This week in English Language Arts Kindergarten continued reviewing all the phonetical knowledge we acquired since the beginning of the second semester. We have been practicing the letter sounds, consonant blends, our sounding out strategies, and little tricks such as the Magic E. We are becoming better readers and writers day by day!
Our sight words of this week were; me, my, up, down.
In Maths, we have been revising our 2D, flat, shapes in preparation for next week’s new topic!
Finally, we began a new unit in Science. This month we will be learning about Matter and its states. This week we learned how to classify matter intro three most common categories; liquid, solid, and gas. And we observed how matter changes its states by carrying out an experiment. We examined what happens to water when we place in the freezer and when we place it on a sunny windowsill. The result were quite shocking!
This week during English language arts in Kindergarten we started reviewing our second last Jolly phonics workbook! We now know almost all of the letters, letter sounds, digraphs, and consonant blends. Hence, reading and writing are becoming easier and easier to us!
The sight words that we learn weekly are also making us better readers and writers! This week we learned another sight words quartet; him, her, will, come.
In maths we have been consistently mastering our Addition and Subtraction skill, and remembering to look out for the plus and the minus.
This week in Science we have been finishing off our Energy unit. We went on a Heat hunt around our houses to see where the temperature is affected by energy.
Lastly, with the beginning of a new month we started a new unit in our Social Studies lessons. In May we will be focusing on Maps and Globes. So this week we learned what are maps and how to read them. To put that knowledge into practice we used a map to find treasures hidden by Pirates.
It’s been a really fun and exciting week for our class!
This has been another short week for Kindergarten. Nonetheless Kindergarten students were very busy learning!
Once again, we have introduced three new letter sounds in English language arts this week. This time they were /ch/ /sh/ and /th/. We have also been working on our sight words as usual. This week’s sight words were: this, that, big, not.
In Maths we have continued practicing subtraction or taking away.
In Science we have been looking more closely at different energy sources and their effects. We spent some time looking at how energy affects sound and played music using cups and water to experiment on that. We also experimented with light and its sources and created shadow puppets for a hands on activity.
What a week we had in Kindergarten!
This week we spent a lot of time researching and practicing Subtraction with Five little monkeys jumping on the bed! We have many excellent mathematicians in our class who instantly grasped the very difficult concept of subtracting or taking away! Bravo!
In English we have introduced and practiced three new letter sounds: /y/ /x/ and /ch/. Our sight words of the week were: she, he, said, no.
In Social studies we have continued learning about Earth and Environment. This week in honor of Earth day we talked about what actions we can take to better care for our planet. We discussed the three R’s: reduce, reuse, recycle.
During this short week we have completed quite a lot of schoolwork in Kindergarten!
We have started our new Science unit on Energy. To familiarize ourselves with that topic we learned about Energy sources and built a Solar cooler.
We finished finished revising Jolly phonics workbook 6 and are ready to start number 7 and learn new letter sounds next week! We have also learned four new sight words; he, she, and, like.
Finally, we listened to Five little monkeys jumping on the bed by Eileen Christelow as a hint to what our new Math unit is going to be!
