Week of 9/27/2021

Hello everyone! I hope you had a lovely weekend.

This week in Math we have been working on recognizing numbers 0-5 and practicing writing them. Students also got to practice doing some independent work and had to complete these assignments on their own and have me check it for them afterwards. Being able to count orally and being able to recognize the numbers (out of order) are two different skills, and the latter one is what most Kindergarten students need to work on right now. Next week, we will start working on numbers 6 through 10.

In Reading, students worked on letters Dd, Bb, Gg, Ww, and Ee this week. They made disco balls for the letter Dd that are now hanging on the door and they made waffle headbands, for the letter Ww. Students have had lots of practice this week reviewing letters that we have already learned.

Students also had their first Class Book Report! This is something that I try to do monthly with Kindergarten. This helps students with story concepts and understanding and remembering the sequence of events of a story. The first book report was on Wordy Birdy by Tammi Sauer. We read this so that we could also have a conversation about the importance of listening and how if we don’t listen, we miss out on important information.

In Science we are still working on learning about the four seasons. Students started this week with an art project in which students made trees for certain seasons. Students got to choose which season they did and they made the trunk of the tree with crayon. Students put their fingers in the ink and used their fingerprints to make leaves. The beautiful trees are now hanging in the hallway for everyone to see!

Students got some time to work on puzzles this week, and they have gradually been getting harder puzzles to work on to challenge them more and more. Challenging them in this way also helps build resiliency skills! They get such a thrill when they realize they accomplished something the didn’t think they could before!

Students did a great job listening for Mrs. Michael this week, when I was out sick one day this week. I’ve been proud of the way that some students have been growing with their behavior and getting better and better!

I’m looking forward to seeing how students do this week, and I am thankful for all of the wonderful communication I have had with all of you parents! Thank you for working with me to make sure your students grow and learn as much as they can in school.

As always, reach out to me with any questions you may have.


Ms. V 🙂
