Parents, Welcome back! I hope everyone had a joyous Christmas season. Kindergarten is going to be very busy this semester. Here are a few things we will be working on this nine weeks.
Religion: The next prayers we are working on reciting are the Glory Be and Hail Mary, remember your child needs to recite these prayers clearly and with no prompts. I will continue to assess participation, paying attention and behavior during Mass. Please continue to make sure child is genuflecting and making the Sign of the Cross correctly when you are at Mass.
Language Arts: Starting next week your child will need to write their first and last name on their papers, write upper and lower case letters of the alphabet from memory. Use correct letter formation when writing. We continue to work on decoding skills, using their knowledge of letters and their sounds to decode words in text, recognize high frequency words, and read with fluency. We will also learn more about nouns , verbs and adverbs.
Math: We have just started a unit on subtraction and will work on counting numbers to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's . And continue to work on forming numbers correctly.
Personal and Social: This nine weeks your child will need to be able to recite their address, phone number and birthday ( just month and day). We are also working on tying shoes. Your child should also be able to put on and zip their coats by themselves.
Science: This nine weeks we will be leaning about Physical Science: Learning about the impact of sunlight and creating shade.
Social Science: We will be learning about map skills and symbols of Kansas. And how to distinguish between wants and needs.
As you can see we will be very busy. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
