    K Grade Highlights December 2022

     

    December was a month of sharing family traditions and holiday fun!  Throughout the month, the children were involved in a Gingerbread Man book study.  We read many different versions of the book and compared them.  We celebrated the holidays by playing with dreidels and decorating gingerbread houses.  Thanks to our class captains, Mrs. Ferrara, Mrs. Feldman, Mrs. Buonomo, and Mrs. Cole for all their hard work organizing these events.  

     

    Kindergartners were excited to meet the rest of the letter people. They learned about the sound each letter makes, read their poems, and improved their fine motor skills by coloring and cutting out the puppets.  In writing workshop, the children were hard at work during our 'Writing for Reasons' unit, exploring writing stories using kindergarten inventive spelling as well as making lists and cards.

     

    In science, the students are learning about what a scientist does and realize that they are scientists, too!  They share their observations in their science notebooks. 

     

    Thank you to all our wonderful parent volunteers.  We could not have accomplished our fun celebrations and events without your generous donations of time and supplies.  We look forward to a new year filled with many more fun and meaningful learning experiences.  Wishing you all a happy and healthy new year!

     

     

     

    Kindergarten Grade Highlights

    October 2022

    Kindergarten is off to a great start!  The children have made a wonderful adjustment and have been busy making new friends and learning about rules and routines.  We conducted several lessons on safety,  including fire safety, bike safety and bus safety.  The students have enjoyed listening to many wonderful stories in the classroom, including The Kissing Hand, Miss Bindergarten Gets Ready for Kindergarten, and Chrysanthemum.

     Kindergartners have also been learning color words, number words and nursery rhymes this month.  They are noticing the changes of the season around them, as we welcome in fall.  The children are learning numbers 1-5 as part of our EnVisions math program, Topic 1, Numbers and Numeration.  They are beginning to write in their Writing Journals.  This promises to be a fun and exciting year!

    November 2021

    We have continued to see our kindergartners blossom! We are working on beginning reading and writing skills, and we are zooming through the alphabet as we meet The Land of the Letter People. In addition, students are learning sight words which will help them become stronger readers and writers. In math, we completed Comparing Numbers 0 – 10, using math vocabulary such as greater than, less than, and equal. We are starting the next unit, Classify and Count Data. In science, students are exploring the 5 senses. We have also focused on the recent holidays including Halloween, Election Day, Veteran’s Day, and Thanksgiving. The children are having fun and learning each day. We are so thankful to be spending time with your children.

     

    January

    December was a month of sharing family traditions and having holiday fun. The kindergartners celebrated the holidays by learning about Hanukkah, Christmas & Kwanzaa. Throughout the month, children were involved in a Gingerbread Man book study. We read many different versions of the book and compared them. They practiced their artistic skills by illustrating 2022 calendars, which they gave to their parents as a holiday gift. They had fun decorating their own gingerbread houses in class. Thanks to our class captains, Mrs. Taglia, Mrs. Kapadia, and Mrs. Chiari for organizing donations, and to all parents for providing lots of decorative candy. In January, we made New Year’s Resolutions and learned about Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. As always, we talked about working to achieve our goals and striving to be the best we can be by showing kindness to others.
