A great learning tool that your child can use at home is
i-Ready. We have been using it at school to learn Reading and Math skills. The goal is to work on i-Ready for 30 to 45 minutes in each subject throughout the week, taking breaks when needed. Your child will be excited to show you this website!
As always, please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you for all that you are doing!!!
Hi K Families!
I hope that all of you are safe and healthy! Thank you so much for working together at home! Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns! We can keep communicating on the Remind App, by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, and now on this Kindergarten Class Web Page. :)
Hi Kindergarten Families,
I was just on a Zoom meeting with the other teachers at MBTA. We are going to try a K Zoom meeting next week! :)
Please let me know if you need anything...school supplies, food, books to read.
We will get through this together!
Hi Kindergarten Team,
Today is Monday, April 6, 2020. I know that you are going to keep working in your learn at home packet this week. You have been doing a great job with that! We are also going to focus a lot on the subject of Religion this week by learning about Holy Week. And, guess what? You already started learning about Holy Week yesterday when you watched the video about Palm Sunday. :)
Holy Week is the week before Easter, and it started yesterday on Palm Sunday. During Holy Week, I will send your families links to videos so that we can learn more about these very special days. Remember how much Jesus loves you and wants you to love each other!
Good Morning Kindergarten!
Today is Sunday, April 5, 2020. We are still in the season of Spring. One sign of Spring is the birds I hear chirping outside of my window. :)
Today is a special day as we get closer to Easter. It is Palm Sunday. Palm Sunday is also called The Triumphal Entry. I am going to send 2 links to your families on Remind or email. One link will connect to a video about Palm Sunday. Did you know that Jesus rode into a town called, Jerusalem, on a donkey? That is just one key detail in the story about Palm Sunday. Please watch the video to learn more key details. You can make a word web when you are done watching. The main idea/topic is.....Palm Sunday. Put that in the middle.
The other link will connect you to a Palm Sunday Mass that you and your family can watch together. Thank you to Elizabeth's family for sharing this information with us!
I hope that you enjoy time with your families today learning about Jesus and Palm Sunday! We love and miss you!
Happy Sunny Morning!
It might feel like Spring weather today! :)
If we were in school, today we would have Music class. I found a video that you can watch today about Music. I hope you like it! :)
Parents: The link is on Remind and/or in your email. Thank you!!!
Good Morning Kindergarten,
Today is Wednesday, April 1, 2020. You know what that means...you can watch the Jack Hartmann April video on YouTube! Yay!!! After you watch it, make a list of the events (things that happen) in April. Remember to give your list a title. "Events in April" is one idea for a title. You can use a different title if you want.
I know that our class always has more than one idea because we are great thinkers! Remember to use your best Kindergarten writing. One event that isn't in the video is Spirit Wear Day. This Friday, April 3, is Spirit Wear Day. Please wear your blue MBTA shirt while you are learning at home. I would love to see pictures of your April list and you wearing your blue MBTA shirt!
Remember how special you are! Mrs. Diaz, Mrs. Meyer, and I miss and love you!
Hi K Team,
Today is Monday, March 30, 2020. We are back to learning at home! :)
Remember how we talk about Monday mornings being hard sometimes?
This Monday morning is after Spring Break so it might feel a little extra hard. That is OK if you feel that way! Just remember how smart you are and remember that Kindergarteners can do hard things! Instead of "hard", let's use the vocabulary word, "challenging." Who is up for the challenge? WE ARE!!! :)
Hi K Team,
Today is Friday, March 20, 2020. That is a pretty fun date sentence. It just has 2s and 0s. Make sure when you are learning today that you remember to take brain and body breaks. Everybody needs those. Jack Hartmann and GoNoodle have great movement videos. I just watched Poppin' Bubbles on GoNoodle. :)
Dr. Saccaro has named today - Finish Up Friday. What does that mean?
At 2:00 today, whether you are finished or not, put your pencils down, know that you tried your best, high five your teachers at home, and start Spring Break!!!!!
You have worked hard! I will be enjoying my Spring Break at home just like you. Have fun and love each other as much as we love you!!!
Hi Kindergarten Team,
Today is March 19, 2020. Happy first day of Spring! Look at this sign of Spring I found when I was taking my garbage out. Yes, teachers have chores, too. :)
Challenge: Tell someone at home the names of the 4 weather seasons and write them down.
Then, blow their minds (idiom), and tell them the Church season we are in.
Here are 2 clues: It begins with the letter "L" and helps us prepare for Easter.
Mrs. Diaz, Mrs. Meyer, and I miss you!!!
