ELA: We are moving right along with Fundations and ready to begin Unit 3. We will continue to blend and read three-sound (CVC) words with an introduction to nonsense words. We will also begin spelling CVC words and introduce many new high frequency words (sight words) for reading. These sight words are not tapped out and need to be memorized. We will continue Unit 4 Winter Wonders, with our exploration of nonfiction texts about animals that hibernate and polar animals.
Math: In math our youngsters will be working on a variety of concepts, including, composing and decomposing numbers to 10. We will learn to show numbers in other ways by joining or taking apart sets of objects to make a number.
Social Studies: In social studies this month, our kindergartners will be learning about Presidents’ Day, Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, Chinese New Year, and Valentine’s Day. We will also focus on how to be a positive influence.
Science: Our Science 21 unit will continue to focus on the physics of pushes and pulls. The students will continue to explore how objects move in the world around us. They will continue to discover how objects are affected when a force is applied to them.
