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

ELA: SuperKids!!! We completed Unit 9 for the Letter "Jj." We identified the letter and the sound it makes, completed different activities in our workbooks, and read and listened to a Jack and Jill poem and Tac's Bunk Bed . We are practicing our reading to prepare for first grade!! In addition, we learned what dialogue sentences are. We also wrote and drew about different rhyming word pairs. We completed a worksheet where we filled in the missing words for sentences from the story. We reviewed our first thirty sight words: I, am, the, little, a, to, have, is , we, my, like, he,, for, with, me, they, you, of, are, SuperKids, no, Supernoodle, one, two, three, four, five, put, go, and here. We also learned a new sight word: said. 

Math: We reviewed what we learned this year during our Morning Work and Free Choice Centers.  

Science: We read and completed a Scholastic magazine about rainbowfish. We also read The Rainbow Fish and compared the book to the magazine. We learned that fish live in the water, have a backbone, called a vertebrae, have fins to help them swim, and scales to help them breathe. We reviewed the difference between fiction and nonfiction. We also watched two videos to help us learn.

Social Studies: We learned about Memorial Day. We read and listened to Memorial Day and watched a video on Discovery Education to help us learn about this very important day.  

Religion: We read a booklet about Tammy Toucan. We learned that if Tammy Toucan can do something, we can, because we have God, Jesus, and Mary to help us!! 

We also continued our May and Changes books, practiced our handwriting, planted with our 8th Grade Prayer Buddies, and made a Memorial Day craft. We are having so much fun!! :)
