Mrs. Wilson’s Literacy



5/13/19

Dear parents,


Thank you so much for those that were able to come to Breakfast and Books. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. :)


I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for such a wonderful year with your kindergartner.  Each student has come so far and has worked so hard. I could not have done it without your love and support.


I sent home a list of reading suggestions for your child to enjoy over the summer.  I decided that a second-grade reading level would be the best fit for our class as it is the median.


Lexia is a year long subscription so your child may access it throughout the summer.


Have the most wonderful summer! Relax, laugh, love, and enjoy!


Much thanks,


Mrs. Wilson

The diorama project is due next Monday 4/29:) Your child will present information about their animal to the class. (This is part of their grade) There is NOT a write up portion with this project unless your child would like to write down information on a notecard to help them present their animal.

They should be able to talk about their animal and answer questions about it. Please make sure this is child centered and not completed by a family member.

Today we began our last unit in literacy, Research!  This homework assignment went home last Monday in your child's homework folder.  Please note that your child does  NOT have a spelling test this Friday. We will have our very last spelling test on April 26th. 

DUE: Monday April, 29

(ooopps...disregard the homework from last week saying, 4/30)

It is hard to believe but the school year is coming to an end.  For our end of year project the boys and girls will create a diorama.  We have learned about research and the students are excited to put their knowledge into their own project. The students will create a habitat of an animal of their choice.  After they research the animal, they need to create a diorama illustrating the animal in its natural habitat. They will all present their project to the class on Monday and Tuesday.  This project is due Monday, April 29th. If your child decides to bring it in early, that is okay. They will be presenting their project and it will need to be in their own words.

Choose an animal to learn about. Create a shoebox diorama for your animal. You may use construction paper, paint, clay, natural materials, drawings, printed pictures and other household materials to create your animal’s habitat.


Ideas:

1. Paint a background scene, don’t forget the inside walls.

2. Create ground or hills using clay, or paper mache

3. Add details like trees and rocks, flowers, insects, and other animals that you would find in the same habitat.

It is so hard to believe that we only have two more units to learn in literacy and only one more reading group book to read.  Our fiction/non-fiction unit will begin tomorrow.   Each child will learn so much throughout this unit which is perfect since our next unit is on research. During the research unit we will be completing hands on activities about different animals, people, etc that interest the children. For example,  we will learn about many species of sharks.  At the end of the unit, they will have the opportunity to research an animal they are interested in and make a shadow box (diorama) about that animal's habitat. Please have your child begin to think about which animal they would like to research. Information for this project went home today in your child's white folder; It will be due April 30th!
 
The students will be finishing their reading group books in the next week or so. New books will come home next Monday in their homework folders.  This will be the very last book that is sent home and it does not need to be returned. 

The HWT letters we will work on this week are: m, h, b

Spelling words: -oo word family: hook, took, good, stood, wood, foot, gas, heat
Differentiated words: brushes, rushes, washes, dashes, fear, fair, flutter, messes

There will only be one more spelling test after this Friday's test and the last one will be an cumulative test.  This means they will have words they have already had throughout the year.  This test will have 10 words and will be on Friday, April 26th. :)


Have a wonderful week,

On Thursday, we will work our way into pre-fix and suffixes. We will have sentence dictation on Wednesday and we will continue to work on our lowercase letters in our Handwriting Without Tears books. Next week we will begin our very last unit in literacy which will be our research unit. More information to follow. 

New books went home today as well as a new reading log. March's reading log is due THIS Friday, April 5.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Hopefully it will feel a lot like Spring this week as we get ready for Spring Break.  

Welcome to our Poetry week. This week the boys and girls will learn all about different types of poetry as they learn about couplets and rhyming words.  They will also learn about acrostic poetry as they use the word SPRING to make their poems.  You will see these adorable poems in your child's portfolio at the end of the school year.

Today we had our first real sentence dictation.  This will consist of me verbally saying a sentence to the students.  They will listen to this sentence and write it down the way they hear it. The objective is to have them use a capital letter, finger spaces, and punctuation at the end. Spelling is not part of the grade. Last week I sent home our first practice on sentence dictation in your child's white folder next week.  This was only practice and not worth a grade however the grade is there at the top of the sheet for you to see. Today's sentence dictation was worth a real grade. 

Spelling words: oa word family- coat, boat, float, soak, load, soap, stop, trip
Differentiated words: cried, dried, let's, while, know, knot, knee, knock

Spelling test Friday! READING LOGS ARE DUE APRIL 5th

Have a wonderful Spring Break,

It's so hard to believe that we only have two more weeks until Spring Break! We have so much learning to do before we head out for vacation.  This week we will learn about compound words. We of course have a lot of fun projects and centers to help with these words.   At the end of the week we will take a quick assessment to ensure we know compound words.

This week we will also write in our journals as we use 2 compound words, a synonym and noun, verb, and adjective.  It will be great to see how their writing has come so far since the beginning of kindergarten. 

New books came home today for some groups in your child's homework folder which means they have began new levels in our reading group.  These books do NOT need to be returned on Friday.

We will have sentence dictation on Thursday. A practice sheet went home today for a reference as to how it will be graded. 

Lowercase letters are underway in our HWT books. Please help your child form their letters the right way. 

Spelling test Friday: long a word family- game, page, race, tape, name, shake, tame, animal.
Differentiation group: sign, tiny, hole, waves, current, electric, digit, round.

Have a wonderful week,

This week in literacy we will celebrate Dr. Seuss by making hats and watching a short bio on his life. On Tuesday we will complete a short St. Patrick's Day writing assignment that will be displayed on the board outside our classroom. In the middle of the week, my kindergarten class will begin sentence dictation.  This is when I say a complete sentence to them and they write it down using what we've learned to make a complete sentence. 

Homework:




  1. Please help your child complete their reading log throughout the month. This reading log is not due until after spring break, Friday, 4/5. Please help them find a quiet place to read any material that inspires them to build a love for reading. Also, please make sure they are reading books that are level appropriate for your child.
