Weekly Update

1/8 – 1/12

Popcorn Words:  at, that.

Math:  This week we got back into our Math routines.  Warming up our Math brains counting by 1’s and 10’s to 100.  We dove deeper into number partners that make a new number.  The Kindergartners were able to identify what number partners make up the number 6.  Exploring that different numbers that make up 6.  Noticing 1 and 5, 2 and 4, 3 and 3 and 6 and 0 are all partners that make up 6 total.  We also explored teen numbers deeper as well.  Noticing ten groups and then some more to make a teen number.  The Kindergartners are learning that a ten frame has ten in it and that a ten stick has ten in it.  These tools are used to make teen numbers.  We had a lot of fun exploring our Math games that had us working on partners, teen numbers and number identification.  

Writers Workshop:  This week we are revisiting our Small Moment writing.  The Kindergartners are learning what makes a small moment story.  Discovering that a small moment story is a single event that has happened to them.  They have also explored that some stories are “watermelon” stories.  These are stories that are too big to write about.  We are learning that we need to pick one “seed” out of that watermelon story to write about.  For example, a watermelon story is my whole holiday break.  A seed story would be one event that I want to share.  An example of a seed story would be my favorite present that I opened.  The Kindergartners have been working with guidance to write this specific story across 3 pages.  Together we have talked this story over our fingers.  First, we sat down to open our present.  Second, we ripped open the paper.  Last, we were so excited!  It was a ___.  The Kindergartners have done a great job revisiting this small moment idea of story writing.  We will continue to build on our skills of small moment writing all month.  

Readers Workshop:  This week we are talking about “Revving up to read.”  What does that mean?  We have been learning how we warm up our brains to read!  We have talked about how readers will follow a few steps before they read a book.  First, they might take a look at the cover of the book and the title.  Then, they might even open the book to take a picture walk, even tell the story in their mind of what they think the story could be about.  Last, a reader will even guess at some of the words they might see in a book.  We practiced using these warming up activities all week.  During readers workshop we would take a look at our books first, take a picture walk and then even think about some of the words we might see in our books.  The Kinders practiced these skills all week while reading/looking at books back to back with their reading buddy during readers workshop.

Mystery Readers:  Ashton was soooo excited to see his Nana and Grandad as our Mystery Readers on Tuesday!!  They are visiting all the way from the United Kingdom!!  They shared with us the book Room on the Broom by Julia Donaldson.  Then they gave all the Kinders a special yummy UK treat known as buttons.  Buttons we discovered are actually chocolate pieces.  We LOVED our buttons!!!  Thanks so much for visiting with us!!!

Take Home Book Program:  Wow!!  Thank you all so much who have gotten on our signup.com volunteer page to sign up to read as part of our Take Home Book Program!!!  I am so excited to begin our program!  I will begin this program on Monday, January 22.  On this day the Kinders will bring home their Take Home Book Bag with instructions inside the bag.  If your child has already been bringing home books, this new book will replace that bag.    I will be testing all of the Kinders before this date to get their most accurate independent reading level.  Each Kinder will receive a Take Home Book bag and instructions on Monday, Jan. 22.

Rainbow Behavior Chart:  After our holiday break we have started to use our rainbow behavior chart as a behavior tool in our classroom.  Our goal everyday is to be on GREEN!!  Sometimes if a Kinder is asked repeatedly to attend to a task or change their behavior then they will be asked quietly to move their individual name clip to yellow.  I always try to catch them quickly making a better choice and then they will get to clip back up to GREEN, ready to learn.  If a Kinder is repeatedly making good choices, listening in a snap then they will be asked to clip up to blue on our rainbow chart (Good Choices).  The Kindergartners have done a GREAT job with this new behavior tool.  We do still use a class clip!  With our class clip we have earned 10 superstars!!!  This earned us a special day!!  

Fort Day:  What is fort day?  We have earned 10 superstars for amazing classroom behavior!!  The Kinders came up with a couple of choices to vote on.  The winner was Fort Day!!  Fort Day will be on Monday, Jan. 15.  We will at some point in the day make forts!!  If you have a thin blanket, or sheet that you would like to send in with your child to help build forts tomorrow, please feel free to do so. You may want to label the blanket with a piece of tape with your name on it.   I will have many blankets that I will be bringing in as well.  I am so proud of the Kinders for making such great choices!!  We have gotten many outstanding awards for our hallway walking and at our specials classes.  

