   MMSA Kindergarten Class

Please make sure your child has a healthy breakfast to help him/her be successful in school. 

Let's go MMSA Wolves and make it a fabulous year in Kindergarten!




Religion: Chapter 6 helps us understand that we have a special place to talk with God.  During church services, we meet God in His home and together we pray to Him.  We pray for forgiveness for our sins, thanksgiving for what we have, and patience to love when it is most hard to love.  We are also preparing our hearts for the gift of forgiveness as we explore the parable of the 10 Lepers.  Jesus healed 10 lepers and only one returned to say 'thank you.' Let us remember to recognize those times when God and others are there for us.



Language Arts: Lily and the letter Ll /l/

Lily will help the student with the letter Ll and the /l/ sound.  Students will practice writing uppercase and lowercase Ll as well as identifying words that begin with Ll.  Last week, Sal helped the students with cvc words that were simple to sound out and blend.  I hope your child continues to have fun learning how to read.




Math: Patterns, number order, numeral writing, object counting, and understanding shapes and sides


Social Studies: Community Helpers & Election Day


Science:  The Afton Apple Orchard was a blast!  We picked 3 apples and 1 pumpkin, enjoyed apple cider, and a picnic lunch followed by an amazing playground adventure!



Picnic lunch at Afton Apple Orchard and pumpkin decorating with 4th grade buddies.
