Welcome to Kindergarten
What a fantastic start to the school year. We have been busy building our classroom communities and learning about the expectations all while showing our Prairie Pride! We are so proud of our young learners. Our Kindergarteners are coming to school ready to learn and have been building their independence each day.
We have learned the four Skills for Learning: Voice Quiet, Eyes Watching, Ears Listening, and Body Still. We practice these skills throughout our day to help our brains grow.
As readers, we have learned that letters make words and words make sentences. We count the letters and the words. We also have been paying close attention to details within the pictures to help us read the words.
Our authors will soon begin to write to pattern books and will transition into narrative writing later this month.
As mathematicians, we have focused on learning to write numbers and count quantities and will continue to build on these skills this month. Everyone is enjoying the new Science curriculum! It is so fun to test and then try again. We will be looking very closely at the weather this month.
It has been a pleasure to get to know all of our kindergarteners, and we are looking forward to a great year!
