November Update

Reminders:

  • November 21st-Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast
  • November 28th-December 2nd-Holiday Shop

In Fundations, we finished learning all 26 letters of the alphabet. We are now beginning to tap out short three-letter CVC words and we are putting the alphabet in order from A-Z.

This month, we also started our READ EVERY DAY program. Your children have done an awesome job reading their books at home each night and then returning them at the end of the week. Each time your child successfully reads their book to me on Friday, they get a sticker! It is my hope that this program will help develop your child’s reading skills.

In math, we have been learning about measurement and measurement tools. Ask your child what tool is used to measure time, weight or length.

In Social Studies, we have been learning about Pocahontas and her father, Chief Powhatan. Ask your child if they remember Pocahontas’s new name after she moved to England!

Earlier in the month, we learned about Election Day. We read a book called “Duck for President.” Then, we held a mock election where the students voted for Farmer Brown or Duck for President. Each student filled out their own ballot and they even got an “I Voted!” sticker. We discussed the importance of voting and how elections are important in the United States.

That’s all for now! I am thankful for each and every one of my students this year. Happy Thanksgiving!
