Kindergarten Updates





Fourth Six Weeks Kindergarten Work:  

We reinforce each activity with different types of indoor and outdoor games whenever possible. For example with spelling we play horse using his spelling words, or throw the baseball back and forth with each of us spelling a word before we can throw.  We also put pudding in zip lock bags and use our fingers to trace out our spelling words. We also google and find pictures of the words or actions in a pi, making a scavenger hunt out of it. For our sentences we like to act them out. For example if the sentence is “Go pet the dog, please.” He will say the sentence as he goes and pets the god. So when creating his sentences I try and think of things he can do after he reads them to reinforce what he read. I will also write the separate words on note cards and hide them throughout the house. I will write the main sentence on the dry erase board and Drake will search for each word in the sentence and place it under the correct word on the board. When he has found them all we read the sentence together and then he will hid and I will find. For math I always get the items out so he can physically handle them. If I am adding 5 cans and 2 cans I will get 7 cans out for him. It really helps him if he can read it, see it and touch it. I also will write all his words on note cards and will lay the out and we will make sentences from them or I will say find me all the words that begin with “t” or end with “p”. Find me “see”. He gets high fives for each correct one or sometimes an M&M for each correct one as a bonus snack. 

Spelling words:
big, go, has, not, on, said, in, are, and, love, do, that, of, look, you, me, it, with, she, an, he, for, to, see, my, we, have, is, the, at, can, like, am, I

Daily Sentence:  
We have been working with learning the difference between the different types of sentences: exclamatory, (shows strong emotion) interrogative (asks a question, ends in a question mark), declarative (makes a statement, punctuated with a period), and imperative (command or polite suggestion, ends in a period or exclamation mark).
The big dog is barking. (Declarative)
It would look better over there. (Imperative)
Can I go to the party? (Interrogative)
Do you have a big brother or sister? (Interrogative)
He has it in his hand. (Declarative)
The dog is not here. (Declarative)
She is not with me! (Exclamatory)
Who has cards for our class? (Interrogative)
Close the door. (Imperative)
Please be quite. (Imperative)
My book is on the table. (Declarative)
The shoes are on my feet. (Declarative)
Can I sit on the mat? (Interrogative)
Turn in the lights! (Exclamatory)
We have PE outside. (Declarative)
We have lunch at the table. (Declarative)
How many cats do we have? (Interrogative)
Here is your blanket! (Exclamatory)
