Kinderjungle News


Dear Families,
April is an exciting month! We will be learning all about plants, seeds, plant life cycle, soil and flowers.   
Our reading is going so great! I can't believe what awesome readers we have!!! Continue to try to read about 10 min a day and then adding more sight words to practice on flash cards. 
We are also hard at work with our writing. We have been working on writing about "small moments" that occur in our lives and also let our imaginations run wild with some fun fiction stories! We are attempting to write stories with a beginning, middle and end, with interesting characters and a setting.  In math we are working hard at addition, subtraction, graphing and identifying penny, nickel, dime and quarter coins and working on 2d and 3d shapes.  Help your little one out on your drives and ask them about the shapes they see around town. Be looking for addition and subtraction flash cards to come home to practice with.

What does a Kindergarten Student Look Like?

A Kindergarten Class is a group of five year old children, none of which look, act, think, behave, talk, or grow the same way.  Its members are all victims of a magical age during which they pass from four-year-old babies to five-year-old children. . It comes with assorted needs ranging from Kleenex to affection.  It has stars in it's eyes and loose teeth in its mouth;questions on its mind, and Band-aids on its knees; forgiveness in its heart and peanut-butter sandwiches in its lunch.
*A Kindergarten class is able to put more things on a teacher's desk during the first moment of school than any other class can accomplish in a full day.  Two bouquets of flowers, six wilted leaves, a cupcake, a pretty stone, three CD's, a favorite book turtle, and a broken Thermos.
*A Kindergarten Class is fond of big ice-cream sandwiches, movies, animal stories, and tales of how others lost their teeth and the reward gained.  It loves a teacher during the play period, disagrees with her when she takes a toy away, and loves her again when she smiles naturally.
*A Kindergarten Class is able to steal all of a ~teacher's time with just a little, evenly divided, unplanned effort. ~A skinned knee, lost lunch, broken zipper, chicken pox breakout, unties shoe, too small show, help requests and needed affection for one with a new brother, will fill the day nicely.
*A Kindergarten Class is eager to inform its teacher of all of the latest developments at home and abroad. She knows when every member of the family has a birthday, and gifts received thereupon.  She must look at every new pair of shoes, shirt, dress and new haircut.
*A Kindergarten Class spends much time on a teacher's feet, but more in her thoughts.  It can turn her stomach during lunch and her heart during dinner.  It spills paint on her dress and satisfaction on her soul.  It leaves her with a headache at three and greets her with a smile at eight.  It brings noise during the day and peace during the night.  It takes everything out of her, but gives more back when it leaves you a note on her desk written in poor manuscript but deepest feelings...I LOVE YOU
