Hey There Neighbor! This is a snippet of our latest greeting for morning meeting...


In math we are continuing to work with representing numbers, visual imagery, and recreating a picture...

We also worked with our first popcorn word...I. In kindergarten, we aim to be able to identify 88 popcorn (sight) words in isolation and within text by the end of the school year. Popcorn words are common words that "pop" up all over the place and they should be able to be identified on "sight." Each week kiddos will be introduced to a couple more words. These are great words to be working on at home as well...Point them out when you are out and about, reading at home, etc.

Here's one friend "buttering" his popcorn word, I.

Have a wonderful night! :)

There is some great learning going on in Room 7!...The majority of our days continues to be used to practice routines and set our room up for success!

Today we started learning about our first Daily 5 station...Read to Self.


After talking about what our jobs are during it and what it should look like, sound like, and feel like, we gave it a try.





We successfully did Read to Self today for 1 minute. We made a goal to be able to do it for 2 minutes tomorrow. We will practice each day and work on building our stamina.

Our motto today: "The only way to become a better reader is to READ!"

Math was busy today! We continued working with numbers and showing them in various ways...

We also learning about two certain shapes...

The hexagon and the trapezoid...


We used our math trays and tools as a large group and with partners to help us learn...








We are continuing to learn about the letters of the alphabet and the sounds they make. Here are the visual phonics for A-F...
