What's New in Kindergarten

 

February into March in Kindergarten

 

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!
