We had a short but busy week! This week we did many one-on-one activities to showcase what we know and have learned so far this year. We are continuing to work on our sight words, rhyming, and segmenting words. This week we talked about weather and what we like to do in various types of weather. In math we compared sets of numbers and did basic addition and subtraction practice. This week Miss Rake returned to our classroom. She will be with us until May.

Next week we will participate in a virtual assembly all about the Kids Heart Challenge. Please follow this link to learn more about the program: https://pequea.pennmanor.net/2022/01/14/kids-heart-challenge-2/

Tomorrow we will have a  “BE YOU” day. Dress and be you. If you like hats…wear them! If you like crazy socks…wear them! If you like sweats…wear them! If you like hoodies…wear them! Just be you!

We had a great week in kindergarten! This week we read the book The Mitten by Jan Brett. We talked about mittens and catogorized items that we wear when it is cold. We sequenced story events and discussed setting and characters. We sorted animals that were and were not in the book, we wrote about losing mittens, and we painted mittens using a crayon resist method to make beautiful designs. In math we worked with the concepts more than and fewer than, counted sets, and practiced writing numbers. We are continuing to talk about feelings and how to identify what we are feeling, and we worked on strategies for getting back to our calm spot. Mrs. Keller visited us and helped use our classroom computers, and she helped us learn about all the tools on SeeSaw.

Snow Day!

School is closed today, Friday, January 7, due to inclement weather. Enjoy your day!

We had a great week back. We talked about new years promises, goals, and how much we have grown and what we still want to learn. We are working on concepts of greater than, fewer than, and equal to as we compare sets and numbers. Mrs. Semple, our school guidance counselor, visited us and we talked about how to identify different feelings. We are practicing our sight words – please make sure you are practicing the green and blue word cards, as we will be doing a progress check this month to see how many we can read quickly. If you need a new copy of the cards, you can download them from the Important Information page on this blog. We will try to go outside each day, so please make sure your kindergartener is prepared for the weather.
