Our Week

In Communications, we read Benny’s Pennies, Mothers Are Special, and What a Wonderful World. We wrote about the weekend, our wooden sculptures, and kindergarten memories. We are ready to read and write in 1st grade!

We assessed our vowel sounds writing consonant-vowel-consonant words.

Letters we have learned so far- M, S, R, T, P, A, N, D, G, F, I, L, B, K, O, W, X, V, E, J, Y

Star words – A, My, The, I, Like, Go, We, On, To, You, Have, See, Am, What, soon, look, come (look for these words when you read with your child)

In Social Studies, we learned about places people live in the U.S.

In Science, we have continued our work with fabric. We wet fabric and discussed which fabrics would work best to keep us dry. We also dirtied fabric and cleaned it. We decided that water alone does not work and that we must use brushes and soap to really clean well. Next week we dye!

We also made our shirts for Kindergarten celebration day. Thank you to Kim Bacic, Kathleen Eikens, and Annie Smithmier for helping us out.

We have painted our Father’s Day gifts. The children wrote about them. We will wrap them and send them home next week. Please keep them safe until Father’s Day.

In Math, we played money games and read clocks. We wrote to 100 and beyond for the last time and recited phone numbers. We are ready for 1st grade!

In Religion, we attended our last Rosary prayer on Wednesday. The children quietly reflected and prayed for their families.

We have worked on our next chapters about making good choices and holy signs.
