We have had a busy January!  Along with daily reading, we have been learning about seasonal changes (winter) and how we and animals prepare for it.  In math, we finished our unit on numbers to 50 and are beginning measurement.  The kindergarten curriculum works with non-standard measurements.  We introduce the tools used to measure, such as thermometers, scales, rulers and calendars.  They will need to know which tool to use for length, height, weight, temperature and time.

As we approach the spring, we will begin learning about shadows, magnets, phases of water, maps and globes, recycling, famous Americans, money, time and many more curriculum standards.

This is the time where I begin teaching your child how to be a student.   Learning how to learn as I call it.  They will have to listen to information, look for it in appropriate kindergarten text and participate in class discussions on the topics.   If you do not focus and pay attention, this will be difficult.  By teaching thru hands on opportunities as well as auditory and visual activities, this will be fun and easy.  So ask your child when they get home what they learned today. Look in their folders.   This is my favorite time in Kindergarten, we have gotten down the rules and routines and now are ready to apply what we have learned.

I am so proud of each and everyone of my students.    Linda Livingston

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We are off to a great start!   I hope you enjoy the Snowman project that was sent home on Monday 1/7.  It is not due until Friday, January 18.  There is also a reading log that I would love for your child to complete.  Reading for meaning is our goal.  Please encourage your child to tell you what happened in the story.  Retelling the beginning, middle and end are essential to story comprehension.

Muffins with Mom is scheduled for Friday, January 18.  Please send the green form back if you plan on participating.

Multicultural Museum Night is February 21!  It will be a wonderful night to display our family traditions and help us to discover that while we are very different, we are also the same many ways!

I am looking forward to 2019 and watching them grow even more each day!
