Religion: Welcome to Lent

During this first week of Lent, students are preparing their hearts for what it means to "Repent and believe in the Gospel." Five and six years olds first have to know what a sin is and how they were born with original sin. After discussing our sinful actions and how we can remedy those situations we are grateful for the opportunity to reflect and repent, asking God for forgiveness.  Let us welcome Lent as a time to prepare our hearts for Jesus' ultimate sacrifice on Good Friday, His death, and the joyful celebration on Easter, His resurrection. Our Religion focus will be concentrating on Lent and moving ourselves toward resolution of conflict within ourselves and with others.

These are helpful expectations we have set to help us be "Kind Kindergartners:"

1. Treat others kindly, respectfully, and lovingly.

2. Do your very best job by listening, following directions, and doing your work well.

3. Be helpful to each other.

4. Have fun!

Language Arts: Uppercase and lowercase letters Nn and Mm

Click HERE for the list of Superkids Memory Words.  Memory words are like high frequency words that you have to memorize rather than sound out.

This week's focus: rereading the story, "The Boss" paying close attention to story details, characters, and point of view.  Students will also be introduced to letter Mm and the Superkids will explore how they can work together in their clubhouse.

Our writing emphasis will be writing activities to do in a club.  Making a list and illustration will be to highlight story ideas will accompany their writing. 




Math: Exploring teen numbers and what math partners look like in addition and subtraction. Students are in Unit 3 Lesson 15-17 this week.


Social Studies: Dr. Seuss and his influence on American readers as we celebrate his birthday and the movement, "Read Across America."





Science: Weather wrap-up

Students will be able to identify the water cycle and describe what evaporation, condensation, and precipitation are as well as the 3 main types of clouds: cirrus, stratus, and cumulus.
