January Class News


Math- We will review using number lines, making shapes with templates, following patterns, counting by 10's and working with attribute blocks.  We will also begin learning addition and subtraction facts.

Reader's Workshop- We will continue to use our Reading Super Powers to read independently and with a partner.  We will use what we know about patterns to help us read books. We will explore the different types of pattern in books such as seesaw, question/answer, opinion, and reason patterns.  We will find out that some pattern books have a "twist" at the end. Writer's Workshop- We will write our own pattern books.  We will use what we are learning about in reader's workshop to create our own books. We will write seesaw pattern books, opinion, question and answer and repeating pattern books! We will plan out our books and write about topics we know and like to read about! Students will get introduced to the kindergarten dictionary too!
