January 2022

We have made it through that magical month of December and are back on track for January!

Religion: In religion this month, we will begin Chapter 8: God Made All People. Students will learn that God made all people good and that God loves all people.

Reading: We will continue to work in Unit 2 on Weeks 4 Informational text, and 5 Persuasive text. Students will continue to review nouns and learn about adjectives, and verbs. Blends we will focus on include: dr, fl, sp, fr, cl, nt, mp, sk, lk, and nd.

Writing:  In writing, we will continue to work on writing sentences using our knowledge of letter-sounds and sight words. We are focusing on beginning each sentence with an uppercase letter, using “meatball” spacing between words (“spaghetti” spaces are the spaces in words), and ending the sentence with the correct punctuation mark. We will be using the words: first, next, last, to write an informational text.

Math: We will begin Topic 13:  Analyze, Create, and Compare Shapes.  Students will be working with 2D flat shapes including the circle, square, rectangle, triangle, and hexagon.  The 3D solid shapes include the cone, cube, sphere, and cylinder.   Students will be discovering how various 2D shapes can fit together to create other 2D shapes.  We will also be looking at the 2D shapes that are parts of the 3D shapes.

Science: We will begin the chapter Matter and Mixtures.  Students will be learning about the properties of liquids, solids, and gases.

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 chapters 9: God Made Us and 10: God Helps Us Discover. We will talk about how God made all of us special and how we use our five senses to help us discover the world.

In math, we will be starting working on Topic 13- Analyze, Compare, and Create Shapes and Topic 5- Classify Data where we will put objects into categories and count them to compare the groups.

In Reading and Language Arts, we will focus on the following letters and sounds: Gg  /g/, blends, Ee /e/, Ww /w/, and Yy /y/. We will also continue to learn new high-frequency words: four, five, here, go, from, yellow, blue, green, what. The children should be practicing all of the words at home. We will also continue to learn more about Informational texts and Persuasive Texts.

In writing, we are going to start 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 National Symbols. Some National Symbols that we will learn about are the flag, Statue of Liberty, the bald eagle, and the White House.

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