We have been working so hard in reading, writing and math in Mrs. Renee's
kindergarten class!! We have been adding for the past two weeks and today we
started subtraction!!! I was worried about doing subtraction right after
addition but I think it is going to be fine. Some reading groups are doing
blends and digraphs (bl, cl, tr, gr, th, sh, ch, etc.) and some groups are doing
short a and short i word families. We have introduced over 50 words and many
children know them all plus a lot more!! Everyone is writing sentences in their
journals every morning.
We have read about the first Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims and Native
Americans. We have also learned about the Mayflower that the Pilgrims came over
in to America.
We will have Thanksgiving break for the entire week next week (November 25-29)
and school will resume on Monday, December 2, 2013. Then we will begin our unit
on the gingerbread man.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!
