Welcome to Mrs. Pugliese's Kindergarten Class
(where we EMBRACE friendship!)
K-2

WEEK OF: April 16, 2018

Last week in Kindergarten was a busy, fun week! We started off the week at Mass on Monday with our prayer pals. We practiced our faith throughout the week by focusing on our bible story titled, "He is Risen," discussing how Jesus loves us, reading our Easter is Good chapter in our religion book, and by celebrating our Easter party and egg hunt on Friday.
In reading, we focused on how animals are alike and different, and in math, we finished Chapter 9: Subtraction, and began Chapter 10: Numbers Beyond 10. We colored umbrellas with dot paint for our classroom bulletin board, and we created spring bunny projects by decorating bunnies and by writing about our favorite spring things.
The students prayed, learned, and played! It was a great week.

Looking ahead to this week...

In religion, we continue in the Easter season!
This week, students will continue to learn that this liturgical season brings us new life. Students will read Chapter 19: Seeds are Good. We will learn about how spring brings us new life, including some of God's creations such as beautiful flowers. 
Students will also make Easter crosses in art and will make "He Lives" projects with prayer pals.

In Fundations, every morning, we review all sight words and letters that we have learned so far this year in Kindergarten.
The sight words include:
I, can, the, we, see, a, like, to, and, go, you, do, my, are, he, with, is, little, she, was, for, have
 
The letters include: t, b, f, n, m, i, u, c, o, a, g, d, s, e, r, p, j, l, h, k, v, w, y

* use white boards and dry erase markers/erasers to form the letter "x"
