Our math curriculum is Everyday Math.
Each day students will work with math tools to count, pattern, compute, pattern and measure. We practice these skills often through games.
This week, we're learning about some of our math manipulatives.
Reading & Language Arts
Our reading curriculum is Houghton Mifflin.
Students will work on story elements as a whole group. This week we're focusing on predictions.
Then through Daily 5, students will work on reading at their own pace.
Some of our new high frequency words re at, on, off and to.
Each student will work in a small teacher-directed group as well as conference individually each week.

Kindergarteners explore the world around them.
Science topics include: tools, 5 senses, trees, seasons, simple machines, fabric & animals. Through these units students will interact with adults from our school. We also venture into our community to learn about the world around us.
This month we're focusing on our School Tools.
Kindergarteners will build a strong foundation for reading and writing through the FUNdations program.
FUNdations topics include: rhyming, segmenting, blending, letter names and sounds, high frequency word fluency, story comprehension, as well as writing.
We will begin by meeting our FUNdations friend Echo the Owl. Watch for Team Coach packets to come home!
