IMG_6104During our morning work time, the children found picture words that start with the letter ‘D’ to glue on a duck.

During our Morning Meeting, we focused on the letter ‘D,’ and they helped complete a sight word poetry page for the sight word ‘is.’ We also learned the green color word song, and we read and discussed the book ‘The Most Disgusting and Dirty Germs.’ This was a wonderful discussion about making sure we wash our hands! We also discussed how all of them will be authors and illustrators during our Writer’s Workshop, and I showed them my own book as we discussed how our book should be about one thing and our pictures should match our words.

Learning Centers:

Small group with me: The children made their own caterpillar to show each letter in their name. They also counted the number of letters in their name and recorded the results.

Literacy: The children completed their own sight word poetry page for their sight word folder.

Literacy: The children put together a silly sentence to say the following: “The dinosaur has a doughnut.”

Math: The children wrote their name in tiles, and they measured their name with bears, links, and blocks. They recorded the results.

Literacy: The children worked hard to make their own book. I will use these books to put together our Writer’s Workshop groups.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Dear Kinder Students & Parents,

Whew!  What a crazy and busy week we’ve had in kindergarten!  I’m proud of how hard my kinder friends worked while I was gone for training.  Our days will return to normal next week!  :)

This week we worked on our letters C & D.   Next week, we will work on E & F.  We also worked on our numbers 1-5.

I will be checking homework when we return on Tuesday.  This will give you the weekend to get caught up.  Students who turn in their homework will get a prize from the treasure chest.  New monthly homework will be located in your child’s binder when they come home Tuesday.  :)

Please check your child’s binder for our new snack calendar.   It is located in the back cover.  Remember we are a PEANUT FREE classroom!

HAVE A GREAT LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!

Love,

Miss Lee

 

During our morning work time, the children worked on a ‘D’ book.

During our Morning Meeting, we concentrated on the letter ‘D,’ and the children practiced making this letter. We also reviewed number, and we talked about how to sort objects. We read and discussed the book ‘If You Give A Dog A Donut.’

Small group with me: The children used a shaving cream and glue mixture with food coloring to put ‘frosting’ on donuts. Then, they used sight words to describe their creation.

Literacy: The children practiced writing the letter ‘D.’

Math: The children practiced writing the number 2, and they sorted colored teddy bears in our math center by color and grouped them in 2′s.

Sensory Table

Literacy: The children made a letter ‘D’ wheel to show items that start with letter ‘D.’

I will be sending home our newsletter and a new snack calendar for September tomorrow!
