We have done so many fun activities this week. Our class has adjusted to our kindergarten classroom and we were ready to hit the ground running on Monday. Some of the highlights from this week are:
1) Subtraction Bowling, we had a BLAST practicing subtraction from 10 by knocking over cups! Here are some moments I captured from that day.
2) Our Writing Project, we read the story Jack and the Wolf and did a writing activity and some artwork to go with it! Here are some of the kids getting crafty!
As you can see we have been hard at work this week! I have also been VERY impressed by behavior this week, continue to reinforce that at home!
Reading: We will be reading an informational text about how animals communicate. Our sound of the week will be words with beginning r blends. Ex: drip, crab, brag, etc. Our focus skill next week will be informational text features such as table of contents, glossary, bold words, and captions.
Math: Next week we are going to continue learning about graphs. We will first review tally charts and picture graphs, and then begin our study of bar graphs. We will practice making bar graphs and learn how to analyze and interpret data.
Writing: We will be writing an expository/informational narrative about how animals communicate. We will use our reading story of the week to gather facts and information before writing our narrative.
Grammar: Next week we will continue writing correctly structured sentences. We will be using a "Sentence Buddy" to make sure we have all the important parts of a sentence.
**This week I sent home a form to schedule parent-teacher conferences. If you have not returned that form please do as soon as possible to ensure you get a time that works for you! I will be sending home a paper with your conference date and time next week so please keep an eye out!
**Picture day is September 24th. If you wish to purchase pictures please look over the information that was sent home this week.
**Repairs have started in our classroom! I still don't have an exact timeline but I am happy to see progress is being made!
Thank you all for another great week!
