Week of May 23-26, 2016
What We’re Learning
Whirlwind is how I would describe the week ahead! This is what we will be doing day by day in kindergarten:
Monday: I’ll be working with each child individually to do end-of-year assessments in reading and math. We will wrap up our learning of long vowels with the long u sound (mnemonic clue: HUGE cube). In math, we’ll review subtraction strategies and solve word problems involving subtraction.
Tuesday: Field trip! We’ll go to the Bing Crosby Theater in Spokane to see a performance of Seussical: The Musical. We will leave right at 8:15 and return just before the end of the school day.
Wednesday: We will review the ee, ea, a_e, i_e, and o_e spelling patterns and sounds. In math, we’ll work with partners make up and solve subtraction word problems. In the afternoon, we’ll take a walking field trip to the Calispel Valley Library, followed by our regular school library time.
Thursday: I’ll be working with each child individually to do end-of-year assessments in reading and math. We’ll work in literacy and math stations most of the day.
Friday: No school!
Snacks!! The snack cupboard is bare! Please send some crackers or other snack if you are able. Thank you for your help!
