Kindergarten News!!
Welcome to Kindergarten 2018-2019!!!! We are busy learning, playing, and praying in kindergarten!!!! Here is what we have learned so far:

ELA: SuperKids!!! We continued and finished Unit 3, where we reviewed the Letter "Gg"for Golly!! We made Golly's Book of Sniffs, read and listened to Gregory's Green Goggles, created a Letter "Gg" tongue twister based on the story, and completed other activities having to do with the letter. We took our first assessment to see what we learned about the Letters "Cc" "Oo" and "Gg." We then read and listened to another book about Golly and learned our next letter, the Letter "Aa" for Alf!! We learned about Alf and how he likes to go on adventures but does not like ants!! We circled Letter "Aa" pictures in our workbooks. We also reviewed our first four sight words: I, am, the, and little. 

Math: We continued our unit/chapter on three-dimensional shapes. We reviewed that three-dimensional shapes are not flat like two-dimensional shapes. They pop out at you and are solid. This week we learned about cones, how to differentiate between two and three-dimensional shapes, how to model shapes, and our first two positional words: above and below. 

Science: We read and listened to From Seed to Pumpkin and learned the different stages of a pumpkin's life cycle. We learned that this is something that happens over and over. 

Social Studies: We read and listened to Community Helpers from A to Z. We learned that a community is a place where we live, go to school, work, and play. We learned about different community helpers and what they do. We also watched a video segment on EdPuzzle and completed a writing piece where we wrote what we want to be when we grow up and drew a picture to go along with it. 

Religion: We completed Unit 2. This week we learned how God created our senses and we read our take-home storybook Just Like Me! 

We also continued to practice our letters in our handwriting books, continued our October books, attended mass with our school, where we prayed the Hail Mary in Spanish with our 8th grade prayer buddies, and made a pumpkin life cycle craft. We are having so much fun!! :)
