Welcome to Kindergarten! My name is Mrs. Juliana Cruz and I am the Kindergarten class teacher. We are going to have a fun and exciting year in Kindergarten! I am so excited to watch you learn and grow throughout this school year.
Week of September 19, 2022
Last week we successfully completed our first full week of Kindergarten.
This week our class will continue to review the school and class rules, and fire drill safety rules. We will practice writing our names using the lined paper in our green notebooks as well as practicing basic handwriting skills using lined paper. The HMH Into Reading program will be introduced. In our first Module Curious About Kindergarten, we will be reading stories about school, introducing the letters of the alphabet, and beginning to learn sight words.
This week we will be learning the letters Aa, Bb, Cc, Dd, and Ee, as well as the sight word the. We will review the color words red, blue, and yellow, and learn the color words green, orange, and purple.
We will be introduced to our Savvas Envision Math program in Math class. Counting, identifying, and writing the numbers 1, 2, and 3 will be our focus this week.
In Religion class, the Christ in Us book will be introduced and we will learn that God made us and we learn about God in the Bible.
We will begin using our IPads this week and prepare for the beginning of the year I-Ready assessment.
