Kindergarten Newsletter - Nov 2019
Kindergarten students are learning to tell stories across pages. They will look at the pictures to think about how the characters are feeling and why. We are working towards building stamina during independent reading time. They will begin to point to each word as they read in their leveled books. The children are practicing talking about their books with a partner during reading workshop.
Kindergarten students are learning to write true stories. They are being encouraged to use the word wall (sight words) to help them write. The children are also beginning to take risks when writing new words. They say the word they want to write, say the word slowly, and write a letter for each sound they hear.
Kindergarten students will learn how to develop strategies to accurately count objects and record how many they have counted using pictures, words and/or numbers.
Kindergarten students will be able to talk about their families as well as their culture. The students will get an opportunity to share their heritage with their classmates by participating in a family project. Each student will get a paper cut out of a doll, “Heritage Doll” which the students get to dress up to help identify with the student’s culture. They will then share their project with the other students in the class and talk about the different aspects of their culture.
