March 20 – 24

Popcorn Words:  as, has.

Math:  We wrapped up our Unit 4 work and took our test on Friday.  These tests will come home next week.  In this unit we explored addition, subtraction, 3 D shapes, drawing pictures to show a story problem.  I am amazed at how far these Kindergarteners have grown!!

Readers Workshop:  We have finished our study on Fairy Tales.  Exploring The Little Red Hen, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and The Three Bears and The Three Billy Goats Gruff.  The Kindergarteners talked their way through the “Shape Go Map” on each of these stories.  Easily identifying the problem and talking through the solution.  Learning the lesson of each story about determination and not giving up.  Also being able to explore the Fiction genre.  The Kindergartners also learned two sight word games with these stories.  These games came home with them.  Please enjoy the variation of learning sight words with these newly learned games.

Writers Workshop:  The Kindergarteners wrote two books this week as Informational Writers.  They wrote  All About Bears and All About Goats.  They are ready to try this on their own next week.  They will be writing their “On Demand” Informational Writing piece next week.  I am confident they will shine with this upcoming task.

Mystery Readers:

  • On Monday we joined Ms. Yankee’s class and we were all treated to our amazing superintendent Dr. Nick Ceglarek as our Mystery Reader.  Dr. Ceglarek read us the book The Magician’s Hat by Malcom Mitchell.   Also sharing the amazing journey behind this book showing the Kindergarteners who the author was and his story.  Malcom Mitchell is a wide receiver with the New England Patriots.  Along with becoming a Super Bowl champion he has also become an author.  Hoping that his story and his writing will inspire children to read.  We loved hearing this book and having Dr. Ceglarek visit with us!  Thank you for visiting with us Dr. Ceglarek!!

Dr. Ceglarek asking us what is special about March….READING MONTH!!!

Dr. Ceglarek listening to what we want to be when we grow up….NBA player, Football player, Dancer, Teacher, Veterinarian, Doctor, so many ideas!

  • Tuesday Evie could not believe her eyes when she saw her Nana and Papa walk through our door as our Mystery Readers.  Evie’s grandparents read our class the book, A Visitor for Bear by Bonny Becker.  Our class quickly made the connection that we were also working on Bears this week in writing!  This book was adorable.  Telling us the story about bear and how he didn’t want any visitors then quickly realizing he really liked mouse and made a new friend!  Thank you for visiting with us and being our Mystery Reader!!

  • Friday we were treated to 24 Mystery Readers!!  Mrs. Bast’s first grade class snuck through our connecting door of our classrooms to surprise us as our Mystery Readers.  We were soooo excited to meet these new friends.  We each got to listen to a book from a first grader and then read our own book to them!!  It was so fun to show off our own reading skills!  The Kindergarteners also LOVED seeing  what a first grade classroom looks like.  It was a lot of fun!!  Thank you Mrs. Bast’s first graders for being our Mystery Readers!!  

Sam spots his sister Ava!!

March 13 – 17

Popcorn words:  were, where, there.

Math: This week we continued to practice our addition sentence writing.  Noticing that they can be written two different ways.  One way is to write the partners first then the answer ( 2 + 3 = 5).  Another way is to write the answer first then the partners (5 = 2 + 3).  The Kindergarteners are doing a great job of working on their subtraction skills as well.

Reader’s Workshop: This week we continued to explore Nonfiction Reading. This week we dove into learning about Bears and all of the Kindergarteners added a Non-fiction book to their book boxes, All About Bears. We added the fairytale Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  We enjoyed trying our own “porridge” on Friday.  Some of us decided we like porridge (oatmeal) and some of us did not.  The Kindergarteners loved making this connection to our fairytale.

 

Writer’s Workshop We continuing our informational writing piece on the topic of Bears. The Kindergarteners did a great job of gathering information from books and also exploring some bear facts from videos.   We will put what we learned into our own All About Bears book this week.

St. Patrick’s Day:  All week we had some tricky shenanigans in our classroom left by a mystery little leprechaun (Mrs. Stutz).  Our leprechaun left us shamrocks to hang, gold to find and yummy cupcakes on Friday to enjoy!!  We loved the little footprints he left us on our desks and walls!!

There have been multiple cases of strep throat diagnosed in the last few weeks in our school.   Your child may have recently been exposed to strep throat at school. Properly treated cases are no longer infectious. However, please watch your child for the symptoms which usually appear 2-5 days after exposure.

