Welcome to Kindergarten
Classroom News and Notes
Week of March 1 - 5
Christ Light: In this week’s Bible story, “Mary and Martha”, the children are reminded that listening to God’s Word is more important than anything else. What a wonderful blessing to be able to learn more about our Savior through Bible stories, family devotions, and attending church!
Memory Work: Colossians 3:2 Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.
Superkids: Last week your child brought home another Superkids club book. Has he has a chance to read to you out of his book? There are some fun stories written at just the right level for him to share with you! This week the students will hear all about the Superkids’ plan for a picnic. They will also begin reviewing the letter Vv and its sound and learning about using apostrophes for possessive words.
Math: The children will be continuing to practice identifying numbers as greater than, less than, or equal to. They will review skip counting by tens. In addition, they will be playing a game in which they will see that 10 pennies make a dime and 10 dimes make a dollar.
Writing: This week the students will finish their personal narrative stories and have a writing celebration for the children to share their work with their classmates. They will also be starting their new writing unit about writing fictional stories.
Daily: Reading/blending pages/math facts
Thursday: Read Christlight Bible story – Mary and Martha – Complete the worksheet.
Unit Studies: This week the children will be learning about being healthy by staying fit and active. They will practice different types of exercises and learn why it is important to keep our bodies moving!
Shoe Tying: How is shoe tying coming at home? Be sure to keep practicing!
Book Orders: Book orders are being sent home this week and are due back by Friday, March 5th. Ordering online is also easy and convenient. You may use the code J8W63. My husband and I share a Scholastic account, so if you see Mr. Brown’s class listed, you are in the right place.
Book It: Completed February calendars may be turned in this week to redeem a free personal pizza coupon.
Blessings on your week!
