10/29 – 11/2

Fall Party:

Popcorn Words:  in, all

Readers Workshop:  This week we learned about feelings and emotions.  We looked at character’s faces to see how they might be feeling.  We practiced doing this as a group using one of my favorite books, I Was So Mad by Mercer Mayer.  We then got to try it on our own and marked pages in our books with sticky notes.  We then shared our marked feeling pages with our reading partners.  We found lots of emotions in books!

Math:  This week in Math we used pennies to show groups of 5 and then some more.  We also used pennies to make numbers larger than 5.  Making groups of numbers that were equal and not equal.  The kindergartners LOVE using our pennies in our Math practices!!

Writers Workshop:  This week we started to practice writing like a scientist.  We looked closely at objects this week with magnifying glasses to zoom in and find details of objects.  We looked at our shoe and a leaf this week.  Being careful to draw every detail we could see.  We will continue writing like a scientist this next week as well.  

Literacy:  This week we finished up our Fall Houses and practicing different literacy skills with them.  The houses and directions came home with your kinder this week.  Another resource you can use to practice many different literacy skills at home. 

Mystery Reader:

  • Emery was so thrilled when she saw her Mom walk through our door as a Mystery Reader.  Mrs. Straub read us one of her favorite books when she was a little girl, The Berenstain Bears and the Bad Dream.  A great story about how sometimes dreams can be scary but not real.  The kinders loved how sister ended up teaching brother bear all about bad dreams.  Thanks for visiting with us Mrs. Straub!

Book Fair:  Our Book Fair will be open all week during conference times.  You can feel free to purchase books on conference nights.  Your kinder will also get to “preview” the book fair and make a wish list to bring home and share with you.  We will have an opportunity to buy books on Thursday, Nov. 8 if you wish to send money in with your child along with their wish list.
