What We Are Learning in Kindergarten!
April is here! This month we will be celebrating and honoring Earth Day.  Our character trait is compassion. We will be talking about how we can show compassion towards the people around us such as our friends, family, classmates, teachers, etc. 

Math- In math we are learning numbers to 20. We will practice counting, writing, and reading our numbers. Our focus is on 'teen' numbers. We are also working on counting forward from a given number. Please don't forget to continue working on addition/subtraction fluency at home!
 
Literacy-  Our new unit theme is all about holidays and celebrations.  Our essential questions is, "Why do we celebrate people and events?" We are reading informational texts to help us understand holidays in the United States. We continue to work on learning our sight words, letter sounds, and writing complete sentences.

 

     Our STEAM lab is now open! We go to the lab every Wednesday. There is a center for math, engineering, art, technology and science.
