Highlights

Themes

This month have learned about Texas! We learned about Texas symbols such as the Texas flag and our start flower. We have loved learning more about our State!

Math

We have expanded our learning on shapes. We learned about how many vertices and lines a shape has. We have just started learning more about 3D shapes!

Superkids

We have been working on the letter Nn with all of our Superkids! We have read words that have the letter N, reviewed their sounds and worked on writing uppercase and lowercase N’s.

 

Dear Parents,

We can’t believe it is almost April, but are ready for springtime and warmer weather! This year has flown by and we have been very busy learning.

 

Does your child have spring fever?  Here are some tips to help beat it....

1. Remember bed time is still important even though the sun is staying up longer.  Kindergartners need 11-12 hours of sleep each night and it is recommended for them to go to bed before 8:00.

2.  Keep routines as home....like still practicing readers and sight words each night.  

3.  Get in some physical activity.  Enjoy this spring weather and go on a walk or bike ride. Your child works hard during the school day and extra physical activity helps get out those wiggles. 

Hope these tips help your little one beat their spring fever!

 

Have a blessed week,

Molly Schell

Highlights

Themes

This month have learned about the past and present! We learned about what school, homes and life used to look like and we compared them to what we currently have and use in our school, homes and daily life. The kids loved learning about what school used to look like for kids in the past.

Math

We have expanded our learning on addition and subtraction. We have just started learning all about coins too. The kids have been singing a song in calendar about coins. Ask them to sing it for you!

Superkids

We have been working on the letters Uu and Bb with all of our Superkids! We have reviewed the letters, their sounds and identifying words that start with these sounds.

Reading and Writing

We are working on writing and reading words phonetically with the beginning, middle and ending sounds while also using finger spaces between our words and lowercase letters. We have been working on writing stories including what we were doing, who was there and how we felt. In our writing center, students are writing letters to their friends.

 

Dear Parents,

We have been very busy at school learning! The kids have been loving doing addition and subtraction and doing our new centers to expand their knowledge.

To extend learning at home, you can:

-Practice your sight words daily

-Read your books daily we send home

-Read and write CVC (consonant, vowel, consonant) words such pit, put, mat, dog

-Write stories! We have them write their first sentence with what they were doing, second sentence is who they were with and the third sentence is about how they felt. Example: I went to Disneyland. I was with my family. I was happy to be there!” *We are working on using lowercase letters when appropriate and using finger spaces between our words.

 

Have a blessed week,

Molly Schell
