This week, students learned the sound l makes and the two sounds c makes; the hard c sound like in cat and soft c sound like in celery.
Sight Words: You, me
Students completed two more sight word books they added to their book baskets. Have your child search for the sight words you and me in books you read to them!
In writing, students have begun labeling their pictures. We learned that labeling makes it easier for a reader to understand the message we are conveying.
Ms. Carla and Ms. Kelsey visited us this week and taught us how to write capital D and P. Remember when your child is writing at home to reinforce starting their letters at the top!
This week in reading we read several nonfiction stories about the famous Johnny Appleseed. As a class, we charted facts we learned from the stories. We also illustrated our favorite fact in our writing journals! Did you know Johnny Appleseed's real name was John Chapman? Did you know he did not like to wear shoes? Did you know that it is a tall tale about how Johnny wore a pot on his head? Your kindergartener can tell you these and many more fun facts. On Thursday, we celebrated Johnny Appleseed day by making our very own hats.
We also added a new poem to our poetry folder about Johnny Appleseed:
Here comes Johnny Appleseed,
Apple seeds are all he needs.
Planting apples on his way out west.
Wears a pot upon his head,
Beneath the stars he makes his bed.
Folks say Johnny's apples are the best!
We are using our poetry folders to practice fluency and tracking words as we read. The students love looking through their poetry folders during Read to Self and Read and Relax.
October 7th is our fieldtrip to Chatfield Hollow. This will be a fun morning of learning about plants and their uses in preparation for our Harvest Celebration.
October 10th is an early dismissal. Students will be dismissed at 1:30.
