Week 20

Another great week in kindergarten!  Look what we've been up to:

In math, we are doing lots of skip counting by 5's and 10's and learned how to count by 2's using our mittens.

As writers, we have been talking about the importance of identifying what we are working on.  Because each writer is unique, we know that each writer focuses on different things.  We decided that working on one goal at a time is a good idea but that we can change our goal as we feel needed.
We are learning that reading is much more than reading (decoding) words.  We use the phrase "reading is thinking" to remind ourselves that understanding what the author is saying, is just as important and figuring out words.  

We had a fun S.T.E.A.M. project with Mrs. Merrill's 2nd grade class.  The children were paired up and asked to make a 3D symmetrical snowflake.  They were given strips of paper to make shapes out of and lots of tape and scissors too!

Snapshot of Next Week:

Monday 1/30 - Day 6:  Music & Art

Wednesday 2/1 - Day 2:  Wear C.A.R.E. shirts to school today!  Spanish & P.E.

Thursday 2/2 - Day 3:  Music

Friday 2/3 - Day 4:  Chapel, Spanish & Skating!  We skate in the afternoon from 1:45-2:45.  The more parents the better to help both on and off the ice!
