Here is what we are working on this week:

Reading/Phonics:

Our theme this week is Neighborhoods/Maps and Directions.

We have finished all of our colors of the week.  We will continue to review them throughout the school year.

Our popcorn words this week are “here” and “that.”

Our letter of the week is Gg.

Please work with your child at home to ensure that they have mastered the following words:

Jesus, God, blue, can, I, red, the, we, yellow, like, green, a, to, and, see, play, purple, orange, go, is, pink, brown, black, have, you, for, white, gray, are, look, here, that

Math: We are continuing learning about 2D shapes and their attributes.  Ask your child if he/she can tell you what a vertex is! 😊 We are also counting to 100 by ones, tens, and fives.

Writing: Drawing real life pictures with 3-star coloring (colors make sense, no white spaces, staying in the lines) and using labels.  We are working on sounding out words.

 

Looking forward to another great week in Kindergarten! 😊