Cause: Strep throat and strep throat with a rash (scarlet fever) are common bacterial infections in children spread by coughing or sneezing.

Common Signs and Symptoms:

  •   Throat pain
  •   Difficultyswallowing
  •   Red and swollen tonsils, sometimes with white patches or streaks of pus
  •   Tiny red spots on the soft or hard palate — the area at the back of the roof    of the mouth
  •   Swollen, tender lymph glands (nodes) in your neck
  •   Fever
  •   Headache
  •   Rash
  •   Stomachache and sometimes vomiting, especially in younger children

Call your Health Provider: If you recognize any symptoms and suspect strep. For accurate diagnosis, a throat culture needs to be taken. Symptoms generally occur 2-3 days before a culture will show positive results. Following a culture being taken, your child should remain at home until you know the results.  Please call the office at 797-9797 to let the office know if your child tests positive for strep.  Our school needs to report these illnesses to the Health Department.

Popcorn words:   could, should, would.  We found ou patterns in words and enjoyed our easy reader book, Should I, Could I, Would I?

Reader’s Workshop: This week we continued to explore Nonfiction Reading. This week we dove into learning about Pigs and all of the Kindergarteners added a Non-fiction book to their book boxes, All About Pigs. We added the fairytale The Three Little Pigs.  We really enjoyed creating our own 3 little pig houses and character sets in our Three Little Pigs readers workshop folders.  To dig deeper on pigs we were so lucky to have a special guest speaker come and tell us all he knows about Pigs.  The guest speaker was Brycen Kuieck, a 5th grader (and son of Mrs. Kuieck-a 2nd grade teacher here at Georgetown Elementary) who is raising and training a Pig for a 4-H project.  He shared his knowledge with us and also shared some funny stories and pictures.  Thanks for visiting with us Brycen!!

Writer’s Workshop:  We have started writing our second Informational writing piece on the topic of Pigs. The Kindergarteners did a great job of gathering information from books and our guest speaker Brycen this week on Pigs.  They started their Can, Have, Are worksheets with important information. We will continuing writing on Pigs the beginning of upcoming week and then switch to Bears.

Star Student: Our next round of star student activities has started.  The activity is a Surprise Box that the students return with 3 clues that their classmates guess what is inside.  We have all loved guessing what could be inside the box!  We have seen such treasures as a ring, necklace, patch, and a gold dollar coin.  Be on the lookout for the surprise box coming home soon with your child!

Conferences: Our Spring Conferences will be held Monday, March 13 – Wednesday, March 15 from 4:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Conference time reminders were sent home  with your child.

February 27 – March 3

Popcorn words:   about, home, went.

Math: This week we worked with partners to help build partners that make up 10.   We continued to practice making Math mountains.  The Kindergarteners are also beginning to explore 2-D and 3-D shapes.  Noticing the difference between these two kinds of dimensional shapes.  We are continuing our practice of adding and subtracting as well.  We are really becoming amazing Math magicians!!

Reader’s Workshop: This week we started a new Unit: Nonfiction Reading. We have learned that Non-Fiction books are not fake…they are about real topics. They are books that teach us something that we want to know more about. We have explored the many features that we see in a Non-fiction book. Labels, diagrams, pictures, table of contents, highlighted words, etc. This week we dove into learning about Chickens and all of the Kindergarteners added a Non-fiction book to their book boxes. Including their own All About Chickens Non-fiction book. The Kindergarteners have LOVED looking at our variety of Non-fiction books in our classroom!!  We also introduced “Iggy the Iguana” as another strategy to predict what we are reading.  Iggy reminds us to make inferences, predictions of what will happen next in a story.

Shape Go Map:  The Kindergarteners have begun learning about digging deeper into their comprehension of a book.  We have started by exploring Fairy Tales with our non-fiction genre.  Helping the kindergarteners explore the difference between the two genres.  This week we started the fairytale of The Little Red Hen.  The kinders were able to distinguish easily between what was real and what was not real.  The Kindergarteners each have a copy now of The Little Red Hen story and their nonfiction book All About Chickens in their book boxes to read during our read to self time.  Our Shape Go Map teaches the Kindergarteners how to recognize the setting of a story, characters, telling the story and also discovering if there is a problem (none of the hens friends would help) and a solution (we decided it would be nice to share anyway with our friends) in the story.  The Kindergarteners explored this map by practicing a retell with partners using a storyboard and character pieces.  They will continue to practice this “Shape Go Map” comprehension more throughout the month.

