Mrs. Trujillo’s Turtles April 2017 Newsletter

With only a little over 30 days to go until summer break, our tiny turtles are working very hard to reach their end of Kindergarten goals! 


Our big idea in this unit  is, knowing about patterns and structures. Our Module A goals are; Readers will identify different types of literary texts, Writers will state and support an opinion about a book, and Learners will demonstrate understanding of various patterns in the world around them. We will be reading The Tiny Seed, by Eric Carle and Jack's Garden, by Henry Cole. We will be working on opinion writing this unit and will continue focusing on building our vocabulary within the books. We will also continue practicing our sight words, guided reading in small groups, and reading independently.

We are encouraging students to write as much independently as they can now. , We do so by having them sound out the words they are writing and put down what they are hearing, use the words they know like their sight words and words from around the room. We are reminding them to start with a capital letter in their sentences, put spaces between their words, and end with a punctuation mark.


In our new math Module we will be learning to recognize that when we are counting we can group the numbers by 10 first then see how many ones are left over. Making counting an easier and faster process. So if there were 12 straws they would say there are 10 ones and 2 ones. We will be working on composing and decomposing numbers from 11-20, and practice writing those teen numbers. We will also continue counting to 100 by ones, and also counting to 100 by tens. 


Please send your student with a light jacket or sweater, as it is still a little chilly in the mornings.

Water bottles can be sent in for students to access throughout the day.

Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday.

If your student is absent their work to make up will be sent home to be completed and returned.
