What's New in Room 131!!
Happy New Year and Welcome to 2018!!!
I hope everyone is staying warm and cozy. We continue to be very busy in kindergarten as the new year begins!! We are adding a new section to our Daily 5. It is called, "Read to Someone". The children have been asking to read to their friends and now they will have the chance to on a daily basis! I am so proud of how well behaved everyone is during our "Intervention Block" in the morning.
I also noticed that everyone has been practicing their sight words!! We are now half way through our required kindergarten list!! When you master the yellow packet let me know and I will move you on to the green packet of words. Thank you all for you cooperation in reading and practicing sight words. This really helps to improve a child's reading fluency.
We have moved on to teen numbers in math. We are also focusing on "partners of numbers" which leads into addition and subtraction. Do you believe that we cover all of this information in kindergarten!!!
I have one more very important announcement to make..... Staring this Friday we will be going outside to play at the end of the day. Please send snowpants and warm clothes in your child's backpack every Friday. If they are completely dressed they can play in the snow. If they do not have snowpants, boots and gloves they will only be able to play on the blacktop. It is much more fun coming completely prepared!!!
Have a great week and stay warm!!
