Welcome to Mrs. Deriu's
Kindergarten class

I can't believe there is only one month left of the school year!

We have been busy learning all of the letter sounds and are starting to put those sounds together to form words.  We have learned 50 sight words, that we have been finding in books from our classroom library.  We are reading sight word books on our own and are so proud doing so.

In math we have been working on simple addition and subtraction sentences.  We are learning some of the vocabulary that goes with each operation. 
Addition:  plus, sum, altogether, in all
Subtraction: minus, take away, how many are left
 We also have been working with number bonds to help us decompose numbers.

In science we are talking about healthy eating and ways to keep our bodies healthy.  We are learning about the four basic food groups.  We are also talking about plants and what they need to help them grow and be healthy.

In Social studies we will be talking about community helpers.

In religion we continue to talk about how to be more like Jesus.  May is the month of Mary, and we talk about how Mary showed her love for God and how we can show our love for God like Mary did by helping out at home, sharing toys, being nice to our friends, by saying prayers and going to church. 

If at any time you have questions or concerns, you may email me at and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
