February Curriculum Update

During the month of February here at NREC we will be focusing on these skills in Language Arts: the letters Y y, X x, Q q, and Z z. Our sight words are the following, there, use, an, each, which, she, do and how.  At this stage in their intellectual development, kindergarteners have a difficult time with the letters Q and U. We have incorporated a fun activity, our annual Q and U Wedding which occurs on Wednesday, February 10th.  This allows the students to know that the letter u always follows q in a word… it should be really fun for our students!

Keywords or phrases that our students will hear their teachers using in the classrooms are long vowels, short vowels blends and digraphs such as st, sp,sn and sw, will be taught and we will continuing with digraphs.

Our students will continue working on non-fiction and fiction, sentence writing, rhyming, sequencing, comparing and contrasting, beginning sounds, ending sounds and syllables. We are building on what our students learned in January, by introducing information writing. Our Language Arts projects will be to read books about bears during the first two weeks of February (Feb.1-12) and reading about penguins the following two weeks (Feb. 16-25). We will then discuss and find information within the text, put in sequential order and find major events of the stories to write about.

This is a big month for our children, as we will be celebrating their 100th day of kindergarten on Wednesday, February 3rd, which is always an enriching educational day for them. We will continue to count from 1 to 100 and recognize numbers when reading and writing.

In mathematics we will be working with the concepts of subtraction. We will use synonyms such as take away, less, difference, and minus to describe this concept. Of course words associated with the opposite of subtraction, such as add, addition, altogether, more, sum, plus, total and combine will be mentioned as well. We will be graphing candy hearts during the second week of February when we will be celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday, February 12th.

As graphing is an important mathematic area that we focus on in kindergarten, students will be graphing their predictions whether Ohio’s groundhog “Buckeye Chuck” will see his shadow on Groundhog’s Day. These ongoing activities of graphing, counting and understanding how graphs work, will better prepare our students for first grade.

In Science we will be focusing on day and night skies, and the different constellations and objects they see in the sky. Our students will be learning which animals hibernate (our bear theme) and an animal report will be completed by our students.

In Social Studies, we will be learning about more great American symbols, by discussing the Presidents of our great nation, past and present. As mentioned earlier, we will be covering Groundhog Day, 100th Day, Valentine’s Day, and Leap Year on Feb. 29th!
