Today we practiced forming, recognizing, and producing the letter J /j/.  As a class, we came up with a list of words beginning with the /j/ sound. We listed: jelly bean, jester, Joker, jump, jam, jog,  juggle, jellyfish, job, and juice.

Letter Sound Review: We are coming to an end to our first six weeks.  Currently, are reviewing all letters and sounds using song, sign language, teacher instruction, and center work.  Please check out our ASL Letter/Sound song we use here!

We read the emergent reader, The Fall Basket, which included the new sight word: in.  We practiced tracking and the reading strategies: looking for patterns and looking for words we know.  These books went home to be read for homework.

In math, we are working on counting by 1′s to 20, recognizing numbers 0-10, and skip counting by 10′s to 100.  Ask your child to practice counting by 10′s by “Climbing up the Mountain.”  You can check out this song here!

Reminder: Tomorrow students who bring a can good are permitted to dress as their favorite storybook character.

Also, we will be dismissing at 12:20.

Pajama Day!

pj1 pj2

Tomorrow is Neon Day… students are permitted to wear their brightest clothes if they bring in a can good for the food drive! :)

During our morning work time, the children worked on the sight word ‘is.’

During our Morning Meeting, we focused on the letter ‘I,’ the sight word ‘and,’ and we worked on pointing to items when we count the total amount. We also played a listening game, which allowed the children to act as a cat or a mouse, and they mouse had to take the cheese without the cat hearing them. They loved this game, and we discussed the importance of listening. We talked about measurement, and we worked on putting together silly sentences. The children practiced writing the letter ‘I.”

Learning Centers:
Small group with me: We read the sight word book “Foods I Like” together, and we played a sight word game.

Literacy: The children practiced writing the letter “I.”

Math: The children measured different classroom items with leaves, and they recorded their results.

Math/Literacy: The children put ‘scoops’ on an ice cream cone, counted the scoops, and they used sight words and this amount to be able to write about their ice cream.

Literacy: The children put together a silly sentence to say the following: “I love to eat ice cream.”

Tomorrow is Pajama Day!

Have a wonderful evening!

During our morning work time, the children found picture words that start with letter ‘G.’ They also tasted red, green, and yellow apples to record on our graph the color that they liked the best. During this time, they took turns cutting apples to make our applesauce. They did a wonderful job with this cooking activity, and they had so much fun!

During our Morning Meeting, we continued to focus on the letter ‘G’ and ‘H,’ and we discussed ‘tall’ and ‘short’ letters or letters that go only downstairs or upstairs and downstairs in words. We read and discussed the book “The Apple Tree,” and we totaled our apple tasting graph. Most of the children liked the granny smith apples the best!

Learning Centers:
Small group with me: I painted their hand to be a tree trunk, and they used their fingers to make red and green apples. They counted each apple amount, wrote about how many they have of each color, and they recorded this on their sheet. They also counted to find the total amount.

Literacy: The children completed a letter ‘H’ book.

Math: The children worked on number puzzles together.

Literacy: The children put the correct letters in tall and short boxes to complete words that start with “H.”

Literacy/Science: The children completed their own apple life cycle project, and they used sight words to write about each stage.

I am very sorry because we finished Learning Centers around 2:48, and I was not able to pass out the school newsletter that we received this afternoon. Next week is Homecoming Week, and we will have special dress up days. Please send in a canned food item for each day that your child participates. These can be celebrated as the following:
Monday: Mismatch Day
Tuesday: Pajama Day
Wednesday: Neon Day
Thursday: Dress up as your favorite character in a book, movie, or television show.
Friday: Show your APA pride with lots of blue!
Have a wonderful weekend!IMG_6954

All About Marvelous Me!!!

Today in class we talked about what makes us alike and different.  We looked at our hair colors, eye colors, and skin colors.  We also discussed our names, and how special each of our names are… We learned that our name was one of the first gifts our moms and dads gave us!  We completed two projects.  Our self portraits and our name gifts.  We loved celebrating all our beautiful colors!

Name Gifts – Use the letter tiles at home to practice building your name and naming the letters in your name.

Self-Portraits – Self-portraits will be displayed on our “Marvelous Me Tree” in the kindergarten hallway.

Coming home this evening is the Art Scentsy fundraiser form.  Please follow the directions on the back of the envelope for this fundraiser.  This fundraiser is to help raise money for art supplies!  Thank you for all your support!!!

Next week is Homecoming Week!  Please take a peek at the back of our school newsletter for more information.  Students will be permitted to dress up if they bring a can good to school that day.

Monday – Mis-Match Day!
