Kathleen Baliga Web Pages

Welcome to Kindergarten!   

Week of: March 9th- March 13th 

Hello Families of Kindergarten. You can use this webpage to see our weekly activities in our classroom. Please check your child's communication folder (Green Folder) for any important information and return the folder to school daily.

Ice Cream will only be available every other Friday. I will post the next Ice Cream date as soon as I am informed.

I will be assessing students this week for our Report Cards, which will be distributed next Tuesday, March 17th. 

Religion- This week we will discuss Lent as a time to grow in Love for God and others. We will work on a Lenten journal that we will be keeping throughout the season as we discuss ways to "do something" during this season. We will attend Mass with the school community on Friday. All are welcome! 

Literacy and Language Development- This week we will learn the High Frequency words: one, two, three, four, and five. We will discuss consonant blends (two consonants next to one another who sounds that blend together when reading) and practice reading words with blends. We will also practice telling sequence of stories as we read. Please practice this skill at home as you read at night. 

In handwriting we will begin to write lowercase letters q, x, z, and will practice writing words and sentences with these letters. We are also practicing writing our first and last names using upper and lowercase letters, please practice at home! 

Math- We will begin Topic 11: Decomposing Numbers 11 to 19. We will review and assess next week. 

Science- We will discuss habitats and different animals who live in different places. Students will work with a partner to draw a picture of a specific habitat and will find pictures of animals who live in that habitat when we go to the Computer Lab on Wednesday.    

Please view your child's Green Folder for other information about our classroom.
