Dear Parents of SJRS Student,
Please note that your child’s daily assignments for remote learning will be posted on the Google Doc link that we sent you through your Renweb email.
Mrs. Lacy and I are working together to create lessons that will assure you and your child the continuous implementation of our kindergarten curriculum.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and enthusiasm as you are adjusting to this new and challenging task of instructing your child at home. As a team, we will make this endeavor a success!
Kindly, remember to email me daily to let me know that your child has completed his/her assignments for the day. I cannot mark him/her Present until you email me.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.
It is truly a pleasure to welcome you and your child to KD. I really enjoyed meeting all of my boys and girls on the first few days of school. I am starting to get to know each and everyone of them. We have a GREAT class filled with enthusiastic students who are so excited and ready to learn. They are each bringing into our class their very own unique and special personality. When blended together, we create a family environment filled with fun and learning. I am looking forward to a great year as we work together to make this a wonderful and successful learning experience for your child. Kindergarten is one of many important milestones in your child’s life. I am privileged to be a special part of it.
Each week, I will post the skills that will be taught throughout the week in Language Arts, Math, Religion, Science, and Social Studies. This will allow you the opportunity to reinforce these skills at home. My page will be updated each week.
LANGUAGE ARTS – This week the children will read the story “The Boss.” They will use prior knowledge and answer questions about the story.They will also identify the speech and thought balloons throughout the story. They will associate pictures with words and sentences. The memory words Supernoodle and for will be introduced. Other skills this week include: encoding words containing _ent, _and, and _ut families and writing a story about club activities. The children will also continue to practice their creative writing skills by completing prompts in their journals.
**We will be celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2. For the next few weeks, the children will enjoy reading and listening to Dr. Seuss books. They will also participate in fun activities and centers highlighting this wonderful author.
***Please practice “The Big Book of Blending” for 10 to 15 minutes each day. This will help the children improve their blending skills as well as enhance reading fluency. Kindly, do not go ahead in the book as I assign the pages as the letters are taught. However, I encourage you to occasionally go back and review the previous pages. At this time, the children are moving forward with confidence, picking up speed as they decode words. I can see a definite difference in the children who practice daily. Thank you so much!!
BIG BOOK OF BLENDING – Letter N ( Please continue to review the previous pages assigned).
MATH – Chapter 8 will be introduced. This chapter will focus on showing, counting, and writing numbers to 20 and beyond. This week the children will model and count 20 with objects. They will also solve problems by using the strategy,”make a model.”
RELIGION – This week the children will continue to discuss ways we may do show our love for Jesus and others by doing “good deeds” during the Lenten Season.
Since Ash Wednesday is the beginning of the Lenten Season( 40 days of preparation for Easter), we have been discussing ways we can show our love for Jesus and others while preparing for Easter. We especially have been talking about showing our love and kindness for Jesus and others by doing simple “good deeds” (share, use kind words, help family and friends, and etc.). To help the children experience the wonderful feeling of doing kind gestures for others, I assigned a “Good Deed” project for Lent. A “Good Deed” packet was sent home on Ash Wednesday with a picture of a stain glass window with a writing page attached. Each time your child does a good deed, he/she is to color a piece of the window. By the end of Lent, it would be great to see the whole window completed with good deeds! The children will also pick 10 deeds that they would like to share with the class, and write a sentence about each one ( ex. I helped my mom set the table.). The packets are due back a week before Easter. I will let you know the exact date at a later time. Thank you so much for working together to help your child understand the true meaning of Lent. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me.
**I am sorry the directions for the project are late, but I sent an email to you on the day I sent the packet home (Wednesday) and recently found out that the email failed to send.

SCIENCE – Push and Pull (Force)
