Welcome to Kindergarten!
Teacher: Ms. Wargo
Teacher Aide: Mrs. C. Whitehouse
Read below for everything we will be learning and doing in Kindergarten this month!
Math: Students are starting to learn numbers 1-10. We are thinking of these numbers in quantities represented. We also are learning about attributes and how attributes can help us sort objects. We will be learning numbers 1 more and 1 less. In addition, we will be focusing on shapes. This is all within the first month of school!
Superkids: We have met Cass now, who is teaching us about the letter C/k/ while discussing cooking. In September, we will be learning the letter sounds and how to write the letters Oo/o/ and Gg/g/ with Oswald and Golly. The Superkids program does a nice job of learning about letters while learning lasting lessons in social skills.
Science: Tis the season! Well, not actually, but in Kindergarten this month we will be learning about the seasons of the year. We disucss the name of each and how the weather and our clothing differs depending on the season. We will be learning about apples too. How apples grow and the parts of an apple will come in handy for when we attend our field trip October 11 to County Line Orchards.
Social Studies: As students are just starting to know each other, what better way to start with "All About Me" in Social Studies. This goes along well with our school theme of celebrating diversity. We are all different, but together, we all make up St. Barbara. Without even one of us, our community would not be the same!
Religion: We start off the school year by learning how God made the world and everything in it. We will focus on His gifts in nature and how it is our job to take care of them. Kindergarten will start to attend Church biweekly in October.
