This week and next are going to be jammed packed. The students will be making lots of holiday crafts and learning holiday songs.
In Reader’s, we will be reading, Santa’s Stuck by Rhonda Gowler Greene. We will be focusing on predicting, retelling and inferring. The students will also make their own Santa stuck in the chimney.
In Math, we are working on our senses, word problems to 5 and counting to 100.
In Social Studies, we will be learning about how different countries celebrate Christmas or Hanukah.
To start off the week, we had the illustrator, Michael P. White come and share how he draws his pictures for children’s books. We were able to draw a frog, pig and a bear.
Getting to meet Michael P. White
We also were able to go to the STEAM lab and use the Beebots. We programed the Beebots to move to a number between 11-20.
Counting the objects to check the correct number amount.
Kindergarten has been busy the last few weeks. The Kindergarteners have been learning to count objects to 10 and counting to 50. To celebrate counting to 50, we had the 50th day of school and we dressed up in poodle skirts and leather jackets. We learned how to do the hand jive and we were able to compare how things were in the 50’s to now.
We are so excited to start a new school year and looking forward to the year ahead!
