What a week! A few days of at home learning and a few days of in person learning at school. It feels good to be back with friends! I just need to say it one more time…THANK YOU, THANK YOU for supporting your kinder in so MANY ways while we were at home learning! 🙂
POPCORN WORDS: WHAT. IT
MATH: The kinders worked on solving addition and subtraction math stories, writing out equations, building teen numbers, writing teen numbers and seeing 5 groups within 6-10.
WRITING: The kinders wrote a small moment story of their choice. They did a fabulous job including capital letters, finger spaces, sentence stoppers, sight words and detail drawings.
LITERACY: The kinders did activities that focused on parts of a sentence (putting the sentence in order to make sense), word families (rhymes), syllables, beginning sounds and identifying and writing popcorn words.
READING: The kinders celebrated being readers! They learned what it means to retell a book after reading. It is important to understand what we are reading and we can practice this by retelling our books. The kinders read stories to family members, stuffed animals and friends. They reviewed using their super powers to help them be the best reader they can be! 🙂
HOLIDAY FUN: We enjoyed reading some different versions of The Gingerbread Man. We found out that 14 kinders like gingerbread cookies and 5 do not. The kinders were excited to make stockings for Santa and super excited to use glitter to write their names. 🙂
KOOL KINDER: A new round of being the Kool Kinder has begun. This time the kinders will need to use their writing skills (draw a picture and write a sentence) to show what they like to do as a family. We found out that families like to ride bikes, go camping, go hiking and go to Great Wolf Lodge. We can’t wait to see and hear what fun activity you do, as a family, to create memories!
