This Week in Kindergarten
February 27th - March 3rd
Read Across America Flyer
This week in LA we will continue to move forward with our SuperKids unit on the Letter Uu while celebrating Dr. Seuss and Read Across America Week! It will be a busy week!! Many Thanks to all the guest readers who were able to sign up - we're looking forward to having you!! This week will be filled with lots of rhyming activities as well as Memory Word practice, beginning/middle/ending phonics work and some independent reading with our Beanie Baby buddies :-)
This week in math we will continue our focus on place value (tens and ones). We will especially focus on teen numbers with students identifying that a teen number is one ten and some ones. For example: The number 13 is one ten and three ones. We will also continue to review Numbers to 120, addition and subtraction daily.
This week in religion while completing an outreach project called "Sending Smiles" and learning about our next Bible Hero, Abraham, we will turn our focus to the season of Lent. We will have several Lenten activities this week and will attend Ash Wednesday mass with our 8th Grade buddies at 9:00 on Wednesday. There will be no mass on Friday. Older grades will gather in church on Fridays for Stations of the Cross. Throughout Lent grades PK-2nd will have our own Stations of the Cross every other week (beginning next week).
This week in social studies we will continue to work in our US Symbols unit. This week we will continue our focus on the bald eagle (our eagle family in Iowa has laid eggs!) as well as the Statue of Liberty and the Liberty Bell.
