December 13, 2018:- We have readers in Kindergarten! Please, please, please keep reading with them everyday over the break from school. I’m excited to see what 2019 will bring!
December 7, 2018: It’s an exciting month and we’re harnessing that into reading! The Kindies have been reading books everyday and it’s really fun to see the growth in them. In Math we just started measuring weight and will be using scales soon. In Science we’re learning about habitats that animals and plants need. It’s fun to teach them about how wonderful the creation is that God gave us. All that and still they know their parts for the Christmas service!
November 29, 2018: This week we began to learn the Christmas Program that will be on December 20th. You won’t want to miss it! The kindies already know two of the songs. Thanks for sending all the appropriate snow gear this week….keep it coming. They have so much fun playing in the snow.
November 15, 2018: It’s an exciting week in Kindergarten with the buzz of the field trip that’s coming up. We will use that energy to write about the experience. The book order that is due Friday is the last one I’ll submit before Christmas. Remember the booster seats on Friday!
November 8, 2018: From now until Thanksgiving we are learning about shapes in Math. Word families were introduced and it’s been fun using Dr. Seuss as inspiration! I have challenged all of them to learn how to tie a shoe by next week and they are eagerly practicing. The countdown to seeing Beauty and the Beast is getting exciting!
October 25, 2018: Besides all the amazing reading and math we’re working on I added tying shoes to the day! It amazes me everyday how hard these 5 year olds are willing to work and how eager they are to conquer new things. They are writing their memory work and also making a 10 Commandments book as an ongoing writing project.
October 18, 2018: The Kindies are turning into readers and authors. They learned about lists and sequence by making pizza dough. They also are up to 24 sight words, with more added to what they know almost daily. Kindy parents will find the words in the trail Guides.
Oct 4, 2018: In how we are also tempted but have the weapon of God’s Word to help us resist. The memory treasure of the week is John 11:25. We also are working hard to break the habit of blurting out during learning times.
Sept 27, 2018: In reading we have several sight words we’re practicing. The list of words they’re reading grows by the day!! To help reinforce starting sounds our Show & Share on Friday will be “Things that start with a B” this Friday. In science we’re having fun exploring using Science Tools.
Sept 20, 2018: The Kindies are having a great week learning about the birth of Jesus. It’s such a blessing to be able to teach the story of our salvation! Also, in math we learned about Zero the Hero.
Sept 13, 2018: This week we are really buckling down and working on writing, especially thinking about Uppercase and Lowercase letters. The kids are so willing to work and learn! To keep everyone safe, we changed our snack and lunch policy to NO peanut butter in our classroom.
Sept 6, 2018: Off to a great start! We learned the song “Jesus Loves the Little Children”, counted to five with our pinky fingers first, and started working on writing, all the first day. We will keep practicing the song and sing it Sunday.
