

Parent/Teacher Conferences: These will be on Nov. 18 and Nov. 20 from 4:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m.  Conference times will be sent home on Monday.

Fall Party Update: Our Fall Party will be on Thursday, Oct. 31 at 2:00 p.m.  The 8 parent volunteers have been contacted along with the parents donating supplies.  Thank you for your understanding if you are not able to come to this party.  I have started a list of parents that were unable to attend this party but would like to attend our other 2 parties. This will be rotating so that all will get an opportunity to attend a party.

NEWS—Oct. 14-18

Our busy week of learning in kindergarten…..

COLOR WORDSBLACK    WHITE       We read Harry the Dirty Dog, Harry and the Neighbor, Harry goes to the sea, Please, Mr. Panda and I’ll wait Mr. Panda as our color theme books.  We also watched a non-fiction video about panda bears. We all agreed they are cute black and white bears so it was obvious that we needed to make panda bears.  It was fun to use a fork as our paint brush. Thanks for participating by wearing black and white! 🙂 We also made our weekly color flip book, went on a I Spy hunt for black & white pictures and drew a picture of Harry the Dirty Dog.  Our surprise black & white snack this week was OREO cookies.  Not very healthy, I know, but very tasty. 

  

HANDWRITING:  We learned about the three different handwriting lines and how some letters are small, some are tall, and some fall below the lines.  Remembering to always start at the top is tricky so extra reminders at home is helpful. We started practicing the proper formation of Counter Clockwise letters (f,c,a,d).  We will finish the rest of these letters next week.

POPCORN WORDS:   YES   NO  STOP  GO We wrote these words in our journals, found/wrote them in our popcorn paper books, used magnets to create new words by changing the beginning sound (go, no, so, OR stop, mop, top, hop) and in our shared reading poem.  

READING:  As readers, we learned another strategy to use when we get stuck on unknown words.  Tryin’ Lion is a cute beanie baby that tells us to “reread and never give up.”  He joins Eagle Eye ( look closely at the words and picture) and Stretchy Snake (stretch out sounds in words) as useful reading strategies.   Readers also notice that important words have labels to make reading them easier.  We practiced this by labeling important words in two emergent books. The kinders were given a sticky note to use when they located a character showing a feelings.  A good review from last week’s lessons.

MATH: This week the kinders found out that they can tell math stories and solve the answers to their math stories. For example:  3 teddy bears came and sat at a table.  2 more teddy bears joined them.  How many teddy bears are at the table?”  3+2=5  In addition, they practiced drawing pictures of math stories on whiteboards. They used their math toolboxes to show groups of 5 within numbers (5+1=6) and to compare numbers by using a 5 strip and extra one tiles.  They drew groups of 5 and extra ones, wrote number 6 and counted groups of objects inside their workbooks.

WRITING WORKSHOP: During our writing time we learned that writers stretch out sounds in words, the words match the pictures, they talk and share with their partners. We worked together to create another Show and Tell book.  This time it was about our Homes.  The kinders shared information about where they eat, where they sleep and where they like to play with their writing partners before actual drawing and writing each day.  They are doing a fabulous job drawing detailed pictures, labeling parts of their drawings and trying their best to write a matching sentence such as “I eat at the table. I sleep in my bed. I play in the playroom.” (We try to use as many popcorn words as possible when we write together!)  On Friday, we met with Mrs. Tindall’s class to read our books together and celebrate being awesome writers!

LITERACY:  This week the kinders worked as a whole group with Mrs. Bynum while I reassessed the kinders are their letters/sounds and rhyming words.  We have been working hard in mastering these skills during Split Lit and in small groups.  Their activities focused on sight words, rhyming words, distinguishing between letter b and letter d and listening for sounds in the beginning, middle and end of words.  Look for a note in your kinder’s folder informing you of your kinder’s progress in the coming weeks.  Our shared reading book was filled with rhyming words.

MYSTERY READER: On Wednesday afternoon, Kennedy was surprised…again.  This time it was her grandma who came to read a story to us.  She brought The Day the Crayons Talked because Kennedy LOVES to color. A fun story to hear especially since we are learning our colors words!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

BACKPACK SNACKS…THANK YOU SO MUCH for being conscientious about sending ONLY TWO healthy, NUT FREE snacks…one for the morning, one for the afternoon.  Our snack time is short but enough time to become refueled.

BLUE FOLDERS and BACKPACKS:  Please get in the habit of taking out your kinder’s blue folder each night and removing the papers, art work, etc.  Please place any notes back inside the folder.  That is the best place for me to find them.  Cleaning out your kinder’s backpack of extra things will make it less heavy and allow more room for their folder and lunch box.  Thank you!

NEWS—Oct. 7-11

Fall weather is here!  Please continue to send a warm coat or sweatshirt with your kinder.  The weather can quickly change so it is good to be prepared.  We go out for a break/recess in the morning, lunch and end of the day.

