Welcome to Mrs. Griswold’s class website! On this page you will be able to find our weekly newsletters, monthly homework boards, weekly school news, and a few updates on what we are learning in class. Please always feel free to reach out via e-mail with any questions.
This month in science we will be starting a unit called: Plant and Animal Secrets. This unit helps students develop the concept that animals and plants need things in order to survive, and their lives are all about meeting those needs… it’s the secret to why they do the many strange and wonderful things that they do! Knowing how they meet their needs can even help students find plants and animals near them.
In social studies, we will be creating a book that takes a look back on our lives and how we made it to kindergarten!
In math, We are wrapping up how to compose and decompose numbers 11 to 19. We will then be working on measurement. We will be comparing length, height and weight.
In literacy, our focus has now moved to one letter a week. We will now focus on a letter throughout the week, identifying words that begin with that letter, correctly writing that letter, and identifying it and understanding what sound or sounds it might make. We have been focusing on blends and are now learning about digraphs. We are focusing on six new sight words each week.Make sure to check the homework board for a list of sight words that we have learned, and will be learning throughout the month. Make sure to practice these at home and try to read everyday!
In religion, our focus is learning about Lent and the Stations of the Cross.
