October Fun

This week, we did not have a new letter of the week because it was a short week. Instead, we spent some time reviewing all of our letters and the popcorn words that we have learned so far.  Please remember to review the October sight word list at home.  We will continue with letter Dd next week.
Yesterday, the class did some research on pumpkins and learned about pumpkins and how they grow.  We used the information to make a pumpkin graphic organizer.  The students then wrote three things about pumpkins and sequenced the life cycle of pumpkins.  Their hard work is hanging on our classroom door.  They did such an amazing job with their writing!! I was very proud of them.  They can not wait to bring these home and share them with their families!

We also had some fun reading a Mickey Mouse Haunted House story and making a class book about a spooky night! :)  Be sure to check out the class books when you come in for conferences.  Our class book bucket is sitting outisde of our classroom.  We try to make one class book every week.
The class also used their cutting and listening skills to make some ghosts to decorate our classroom for the upcoming Halloween party.
Along with our everyday math lessons from Chapter 2 in our math series, we have been working on patterns.  This week the students made AAB patterns with pumpkins and bats.
As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns reagarding your child's progress in Kindergarten!

Bb Week

This past week, we have focused on learning and writing the letter Bb.  We had two new sight words for the week: see, be.  Please review these with your child at home.  We spent time reading several fall stories this week, painting fall leaves and trees, and making jack-o-lanterns.  The students also worked on making various fall patterns.  The class did a great job making owls to decorate our bulletin board for the new season (picure below).

The class has been working on journal writing and we have also made a few class books that you will be able to look at during parent-teacher conferences.  Parent-teacher conference reminders were sent home this week.  If the time listed does not work out for you, please let me know!

Our  new poem this week was about a bear. We again used the poem to practice word order, word identification and rhyming words.   Please read this with your child when he/she brings the poem home.

Aa Week

This week, we have been busy learning about apples and the letter Aa!  Below you will find a few photos of the activities that we have been doing in class.  We have used our apple poem to learn about word spacing, patterns in print, rhyming, and sentence structure. We labeled the parts of the apple, sequenced an apple tree through the seasons and made a few apple crafts using our fine motor skills.
October Popcorn Words came home this week!  This week's words are: the, here, is.  
Please practice at home!

This is what we are working on every day in class.  Many students have been able to sign our charts for being superstar listeners and speakers!

The students had fun painting apples on the tree.  
This is always one of my favorite Kindergarten keepsakes. :)

Great work using those little finger muscles to tear the paper for our apple craft!

This is our apple poem in the pocket chart.  
We practiced mixing up the words and putting them back together.

In math, we have used ten frames to show how many while learning about the numbers 6, 7 and 8. Tomorrow, we will focus on writing the number 6, 7, and 8.

Reading -Your child should read our apple poem 3 times and return the signed slip tomorrow.
Math - Chapter 2-Lesson 2 Homework Sheet
October Reading Log - Read for about 10 minutes with your child and color a pumpkin.
Ocotber Family Project - This came home today, but is not due until Oct. 15.  Have fun creating this with your child!

A note came home today about snack.  Please send snack with your child next week!