COLOR WORD:    PURPLE     Harold and the Purple Crayon was just one of many purple themed books we read.  It was a great book to inspire imagination.  The kinders used their imagination to draw their own purple crayon adventures.  We LOVED hearing an old favorite song of Mrs. Bohl, the song “One Eyed, One Horned Flying Purple People Eater”.  They really enjoyed making their own one eyed, one horned flying purple people eater monsters.  Here is the link to the “Purple People Eater” video we watched. They are decorating our room for a bit. After reading Purplicious, the kinders were curious if red and blue really would make purple. We couldn’t pass up the chance to be a scientist and try it out using red and blue paint. Amazing….it really DID make purple!!! 🙂  Once again, it was fun looking at the way the kinders chose to wear this week’s color purple.  We have a few more colors to learn.

 

HANDWRITING: We spent some time distinguishing between letters and numbers. We started learning the proper formation of lower case letters.  This week it was the “straight line” letters (l,t,i) These booklets were sent home.  Please refer to this booklet as your kinder continues to practice writing at home.  They are doing great but some upcoming letters are more difficult than others to form properly, so extra practice is always beneficial.  Writing with markers, chalk, bathroom crayons and even in shaving cream are some fun different ways to inspire your kinder.  

   

POPCORN WORDS:  ME   BE   WE   WILL   The kinders were excited to see that our popcorn words rhymed (at least 3 of them).  We found these words inside our daily message, we unscrambled the letters to spell them correctly and found them in books. Thank you for working with your kinder at home.

MATH:  We spent the first part of the week reviewing the math skills that we learned…writing, identifying and counting object for numbers 1-5, identifying and drawing shapes, completing dot to dot pictures.  On Wednesday we took our first math test using individual “office spaces” (a folder separating them from their neighbor) .  They settled in and did a GREAT job of working hard on answering all the questions.  These tests will be graded and given to you soon. I am amazed at how much each kinder has grown in their math skills and abilities!! Thank you for working and supporting them at home.  We started unit #2 by searching for groups of objects 1-10. Friday math games were about identifying shapes, exploring with pattern blocks, identifying numbers 1-6 and counting objects.

READING WORKSHOP: We used storybooks like Piggy and Elephant  to help us notice that characters have feelings.  Sometimes the characters even show strong feelings, as in the book Ilama llama mad at Mama. . When a reader forgets what the words say, they can look at the pictures to help them remember what the words are.  We practiced this together by using a favorite book, The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry and the Big Hungry Bear.

WRITING: The kinders learned that Show and Tell writing can be about important places.  Together we wrote a Show and Tell 3 page book about the library.  Writers and illustrators make decisions on what to draw and label.  The kinders worked hard to do this on each page.  We even tried to write a sentence about our pictures using some popcorn words.  Our Show and Tell book sounded like this:  We will hear a book. We will pick a book.  We will get a book.  The kinders are turning into fantastic writers!

LITERACY:  We finished ABC Boot Camp with letters Xx,Yy, Zz.  We will continue to review these letters, practice producing their sounds in small groups and in large group.  Our shared reading book for the week was Fall Leaves.  Reading this book together helps us in identifying parts of a book, noticing patterns, rhymes, popcorn words and more. It was pretty cool that our poem was about fall leaves too. It is becoming a favorite part of our morning.

MYSTERY READER: On Tuesday Ariya was thrilled to see her mom and her younger sister, Eden.  We enjoyed listening to Thelma the Unicorn.  Thelma learned that being yourself (a horse) is better than wanting to be something else…like a unicorn.  A great lesson for us to remember too.

On Wednesday Kennedy’s grandpa was our Mystery Reader.  He read Be Kind, Be Brave and Be You by Charles Schulz.  We love having grandparents stop by as much as parents.  

There are many open dates so if you are considering being a Mystery Reader, please sign up here  

FAMILY PUMPKIN PROJECT:  We have quite a few pumpkins that are disguised as a unicorn, princess, cat, snowman and more.  I totally forgot to take a picture…I will do that soon.  Thank you for participating. The pumpkins are fabulous!!!

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

BACKPACK SNACKS…THANK YOU SO MUCH for being conscientious about sending ONLY TWO healthy, NUT FREE snacks…one for the morning, one for the afternoon.  Our snack time is short but enough time to become refueled.

KOOL KINDERS:   The kinders are excited to be the Kool Kinder again.  We are now drawing out a stick with a kinder’s name on it to determine the next day’s Kool Kinder.  A yellow reminder note will come home the day prior. The kinders are bringing in a show and tell item from home.  After you choose the show and tell item, please talk with your kinder about what information they are going to share with the class.  We love to hear why they chose it, who gave it to them or where did they get it, etc. 

