On Tuesday, November 20th, we will be holding a brief classroom awards ceremony at 12:30pm to recognize the hard work that our students have done this marking period. This quick recognition will last between 5-10 minutes as students’ names are read aloud with their achievements this quarter. Following the awards, at 1:00pm, all five kindergarten classes will head down to the café for a “Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast”. Our kindergarteners have been learning about the holiday of Thanksgiving (Social Studies SOL K.11). In celebration of this holiday, students will be tasting different foods to represent the First Thanksgiving (popcorn, animal crackers, goldfish, fruit-juice drink). We invite you to come to our classroom awards and then to the café to watch students enjoy this fun event. Also, we would greatly appreciate any food donations or volunteer help you can provide us for this activity (set-up/clean-up). We ask that you sign up online using the following link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f094aafab28a1fc1-student
This week we enjoyed listening to Family Thanksgiving stories. We worked really hard on explaining: Who? What? When? Where? How? Which? We also worked on identifying ending sounds. We practiced finding sight words: mom, dad, we. Math this week, we continued working on Math this week, we worked on comparing and describing three sets of ten or fewer objects using the terms more, fewer and the same number. Social Studies this week, we identified and described the holiday and people associated with Thanksgiving.
Here are some videos to help at home:
After Thanksgiving Break we will be learning the following:
Sight words: look, not
Medial Sounds: /a/ /o/
We are continuing working on: Who? What? When? Where? How? Which?
We are going to collect, organize, and represent data in object graphs, picture graphs, and tables.
We are going to identify daily weather conditions — sunny, rainy, cloudy, snowy, windy, warm, hot, cool, and cold.
Please read to your child or have your child read to you every night!
Thank you for all of your help at home. If you have any questions, please email me!