 

Writer’s Workshop: We have started working on Informational writing this week.  As informational writers we are creating writing pieces that teach someone about a topic.  The Kindergarteners noticed that this kind of writing reminded them of How-To writing.  While it is similar they are different types of writing because with informational writing we are giving information on a topic not teaching someone how to do something.  We have started writing our first writing piece on the topic of Chickens. We have drawn and labeled a chicken picture, started our “can, have, are” chart.  We will continue working on our  informational writing next week. It has been very fun to use Non-fiction books on chickens and educational videos to learn more about chickens to help us with our writing.

Dr. Seuss Fun: Oh what fun was had when we explored the beloved author Dr. Seuss!  We explored 10 Apples On Top, by building partners of 10.  Also, exploring Oh The Places You’ll Go we made our own hot air ballon craft with where we would go.  Then, exploring Bartholomew and the Oobleck we experimented with our own Oobleck to see if objects would sink or float.  We had fun with our Green Eggs and Ham inspired snack.  We will continue to celebrate Dr. Seuss this month, also knows as “Reading Month!”

 

Star Student: Our next round of star student activities will start next week.  Be sure to be on the lookout for this information coming home soon for your Kindergartener over the next month.

Conferences: Our Spring Conferences will be held Monday, March 13 – Wednesday, March 15 from 4:00 p.m.-8:00 p.m. Conference time reminders were sent home  with your child. Please let me know if you will not be able to attend conferences or if you have a conflict so that we can reschedule. I can’t wait to share your Kindergartener’s progress with you!! They are AMAZING!!!

Tomorrow I will NOT be in school.  I have an all day reading conference that I will be attending with other teachers in our building.  I forgot to tell the Kindergartners…..ooops!  I usually like to tell them ahead of time when I will be gone, but it completely skipped my mind today.  

Please remember that when a sub is in our classroom they don’t get emails from you and may miss seeing a note.  If you have a change in plans for your Kindergartner tomorrow PLEASE call the office at 797-9797 to let them know so that the secretaries can alert the sub for our classroom.  

It’s hard for me to be away from the Kindergartners….I will miss them tomorrow!!  Please tell them to have a great day and be the amazing listeners I know they can be!!

February 20 – 24

Popcorn words: had, bad, and, get.  We talked about the short a vowel sound and short e sound by reading some easy reader books that the Kindergarteners got to bring home.

President’s Day:  We started our week by celebrating President’s Day on Monday.  We learned about President Lincoln and President Washington and why we celebrate them.  The Kindergarteners made their own President Lincoln and President Washington double sided figures.  The students received their own easy readers and also got to make their own hats, write with a feather (what the presidents used to write) and sort coins.

Math: This week we worked with partners to help build partners that make up 10.   We  learned about Math mountains.  The Kindergarteners are also beginning to explore 2-D and 3-D shapes.  Noticing the difference between these two kinds of dimensional shapes.  We are continuing our practice of adding and subtracting as well.  Every Friday the Kindergarteners love to play Math games that help us practice the weeks skills.  We are really becoming amazing Math magicians!!

Reader’s Workshop: This week we learned about a new reading strategy buddy, Picturing Penguin.  Picturing Penguin teaches us to picture the words that we are reading in our mind.  We practiced this all week by listening to a chapter book, Mercy Watson to the Rescue by Kate DiCamillo.  The kindergarteners pictured in their minds and even drew on whiteboards what it might look like and then compared what the illustrator drew on the pages. Below they drew what it might look like when Mercy pictured pancakes piled high to the ceiling.  They are becoming amazing readers!!  I am so proud of them!!!

Michaela with our picturing penguin pal.

Split Lit. :  This week we have been working hard on many skills.  We have been continuing to practice our lower case letter writing.  We will finish our handwriting book next week and be able to bring it home.  The Kindergarteners are also working hard on learning their sight words with word work at their split lit. stations.  Writing their words, practicing them with partners or a teacher have all given them practice with these words to help them know them in a snap.  Thank you for all of your help with practicing their F/A sight words at home.  I can see so much growth with many of them!

Writer’s Workshop: We have been working on our How-to writing genre.  The Kindergarteners LOVED learning how-to make their own sight word bottle.  They all had a chance to make their own and write their own How-to make a sight word bottle book.  We will continue to work in this genre a couple of days next week and then begin a new Non-fiction writing genre.

