The Very Hungry Caterpillar

Hello Friends and Families,

This week we have been focusing our learning around Eric Carle's "The Very Hungry Caterpillar".

Using this text- we are learning the days of the week, doing a lot of work with our classroom calendar, studying the beginning-middle-end of stories, practicing retelling skills and studying the science behind butterflies. So much FUN!

Today, we made our own hand print caterpillars. They're pretty cute!

Workshops

Kindergarten is in full swing!

We are on day 10 of developing our daily routines and working hard every day to develop stamina and self control.

We have three workshops daily in Kindergarten: Readers Workshop, Writers Workshop and Math Workshop. A workshop is a time for us to build skills we need to become successful. Each workshop begins with a whole group mini lesson and is followed by centers relating to the skills we are learning. Most of these centers are play based encouraging students to build both social and academic skills.

Here's whats going on in our workshops this week!

Math- Shapes! Sorting, counting, drawing, etc.













Readers workshop- Reading our friends names, writing our own names, and learning about what readers do.





We are working hard in Kindergarten.
Thanks for checking in!
