Our class raised $300 for the Arbor Day Foundation Rain Forest Rescue Fund! Great job class! This is the most a kindergarten class has ever raised and everyone participated this year. I am so proud of you all!
We will be learning about Valentine's Day and President's Day. We will be reading the book WILL YOU BE MY VALENTINE? in class and picking a name at random of a classmate to make a special Valentine for, as the main character does in the story. We will also be learning about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln whose birthdays we celebrate this month.
Our featured author for February will be EZRA JACK KEATS. This will tie into a study of Black History Month. We will be reading the following books in class: WHISTLE FOR WILLIE, THE SNOWY DAY, PET SHOW, GOGGLES, PETER'S CHAIR, LOUIE, and HI CAT! 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 R, N, and M. We will be reading stories called LET'S GET SET, THE BOSS, and THE HUNT. We will be practicing writing in our journals. Please remember to always review your child's books with them when they come home for reinforcement.
Please practice word lists that are sent home in your child's folder.
There will be a Reading Test on the letters N and M in early March.
In Math lessons, we will be counting and ordering numbers to 20.
There will be a Math Test on Chapter 8 the first week in March.
In Religion lessons we will be learning St. Valentine and what it means to belong to the Catholic Church.
