This week we will be continuing to work in Unit 4. We will be focusing on teen numbers and equations. We will be working on identifying cubes, addition and subtraction equations, and starting our teen number book. There will be homework on Friday this week.

Writer’s Workshop…
This week we are continuing Quarter 3 writing! We will be learning about general vs. specific details, writing big words in our stories, using transition words. We are becoming writers and it is so exciting to see!

We are going to finish our unit on Transportation this week! We are also going to be starting our Word Families unit this week!

Star of the Week…
We enjoyed learning about William last week. William’s favorite animal is a cheetah and he is good at coloring. When he grows up, William wants to be an artist.  We will have our next Star of the Week next week due to the short week.

Don’t forget!

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!
