Happy Spring!  Spring fever is in full effect in kindergarten! We have enjoyed getting fresh air at recess in the playground and paying close attention to the signs of spring. 

In Religion, we will be focusing on how we learn about God with our friends, how God choose Mary, and how God the Father gave us Jesus.

In math, we will be finishing Topic 10: Compose and Decompose Numbers 11 to 19. We will also begin Topic 11: Count Numbers to 100. We will also begin Topic 13: Analyze Compare, and Create Shapes. We will be comparing both 2D and 3D shapes and making shapes using other shapes.

Reading and Language Arts, we will continue to review letters and letter sounds. We will be working on the following letters and sounds: j, x, u (sort u), v, z, and q. We will also work on rhyming words and syllables. We will be learning the following high-frequency words: said, was, where, come, play, any, down, her, how. We will be also focusing on what folktales, fairy tales and poetry is.

In writing, they are doing such a great job writing their own sentences, spelling words phonetically. We will continue practicing writing letters with correct letter formation. We will continue to write more simple sentences using high-frequency words we have already learned and CVC words. It is VERY important that the students are practicing all their high-frequency words at home.

In Social Studies, we will continue talking about jobs from now and long ago. We will focus on jobs in the community and how jobs have changed from long ago and how they are the same.

Please continue to check Google Classroom for reading assignments. I will continue to assign reading for the children to record via Seesaw at home.
