A Peek Into Reading Group

For Reading Group these last two weeks, we read a poem together about a child who likes to climb trees. The kindergartners learned about how poems have rhythm, so while I read we clapped to the beat of the poem.

The group participated in activities such as drawing what the child saw while she was up in the tree, writting their own poem, and writting down what question they would ask a character from previous stories.

A Peek Into Next Week

Academic Enrichment — Cuyahoga Falls Campus — Week Of 12/17/2018

Lesson:
Intro to Decimals (unit, ten, hundred, and thousand) and the 9 tray. The 9 Tray purpose(s):

Direct
To make the child familiar with the different categories of numbers, especially with regard to reading the symbols.  To give the child the wording of large numbers

Indirect
For the hierarchy of numbers, that is, that while the significant figure are always from 1 to 9, it is the place they occupy in the complex number which gives them the importance of 1, 10, 100 or 1000.
For the fact that in a large number made up of two or more categories, the zero merely shows an empty place. That is, that one of the categories is lacking (in 1065, for instance, the hundreds are missing).
For the fact that only 9 of each category are necessary to form any number.

 

 

Handwriting:
We practiced our cursive pit, big, fist, tick.

 

Cultural Subjects:

A Peek Into Reading Group

With Ms. Faith

The last story the kindergartners listened to was The Fire Cat. The story was about a cat who got into trouble a lot and didn’t have any friends. One day he chases a little cat up into a tree, and ends up getting stuck. A fireman comes to rescue him and ends up taking him to the fire house to become a fire cat.

Throughout the story the group was able to participate in discussion, share their opinions, and practice reading parts of the story aloud. They also completed comprehension activities that went along with the story.

The students are sharing their drawings of the fire cat chasing smaller cats
