January 25th - 29th

 

This week some of our kindergarten students took a break from our regular reader and worked on reading Snow, by PD Eastman.  We looked at some challenging vocabulary and some rhyming words!  We have snow on the brain!









Using a number, the students worked on subtraction.  We understand that when we add, our answer gets larger and when we subtract, the answer is smaller.  I'm very proud of the students.  They continue to work very hard.






Keeping with our theme of snow, the students wrote sentences using the Moveable Alphabet.  We chose winter words from our chart and used them to write a phonetic sentence!  Way to go!









SOCK DRIVE!

    Our Pre-K and Kindergarten students are in charge of organizing school-wide drives.  Our first drive will be a sock drive.  We will be collecting socks for the organization called, The Joy of Sox.  The drive will run from Monday, February 1st - Thursday, February 11th.  We will be collecting NEW men's, women's and children's socks.  Please keep the socks in their original packaging.  There will be boxes in school to collect the donations.  You can view our promo video here.
