January Activities

Tree On Top Of The World.png

January is Rain Forest month in Kindergarten.  We will be reading books, making art projects, and learning songs about the rain forest. We will also be earning money at home to help save the rain forest.

Our featured author for January will be Janell Cannon. We will be reading the following books in class: Stellaluna, Verdi, Crickwing, and Pinduli. Please look for these books in the library, bookstore, or in the Scholastic Book Club flyers that are sent home every few weeks.

In Reading lessons we will be studying the letters H, U, B, and R. We will be meeting the final Superkid named Hot Rod. The Superkid's will then be forming the Superkid's Club. Please remember to always review your child's books with them when they come home for reinforcement.

*** Due to the uncertainty of snow days/delayed openings in the winter, it might be necessary to delay test dates.  Test listed will never be given earlier than the date, but may be given a day or two later.  Please be sure that your child is prepared by the date posted.  

Please practice word lists that are sent home in your child's folder.

In Math lessons we will be adding numbers to 10. 

In Religion lessons we will be learning about the Holy Family and comparing the Holy Family to our families.
