Please make sure to check back monthly to learn more about what we have been working on and upcoming topics and skills to prepare for!
Where We’ve Been...
February is the shortest month of the year; however, it was quite a busy one in kindergarten. Throughout the month, the kindergarten students enjoyed various interdisciplinary activities about the groundhog, Valentine's Day, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and the 100th day of school. Math lessons included practice with addition and subtraction, and students were introduced to 3D shapes. The students concluded a unit about “how to” pieces in writing workshop. In reading, they analyzed patterns in stories. They also continued a unit of study about water in science.
Where We're Going...
The month of March will begin with the students’ participation in a school wide celebration of Read Across America Week. All month, kindergarten students will begin to write opinion pieces. We will review our reading "superpower" strategies in texts of higher levels. Weekly sight word rings will continue to have new words added to them, and the students will also continue to investigate word families as they review vowel sounds. Science activities will guide students to conclude their study of water. We look forward to discussing your child’s progress at conferences!
My Teaching Philosophy
My fundamental goal of teaching is to foster a love of learning in each child that crosses my path. I achieve this goal by targeting the specific learning styles of my students and creating fun and enriching activities that meet our daily objectives. I also believe that my students thrive in a nurturing and compassionate environment. We work hard to build our classroom into a community of learners who care deeply for one another. If I could instill just one value to my students it would be that learning never ends! My students see how much we all learn, including me, each day. Through these daily experiences they learn to become life-long learners! Teaching is my passion and I believe you should be passionate about the things you love most!
