Kindergarten is just flying by! It is hard to believe we are in the month of March already.
With the arrival of spring in the very near future, the children of KA are growing and
preparing for the coming months of school.
The boys and girls have been sharpening their reading skills by practicing their sight
words and word families. They have so much fun learning new rhyming words each
week and creating fun activities and art projects to illustrate their knowledge. Our
Superkids Reading Program is in full swing! The children have now met all of their
Superkid friends, and are using what they have learned to begin to blend sounds to
read short books and passages.
Math has been so much fun! The children have been learning many different ways to
add, subtract, and illustrate numbers up to 20. The children love having hands-on
opportunity to showcase their growing knowledge in math through the use of unifix
cubes, blocks, and tiles, which are used daily to accompany math lessons.
With the start of the Lenten season upon us, the children are learning about the
Stations of the Cross. We began Lent on Ash Wednesday by attending Mass and then
receiving ashes. The children learned the symbolism of the ash cross and then created
Ash Wednesday self-portraits. We have been enjoying attending The Stations of Cross
as a school community.
In Science, the children have been learning about oviparous animals-animals that
hatch from and lay eggs. The students have been sorting and classifying animals
based on different characteristics. In Social Studies, the children have been learning
about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. We are also learning how to tell
cardinal directions on a map and how to use a map legend. Kindergarten is so much
