Can you believe we are already in week 6?! We are really getting in our kindergarten groove! We had such a blast at our Kindergarten Family Sports Day and now this week we are diving into learning. In science, we have been learning about seasons and most recently, the season of spring! This week we focused the life cycle of butterflies! We put the events in order and we made our own!
In reading, we are reading "Clark the Shark" and learning about characters and how characters can change in a story. We are still learning to read and write our numbers in Math. Today, we did the number 10!
Our afternoons are jam packed, but we always have snack and play towards the end of the day. The kids are loving their snack time and being able to play with the toys in the classroom or dance along to a gonoodle! We are truly LOVING Kindergarten!
Just like that, week 4 of Kindergarten is done! This week was little crazy because I was out sick for 2 days, but luckily the kids had great subs and still got all their learning done. We read "The Art Lesson" and talked about what we are excited about during school. We also just finished our first chapter in Math and the students got to show what they have learned with an assessment and they all did SO WELL! We have been learning many of our letters and letter sounds and on Friday we got to use our whiteboards to play a phonics game. Also on Friday, we got to paint with our water colors during Art time! We had a blast! Even though this week was a little more chaotic, it was still fun and full of learning!
Another successful and FUN week here in Kindergarten! This week, the students got to check out library books for the first time. They enjoyed their time with Mrs. Moyer and finally being able to check out their own library books. Speaking of books, these kindergarten students are learning some reading components such as retelling, problem, solution, and opinion. We read "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day" this week, and the kindergarteners did AMAZING with all our new components!
I am so proud of how much they have grown in these first 3 weeks of school. They are making new friends, and growing stronger bonds with old friends. I can't wait to see them grow even more this year! I hope they are loving Kindergarten as much as I am loving teaching it! Happy FRIDAY and enjoy the weekend!
