Transcript of "Presentation for parents_made_by_teachers[1]"

  1. 1. Welcome to Beginner’s Night! Helping your child become a Bobcat!
  2. 2. Daily Schedule… 8:00-3:00: Instructional Day (7 hours) 2 hours of Literacy: Shared Reading, Writing, Word Work, and Independent Reading. 2 hours of math (Investigations and workshop) 45 min. of Science/Social Studies 45 min. of Specials: Art, P.E. Music, Media, Computer 30 min. of Lunch; 30 min. of Physical Activity
  3. 3. 3 Basic Rules Be a learner. Be safe. Be respectful.
  4. 4. Ready to Read! Before starting Kindergarten in August:  Write their name  Identify capital and lowercase letters  Can read some sounds
  5. 5. Learning to Read First we learn Letter I.D.  Next we learn the sounds
  6. 6. Learning to Read… Then we’ll use the  Over the course of the year we will be learning many new sight sounds we’ve learned to words. Sight words are words blend . your child will recognize immediately, without having to sound them out. cC A N n a
  7. 7. Leveled Readers… Leveled readers are books designed to match a child to the reading level that suits their ability. Each classroom has 2 hours of literacy per day, where students are receiving instruction in Balanced Literacy: Reading, Writing, Shared Reading, and Word Work. No matter where your child starts, we will meet them where they are, and go on from there.
  8. 8. Leveled Readers… Leveled Reader: C is where kindergarten students are expected to be by the end of the year. This type of text has 1-2 sentences per page. The pages will have a lot of sight words, and then some words they will need to decode.
  9. 9. Stages of Writing…Scribbling Marks on paper represent an idea.
  10. 10. Stages of Writing…Letter-like Identifiable picture and letters aresymbols imitated.
  11. 11. Stages of Writing…Strings of Writes some letters, but notletters matching most sounds.
  12. 12. Stages of Writing…Beginning Uses the beginning sound toSounds represent a word. Writes left to right and often reverses letters.
  13. 13. Stages of Writing…Consonants Include beginning and endingrepresent sounds and some vowels. Useswords sight words correctly.
  14. 14. Stages of Writing…Initial, Middle, Writes more than one sentenceand Final with spaces between words.Sounds “Readable” writing.
  15. 15. Stages of Writing…Transitional Writing is “readable”. Uses phonetic spelling for unfamiliar words. Uses capitals and periods correctly.
  16. 16. Young Mathematicians! Before starting Kindergarten in August it would be helpful for your child to know the following:  Identify and write the numbers 1-10  Count from 1-10  Colors  Basic Shapes (square, triangle, circle, rectangle)
  17. 17. Math Summed Up… Our math framework includes five main categories:  Number Sense  Patterns, Relationships, & Functions  Geometry, & Measurement  Data Analysis  Numerical & Algebraic Operations
  18. 18. Number Sense… It’s more then just counting!  Number relationships  Ordering numbers  Count accurately from any starting point  Counting backwards  End of Year Expectation: Count, Write & Recognize 1-30  Count backwards from 10  Ordinal numbers 1-10 (First, Second, Third, etc…)
  19. 19. Patterns, Relationships, & Functions… Patterns are something we see in everyday life, and they help kindergarteners understand the underlying structure of things. Patterns also help us make predictions about what will come next.
  20. 20. Student Patterns… AB pattern, where the student  AABB pattern, the top portion has identified the UNIT in the was completed as a class, the pattern (the part of the pattern bottom independently. that repeats).
  21. 21. Geometry & Measurement… Shape, size , attributes. We are  Measuring and describing in not only learning about shapes, non-standard units. Here we but how shapes make up other used snap cubes to measure shapes, and objects in our ourselves! world.
  22. 22. Data Analysis For data analysis, we complete  We also take many class, and individual graphs. surveys, and create our own to We also use the calendar collect data on our peers. throughout the year, and track the weather.
