    Week of March 20 – 24 News


    Last week was a short but fun week.  In religion Sister Theresa taught us about how light is a symbol of God and we learned how we can let our light shine for others by being kind.  


    Our letter of the week was the letter Zz.  We have now finished the alphabet!  We ended our week by painting zebras and upper and lowercase letter Z.  The students love to paint! In Kindergarten we continue working on beginning reading and writing skills.  In reading we worked on sounding out unknown words and sight words.  See if your Kindergarten student can read you Jake Plants Grapes .  This reader went home this last Friday.  In TK language arts, the students continue to work on letter recognition, letter sounds, rhyming, and simple sight words.  As a whole class on Friday, we worked on using pictures to tell a story and story sequencing.  We told the story of a chick hatching from an egg and growing into a chicken by putting the five story cards in order.  In handwriting we are working on writing our names using correct upper and lowercase letters.  We are also starting to work on writing our last names.  


    In Kindergarten math, we have been working on beginning addition by combining two groups to make a larger group.  We have learned the “+” and “=” symbols.  We also learned that there are several different ways we can make a group.  For example, we can make a group of 6 by combining 1 and 5, 2 and 4, 3 and 3, and 0 and 6.  In TK math students continue to work on numeral recognition, counting skills, numeral sequencing and AB patterns.


    As a whole class, we had art this week and made a special surprise for our parents with the “Clay Lady”.  We also celebrated the Feast of St. Joseph with a special Mass.


    We didn’t have Social Studies this week due to Mass, pull out art, and two short days.  In science we continued to talk about the needs of plants and checked in on our lima bean seeds.  So far, our lima beans haven’t started to grow.  We hope to see some change in them next week.  

    It was such a joy meeting everyone at parent / teacher conference time.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend.  Keep checking the website for weekly updates.
