Sneak Peek of the Week
Week 27: March 13th-17th
This week we'll wrap up our study of 3D shapes. Kindergarteners will make a special book about the 3D shapes. Also, we'll continue to explore the attributes of 3D shapes in our small groups. Students will use marshmallows and toothpicks to construct different 3D shapes. This will further our understanding of faces, edges and vertices of 3D shapes. We've had fun singing along to a special 3D shapes song. You can listen at home! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2cg-Uc556-Q
Next week we'll begin Unit 6: Solving Problems. Please read next week's newsletter to view our long-term learning targets for Unit 6.
As you know, each week we focus on a specific letter sound and high-frequency words in Reader's Workshop. At the end of each week Kindergarteners show their understanding of the content on a 3-page assessment. The purpose of this assessment is to check your child's ability to locate sounds in a word, read/recognitive high-frequency words and decode short words commonly found in their books. Please take the time at home to review this document with your child. I'll write brief notes/corrections to help guide your conversations at home. You'll find your child's weekly assessment in the green folder.
