March Minutes

It was another great week in kindergarten--although the kids and I were disappointed to have indoor recess several days due to rain. Hopefully next week will be dry and sunny!

In math, we are working on counting, putting groups of numbers together (the step before formal addition), graphing, and counting back. In reading, we had loads of fun with Little Red Riding Hood. We focuses a great deal on describing the characters in the story. We also acted the story out, which is always a hit with the boys and girls!

There are so many great things happening, it is impossible to share them all. But please be aware, the quarter is ending soon--we will have several assessments before Spring Break. Report cards will go home in April, after the week off.

Have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day...may the luck of the Irish be with you!

March Musings

March has been a great month for Room 201. The students are showing off all that they have learned. I could not be prouder of them. They have been working so hard. Each day we are practicing our letter sounds and sight words. This week we started to focus on consonant blends. We have included them in our daily message--blending words, such as slam, trap, plug, step. The boys and girls are picking up this skill quickly. Great job!
