Kindergarten Newsletter Week 17

Bible:

Why do we celebrate Christmas?

Math:

Comparing sets.  Here are the important English vocabulary words to use well:

Enough / not enough

More _(hats)___ than _(scarves)____

Fewer _(pencils)__ than __(erasers)__

Greater than / less than / the same as / equal to

Social Studies:

K’s can “describe the work that various workers do.”

K’s can “explain how wages are given in exchange for work.”

Here’s a good list of possible jobs that your child could consider researching for his/her Community Helper Speech in January.  This speech is going to need a simple costume, but it’s good to creatively use things from home and borrow odd toys from school or other friends.  Some students even like making their own props.  No need to go out purchasing extra things.

Please note:  In order to make good se of the research materials, we’ll try to get a different job for each student. It’s not a guarantee that your child will get to research his first choice or second choice, although I do all I can to give everyone a good selection.
