We have a lot going on the next couple of weeks so please make sure to mark your calendars for all of these fun events! As a reminder, our class will be tie-dying t-shirts on Monday during our P.E. class. Please make sure to send in a rubber banded white t-shirt so your child can participate. Animal reports are also due on Monday so don't forget to return the written report as well as the diorama to school. Thanks!
We are kicking off Catholic Schools Week with a school wide world rosary. The classes have been divided up to wear different colored shirts to represent different regions of our world. Kindergarten has been assigned yellow. This Friday, January 26th, your child may wear a plain yellow t-shirt instead of their uniform shirt. The shirt may not have any words on it. This is not mandatory, just for fun, so please do not feel like you need to go buy one if you don't have it already at home. For a schedule of the rest of the activities happening during Catholic Schools Week (January 29th-February 2nd) please see the following link:
Here is what we will be working on in K1 this week:
Reading: This week's reading lesson is all about science and testing ideas. We will read the stories Dear Mr. Blueberry and What is Science? The sound we are learning is /i/ and we will be really focusing on hearing the sound in the middle of words. As mentioned in my email on Friday, we have six new sight words this week. Please practice the following words at home with your child to help them to master them: is, of, many, how, so, where.
Religion: The students will hear various stories about the Miracles of Jesus this week. The ones we will really focus on are Jesus' first miracle where he turned water into wine as well as the miracle for many when he fed the 5,000. We will also learn how some of the apostles were able to perform miracles as well. This week we will also begin practicing the parts of the mass. As a school we are working to improve participation in our school masses and that starts with teaching them in kindergarten. Please encourage your child to participate and learn the proper responses for mass when you attend as a family. Thank you for your support on this.
Math: We will begin the week by taking an assessment on our comparing sets chapter. Our new chapter is about calendar patterns and we will work with the days of the week and months of the year. We will assess on this chapter on Friday.
Thank you and have a wonderful week,
Miss Lauren Cordier
