We’ve had a busy 5 day week! We have started our Pals test, which is our reading test that we do 3 times a year. It’s hard to believe we are already midyear! I am so proud of their improvement.
Jan Brett books have been read this week and we have made predictions about the books. We read The Snowy Nap, The Mitten, and The Hat. These are favorite books in kindergarten!
In math, we are continuing learning Part/Part/Whole. For example, how many ways can you make 3? 1 & 2, 3 & 0, 2 & 1, 0 & 3 etc. We have used manipulative games to show the possibilities!
Magnets are so much fun! Ask you child what things magnets attract. We will finish up next week with making Magnet Man!
