Kindergarten Week of June 4th

We have reached the last month of school. We have started to celebrate the children who have summer birthdays in the class. This Thursday is career day. We are looking forward to learning about what many of you do. This week Italian ices will be sold on Tuesday for $3.00. The money raised will support a special needs camp. Next week Mrs. Peiser will be having a gently used book sale on Tuesday and Wednesday. All books will be 50 cents.
For math this week, the children will learn to count, model, and write the number 20.
In reading this week our concept is, stormy weather. The essential question is “How can you stay safe in bad weather?” The main story this week is Waiting Out the Storm by Joann Early Macken and illustrated by Susan Gaber. The vocabulary words that we will be discussing are prepare, safe, enough, celebration, and notice. This week we will be reviewing the sounds for the letters R, B, and L.
This week we will focus on the short o sound. Some short o words are pot, top, dog. When children see three to four letter words with short vowels sounds they should be able to recognize the word right away. On Friday, we will have show and tell. Please bring in an item that has the short o sound.
Our sight words for the week are “that” and “there.” Please ensure that you are reviewing these words at home daily with your child. This week on Friday, the children will have a spelling test. This week the five-spelling words will be 1) that 2) there 3) with 4) little 5) on. Please practice sight words daily. It will help your child to improve their reading.
This week in social studies, we will be talking about Flag Day. Every year Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th. We will learn how over the years how the flag has changed.
On Monday we will have physical education. Tuesday, we will have music, art, and Espanol. Wednesday, we will have library. It will be our last week of library. All books will need to be returned this week. If they are not, you will be charged for the book. Thank you to all the parents who have volunteered to read.
Sacred Heart Catholic Academy is always collecting box tops for education. Please remember to cut the box top off items. When you get a bunch please send them into school. It helps our school earn money. Thank you for your support.