BLUE FOLDERS and BACKPACKS:  Please get in the habit of taking out your kinder’s blue folder each night and removing the papers, art work, etc.  Please place any notes back inside the folder.  That is the best place for me to find them.  Cleaning out your kinder’s backpack of extra things will make it less heavy and allow more room for their folder and lunch box.  Thank you!

NEWS—Sept. 16-20

Here is what your kinder did at school this week:

POPCORN WORDS:    THE      DOG       The kinders added another popcorn book  to their blue book boxes and highlighted this week’s words ;”the” and “dog”.  These words were “buttered” (colored with a yellow crayon) so that they popped off the pages as we read it.

COLOR WORD:        BLUE         We learned about different things that are blue,  practiced writing the word blue, made a blue book, wore blue clothes and made a blue craft of a favorite cat….Pete the Cat because “Kindergarten is a groovy place!” We also read many blue theme books like…Blueberry Mouse, The Little Blue Truck (a sweet, fun story about friends working together to help each other), Blueberries for Sal and Pout Pout Fish.  A few crafts may have come home relating to these fun books.  Of course Mrs. Bohl brought in a surprise blue snack….fresh blueberries this time!  Wearing blue was fun too!

 

READER’S WORKSHOP:  The kinders practiced rereading their books to try to learn more information. They practiced by noticing things in the pictures the first time through the book and then looked through it again, noticing more things.  Our private read time is up to 5 mintues!  Hooray for the kinders!

 MATH: The kinders used their math toolbox to practice addition and subtraction.  We talked about how it’s ok if some of us picked 3 red tiles or 2 blue tiles & 1 red tile to show the number 3.  It may look different but it is still showing the number that we are talking about….3. 

We practiced identifying circles by learning a song…. “A circle is like a button.  A circle is like a button.  Round and round it never stops.  A circle is like a button.” (sung to Farmer in the Dell).  The kinders worked as teams to sort shapes into two groups….circles and not circles.  They did a great job recognizing the differences in shapes.  

 

The kinders built towers to compare numbers 1-5 by using their math toolboxes.

LITERACY:  We continued our ABC Bootcamp by studying the letters Kk, Ll, Mm and Nn this week. We also split our class into 2 groups. One of the groups worked on identifying letters and producing their sounds and the other group practiced rhyming words.  We also were word detectives when we found our popcorn word “the” in the poem The Leaves.

WRITER’S WORKSHOP:  The kinders learned that when they try to draw a picture that is tricky, they can keep going by saying “I think I can.”  They used their whiteboards to draw pictures of doing gymnastic stunts.  They added many details and shared their drawings with the class.

Thank you so much!  If you would like to be one of our Mystery Readers, look on the sidebar under VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES to find “Mystery  Reader”.  Click on this link to sign up for a date that is convenient for you. There are many to choose from. We would love to have you read us a story!

BUCKET FILLER OR BUCKET DIPPER:  We read How Full is you Bucket? to help us distinguish between being a bucket filler or bucket dipper.  A bucket filler is kind, listens, walks in the hallway, is respectful, etc.  A bucket dipper hits, interrupts, does not let others play, uses toothpaste words, etc.  The kinders sorted pictures to solidify the differences.  All of us took a promise to be a bucket filler at school and at home.  We are all going to work hard to be bucket fillers!  

 

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

*OUTDOOR CLOTHING….Please continue to send a coat or sweatshirt with your child.  The weather can quickly change so it is good to be prepared.

*BACKPACK SNACK…THANK YOU SO MUCH for being conscientious about sending TWO healthy, NUT FREE snacks…one for the morning, one for the afternoon.  Many kinders are bringing multiple snacks.  Our snack time is short but enough time to become refueled.

LIBRARY:  We got to go to library each Wednesday and visit Mrs. VandenBurg. It is so much fun to go to library! Please remember to help your kinder return their library book every Wednesday so they can get a new one book!

KOOL KINDER:  Kinder completed an “All About Me and My Favorite Things” pages to share with their classmates.  These pages are being placed in a class book for all to view.  These pages will be given back to the kool kinders at the end of the school year.  Thank you for helping your kinder with these pages as they each get a turn to be the Kool Kinder!

*GYM DAYS..Please consider having your kinder keep a pair of socks either in their cubby or backpack to wear during gym days.  On these warm days, many kinders do not like to wear their gym shoes without socks when they come to school wear sandals or flip flops.

*LUNCH MONEY… When sending in lunch money, please place in a baggy or envelope and include your kinder’s first/last name and my name on it.  This will make it much easier when passing it on to the lunch staff.

*BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS…Happy Birthday to Emmie (9/17) and Jude and Kieran (9/20)  Thank you so much for ALL of the birthday wishes and small gifts that you bestowed on me.  I am honored and grateful to spend my days with your kinder.

We read Have you filled a Bucket today? and learned that we all have invisible buckets.  We can be bucket fillers by saying kind words, helping others without being asked, walking quietly in hallway, etc OR we can be bucket dippers by using mean words, not doing your best, etc.
