What's Happening in KA?
**********************************************

This Week in KA:

In math we continued working on subtraction.  Two optional homework pages came home for you to review with your child.  The students seem to be doing well with the concepts so far.  We also completed another math fact test which will be coming home next week!

In reading we added the words find, from, but, this, came and on to our word wall.  We worked on the letter Gg and the –ig word family.  This week I picked a book for each student to work on all week.  They kept these books in their boxes at school and worked on reading them each day.  I was very pleased with how well each of the students did.  They were excited to read to me and to each other.  We will be continuing to do this throughout the remainder of the year.  As a class we read the story “It is the wind”, and worked on predictions and discussed the authors word choice.  We are continuing to look at both beginning and ending sounds of words, and have also began working on identifying the middle sound of words as well.  This week, the beginning of 3rd quarter, we reset our Ducky at 0 points.  I am happy to report that as of today, as a class, the students have already earned 40 ducky points!  This brings our total for the year to 202 books!  I think Mr.Witker might be getting nervous!  Keep up the great work!

In Religion we loved sharing our Baptism pictures.  We spent the week discussing the Sacrament of Baptism and how it makes us a member of God’s Church.  Thank you for sharing these special memories with our class.  We have also added a new Prayer Jar in our classroom.  This is a place that the students can write down any special prayers they have, some will be shared aloud with the class and others will remain in the quiet of our hearts.  We have also started working on learning the Our Father, please take time to practice this prayer at home with your child.

Next Week in KA:

In math we will continue our chapter on subtraction.  Please continue looking at addition math facts with your child at home.  Remember, they are expected to fluently know math facts with sums of five or below by the end of kindergarten.  Once we complete our chapter on subtraction we will be working on fluently learning our subtractions facts below 5 as well.

In reading we will be focusing on the letter Rr and adding the words will, into, your, be, that and who to our word wall.  These words are on the light green list 4.  Please be sure you are continuing to work on sight words at home with your child.  If you believe your child is ready for a new list, please send a note and we will review them with your child at school.  We will be discussing authors purpose and figurative language in our whole class stories this week.

In Religion we will be working on our chapter, “God Creates All People”.

Reminders:

NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21st.

Please be sure you are sending your child’s R.E.D. folder to school each Friday.  They should be completing 10 minutes of reading each evening and recording what they read in their folder.  The QR code stories should be returned on Friday as well.  REMINDER- these are different than the Ducky Point pages.  Please return Ducky pages in their blue folders and the QR stories in their R.E.D. folders.  This helps us keep everything straight in the classroom!  Students have a QR story each week and are required to complete 3 Ducky pages by the end of the 3rd quarter.  Thank you for helping us stay organized!

Now that winter is here and it is cold, please be sure your child is dressed appropriately each day.  If the girls do not have leggings on outside at recess their legs are getting very cold!  Hats and gloves are HIGHLY recommended!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask!  Have a wonderful, safe and snowy weekend!

Mrs. Shinaberry

This Week in KA:

It is great to be back from Christmas break.  I am glad to be settled back in and the students have done a terrific job getting back to work and back to our daily routines.  Today marks the end of the 2nd quarter.  Today we were THRILLED to announce to the school office that as a class we read 162 books and completed either a ducky reading response sheet or took an A.R. test on them.  THIS IS AMAZING!  I am so proud of the students!  When we travelled and announced our success to the office, Mr. Witker gave the class a new challenge.  He has challenged them to read 400 books by the end of the year.  IF they reach this goal, he told them they can EACH throw a pie in his face!  Needless to say, this was a very exciting challenge and the students can’t wait for pie in the face day!  If you would like to see their excitement, check the SJA facebook page for a video Mrs. Terrill posted!  Again, THANK YOU for your support in this at home.  I truly believe having the students leave kindergarten with a love of reading is my biggest job!

In math we started our chapter on subtraction.  So far we have explored that subtraction means take away and that our new math symbol is a minus sign.  I will continue to send math pages home periodically so that you can see what we are working on and assist your child in extra practice.  We also completed our first math fact timed test.  By the end of Kindergarten, students should be fluent in sums to 5.

In reading we read a book called Dear Mr. Blueberry, in this story a girl and her teacher write letters back and forth.  We enjoyed reading this story and learning about letters and questions.  We focused on writing sentences with our sight words and used a question mark for the first time!  We added 6 new words to our sight word wall.  Is, how, of, so, many, and where. Please continue working on mastering your child’s sight word lists.  If you are in need of another copy of your child’s current list, please let me know.  I am more than happy to send another one home!  We also worked on the letter Ii in handwriting and learned about the –it word family.

