The week in review - September 16

It was a very busy week in kindergarten.  We did MANY things.

Here are some photos of our learning:

First is our morning messages from the week.  The morning messages are used to teach many literacy skills and to share information about learning activities we will participate in during the day.  We also use the messages to review content from previous studies.

 Morning message from September 12.

Morning message from September 16 (It says September 17 and I fixed that before the students arrived)

In social studies, we talked about qualities that make us unique.  Here is a photo of a poster that helped us define some characteristics.

We have been writing to demonstrate our learning.  In this modeled writing piece, we shared information we have learned about goldfish.  We are practicing using resources in the room to spell words and also sounding out words we don't know yet.

We read a book about a snake named Jake. He was lost and couldn't find his mom.  After reading, we retold the story and talked about how his emotions changed throughout.

We continued our study of numbers by rereading the book 10 Apples Up On Top and completing an activity where we counted apples (counting cubes) and put them in order on our animals' heads.

 Our days are very busy in kindergarten.  Sometimes we forget to take pictures because we are so busy.  In addition to seeing photos on this site, remember to check your child's backpack for papers that will show what your child is doing in class.  

Have a great weekend!
