Welcome to Kindergarten!!!
We are looking forward to a great year with all of our new Kindergators! We have lots of fun activities planned throughout the year. I hope you will check back often for information.
Here's what we are doing in class:
In Language Arts we'll be working on CVC words (c-a-t, d-o-g, etc) as well as many important story features. (characters, setting, major events). They will also work on answering questions about a story. Students are also learning about rhyming words and syllables. In small reading groups with me, we will be working on print concepts (front/back of the book, punctuation, which way to track when reading-left/right, top to bottom, title, where to start reading, etc). We will also work on sight words and reading strategies.
In math we will learn about addition and subtraction as well as decomposing numbers. This means we will take a number (6) and break it apart into its number pairs (5+1, 4+2, 3+3, 2+4, 1+5, 0+6, 6+0). We will also begin working on breaking apart teen numbers into groups of ten and more ones.
We will be working on a unit about weather. We will use our 5 senses to help us learn about the weather and the seasons.
In Social Studies we will be working on needs and wants.
Below are our sight words. You can begin working on these now. We will learn 4 new words a week in class. There are over 150 sight words that Kindergators are to know by the end of the year so the more practice they have the better!
