Ms. Annie's Kindergarten Class
by Miss Annie K.
What is the best holiday when you are a Kindergarten student?
We have had lots of discussions about what to be for Halloween. We have decorated our room with Halloween art. We have been working daily on some ‘Day of the Dead’ masks. Thank you Patti for providing the masks. Everyone wants to know how many days until our party. Lots of candy will be eaten, and probably lots of tummy aches. We love Halloween anyway. Our party will be Thursday at 2:30pm. We get to dress up in our costumes after lunch.
In Reading we have learned a few letters, and we will keep learning more every week. We have a “letter and word of the week”. Ask your child, “What is the letter or the word this week?” They also need to know the sound the letter makes. They do a lovely performance every Friday to show off their new letter and word skill.
In Math we have worked with numbers to 10, and we will start exploring teen numbers in the next unit of our book. All of the kids count to 10 daily, and can even count in Salish to 10.
Next month we look forward to a trip to the library in Missoula, and to Thanksgiving and the break we get with the holiday. The first Kindergarten birthday is also in November.
As I am writing this, we have been in school 41 days today. The first quarter will end November 1st. I cannot believe how much they have grown in just 41 days of school. No lost teeth yet, but we have some loose ones. I will keep you posted.
