This Week

Letters of the Week: K-P
Words of the Week: and, we, I, see
Reading Focus: We are reading Growing Pumpkins by Melvin Berger and lots of fiction and non-fiction stories about apples and the plant life cycle. We are also reading stories about the five senses.
Comprehension Focus: We are learning to make inferences and identify the difference between fantasy and realism in stories we read.

Writing Focus: We will practice forming letters correctly, using the D'Nealian style of writing. We are writing facts we learn about pumpkins, and labeling pumpkins.
Math Focus: We are learning basic counting and number identification skills with numbers through 10.
Science: In kindergarten, science is often integrated into our English Language Arts curriculum. For the next couple of weeks, we are studying the life cycle of plants.
Social Studies: This month we are learning about making new friends and what makes us special.
Theme Question: How do I use my five senses?
