VALENTINES DAY INFORMATION:
Valentines Day is next Friday, February 14th, and the students will exchange valentines. Children are permitted to attach non-food items only to their cards, such as small erasers or toys. IMPORTANT: Please do not send food/candy items of any kind. Please have your child sign his/her name but do not assign cards to specific students. This will help the passing of the cards run smoothly. Thank you for your attention to this.
A Week in Review:
Reading Workshop: We are learning to preview our reading pages, locating known words before reading. We are checking for “snap” words and noting the letters in bigger words. At this point, the students are feeling confident about their sight word knowledge and are using that knowledge to read more challenging books.
Writing Workshop: We continue to write daily. Here, again, there is a new level of confidence as the children record their thoughts through story writing and true experience writing. It is gratifying to witness the continued progress and growth.
Math: We are learning about flat and solid shapes and how we can see them all around us. We are working on identifying and classifying shapes in our math centers.
IT’S GREAT BEING A KINDERGARTNER AT SFX SCHOOL!
