Week of March 27th- March 31st Letter Z

Dear Parents,

I want to thank you all for helping your children with their 3-D animals and getting them prepared for our Kinder Zoo. The children did a wonderful job presenting their animals. The students spoke with confidence and felt very proud of what they had learned. WAY TO GO KINDERGARTNERS!



This week we are going to be working with the letter Zz. The vocabulary that we are going to be focusing on is the following: zebra, zero, zipper, zoo, zookeeper, zucchini.

If you have any items at home that begin with this letter, send them over with your child and we will be discussing them in class, we will display them on a table and we will return them back on Friday. The kids get excited to bring things from home.

Some of the stories that we will be reading this week are:


What will it take for Zack to wake up? We will find out in this zippy tale that teaches the letter Z.
Spot, a polka-dot leopard who can change colors and even juggle his own spots, tries to convince two children that he is special enough to be exhibited in the zoo. 

This absolutely stunning picture book is all about Za-za and the effect that the new baby has on a household. When Za-za, the little zebra gets a baby brother, the usual routines in her life change radically. Mom returns from hospital, and she's tired, and Za-za is looked after by Granny. The baby receives all the attention from both her parents as well as visitors and Za-za is feeling neglected. Everyone is so busy that there is no time for toys or stories. So how does it all turn out for Za-za?





We will introduce five new sight words: may, did, girl, day, get. Please practice them with your child at home!!!




This week we will be studying fractions. Whole, Half 1/2 , Halves, and Fourths 1/4. We will be doing a variety of activities in order to gain understanding about this concept.
We will also be adding doubles, sums up to 20




In Social Studies we will begin our Map Unit. We will be discussing map features and how maps can help us. We will also learn how to read maps.
If you have any maps you would like to share with the class Please send them in, we will return them when we are finished with our Map unit.
