We will celebrate Valentine’s Day with a card exchange on February 14th. We ask that you please do not send any candy or treats to be passed out due to allergy concerns. If desired, your child may pass out small tokens, such as mini erasers. We also ask you not to address invitations to specific children, but only to sign the giver’s name to expedite delivery.
This week we are working on stretching consonant clusters to help us read and write words beginning with two or more consonants, such as: stop, start, smell, etc. We are also working on digraphs when two letters together make one sound such as wh, ch, or sh. We are encouraging students to say a word before writing it, stretching out the sounds and writing a letter for each sound they hear. We are adding more words to our labels instead of labeling items with just one word. For example, students might label a pre-writing drawing with “pretty pink flower” instead of just “flower”.
We are working hard in our math binders and centers, reviewing number lines, word problems, tens frames, addition, and subtraction.
Our celebration of the 100th day of school was a blast! The children looked amazing as 100 year old versions of themselves! We got a chance to see ALL of the kindergartners outfits as we visited between rooms and we had special 100th day themed centers. These included building with 100 large solo cups and 100 legos, creating artwork with the number 100, and writing in our 100th day packets. We thoroughly enjoyed the fun!
IT’S GREAT BEING A KINDERGARTNER AT SFX SCHOOL!