Mystery Reader:  Our birthday girl Alyson jumped up with excitement when she saw her Mom and Dad walk through the door as our Mystery Readers!  Mr. and Mrs. Herczak read us two great books.  Mrs. Herczak read us Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin.  We definitely all said we loved tacos but don’t want to serve them with hot salsa or those dragons might get upset and burp fire!  Mr. Herczak read us I Love Cake!: Starring Rabbit, Porcupine and Moose by Tammi Sauer.  We loved how Moose ate the whole cake he couldn’t help that the cake fell in his mouth!  Then Moose made his friends another cake to share.  Thanks for visiting and reading to us Mr. and Mrs. Herczak.   If you would like to be a Mystery Reader feel free to sign up on the side of our blog or email me at jstutz1@hpseagles.net directly to set up a time.  I can be very flexible with time to accommodate your schedule.

February 13-17

Popcorn Words: who, not, map.

Valentine Party:  We started our week off with our fun Valentine Party.  Thank you to the amazing volunteers who helped by volunteering their time or giving supplies.  The Kindergarteners had a blast!!

Social Studies:  We started a new geography unit by reading the book,  Me On the Map.  The Kindergarteners are learning about the different parts of a map.  The Kindergarteners will continue to work on this next week as well.  We will explore our own classroom, bedroom and begin to make our own Me On the Map books.  A Social Studies Homework came home Friday.  The Kindergarteners are asked to complete a map of their bedroom.  This homework is due Monday, February 20.

Math: This week we continued working in Unit 4. We worked on making teen numbers, telling math stories, showing unknown partners using different materials and started learning about greater than and less than. The Kindergarteners are really starting to become experts at reading our math sentences. On Friday they enjoyed our fun Math centers practicing the weeks math skills by playing some fun math games.  They compared chocolates, made number sentences with valentine pictures, played a missing partner game and made numbers with play dough.


Writer’s Workshop: This week we continued to work on our How-To writing.  It has been fun to hear all the different How-To ideas that the Kindergarteners are working on. From How-To feed a little brother to How-To ride a scooter.

Reader’s Workshop: We are continuing to build on our reading stamina and using our reading strategies. We have been able to stay in one spot, read our books quietly, read the whole time and get started right away…all of the steps of being a “super star reader!” When we are reading during this time we use our blue book boxes and have a collection of sight word books, books of our choice and good fit books inside it to pick from. Good fit books are books that are at your child’s reading level.  We added a new reading strategy Kit-Cat Connector.  Kit-Cat connector teaches us to make connections to what we read.  Making connections to books by making connections of experiences we have had, other books we have read and to the world around us.


Mystery Reader:  Friday we were treated to Mr. Santana as our Mystery Reader.  Cruz gave his dad a big hug when he saw him come through the door.  Mr. Santana read us 2 stories, Pete the Cat: Construction Destruction and Pete the Cat: Robo Pete.  The Kindergarteners made connections to our playground and the playground Pete was building.  They said they were happy our playground was safe and fun just like the one in the book.  In Robo Pete we loved how Pete the cat learned that even when his friends want to play something different it’s more fun to be with them rather than to make a robot who gets out of control.   Thanks for reading to us Mr. Santana!!

5th Grade Buddies:  We got to visit with our 5th grade buddies from Mrs. Burdis’ class this week.  They came and read us a book they picked especially for us from the library.  We love getting to spend time with our buddies and having them read to us.

Conferences: Everyone should have received a  conference appointment paper last week. Please let me know if this time does not work for you so that we can reschedule. I am excited to share with you the progress your child has made!! Spring conferences will be Monday, March 13 – Wednesday, March 15.

DUE:  EMPTY WATER/POP BOTTLE DUE MONDAY, FEBRUARY 20.  We will be making a special sight word bottle on Monday as part of our How-To writing series.  If you have not sent in an empty water/pop bottle thank you!   PLEASE send one in on Monday.

Spring:  Our Spring like weather has brought the great melt to our playground.  It is now VERY wet and muddy on our playground.  Please continue to send boots, snow pants or even an extra set of pants or socks in your child’s backpack.  As much as we try to remind our Kindergarteners to stay away from the “lakes/puddles” and muddy areas it is something that does happen sometimes.  I do let the Kindergarteners skip the snow pants if they stay away from the messy areas.  They have been pretty great about listening to the playground rules and staying dry.   We are definitely LOVING these sun shiney days!!!

 

Upcoming Dates:
