Kindergarten Stories: Week 5

Curriculum Night - Thursday, September 23, 2010

Jeff, Jakob, and I attended the Curriculum Night at Jakob's school.  Each grade level met with parents to discuss grade-level expectations and schedules.  Jakob saw some friends and worked on the three of them colored while we listened to the speech from the Kindergarten teachers.

Language Art:
  • Blend phonemes to form one syllable words (T-O-P= top)
  • Recognize that sentences are made of individual words
  • Learn all the letters and sound relationships
  • Recognize and come up with rhyming words
  • Recognize 25 or more sight words
  • Use simple sentences with a capital at the the beginning and punctuation at the end.
  • Use sets of objects to represent quantities of numbers up to 20 more more
  • Use concrete objects to show more than, less than and the same number
  • Sorting and classifying concrete objects
  • Read a calendar to identify the month, day, and date
  • Count by 1's to 100
  • Compare two objects based on their attributes
  • Use patters to predict what comes next
  • Create addition and subtraction problems based on real life situations using objects (end of year)
  • Identify shapes
  • Describe an objects position (over, above, under, below)
  • Living and non-living things
  • Changes in seasons and weather
  • Conservation
  • Basic needs of plants, their parts, and characteristics
  • Light heat and sound energy
Social Studies:
  • Focus is on self, family, and classroom
  • Chronology
  • Holidays
  • Authority figures at home and at school
  • Customs, symbols and traditions that represent American beliefs
Here is my favorite thing Jakob brought home last week.  They were focusing on the letter L and he has a lizard colored.  He also had a paper with his sight words.

Next week, Jakob and the other students will begin studying apples.  They will comparing, graphing, reading, and writing all about apples!  Today, we purchased more apples to eat and one for Jakob to take to school.
