This week, we will be starting our mini-unit which studies machines and motion.
We are reading Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel and Dig, Dig, Digging. We will be focusing on categorizing and characterizing.
We will be writing about our friends this week. Students are learning to use webs to organize their thoughts before writing. Students should be using end punctuation at the end of each sentence/"idea" and starting to capitalize the first letter in a sentence.
We will start focusing on numbers 21-100 over the next couple weeks leading up to the 100th day of school. The One Hundred chart that students did last week was a pre-assessment on numbers to 100. Students will be expected to correctly fill in a One Hundred chart within two to three weeks. Please review the math book sent home and complete any unfinished pages at home. Do not return the math book. We will be using the terms towers (tens) and cubes (ones) as we learn how numbers are constructed of tens and ones.
Machines and motion.
This Friday is our end of the month Class Dojo event. Students that have received 40+ points will be given a certificate and can participate in Friday's game day! They will also be excused from doing homework all next week (homework pass)! Also, Friday from 11-12 I invite you to come into school for our "Homes around the world" displays. Feel free to BYOC (bring your own coffee) and come enjoy the wonderful work done by all the kindergarten students. You are free to stay from 12-12:30 for game day with the students too. See you Friday.