In Religion, we wrote letters to our Unbound friend, Mayte.  Her birthday is at the end of the month, and we were inspired by our story about letters.  The students were also excited to us Google Earth to look at Bolivia, the country Mayte is from.  It really helped connect in their minds how far away she lives and what her country is like.  This week we also had our January Kindness Day and had Mr. Witker as our guest teacher.  This month’s focus is on being accepting.

Next Week in KA:

Monday, January 14th is our next Unbound Day!  Your child may bring in $1 and dress down for the day.  All the money raised will go to support our sponsored children.

Library is Monday, please be sure to return your child’s library book so they can check out a new one!

3rd quarter begins Monday.  Be on the lookout in your child’s blue folder for a letter explaining the children’s individual ducky reading goals and our class goal for the new quarter.  I will also be sending new ducky reading response sheets home on Monday.

In math we will continue with our chapter on subtraction.  We will also continue to work on our addition timed tests.

In reading we will be adding the words find, from, but, this, came and on to our word wall.  We will focus on the letter Gg.  We will focus on sequencing events in a story and discussing an author’s word choice.

In Religion we are going to be learning about Baptism.  If you have not already sent in a picture from your child’s Baptism, please do so they can share it with the class next week.

*******************************************************************************************
This Week in KA:
What an exciting week it was in our classroom!  The students celebrated their pizza party for reaching their class goal of 50 ducky reading points.  When they reached the goal last Friday, they decided to try and double it and reach 100 by the end of 2nd quarter (January 11th).  I am THRILLED to report that as of today, the students have 90 ducky points!  That means that as a class, they have read and completed reading response sheets and/or A.R. tested on 90 books since Thanksgiving!  I have no doubt they will reach their 100 book goal, and am beyond thankful for your support in helping them feel the success and enjoyment reading can bring.
In math we completed our chapter on addition.  Today in your child’s book bag, you will find the book we used for this chapter.  I have removed the end of chapter test so that you can use the book to review with your child over the weekend.  As I shared at conferences, I am trying to provide you better ways to review and help your child prepare before the test.  There are many pages (the homework pages) that we did not complete together in class.  These are a great way to review and help your child “study”.  We will take the chapter test next Wednesday!
In reading we added the words “are” and “now” and focused on the letter Bb.  We talked about cause and effect and making predictions when we read.  I have been pleased to see the kids progress in identifying both beginning and ending sounds.  We will continue working on these as well as adding identifying middle sounds.
In Religion we continued our focus on Advent.  We have been reading and working with the Nativity story.  Our chapter this week discussed the Holy family and we discussed how Jesus was a little boy that lived in a family just like us.  We spent time thinking about the types of things he might have down with Mary and Joseph that we also do with our families.
Next Week in KA:
We will have a week full of special Christmas activities and preparation.
In math we will complete our test on the addition chapter on Wednesday.
In reading we will be focusing on enjoying lots of Christmas stories.  We will be sequencing the Nativity story and are looking forward to building “elf traps” after reading How to Catch an Elf this week.
In Religion we will be finishing our focus on Advent and the Nativity story.
A few reminders:
Tuesday, December 18th is the Christmas program.  Doors open at 5:40, students are to report to the classroom by 5:45.  The program begins promptly at 6:00.
Thursday, December 20th is the last day of school.  We will be having a classroom party in the afternoon.  Please be sure to send a wrapped book with your child for our classroom gift exchange.  Please label if it is for a boy, girl or either as well as sign it from your child.  Thank you!
No school Friday, December 21st-January 6th.  Classes resume on January 7th, 2019!
** One correction from today’s SJA Weekly.  By the end of the year, kindergarten students should be able to fluently add and subtract within 5.  Not 10 as stated in the SJA Weekly. **

This week in KA:

We have exciting news to share from KA!  Today we were THRILLED to reach our Reading Incentive Goal of 50 books for the 2nd quarter!  I had 5 students turn in response pages and/or take A.R. tests to earn a ducky point, pushing our class total to 52 books!  WOW!  I am so proud of these kiddos and amazed by their abilities.  Thank you for your support at home!

In celebration of reaching our goal, as promised, we will be having a pizza party!  I would like to have our pizza party on Thursday, December 13th during lunch.  I plan to order Marco’s cheese pizza and have juice.  If you wish to have your child have something in addition to this for lunch on Thursday, please send additional items in their lunch box.  If your child does not like pizza (which I have never personally understood!) please let me know so that I can order accordingly!

