We had very short in-person week in kindergarten. Look what we did at school.
MATH: We took our unit #2 math test. This kinders did a great job! We also practiced putting numbers 1-10 in the correct order by playing a fun fall fox game.
WRITING: We continued to work on writing our personal narrative/small moment stories this week. The kinders thought of a real story that happened to them. They told the story to their partner and then worked on their OWN story by writing the beginning and middle of their story in a 3-page writing booklet. They can finish the ending at home. They were reminded to use ALL of our writing charts when writing real stories. They learned that writers say their sentence, working hard to write word after word on their paper.
READING: We added another Super Power to our chart. PERSISTENCE POWER reminds us to never give up when trying to tackle unknown words. Using our Super Powers really helps us be Super Readers!
zPOPCORN WORDS: AN, CAN, MAN, RAN The kinders were excited when they noticed that “an” was hiding inside of our other popcorn words. Our shared poem and book also included this week’s word…..can. We had fun making up a new story for when Max gets ready for a rainy day after reading how he gets ready to play outside.
HANDWRITING: We completed learning the proper formation of the lower case letters j,g,q,p,y, This booklet came home with your kinder. Please refer to it as you practice at home.
