We had a great first week in kindergarten! I have enjoyed getting to know the childen and I especially loved the "All About Me" bags. They did a great job of explaining everything they included in their bag. This week we get into more academics in kindergarten along with our regular Specials schedule.
Our Specials each week are:
Monday- Gym (Children should be in their SBS gym uniform on Mondays)
Thursday- Art and Library/Media
This week in phonics we begin with letters Aa-Ee. We will also begin to identify rhyming words and also learn our first two sight words: I am The children will get their first little reader paper books this week as well. These stories are meant to stay at home for more pracice in sounds and words
In literature this week our first big book is The Little School Bus The target skill this week is identifying and describing characters. The vocabulary with this book are ordinal numbers: first, second third, fourth, fifth and sixth.
We begin our first chapter in math which is classifying and sorting. We begin with learning positional words: top, middle, bottom, before, after, between, inside, outside, right and left.
Our first chapter in religion is learning about Jesus and how he welcomes everyone into his family. We will also pracitce our prayers and blessing ourselves properly.
We will begin a science theme of identifying if something is living or nonliving.