Does this mean they are all done reading until 3rd quarter?  NO WAY!  They announced to Mr. Witker today that they were going to keep reading and try and get to 100 books!  I love their enthusiasm and can’t wait to see if they reach this new goal!

In Math we continued working on addition.  Please begin working on addition math facts at home with your child!  We will be wrapping up this chapter before Christmas, but will continue working on addition concepts and facts throughout the remainder of the year.

In reading we added the words “you” and “what” to our word wall and focused on the –ag word family.  The students were excited to read some books this week that had mostly short a words!

In Religion we spent a lot of time talking about Advent.  Thank you for helping your child with their daily figurines to add to their Nativity scenes as well.  We were excited to celebrate St. Nicholas Day on Thursday.  The surprise candy cane and chocolate coins I our stocking were a welcomed treat!

Next Week in KA:

In math we will continue with addition.  We will finish our chapter and begin preparing for our end of chapter test.

In reading we will be working on the letter Bb, and adding the words “now” and “are” to our word wall.  Please continue to be working on reading the sight word lists at home with your child.  We are over half way through our orange list now!

In Religion, we are going to be reading the Nativity story and learning more about  the Holy Family.  We will be attending Mass on Wednesday, December 12!  NO JEANS PASSES ARE ALLOWED ON MASS DAYS!

Coming Up:

This Week in KA:

This has been a busy week as we settled back into our routines after our week off!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Thank you again to all of you for taking time to attend parent teacher conferences.  It is so nice having time to sit and chat with each of you about your children.

We have made AMAZING progress toward our class goal of reading 50 books!  As of today, as a class the students have read 25 books!  Thank you for supporting a love of reading at home and taking time to engage in such a meaningful activity with your children.  Their love of reading will be a direct reflection of the example you are setting for them!  Keep up the great work!

This week in reading we added the words “with” and “my” to our word wall.  These were the first two words from our orange list.  As discussed at conferences, your child should continue working on their sight word lists and progressing at their individual pace.  We reviewed the letter Nn and worked on this letter in handwriting as well.  This week we began working on identifying ending sounds of words.  We discussed what makes a story a fantasy and read “Storm is Coming”, the talking animals made this a wonderful example.

In math we continued working on addition.  We read many word problems and practiced drawing models to help us write our addition sentences.  The students are also excited to begin learning addition facts.  I encourage you to begin practicing math facts at home as well.  A great way to start is with 1’s and move up from there (1+1=2, 1+2=3, 1+3=4 etc.).  Once your child knows all of those facts, you can advance to 2’s (2+1=2, 2+2=4, etc.).

In Religion we began talking about the season of Advent.  We touched on the Holy Family and will continue talking about these topics next week.  This weekend, while at Mass, draw your child’s attention to the Advent wreath and how we are lighting the first purple candle on the first Sunday of Advent.

Next Week in KA:

Tuesday, December 4th is our next Kindness Day.  Students may dress down and wear their red Kindness day shirts.

In reading we will be adding the words “you” and “what”.  We will be focusing on the letter Ff and working on the –ap word family.  We will be working on adding details to our writing and focusing on using capitals and adding punctuation.

In math we will continue working on addition.  We will be exploring number pairs.

In Religion we will continue discussing Advent and exploring the true meaning of Christmas.

 

I hope to see many of you at Brunch with Santa tomorrow in the school gym.  If you did not buy tickets in advance, you can still purchase them at the door for $8.  It is a wonderful community building event!  Please be sure your child finds me if you are able to come, I love every opportunity to see them outside of school!

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!

******************************************************************************************************

This Week in KA:

In math we continued working on addition and writing number sentences.  The students had a little more difficulty finding the missing addends.  Typically, we think of addition in terms of finding the sum.  A few kiddos found this to be frustrating, but we will continue working on it and I am sure they will get the hang of it.  Take a look at the following examples for ideas on what to be practicing at home.

7+___=10

Sam has 5 apples.  He buys more apple and now he has 10 apples all together.  How many more apples did Sam buy?  Answer:  5+___=10  Sam bought 5 more apples.

In reading we looked at the –an word family.  We worked on sounding our words in writing.  We have been working hard to remember capital letters and punctuation when we write sentences.  We added the words “come” and “me” to our word wall this week.  Many of the students moved up to a new word list this week!  Thank you so much for the continued practice on these.  The students are becoming more confident readers each day.

