Kindergarten News September 13-17

We have had an exciting week in kindergarten. We have introduced new centres this week Smart Board,  and puzzles, we continued to play with play-doh, played at the house centre, the tub toys, the light table, and sand centres.  We are learning to make new friends and are excited to talk and share what we have drawn, or created with our play-doh, or made with Lego blocks, etc.

 In literacy we have read the story We All Fall for Apples,  It was a beginning chapter book about going to the farm to pick apples, then coming home and making recipes with our apples.  We began our guided drawing work this week. I can watch art hub for kids and follow directions to draw an apple and a worm.  We read Todd Parr’s book: It’s Okay to make Mistakes.  I can learn from my mistakes and it is always important to try because I will learn something new.   We are beginning to talk and learn about colours.  Friday, we read the story Red is Best, by Kathy Stinson.  We discussed what our favourite colours are and then did our red colouring sheet. 

We are learning how to identify words and track words in our morning poem.  Your child has a green poetry book to share with you each Friday with our poem of the week in it.  Please help your child track the words and share the poem with you. 

Our poem this week was:

Stop! Look! Listen!

Stop!

Look!

Listen!

Before you cross the street,

Use your eyes, use your ears,

Then use your feet.

I can draw Pictures to illustrate words that I am learning to read: eyes, ears, feet.

I can read my poem to a friend.

 In math we are continuing to count forwards and backwards as well as recognizing two-part patterns on our calendar and using body parts.  We are also counting in French. We watched a video about Zero the Hero and discussed why zero was important. 

I can learn  about the number zero and do my math number sheet.  I can also practice the number of the day which was 4 ( four), this week.

 We went to the music room and had music this week.  Our music days are Tuesday and Thursday.  We also went to the gym and practiced moving in a variety of pathways. We also went outside to the ball diamond to practice our running skills for the Terry Fox run on Monday.  Ask your child to share something they liked about kindergarten this week.

Kindergarten News September 6-10We have had an exciting start to kindergarten this year.  We have introduced new centres this week Lite Brite and the drawing centre, we continued to play with play-doh, played at the house centre, the tub toys, the light table, and sand centres.  We are learning to make new friends and are excited to talk and share what we have drawn, or created with our play-doh, or made with Lego blocks, etc.

 

In literacy we have read the story Have You Filled Your Bucket Today?  We drew a picture of things we can do to fill our buckets.  We discussed what a bucket is and how being kind fills not just our bucket but other people’s buckets as well. We read Chrysanthemum and discussed the importance of names and how unique everyone’s name is. We read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and watched the video of the book on the Smart Board.  We read the Story Be You, and discussed how important it is to be yourself.  We are all unique and we all bring something special to our class.

I can draw a picture of myself in kindergarten and write my name.

I can make a Chicka Chicka Boom Boom tree, by cutting out leaves, and gluing pieces together to make a picture.

We are learning how to identify words and track words in our morning poem.  Your child has a green poetry book to share with you each Friday with our poem of the week in it.  Please help your child track the words and share the poem with you.

Good Morning

Good morning, good morning,

School has begun.

Good morning, good morning,

Isn’t it fun.

I can circle words that rhyme: begun and fun.

I can draw a picture of my favourite thing to do in kindergarten on my poem.
