Coming up this week! {2/10-2/14}

We have a lot of fun learning to look forward to this week!

We are starting Unit 7 this week! Our essential question is “How are some animals alike and how are they different?” Our letter of the week is Uu. Our high-frequency words for this week are for & have. Our vocabulary words are: appearance, behavior, exercise, wander, & plenty. Our category words this week are animal pets. Our grammar skill for the week is verbs (past-tense, present-tense, and future-tense).

This week we will be continuing to work in Unit 4. We will be focusing on teen numbers, partners, and comparing. There will be a Family Letter coming home on Wednesday this week.

Writer’s Workshop…
This week we are continuing Quarter 3 writing! We will be working hard on sentence fluency, quality work, and transition words. We are becoming writers and it is so exciting to see!

We are going to continue our unit on Weather and Sun this week!

Star of the Week…
We enjoyed learning about Olivia last week. Olivia’s favorite colors are pink and purple and she wants to be a teacher when she grows up. We are excited to learn about Max this week.

Don’t forget!
–Library day this week is Wednesday!
–R.E.D. folders are due on Friday!
–Our Valentine’s Party is on Friday! Students may bring their Valentines starting Monday. I will store them until we pass them out on Friday during our Valentine’s party.  A couple of reminders: please have your child write their name only, only non-edible treats are permitted, we have 23 in our class. We will be making Valentine’s bags to take our things home. You will not need to provide anything for this.

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!
