Reading: We will be finishing the year with a unit called Growing Expertise in
Little Books: Reading for Information. This unit will immerse your young readers
in the world of informational reading for several weeks, giving them plenty of
opportunity for repeated practice, and mastery of skills that are particular to
reading nonfiction. They will look at texts and their features to learn all about topics.
We will be teaching children to think about what their books are about and then
reading closely, looking for new ideas, information, and vocabulary on every page.
Writing: One of the wonderful things about working with kindergartners is the
delight they take in their own knowledge. This writing unit channels that energy
into writing “ All About” books. Each student will write lots of informational books
about many different topics. During this unit students develop important
nonfiction writing skills and get to choose topics that explore their hobbies,
passions, and interests.
Math: Our topics include addition and subtraction facts, positional language,
measurable attributes, writing and solving equations, units of weight, and exploring
“doubles” addition facts. We will spend time reviewing math concepts previously
taught and celebrate the mathematical skills learned in kindergarten.
Integrated Studies: We are learning all about plants. During this unit we
will be doing experiments with how plants grow and learning about different
types and parts of plants.
