Welcome to Mrs. Deriu's
Kindergarten class

It is hard to believe that October is coming to an end!  We will begin talking about Thanksgiving and preparing for our Thanksgiving Feast.  We will also start doing fun crafts to decorate the hall and the classroom for the season! 

We continue learning our morning prayer and the prayer we say before we eat snack and lunch, as well as learning the Act of Contrition at the end of the day.  In religion we continue to talk about all of God's creations and all the gifts God provided us.  We are talking about the land God provided for us and how we need to take care of it.

We continue practicing writing our names making sure the letters touch the lines they are suppose to. We are learning to use a capital letter at the beginning of our name and the rest of the letters need to be lower case. 

We are in our second unit of Super Kids.  We Met Golly the dog and worked on the sound the letter Gg makes, we are now on to the letter Aa working with Alf (short for Alfalfa). Focusing on the short Aa sound. We are learning that the sound can be in the middle of a word and not always at the beginning.

In math we are working on the numbers six and seven. We are learning to decompose the numbers to find hidden partners that make up both those numbers.  6 = 4 + 2, 3+3, 5 +1.  4 and 2 are hidden partners etc. We continue to learn that the numbers can be represented in different ways.

We are up to our 9th sight word - I, am, can, like, see, no, the, and, we.  We continue to work on different activities through out the week that helps them to retain and recognize the words in print.

In science we continue to focus on the season of fall.  We are doing fun activities during the week that incorporate what we have been learning.  We also focused on Bats to go along with our short Aa sound and read Stellaluna and compared bats to birds.  We watched a video on what bats can do and also read their Science magazine "Let's Find Out" on Bats.  We ended the two day lesson with making a bat craft and telling me something they learned about bats to go along with it.

In social studies we discussed fire safety and halloween safety and had visits from both the fire department and police department.
