Happy New Year!

One Word

As we returned from a restful break and entered 2019 we discussed choosing one word to show how we want to live, learn and play in the new year! Kindergarteners found such unique and fitting words to represent their focus as they entered the new year. Ask your Kindergartener what they chose as their “One Word” for 2019!



Kindergarten readers were thrilled to continue building their non-fiction reading skills during Reader’s Workshop this week. They practiced using the glossary to find out the meanings of unknown words, identifying interesting things with post-its, and sharing interesting parts with partners. Readers noticed that when looking at non-fiction books they found real pictures, diagrams with labels, bold words, and facts & information that are true.


Math Fun

This week in math Kindergartners have been learning about comparing. Kindergartners have been comparing sizes of objects and problems using terms such as fewer than, same as, and more than. Kindergartners used math cubes to build sticks to compare with their pinch partners to see which one was bigger and which one was smaller. We also learned how to relate “more” and “less” to length.
