Kindergarten & Grade 1 News

We’ve had an AWESOME start to the year in the K/1 room! I am so impressed with these kids and how quickly they are picking up on class- room procedures and getting along as a group! We are starting to get into things a bit. The Grade 1s have start- ed their patterning unit in math and practicing sentence writing in Daily Language. The Ks are taking part in some math pre-testing individually with me and soon we will begin our patterning unit. During play the students built a giant castle out of cardboard, drawbridge and all! They are having a blast parading in and out of it as princesses, queens, palace guard dogs, and knights! In Grade 1 Social Studies we are learning about different kinds of families and in Virtues we are discussing the power of our words and how they can┬ámake people feel good or bad. The Kindergartens have started Animated Literacy with Mrs. McGregor. Information about this will be sent home in the next week. Watch out for a note about our Medieval Feast which will be happening in early October. It was great to see all of the families at the pancake breakfast!
