This Week We Are Learning (1/14):

Reading- This week we will focus on the following Target Skills: blending phonemes, identifying final sounds, reading rate, classifying and categorizing sensory words, understanding the author’s purpose, using text and graphic features, visualizing as we read, and identifying and using capitalization and punctuation in a sentence. We will also be working to identify the letter Ff and its corresponding phoneme, /f/. The high frequency words are: “you what” (Please continue to practice reading and identifying all of our High Frequency Words at home.) 

Religion- In this chapter the children will learn that Jesus is our teacher and helper.


Math- The children will work with counters and other manipulatives to separate small number groups and record the results of simple subtraction problems.

Social Studies- We will finish talking about Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Science- This week we will explore solids and liquids.  




Happy New Year and welcome back to school! I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas and a fun week off with family and friends. Now it’s time to continue our Kindergarten journey and finish the remainder of the school year with a bang.
