Kindergarten - October 2020

Kindergarteners have had a busy month! The children continue to work hard and grow every day. We had our first field trip to Blacks Heritage Farms in Ames. We had a picnic, visited the petting zoo, and each child got to pick their own pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. Another highlight was a virtual visit with Luke Flowers, author of the Mobi Shinobi books. 

Calendar continues to be a big part of our morning routine. The children are working on counting how many days we have been in school by ones and tens and learning to spell months and days of the week. We recognize and continue patterns, chart weather and practice our handwriting in personal calendar notebooks.

In Literacy we are working hard on learning letter sounds. We have learned about rhyming, labeling, the difference between statements and questions, and have written a letter. We’re practicing writing our first names correctly and working hard on improving our handwriting. We started reading our first chapter book, Charlotte’s Web and are enjoying it a lot!

For Math this month we have studied eight 2D shapes: square, rectangle, circle, oval, trapezoid, hexagon, rhombus and triangle. We learned a poem about each one, practiced drawing them and spelling their name and counted their sides and corners. Each child made their own shape book.

Every day of the week we have a different learning activity. On Make It Monday we do art.  We used tempera paint to make an owl and watercolor to make a rainbow fish and we also glued on sequins. Techie Tuesdays are STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activities. We have learned about the 5 senses this month. On Walking Wednesdays, we take a walk around the neighborhood to enjoy God’s creation. We work on our walking in line skills, and on observing the world around us. The kids really enjoy Thinking Thursdays when we do puzzles or play memory/thinking games. Fridays we work on Fine Motor skills such as scissor skills and handwriting.
