I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!  We will be getting right back into the swing of things in kindergarten. Students will be receiving their first report cards this month!  We will be working on skills to ensure first grade readiness from here on out, it will be here before we know it!

In Religion, we will be focusing on chapter 9: God Made Us, chapter 10: God Helps Us Discover, and chapter 11: We Learn About God with our Families. We will talk about how God made all of us special, how we use our five senses to help us discover the world, and how we can learn about God with our families.

In math, we will be starting working on Topic 14- Describe and Compare Measurable Attributes, Topic 5- Classify Data where we will put objects into categories and count them to compare the groups, and Topic 6: Understand Addition.

In Reading and Language Arts, we will focus on the following word families: et, ed, ug, ut, ip, it, ig, and in. We will also continue to learn new high-frequency words: not, hot, got, mom, want, yes, let, red, get, ten, tell, well, but, cut, run, put, did, sit, him big, six, will, have, give, live. The children should be practicing all of the words at home.

In writing, we are going to continue writing sentences and use the letter sounds we know and sight words we have learned. We will also be working on making sure the sentences start with a capital letter, the letters in the words are written in lowercase letters, sentences end with a punctuation mark, and the words have finger spaces between them.

In Social Studies, we will be learning about Martin Luther King, Jr, and start learning about Canada for our multicultural fair in March.  

Please work on independent skills at home, such as zipping coats, tying shoes, and following multi step directions.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me at jgrondin@saintstansschool.org
