Week 22

                        &n...

Welcome to week 18 of kindergarten! I hope you enjoyed you the extra day off this week to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Our students will be introduced to Martin Luther King Jr. and the beliefs he had and shared with the world. Students will discuss and write about how they can make their school, home, and community a better place for all. We will read books about Martin’s life, his actions, and what beliefs he wanted for all people. We will do a perseverance activity whole class around the Oasis campus. Students will be sent on a scavenger hunt with Ms. Kelly that will take us back and forth from one end of the school to the other several times. As we are walking back and forth, back and forth Ms. Kelly will talk with the students how it’s frustrating that we are being sent back to the other side of the school that we were just at a bit ago. Ms. Kelly will ask the class if they should just give up? A discussion will be held on how to problem solve and persevere during times of disappointment or frustration. Our new unit for math this week is introducing students to the numbers 10-19. Students will need to be able to read, write, produce, and understand the place value for each number. This will be a 2 week unit. Alternative homework on the teen numbers will be sent home for the next weeks. You can have your child do one page of the alternative homework, instead of doing IXL. HOMEWORK: 10 minutes of math-1 page or IXL. 10 minutes of reading-sight word practice, read paper books, read poems in binder, or any books of your child’s choice. MAPS testing report: All kindergartners completed the Reading MAPS assessment last week for winter 2019. It was a 44 question computer test that measured how well each kindergarten student is doing so far this school year in their English language arts skills. They will take the assessment again in the spring to compare growth. Students were presented things they have been taught, as well as things we have not yet learned. So please take the scores and percentages your child has received with a grain of salt. Remember this was the first computerized assessment your 5 or 6 year old has ever taken by themselves. I will reference the scores for teaching purposes, but know what your child can do in small group or 1-1 with me.