Split Lit. Centers:  What do we do at Split Lit. Center time?  Well, we get to chose from 8 different centers to explore.  The Kinders get to navigate these stations all by themselves!   They can pick from several “word work” activities, listen to books, read to a beanie baby, read with sunglasses on, etc.  They may also get some one-on-one time with Mrs. Stutz or Mrs. Fabbro (one of our K-para pro’s) or Mrs. Elders (one of our K-para pro’s) during this time to work on specific reading skill building.  

Wonderful Winter Centers:  On Monday, Jan. 29, 10:15-11:15 we will be having some fun Wonderful Winter Science Centers.  I am looking for 2-3 more volunteers to help with these fun centers.  If you are available please email me at jstutz1@hpseagles.net to let me know.  I am hoping you can come around 10:05 and we will wrap up at 11:15 a.m.

Chiaverilla.  A GREAT book we loved that taught us all about our amazing state of Michigan!!  She also shared with us a delightful tale about a bunny who wants to be a ballerina.  The book, A Bunny in the Ballet by Robert Beck.

Weekly Update…


Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on December 17, 2017

12/11 – 12/15

Popcorn Words:  it, what.

Math:  This week the Kindergartners explored adding numbers, finding groups of ten in pictures and discovering how the zero disappears in a teen number.  They worked together in small groups to use pennies to show numbers and then taking the ones number to place it over the 0 in a teen number to see how the teen number is made.  Many of them noticed a pattern when we did this.  Discovering that the ones number makes up part of the teen number.  Comments like, “Hey whatever number we add to 10 is in the new number at the end!”

Writers Workshop:  The Kindergartners explored more patterns in writing books this week.   They enjoyed writing a book where the second word changed, The _____ is in the zoo.  They also loved making their polar bear writing craft where they changed the middle word in sentences, I see a ________ looking at me.

Readers Workshop:  We dove deeper into more patterns that we see in books.  Noticing books that have patterns with  a word that changes in the middle.  Also, exploring patterns that have a surprise ending.  An example of a surprise ending was seen in several books we explored.  For example in the book Picnic there was a pattern of mouse finds a _____.  Then on the last page the story ended with Mouse has a picnic!  We learned this is called a surprise ending because it is different than the rest of the pattern in the book.

Gingerbread Man Travel Update:  This week we followed the Gingerbread Man to Canada.  We discovered the landmark Niagra Falls!  The Kinders couldn’t believe how big the falls were!  We imagined being in a boat looking at the falls and looking for the Gingerbread Man.  The Kinders also noticed how the  Canadian flag has red and white like our flag!  The Gingerbread man escaped before we could catch him!!  We then boarded our imaginary airplane and headed to Greenland, the next country he was spotted!  He is a quick little guy!!  The Kinders learned that Greenland is not all green.  Exploring many pictures of the famous landmark, Ilulissat Ice-fjord and all of the amazing animals that live in Greenland.  They were in awe over the amazing ice and beautiful animals in Greenland.  We will keep looking for the Gingerbread man in Greenland and then return to our last country to hopefully catch him next week!!  We also enjoyed a couple new versions of the story, The Gingerbread Man Loose on the Fire Truck and The Gingerbread Cowboy.

Star Student Book Lovers from the last two weeks:

Alaina brought in the funny book Dog vs. Cat by Chris Gall

  • On Thursday Ainsley was overjoyed to see her Grandparents (Mr. and Mrs. Teysen) walk through the door as our Mystery Reader.  Ainsley’s Grandma read us two books.  The Story of Christmas and The Biggest Christmas Tree Ever by Steven Kroll.  The Kindergartners loved these books!  We were also treated to a yummy Christmas tree cookie with a snowman cheese stick and candy cane!!  YUM!!  Thanks so much for visiting with us Mr. and Mrs. Teysen!!

Weekly Update…


Posted by jstutz1 | Posted in Uncategorized | Posted on December 9, 2017

12/4 – 12/8

Popcorn Words:  look, from, run.  We had to look for the Gingerbread man all week!!  He was on the run!!  He kept leaving us messages all week.  He signed them from, GM.

Math:  This week in Math we continued to dive into numbers.  We talked about how when we added numbers together they make a new number.  We call those numbers partners, the partners 3 and 5 can make up the number 8.  Also, discovering doubles that make up new numbers.  For example, 1 + 1=2 or 3 + 3=6.  The Kinders LOVE playing Math games every Friday!  They played a Mitten Match game, where they rolled a dice twice, added the partners and found the answer.  Another game was the Break Apart Stick game, where they discovered the partners that make a new number.  Also, playing a roll and cover game with a partner.  Taking turns rolling a dice, finding the number on their game board and covering it.  We also practiced writing our numbers and drawing an object to match.  I am so proud of their Math progress!!

