    April

    Read below for everything we will be learning and doing in Kindergarten this month! 

    Math: Students have been working on representing number stories with number sentences, 2+2=4. We have also been learning how to use a calculator and have discussed how to measure time. In April we will be talking about bundling to further explore place value and be using function machines. We will be learning about height, width, area, and capacity too. Students are really growing with their subtraction and addition skills! 

    Superkids: In March we learned letters Pp, VV, WW, and Rr. Students have been hard at work learning how to blend these sounds to form words and getting used to writing them. In April we will be focusing on Kk, Qq, and Jj. As we quickly approach the end of the school year, please continue practicing these skills at home and encourage your student to sound out more and more words when reading. 

    Writing: Students have now started learning their vowel rules and are continuing to stretch letter sounds out and write as many sounds as they can hear in a word. Students have gotten better at remembering to have a finger space between words in a sentence and remember a period at the end. We will continue to focus on these skills and challenge students to write two sentences! 

    Social Studies: In March, we talked about Dr. Seuss and St. Patrick's Day! In April we will learn about Earth Day and the importance of recycling. 

    Science: This past month, we talked about what animals do in the Spring and the lifecycle of a chick. We also talked about weather safety in the Spring time. Students are excited to put Winter behind them and see how March came in like a lion and out like a lamb! In April, we will be learning about sharks in preparation for our field trip in April!

    Religion: In March we began Lent and have been learning how to live our lives like Jesus did. We will learn about the Three Days and Easter in April. Kindergarten will also be putting on certain masses during this month too.
