Weekly Message

Hello kinders!  Wow!  I saw him jump so high on his trampoline with his sister! We hope you have a wonderful week!  

Love,

Mrs. Bohl

Popcorn Words of the week:  him, jump

Math

Draw or use objects to show partners of a number (2 circles + 3 triangles = 5 shapes).

Find missing partners (If I had 5 crayons and I wanted 8 all together what would be my missing partner?  3.  For example:  5 + __ = 8).

Practice counting from a given number up to 100 (start counting at 60 – 100).

Reading

When you read look for snap words (sight words)  – use your snap word superpower!

Practice sight words – Sight Word flashcards can be found at the top of our blog.

Read everyday!

Writing

Practice writing sentences with our sight words of the week in them (him, jump)

Think of a true story/small moment story that you can write about.  Write a beginning, middle, and end.  (For example:  First I got my boots and coat on.  Then I walked to the trail.  We walked to the lake.  It was beautiful.)

Social Studies

What has been your favorite thing you have done during this stay at home time?  Draw a picture of yourself, label it, add color.  

Keep up the good work kinders and families…I am so proud of you!!  I hope that you will be able to “zoom” with me and your friends Monday night at 6:30pm.  I can’t wait to see you!

Reminders

It has been really sad not being in class together.  I can not thank you enough for checking our classroom blog for suggestions and daily short videos to encourage you and your kinder. Feel free to  take a picture or video that shows your kinder learning at home. I LOVE putting this on our blog so that we can see each other….in a new way.  If you don’t want your picture or video posted, that is fine too.  I still like seeing them.  Please remember to use the Educational Fun links on the blog. Raz-kids is a great resource for reading! 

Also, check out the Georgetown school blog for information on grab-n-go meals and other essential items.  The meals are available to ANY CHILD who may be in need.

I can’t wait until we are back learning together again!! Sending you all hugs and love during this time.  Mrs. Bohl
