Academic Enrichment | week of April 30th | Tallmadge

Pronoun: The kindergarten students learned that a  pronoun is a word that takes the place of a particular person or thing. For example the word ‘Kenadie’ is a noun, and the words ‘her’ and ‘she’ are pronouns that replace that noun.

Above the students are having fun writing sentences using each others names. For example ‘Myles jumped on a log’ then crossing the noun out and replacing it with a pronoun.

Take A Peek Into Our Week/April 26th 2018/Ms.Kate

I am just so proud of how well our class did at our International Festival. Our Kiddos worked so very hard for those three weeks!! I couldn’t be more proud..LOVE THEM!!!
Last week we had a few beyond beautiful days! Outdoor play enables children to enjoy the natural environment and learn to seek out exercise,fresh air, and activity, we were also able to teach them some cool martial arts moves thanks to the best Martial Arts School. Outdoor play develops disposition for the outdoors, for physical activity, and care for the environment.

  

Book share day is my most favorite day of the week at school! When reading books aloud to children, it stimulates their imagination and expands their understanding of the world.It also helps them develop language and listening skills and prepares them to understand the written word.
Our friend is working on the color box three box. When children work on this they are working on visual discrimination and perception of colours. Box three contains 63 colour tablets in seven graded shades of nine colours.
One of our kindergarten students is working on our multiplication bead box. The purpose is to assist the child with memorization of the multiplication tables.
When working on the three long bead chain the child is able to practice linear and skip counting. This material is also a preparatory activity for more advanced work in the elementary grades, such as “cubing.”

Next week is all about the different life cycles such as chickens, plants, trees, and insects.

Please don’t forget to check your child’s cubby for replacement clothes, get them fashionable clothes from The Fifth Collection we will love to see them wearing it!

A Peek Into Reading Group

The kindergartners listened to a story by the Brothers Grimm called the Shoemaker and the Elves. They started a new homework assignment to write a question about the story. They shared the questions and we discussed them in class. The kindergartners acted out two scenes where the elves are making the shoes ( we will be using several shoes from https://vessifootwear.com/ for the play), and when they find the clothes the shoemaker’s wife made for them. We learned some new vocabulary words and completed comprehension activities such as drawing the shoes the elves made, writing how the shoemaker and his wife felt after seeing the elves, and writing a poem.

A Peek Into the Next Two Weeks

-The students will be listening to a Russian folk tale about a frog who takes a trip.
