Happy New Year!

It is hard to believe that Christmas and 2017 is behind us.  It is time to think about all the fun and wishes we have planned for 2018.   

In religion we continue to talk about all of God's creations and all the gifts God provided us.  We always talk about what would Jesus do in certain situations and how we can be more like him to make the world a better place.  We will start to get ready for Catholic Schools Week which is the last week of January.

We continue practicing writing our names making sure the letters touch the lines they are suppose to. We also are remembering that our names start with a capital letter and the rest of the letters are lower case.  For the new year we will start to learn to write our last names and remember that it starts with a capital letter as well. 

We are well in to our literacy series and are starting to blend the sounds of the letters they know to form some words.  We are also remembering that the sound can be in the middle or ending of a word and not always at the beginning.  So far the letter sounds we have been working with are C, D, G, L, S, O, A and just introduced the letter I.  Although the vowel letters make two sounds we are only focusing on the short sound, the long sound is introduced to them but not focused on until 1st grade.    

In math we are working on the numbers  one through 10.  We continue to decompose the numbers to find hidden partners that make up the numbers.  6 = 4 + 2, 3+3, 5 +1.  4 and 2 are hidden partners etc. We continue to learn that the numbers can be represented in different ways as well as learning the terms 1 more or 1 less.

We are moving along with our sight words - I, am, can, like, see, no, the, and, we, to, at, go, in, on, a, my, me.  Our next words we will be adding to our list are: will, be, was and are. We continue to work on different activities through out the week that helps them to retain and recognize the words in print.

In science we will be starting a winter unit.  We will focus on what animals do in the winter. 

In social studies we will be discussing different U.S. symbols.

Please remember to check the class page weekly to see what other fun and exciting things our going on in Kindergarten!
