Week in Review:
This week was our first five day week in kindergarten! We are continuing to learn and do so many things and also stressing the importance of acting out of AMOR (love) for our friends and everyone around us.
I have loved taking our our Bibles and reading the story of Creation. It is a blessing to be surrounded by God’s handiwork as one day we enjoyed Bible outside!
In phonics we worked on recognizing letters. Each student received a bag of lower case letters and sorted them in different way. Some spelled names, other noticed that some letters had straight lines and some had curvy lines. It has been great to become familiar with letters!
We have been building our Stamina in Read to Self. The class helped me decide on what they needed to do to become better readers. Here is the list. 1. Read quietly. 2. Read the WHOLE time. 3. Stay in one spot. 4. Don’t disturb (or bug) those around you. I also reminded them that there are three ways to read a book. This has been helpful in making the most of our reading time. Our big goal is about 12-15 minutes and this week we made it to 6! We are doing great!! Once we are comfortable independently reading (reading pictures, words and retelling the story) we will work on another element of Daily 5.
We also worked on telling stories with our fingers and looking for the beginning, middle and end. It was fun to hear some of their stories;)
Finally we are using stem bins at our tables now when we finish our work and jobs and it has been so much fun to see their creativity as well as their ability to work together to create some new and amazing jobs!
