Canon Ink #210/211 - This is for our BIG end of the year Kindergarten Memory Book project which requires MANY MANY pages of printing per student.  Any help is much appreciated!!  Thank you!!

What Are We Learning This Week?:

Sight Words: THROUGH, TOUGH, ENOUGH, AROUND.

Letter Team: 
 
GE/GI (the soft sound of G which sounds like J, like in GENIE and GIRAFFE) and OUGH (makes the sound OO like in THROUGH and UFF like in TOUGH). 

Reading:
 We will continue to read many books turkeys and pilgrims and Indians, as we prepare for Thanksgiving. 
We will practice all of our reading strategies learned so far. Students will continue to read their self-selected good fit books and paper books from their book boxes. 

Writing:
 We have been discussing ways to make our writing more interesting by adding detail sentences that are on the same topic. Instead of writing, "I like my friend." everyday, we now want to ADD to that writing. For example, "I like my friend. We sit at the green table together. We love to play tag at recess."   

Math: 
We will review everything we have learned in math this week. Please continue to help your child at home with everything we have learned: addition, geometric shapes, counting by 5's,counting by tens, counting money and telling time to the hour, learning how to identify, order, and count numbers to 30 and write numbers to 10, learning the days of the week, months of the year, shapes, how to read and extend patterns, counting ordinally, and identifying what number comes next.  

Leadership: BENEVOLENCE.
