February 20th - February 25th

Welcome back after a long weekend! I really enjoyed getting to visit with you about your kindergartner. They are doing such great things in our classroom and it is exciting to share. Spring break is right around the corner and we have a lot to accomplish before that week.

This week in reading we will...
  • Meet Zeke for letter /z/
  • Draw a prize
  • Meet June and her mule for the sound /ue/, / u _e/
This week in math we will...
  • Continue to work on partners of 10
  • Work with more and fewer
  • Make tiny tumblers. This is a way to see and work with addition.
Monday was also President's Day and this whole week we will be reading and writing about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington. I was gone Monday morning and the substitute read a TIME for kids about the presidents and they filled out a KWL about presidents; what I KNOW, what I WANT to know, and what I LEARNED. Later this week we will make an Abraham Lincoln writing craft.
