We have had a great first 13 days of school! We have had Ms.Hannah Hopper from Lindsey Wilson doing her practicum student teaching in our classroom. Ms. Hannah has been a great help to us as we have worked on learning our routines and procedures for the year. Ms. Hannah will be leaving us now and beginning her first student teaching placement. We will miss her but know she will do an excellent job!
Our school is working hard to become a Lighthouse School through The Leader In Me. As a result, our kindergarten class has worked very hard to learn the first 2 habits. Habit 1 is "Be proactive. I'm in charge of me." Habit 2 is "Begin with the End in Mind. Have a plan.' Ask your child to tell you about these first 2 habits, what they are really mean, as well as show you the hand motions for them.
In the coming weeks, we will focus on Habit 3 which is "Put first things First. Work then play.' as well as Habit 4 which states "Think Win-Win. I win, you win, we win".
Our reading focus is letter naming and letter sounds and also beginning to recognize the color words as sight words or as we like to call them "popcorn words".
In math, our focus is on counting and number recognition.
