Students will be working on becoming avid readers this month. We will be reinforcing good reading habits. Students will set goals for themselves and set out on becoming experts through the reading of All About Books. Through reading multiple books on the same topics, students will be able to notice the similarities and differences between the books.
Students will be writing all about books on topics that they love. We will be brainstorming the people, places, and things that the students know a lot about. Students will learn to use specific nonfiction words that will support their understanding of nonfiction texts. Some of these words include: some, all, many, most, and few. Students will select to write about one topic at a time and then they will be encouraged to tell each fact across their five fingers. Students will make several books in a week. They will be encouraged to start a new book if they are stuck on one book over several days.
This month, students will be working on understanding, representing, and solving addition and subtraction problems. Students will also working on practicing writing the numbers from 1-10 and counting to 100.
We will be focusing on learning about Families. Some of the concepts we will be learning about are that families are important, families are diverse, families share in celebrations together and they come together to solve problems.
This month students will be working on planting. Students will be planting seeds and naming the parts of the plant. Various experiments will be done to determine the needs of plants. Students will also sort seeds, name the different kinds of fruit, and graph their favorite fruits and vegetables.
Music and Movement:
Students will be preparing for the Bengali New Year by learning several Bengali dances and songs.
Kindergarten students will be working on some of the skills needed for playing the sport of basketball. They will be learning and practicing how to dribble, shoot, and pass a basketball. Please make sure your child is wearing sneakers every day for all physical activities.
