Hello Families and Friends,
I hope you child will soon be talking about our new study of day and night. The excitement and interest level is very high. We kicked off the unit with a visit from the sandman. He wrote to our Kindergarten students, telling them they are going to be learning about the following things: day and night, the sun, twinkling stars, the moon, nocturnal animals, shadows, and much more.
We will be celebrating our learning of Day and Night on Tuesday, November 25th. On that early release day of school, the children may wear their favorite pajamas to school. If your child does not want to wear pajamas they may wear comfy clothes instead. This will be a fun day of learning as we put this unit to “bed”.
In Math, we will begin a new unit on what comes next. The focus of this unit is constructing and extending patterns. Their goals for this unit are: 1) Being able to copy, construct, and extend simple repeating patterns such as AB, ABC. 2) Begin to identify the unit of a repeating pattern.
In Literacy, we’ve been working hard on rhyming words, beginning sounds, letters and the sounds they make, and determining how many syllables are in words. This week, we’ve also learned the word “IS”. We’ve practiced reading and writing the word “is” and using “is” in a sentence. They’re getting in the routine of doing centers, and working hard. It’s great to see how much they’ve grown and learned since September!
