Math: The Kindergarten students have been working their way through Unit 5 learning many new skills along the way! We have discussed things such as shape attributes, combinations of 10, our teen numbers and even the addition and equal symbol! We encourage you to have mathematical conversations at home and keep up the great practice with the Math Fact Flashcards to build Fact Fluency!

Reading: Students are wrapping up their Pattern Book unit and moving into Informational Reading! We will be reading all about the world around us and studying Nonfiction texts. Students will learn so much new information throughout the unit. The readers will be researching and discussing their findings in class. We cannot wait to learn about new topics alongside the Kindergarten readers!

Writing: The Kindergarten authors have become EXPERTS on pattern books! They have done a fantastic job creating MANY different patterns within their writing and even trying out twist endings! The authors are now moving on to writing How To books. They are going to learn all about teaching their readers “how to” do something new! We cannot wait to see what they teach us! :)

Science: Our Kindergarten scientists will be investigating Measurement and Forces & Motion. Students will engage in a wide variety of activities to gain an understanding of these fascinating topics.