Readers Workshop:  This week we explored how patterns can help us read.  We looked at how in books there are often patterns in the words on each page.  Discovering many pattern books in our classroom.  We found a pattern book that had the same words on each page but the first word changed each time.  For example,  Giraffes are in the zoo, Zebras are in the zoo, etc.  Also, discovering patterns in sentences that the last word changes.  This pattern might look like: Look at the lemonade, Look at the hamburger, etc.  The Kinders loved adding a pattern book to their blue book boxes that we use during our quiet time and read to self time.

Writers Workshop:  The Kindergartners had a lot of fun writing their own pattern books this week.  We wrote patterns that went along with the pattern we looked at during our Readers Workshop time.  They wrote a books called  I Can ___ and _____ Can Run. One book with a pattern where the last word changes and another where the first word changes in the pattern.  They did an amazing job!  

Literacy Stations:  The Kinders have started to visit two Literacy Stations everyday during our Literacy time.  They work with myself or Mrs. Fabbro (our amazing Kindergarten para-pro) on specific skills to help build reading skills.  The Kinders also work at an Independent station where they practice skills they have been taught.  They practice writing in their journals, practicing their sight words (also knows as popcorn words), listening to books, identifying sounds in words, etc.  They also received a list of words of the first few sight words that popped into our classroom.  We call this reading the rainbow.  Each list has 6 sight words on it and is a different color, as the list grows the colors change and we try to read the rainbow of words in our classroom.  The kinder practice recognizing these words, writing these words and spelling them during our literacy time.  As they master the list then they will receive the next list to practice.  They are so excited about this new task!!

Gingerbread Man On the Loose:  This week we took an imaginary trip with our own passports and tickets to try and catch the Gingerbread Man on the loose!  He is on the loose and traveling to different countries!  We looked for him in France this week. We discovered that is a long way from where we live in the United States.  The Kinders loved looking at the globe to see the different countries there are.  We first looked for the Gingerbread man at one of Frances famous landmarks, The Eiffel Tower.  We couldn’t catch him!!  We also looked at the flag of France.  Noticing that it is different than our American flag.  There are no stars!  However, we did notice that the colors are the same.  Both have red, white and blue colors on the colors.  We will continue to catch the Gingerbread man next week too.  We will visit a new country to find him!!  This has been a fun way to introduce the Kinders to the idea that there are other countries and different symbols that each country has.  The Kinders are also enjoying the many stories of the Gingerbread man!  We have listened to a couple different stories of the Gingerbread man.  Gingerbread Man Loose in the School, The Gingerbread Boy and The Gingerbread Girl.  

Holiday Party:  Our party is in the process of being planned, thank you volunteers!!  More details will be coming soon.  The party will be Thursday, December 21 at 1:50-3:00 p.m.  I am more than happy to welcome you to our classroom party!  We can always use volunteers and the Kinders LOVE having family in our classroom!  

Holiday Program:  Our Holiday Program will be Thursday, December 14, 6:30 p.m. at Harbor Ministries (formerly knows as Fair Haven), 2900 Baldwin Street.  Kindergartners need to be dropped off to me by 6:15 p.m. at our meeting place inside the church.  Our meeting place will be just outside the sanctuary in the “gym area” of the church.  Our Kinders will be attending a rehearsal at the church on Thursday a.m. We will take a school bus to the church and practice the program.  We will leave our school by 10:00 a.m and return by 11:15 a.m. on Thursday morning.  

Winter Has Arrived:  So I have to admit I am one of those, I LOVE THE SNOW!!!  I was pretty excited to see the snow this week!  The Kinders have done a great job so far putting and taking off their gear.  Thank you to bundlers who have started to help us out!!  Please remember to label your kiddos gear.  It helps me sooooo much with missing items and those several pairs of black snow pants that we ultimately have.  I do keep an extra bucket of mittens, gloves, scarves and snow pants available to kinders just in case.  Check out our fun in the snow!

North Pole Ninja Mission:  This week we made holiday cards for our office secretaries and dropped them off ninja style…they were totally surprised!!  The Kinders LOVED this mission!!  We will see what our North Pole Ninja Sensei leaves us to do next week!!

Mystery Reader:  This week Makayla sprung up and ran to meet her Mom and Dad as they came into our room as our Mystery Readers.  They shared the book Good Night Owl by Greg Pizzoli with us.  We loved this cute story!  The Kinders got to help read the story with making the sound of the little mouse….squeek!  The Kinders loved being part of this story telling!  Mr. and Mrs. Fuller even brought us yummy candy canes!  Thanks for being our Mystery Readers Mr. and Mrs. Fuller!!
