Welcome to Kindergarten!
The year is off to a great start! Your children have already shown progress in academic skills. It is so beautiful to see them grow in confidence with every new goal they master. Here is what we will be working on this month:
Reading - Our first unit is about families, pets, responsibilities, and careers. Skills covered are: classify and categorize, synonyms, antonyms, nouns, action verbs, summarizing, and main idea. We have four sight/high frequency words to learn in this unit: I, like, the, and. We continue to learn to write the letters of the alphabet, learn how to use labels in our writing, and begin to learn how to write narrative pieces.
Math - Our second math unit covers counting, one to one correspondence, sorting objects by size, shape, and color, writing numbers 6-10, introducing addition, addends, equal and not equal.
Religion - We are learning about how God talks to us in scripture, saints, and All Saints Day.
Science - We are learning about our 5 senses
Our lessons include a variety of hands on activities that provide opportunity for kinders to learn about and understand challenges caused by losing one of their 5 senses.
