From Our Kindergarten

Mrs. Duchensky and Mrs. Galluzzi


Hope everyone had a relaxing Christmas Break!   And now that we’re all recharged and ready to go, here’s what’s coming your way in kindergarten:

As we start back in January, we will be focusing on what New Year’s Resolutions are and the importance of making changes for the better. In social studies, we will be learning about some famous Americans who have made a difference in our country.  In math, we’ll be learning how to add and subtract so please be sure to log your child on to Think Central on a daily basis for continued practice at home.  In science, we will be starting FOSS (Full Option Science System), which is a brand new and exciting program to our kindergartners.  Initial topics will include exploring different types of wood, paper and fabrics.  We will continue to practice our journal writing skills each day and improve some kindergarten story writing as well.  Finally, our exciting Daily 5 time will continue during the literacy period, reinforcing independent reading, writing and word work skills while small group reading lessons occur simultaneously.  Remember that is encouraged for home reading practice.

Just a few reminders:

*We go out for recess nearly every day and warm coats, hats, mittens/gloves must be worn.

*Healthy snacks must be provided from home each day, even on ½ days.

*Daily reading, coloring and signing of the reading calendar is part of your child’s daily homework.

*A smock is needed for art class.

*Secure, well fitting sneakers are needed for PE class.

*Library books must be returned on your child’s scheduled media day so that new books can be borrowed.
