Classroom News

Thank you for visiting our webpage!

Kindergarten is working hard and we are learning to be good friends and helpers to one another.

We have been attending Mass weekly, practicing our prayers, and reading Bible stories.

Students are making nice progress with letters, letter sounds, sight words and decoding words. We recently began our fourth reader.  The theme is “Then and Now”.  We are learning about how things have changed (technology, cars).  We are also learning about life during the Colonial period in our Social Studies/Listen Unit called “Colonial Towns and Townspeople”.

In math we are working on counting, skip counting, looking for patterns, addition and subtraction! We are using the strategies of counting objects, using a ten frame, and using a number line to help us add and subtract.  You can help your child practice at home by counting to sets of objects (coins, buttons, pieces of macaroni).   Some children are ready to start memorizing addtion and subtraction facts.  Flash cards work well for this. We are also doing some measurement activities and learning about 3D shapes.
