Week of Nov. 3-7

Turkey Time is Around the Corner!


Our focus this week was the letter Dd and our heart words were 'we', 'me', and 'no'. Please continue to review all of our heart words and color words with your child. Your child also turned into a little detective, while searching the room for "D" things. Check out our class website and the photo tab to see your child in action!


In writing, we discussed being alike and different. Our writings focused around comparing and contrasting ourselves to a peer in the classroom. We continue to work on finger spacing, stretching out our words by listening to the sounds we hear, and adding ending punctuation.


In Math, we worked with 10 Frames and different ways to make groups of 10. We also continued our work with shapes and discussed the attributes of shapes. Your kindergarten child needs to understand the difference between a 2D and 3D shape by the end of the year along with recognizing the basic shapes.
