Coming up this week! {11/13-11/17}

Welcome back for the fifth week in 2nd Quarter! We have a lot of exciting learning to look forward to this week!

Behavior Goals…
Our classroom and hallway behavior goal this week is “the power of yet.” Our lunchroom goal is “to talk to my shoulder partner.”

Literacy
We are starting Unit 4! This unit is entitled, “Around the Neighborhood!” Our essential question is “What do people use to do their jobs?” We are going to continue practicing the ABC chant each day. We will be learning letter Oo this week. Our high-frequency word this week is you. Our vocabulary words are: equipment, uniform, utensils, expect, & remained. Our category words this week are job words. Our grammar skill for the week is adjectives (describing words).

Math
This week we will be continuing in Unit 3. We will be focusing on partners of 5 and 6. We will work on partners through 6, addition and subtraction stories, and more groups of 10. Your child will be bringing home their math homework folder on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this week. Monday and Friday will just be a Family Letter. Please be sure to have your child complete their homework and return it the next day.

Writer’s Workshop…
This week we are continuing Quarter 2 writing! We are going to be working on how our voices sound when we read punctuation, using capital letters, reviewing spaes between words, reviewing conventions, and writing words we know by heart. We are becoming writers and it is so exciting to see!

Integrated…
We are going to finish our Weather and Seasons unit this week!  We will learn all about temperature, severe weather, and so much more!

Star of the Week…
We loved learning about Elliett last week! Elliett’s favorite animal is a pig, she is really good at art, and she wants to be a construction worker when she grows up! We are excited to be learning all about Leah this week!

Don’t forget! Library days this week are Monday and Thursday!

We have so much to learn and look forward to this week! Thanks for partnering with us to make this a successful year in Kindergarten!