In Religion we focused on being thankful.  We discussed that all our gifts come from God and how we should remember to tell God thank you in our prayers.

Today, the students were excited to wear our Pilgrim hats and “sail” our Mayflower ship to “America”.  We enjoyed a Thanksgiving Day Feast with 5B and worked on a thankful coloring page.  It is always fun to dress up and celebrate together.

Next Week in KA:

I am looking forward to meeting with you for conferences on Monday and Tuesday!

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving week filled with lots of family, fun and food!  Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful children with me.  I truly am thankful for each of them and the blessings that they bring to me each day!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This week in KA:

In math we worked on addition.  We learned how to read both the word “plus” as well as the symbol “+”.  We also learned about writing addition sentences with addends and a sum.

In reading we worked on summarizing and read the story “Mouse Shapes”.  We also learned about word families and focused on the –at word family.  The students were excited to discover that by simply changing the first letter/sound they were able to read to read so many words.

In Religion we worked on the chapter, “We Thank God at Mass”.  The students took a trip over to Church with Mrs. Terrill to look more closely at the items in Church.

 

Next week in KA:

In math we will continue looking at addition.  We will work more on writing addition sentences up to a sum of 10.  At home you can practice by giving your child groups of objects and asking them to write an addition sentence using those objects.  We will be working on finding not only the sum, but also missing addends.

For example: 5+5=___   or  3+___=7  

Another way to practice is to give your child a simple word problem and ask them to write an addition sentence to show how they could solve the problem. 

For example:  Two puppies were at the park.  One more puppy comes to play.  How many puppies are at the park now?

In reading we will be working on the –an word family.  We will be adding 2 new sight words this week.  Our new words will be “come” and “me”.  The students are doing a fantastic job moving through our sight word lists!  They are so motivated and excited when they get to start working on a new list!  Thank you so much for all of you hard work on these words at home!  Our letter of the week is Ii.

For Religion, we are going to be focusing on what it means to be thankful!

We will also be talking and reading about the first Thanksgiving.  We will be celebrating on Friday by “sailing a ship” down the hall and having a special “meal” and activity with the 5th graders!

Important Reminders:

  • NO SCHOOL on Monday, November 19th and Tuesday, November 20th.  If you have not yet signed up for a conference time with me, please be sure and check the sign up genius sent out by Mrs. Guzman for the remaining time slots available.
  • Please be sure your child is bringing hats and gloves for recess, and that they are dressed appropriately for the weather.  As it is getting colder the kids are beginning to complain they are cold during recess.

This Week in KA:
We had a VERY busy and eventful week!  The students really enjoyed our Halloween festivities!  A special thank you to all the parents that helped to make our classroom party a big success!  The students looked fantastic in their costumes and really enjoyed themselves.
Thursday, I was impressed with the student’s behavior in Church and enjoyed seeing all the creative saint costumes.  We learned about many different saints and while it is a bit of a difficult concept to understand, the idea of Saints as Catholic super hero’s really seemed to make more sense!
While our week was full of lots of special activities.  We still found time to do lots of learning as well.
In reading we used the book, “Room on the Broom” to explore characters and discuss the problem of the story.  We focused on some new vocabulary such as cloak and cauldron!  In reading stations we completed some comprehension questions about the book as well as matched letters and beginning sounds and uppercase and lowercase letters.
In math we started chapter 5, addition.  We will look more at this topic next week as well.  In also reviewed greater and less a little more.
The students also did a STEM activity where they had to try and balance Lego characters from our “Room on the Broom” story.  They realized that different heights of Legos changed the weight and made it a little more difficult to balance.  They did a great job trying to figure out how to make it all work!
Next Week in KA:
In math we will continue working on our chapter on addition.  Please look in your child’s folder today for their chapter 4 book, their chapter test is on the last pages of this book.
In reading we will be finishing Unit 2 and reviewing our letters and sight words.  No new words will be added, but please be sure you are continuing to practice sight words and number words at home.  We will begin working on our color words as well this quarter.  We will begin looking at the –at word family.
In Religion we will be discussing what it means to be Thankful.  We will be completing our chapter “We Thank God at Mass”.  Thank you to all the parents taking their children to Mass each weekend.  They were very proud of themselves after attending Mass this week with the big kids!
R.E.D. Folders will be coming home again Monday.  A story QR code response sheet will be inside for completion next week. 
A fun homework assignment will also be coming home in their blue folders on Monday!  This assignment will be due the following Monday, November 12th!
Extra Notes:
Tuesday, November 6th is our next Kindness Day.  This is a dress down day, but now that all students have their Kindness shirts, please be sure your child wears it on Tuesday!
Grade cards are available today via Ren Web.  In your child’s blue folder, you will find a parent preconference survey, as well as a note about some of the items that were assessed this quarter.  Please look for these and let me know if you have any questions regarding the grade cards.  Please complete the survey and return it to me no later than next Friday.  This will help me better prepare for our conferences.  A sign up for conference times will be coming out from the office very soon!
FYI the grading system in kindergarten is as follows:
E= Excellent
S+= Above Average Satisfactory
S= Satisfactory
S-= Below Average Satisfactory
N= Needs improvement
U= Unsatisfactory

