"Being Kind - Sharing"

It has been a wonderful first two weeks in kindergarten.  I decided to spend another week of fun reading and math activities before we start our actual curriculum.  So this week we spent quite a bit of time working on sequencing with such wonderful predictable books as The Napping House, There was an Old Woman who Swallowed a Fly, and If you give a mouse a cookie. We've also worked on number writing and identification by playing "Where's the Bug Hiding behind the Rug?"

Next week we begin with:
Math:  Recognizing numbers, representing numbers, and counting numbers.

Reading:  Focus letters are -k, l, m, n, and o. We  will work with rhymes. Make Way for Ducklings is a wonderful book full of rhymes that we will use.

High frequency words:  I

Religion:  The overall theme of our wonderful religion books is:  We are made in the image of God.
This week we will be learning about the holy trinity and continue practicing making the sign of the cross.

If time permits we may get a visit from "Professor Molly Cule" who will have the children experimenting with popcorn or maybe balloons.
