Kindergarten Monthly Updates: January
In Language Arts the letters we are focusing on this month are v, w, y, x, z and q. We continue to develop reading comprehension in whole and small group lessons by naming characters, the setting, the problem and the resolution in fictional texts. We practice writing in Daily Five stations and during Writers Workshop.
In Math we will practice composing and decomposing numbers to 5 using concrete objects, dot images and story problems. We will reinforce skills previously learned in Guided Math Stations. We will explore magnets using a variety of hands-on activities and experiments in Science.
In Social Studies we will explore why people have jobs in our Community Helpers Unit. We will also learn about the vital contributions of Dr. Martin Luther King.