*********************************************************************************************************

This week in KA:

This week we had so much fun reading the story, “Creepy Carrots”.  We talked about the letter Cc this week and it worked perfectly with our story!  The students have been working hard to settle into our reading station routine.  This week they used a variety of materials to build fences around the creepy carrots, created their own creepy carrots and independently completed a story response about their favorite part!

As a class we worked on two different reading graphic organizers, we completed both a story map and a Venn diagram!  It was a very big week and I was thrilled with how awesome the students did!

In math we completed chapter 4 and took our test.  Look for these to be coming home next week!

We took a walk across the parking lot and spent some time in Church this week.  We talked about all the rules and important things the students need to know before we go to church for the first time next week!

Thank you to all those families making it to Church on the weekends.  We had a wonderful turnout for our class Mass last Sunday, I hope all that attended enjoyed the time and had an opportunity to talk with some other class parents.

Next week in KA:

We have a very busy week ahead of us…

Monday:  We will be having a special visitor at school!  Anna the therapy dog will be coming into school for a visit!

Tuesday:  We will be meeting with our 7th grade buddies for the first time!

Wednesday:  Halloween!  This is a dress down day, please think through your child’s costume, if they need black leggings or any items that can be worn both as their clothing as well as their costume, that is helpful!  Students are not required to wear uniforms, but costumes will not be put on fully until after lunch/recess.  Helping 24 kiddos get into costumes can be a bit of an undertaking!  We will send all the girls into one kindergarten room and all the boys into the other for changing.  Please send your child’s costume in a bag with their name on it, or inside their book bag.  Props are welcome for the afternoon parade, but please be sure all items coming to school are appropriate for school!  We ask for no makeup or hair color in school.  The school wide parade begins at 1:15. Parents are invited (and encouraged) to watch the parade in the parking lot.  The students will process across the parking lot, into the church and back to the school.  They love having lots of parents create “a tunnel” to walk through!  If the weather does not allow us to be outside, the parade will be moved into the gym.  Our classroom party will follow the school parade.  If you have any questions or specific concerns regarding your child’s costume, please let me know!

Thursday:  All Saints Feast Day!  Father Adam has invited students to dress up as their favorite saint.  An email with specifics were sent home earlier this week.  If you have any questions, let me know!  We will be attending Mass for the first time with our Church buddies and will spend the remainder of the day working on All Saints activities!

Friday:  We will spend Friday regrouping and recovering from the rest of the week!

We will be focusing on the letter Pp, we will add the word “to” to our sight word wall and will be reading a variety of Halloween stories.

In math we will begin chapter 5, addition!

In Religion our focus will be on Saints!

A huge thank you to everyone for the amount of reading and sight word practice that is happening at home!  The kids are so excited to be moving from one sight word list to another!  I am blown away with this group of kiddos!  Keep up the good work.  No QR code response sheet will be sent home this week.  Please complete the R.E.D. folder reading log, but with Halloween and all the evening activities that go along with it, I didn’t want to assign anything extra!

Coming Up:

Keep your eyes out for an email with a sign up genius for parent teacher conferences.  This will be coming from Mrs. Guzman in the near future.

Grade cards will be sent home (via email) on Friday, November 2nd.  A preconference parent survey will also be sent home in your child’s folder that day, please keep an eye out for it.  This survey will help me better prepare for our conference in November!  Simply complete and return the survey to me by November 9th.

An annual event, Brunch with Santa, is coming up on December 1st.  This is a great event help in our school gym.  Food, crafts, games, photo booth, and Santa and Mrs. Claus make for a wonderful event.  If you have not attended in the past, please consider attending this year.  It is one of my personal favorite community activities here at SJA!  Keep an eye out in the SJA weekly for ticket information!
