Kindergarten ~  January 2017 Newsletter 


We would like to take this opportunity to wish all our kindergarten families the best for a wonderful, bright New Year!  We hope you enjoyed the holidays. 

ELA:  We are ready to begin Unit 2 in Fundations with an introduction to CVC words and a review of the capital letters.  We will be working to identify the beginning, middle and ending sounds in words.  In reading and writing, we will begin Unit 3: Telling a Story and learn how to retell familiar stories.  We will focus on telling the events of a story in order, how the beginning, middle and end of a story are different from each other, and discuss character traits.

Math:  In math our youngsters will be working on a variety of concepts, including, comparing numbers to 10 and measurement, with continued practice writing numbers. 

Social Studies:  In social studies this month, our kindergartners will be learning about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks, and their contribution to our nation.  Equality, respect, freedom and other pertinent social concepts will be important topics discussed this month.

Science:  In science, we will begin Unit 2 with an introduction into the physics of pushes and pulls.  Our young scientists will learn how different magnitudes (strength) of force effects how objects respond to that force.  These concepts are familiar to most kindergarten students because they interact with forces every day.

Here are some important dates to remember this month:

Martin Luther  King  Jr Day (No School)                                        Jan. 16th

PTA After School Activities Registration (6:15pm-7:30pm)       Jan. 23rd
