As teachers, we read to your children a lot! We gather important information and strengthen the students’ listening, vocabulary, and speaking skills, along with many other positive skills.

It is essential that you read to your child as much as possible. Reading has such wonderful benefits; including building positive relationships with your child, improves language and vocabulary skills, improves a child’s imagination and concentration, teaches them about the world around them, and reading is just plain fun!!

In ELA, the students are focused on answering questions about characters and the feelings of those characters. They are listening to and comprehending some very advanced stories. Through this, they are strengthening their vocabulary and comprehension skills.

This month, we are working on chapter 7 of Go Math! Students will represent, count, and write 11 to 19. The NYS Common Core State Standards covered:

K.CC.A.3… Know number names and the count sequence.

K.NBT.A.1… Work with numbers 11-19 to gain foundations for place value.

• We will be focusing on modeling and counting to 11-15

• We will be writing 11-15

Practicing daily fluencies in math is essential to help children think at higher levels. Please work with your children every night to help build automaticity in their basic math facts. We will be sure to engage the children in activities that help take their knowledge of the basic facts and apply them to complex problem solving scenarios. Our Kindergarteners are doing well, as we move through the Kindergarten math curriculum.

There are formative assessments that are done throughout the lessons to make sure we see who may need some extra support. All teachers also give chapter pre , mid, and post assessments. We are able to focus our instruction for whole class and small groups based upon the results. During class time, we write about various math topics. We also use the problem of the day to challenge our children on various topics. The problem of the day is a daily activity that is helping build strong math skills in our children.
