Our young mathematicians are learning to use their math manipulatives to count and sort. Students are learning to count up and back down to zero through games and activities. Students learned what a ten frame is and how to use it to create tricky teens and to begin simple addition. This week kindergarteners used buttons to sort by color, shape, and size. Students created and extended color patterns with a partner and then independently. Ask your kindergartener what their favorite math activity was.
Kindergartners are learning what good writers do as they use pictures and words to write stories from their life. Young writers have been busy writing across several pages. Students are brainstorming topics that interest them or things that they know a lot about. Writers are brainstorming ideas in order to keep writing more and more. Stay tuned for this great work!
Each morning, Kindergartners gather on the carpet to learn more about themselves and our classroom. They practice using eye contact to track the speaker and using their “loud and proud” voices. Students are finding friends with similarities and differences during these games. How many friends can your child name?
