ACADEMICALLY

In LANGUAGE ARTS we are taking a short break from our SuperKids friends. Of the twelve, we have now been introduced to Cass, Golly, Oswald, Alf, Doc, Sal, Lily, and Icky. Soon we will introduce our 9th friend and letter. In the mean time we have jumped into the kindergarten sight words. These are 52 words that our students are learning to read and write; these are commonly used words that young children are encouraged to memorize with little to no decoding.

The first ten sight words are (alphabetically): all, am, are, at, ate, be, black, brown, but, and came. Children wrote each of these words (handwriting) and many came up with sentences using the words. We will continue learning additional sight words this week.

In MATH the students continue to learn about two digit numbers. They are practicing writing the numbers, counting the numbers and comparing the numbers with other numbers. They are learning and using the math phrases “greater than, less than and equal to”.

In RELIGION we have been focusing in on the season of Lent.  We began by celebrating Ash Wednesday. We joined the whole school in participating in the mass virtually at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC. We then walked to the church and received ashes on our foreheads.  We wrote about our experience and discussed the importance of trying new behaviors during this important church season. Kindness, patience, and honesty were several that came up in conversation.            .

In ART with Mrs. W. we were able on learn more about storytelling and puppetry. Even online with Zoom, students showed their enthusiasm for creating their own puppets with materials found at home. Many enjoyed not only making the characters into puppets but trying out different voices for the characters. Goldilocks and the Three Bears and The Three Little Pigs were quite popular. Other kids very creatively placed themselves in one of the stories. A+ for student enthusiasm and creativity!!

RESPONSIBILITIES

The kindergarteners are learning the importance of FOLLOWING DIRECTIONS! I know that the idea of routines and schedules are so important for kindergarteners (and teachers!). But sometimes we need to be flexible and learn to do some things differently. This past week we had a couple of days where the students were asked to pull out the extra papers that were sent home IN CASE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER. The majority of the children found them in their homework folder. However, many said that they were at home. Prior to sending these papers home we had reminded the kids to simply leave them in their homework folder.

Since the lessons were scheduled during their regular times, we went ahead and taught them. Unfortunately, the kids who did not have their papers had to look on. We realize that this is a rare event that happened but a good reminder to all of the children to listen to the teachers’ directions. WAY TO GO to the many children who did just that 🙂

GOD BLESS,

Mrs. Walthour

Well, I tried to post this picture onto our school website but seemed to have lost it along the way! So, here it is…just me and the snowman 🙂 ENJOY!
