Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a terrific holiday and are ready for all the wonderful things to come in 2019! After the holiday break, the Kindergarten students are back to working in small and large groups, centers, and getting ourselves back into the school routine. This month we are working on simple addition and subtraction using a number line, writing sentences, adding new vocabulary from the reader, and learning about penguins! Our word of the week is: this and the letter of the week is Bb.
Here are some fantastic facts about penguins. The students used the Montessori moveable alphabet to write their sentences.
After learning how to use the number line, the students had fun using an app on the Ipad which reinforced the skill of adding using a number line.
We read the story Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. We created our own snowy day scenes using cotton balls and chalk!
As the year goes on, the boys and girls will get chances to read aloud to the class! The rest of the class made a terrific audience!
