Transitional- Kindergarten Magic

FEBRUARY 2020

 

CURRICULUM FOCUS:

Curriculum themes for this month will be as follows:

  • Ground Hog Day

  • Lunar New Year

  • Valentine’s Day/ 100th day of school

  • President’s Day

     

*Reader’s Workshop:  We have started reader’s workshop in class.  The children will be learning the patterns that are in the books and paying special attention to the pictures.  They will learn that the pictures can sometimes tell more of the story than just the words on the page.

 

*Writer’s Workshop:  We have started writer’s workshop in class. We will be focusing on writing a small moment.  This means that they take a big idea (Disneyland, weekend, school) and choose only one part to write about.  This allows for them to expand and add detail to their stories.  This also helps keep them focused on one moment, which will help them in the later grades. We have also focused on how to sound out our words and write down what we hear and leaving spaces between our words. 

 

*Math:  We have been working on counting, writing our numbers to 20, and the concept of addition and subtraction.  We have also been doing a lot of work on the numbers 11-20. 

 

REMINDERS & UPDATES:

 

*100th Day of School:  We will be celebrating the 100th day of school on February 6th!  It seems unbelievable that we have already spent so much time together.  We will do activities to celebrate the number 100!!

 

* Literacy Development Presentations: Parents enrolled at ABC Magic Moments are invited to attend our second presentation which will be held on

Thursday 20th February at 6.30 pm - Please save the date, more information to follow.

 

 

 

 

 

*Valentine’s Day!

 We will have our Valentine’s Day celebration on Friday 14th February, please have your child wear red, white or pink! Please do not purchase commercial Valentine’s Day cards for your child to share with friends or send sweets or candy. For the month of February we will be practicing how to write letters.  What better way to have real life practice than to write Valentine’s to all our friends!  We will write and decorate cards for each other and then enjoy our cards on valentine’s day.. We will also celebrate with some fun projects and activities.

 

* ABC Magic Moments will be closed on Monday 17th February in observation of Presidents’ Day.

 

* We will celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday, on Friday 28th February. Please have your child wear Pajamas and/or CRAZY socks on this dayJ

 

*Please have a solid plan in case your child does become ill, this will help everyone, especially your child. By helping us observe good health standards, you will not only be protecting your child but also other children and teachers here at ABC Magic Moments. Please notify us by 9.00 a.m. if your child will not be in attendance* Parents PLEASE keep your child home for observation if s/he has had fever within the last 24 hours. It is important that we work together to keep all children and teachers healthy!

 

Choose Love

 

We have completed the first two parts of our choose love program and review them often to remind us of how we can lead happy, healthy lives.  We took a break in January to learn about mindfulness and how we can be more mindful in our lives.  The children will learn 4 key ingredients to helping choose love.

  1. Courage

  2. Gratitude

  3. Forgiveness

  4. Compassion

We will continue the next two ingredients in the coming months.
