Our kindergarten students are working very hard on phonics.  Our new Reading Horizons program is helping us learn about letters and sounds.  We blend them together to make words.  We are learning about nouns, verbs,  punctuation, when to use capital letters, nonsense words, blends, digraphs, and many sight words.  

In math we are learning all about numbers.  We work on adding and subtracting, counting to 100, and recognizing and comparing numbers.  We work on days of the week, months of the year, place value, shapes, patterns, time to the hour, and coins.

One of our major goals this year is to learn kindness.  To be kind means using kind words and actions.    We have a Kindness Club Challenge we are using to encourage and teach the meaning of being a friend.  Some of our challenges are:  say please and thank you, raise your hand, hands & feet to yourself, use kind words, try your best, listen the first time, help someone else, and share.
