This week we worked on short letter Uu. We honored Dr. Seuss by readi ng and writing about our favorite Dr. Seuss books. Writ ing our opinion is a kindergarten standard that we have been working on. We continued to observe our plants grow. The key vocabu lary word is: observe, which means to watch or look at something closely. We are recording our observations in our plant journal. When students bring home their plants please replant them. We ar e hoping t hat students will have the opportunity to "observe" the bean plants flower and grow vegetables in the ~mmu.
In math, we continued our work on subtraction. The key vocabulary words for this week are: take away, are left and decompose. This is typically a more difficult topic in math. Please spend a few additional minutes with subtraction practice if your child needs it. Also, students will be expected to add and subtract fluently within 5. We now have supervision on the playground before school. If you would like to encourage independence in your child, please feel f r ee to say goodbye at the gate and leave. If not, you are more than welcome to wait. Reminders: • March 12th_14th: Conference Days: Minimum days for students. ALL KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS ATTEND SCHOOL 8:0011:20. • March 24th_28 th : Spring Break • April 18th & 21st : School holiday Follow us on Twitter: @maryteachesk • Spring SCARF donation ends March 21. Help us get to our goal of 111 Ibs of cat/dog food. One pound for every kindergarten student would help many animals in need! • Classroom donations needed: Whit e copy paper and Kleenex. Thank you! Teacher Trivia: Mrs. Elledge has one pet fish from the county fair, Mrs. Monachello and Mrs. Wong have three cats, and Mrs. Reece has two big dog. Thank you, The Kindergarten Team
