    I am teaching Pre-K, and I was wondering if someone could tell me exactly what you are working on in your kindergarten class at this moment. Thanks a bunch!

    I was just working on lesson plans for the week. We will be doing a short unit on Dr. Seuss for Monday, then we will focuse the rest of the week on letter I, measurement, sight words, and writing short sentences using our sight words. Hope this helps!

    Right now we are working on the letter Vv. For a science experiment we are going to created a volcano. Lots of fun!! We are also using sight words in sentences. Most of my kids can write 1 or 2 sentences on a topic....some can write several sentences. In Math we are ending our unit on time and money and starting addition (yeah!). In science we are beginning our unit on nonliving and living, the needs of living things. We are doing a unit on community places and helpers in reading and social studies.

    Starting addition and subtraction, continuing word families (we will be doing this the rest of the year). Writer's work shop (Lucy Calkins). We will be studying spring, plants, insects, and farm for the next month or so in science and our theme study. We will also be working some blends and reviewing sight words and previously learned word families. I am also starting some letter writing lessons because we are taking a field trip to the post office right before Mother's Day and I know they will need several weeks of practice with letter writing. We have touched on it a little with morning message and with some of the books we have read, but I am going to try to do one major lesson a week on writing letters and open up a new letter writing center. I am focusing a lot on writing outside of writer's workshop in LA. We are doing some fictional writing, descriptive papers, and reading response in addition to writer's w/s.
