Kindergarten Countdown!
Wow!
We are nearing the end of another school year!
We have grown so much!
​We can write several sentences in our journals and tell great stories! We can count to 100 and add numbers using number bonds. We have made great friends and learned what school is all about! Hip-hip hooray! I will miss you!
Come back and visit next year!
XXOO Mrs. Bonifacio

A letter is just a letter all by itself and a word is letters put together!
Add, add, addition.
Add, add, addition.
Put them all together now!
Repeat...
Come on girls and boys.
Let me hear some noise.
A plus means more, more, more.
A plus means more, more, more.




Blending and Segmenting



A phoneme is the smallest phonetic unit in a language that is capable of conveying a distinction in meaning, like the m in mat and the b in bat. Phonemic awareness is a critical component of reading instruction. Research has found that blending and segmenting phonemes are two critical skills that must be taught and practiced.


Phonemic awareness is auditory and does not involve words in print. Do not show your child the list of words.

BLENDING:
1. Tell your child, "We are going to put sounds together to make words. I'll tell you the sounds and you put them together to make a word."
2. You say "/m/ /o/ /m/" (the sounds not the letters)
3. Your child responds with "MOM!"
4. Practice a few words on the list each night.

SEGMENTING:
1. Tell your child, "Listen for the separate sounds in these words. I'll tell you a word, and you try to tell me all the sounds in it."
2. You say "MOM". (the whole word)
3. Your child responds with
/m/ /o/ /m/.
4. Practice a few words on the list each night.






Number poems

1 One is fun!
2 Around and back on a railroad track....2, 2!
3 Around a tree, around a tree, that's the way to make a three.
4 Down and over and down once more that's the way to make a four.
5 Fat old five goes down and around put a hat on top.
6 Roll a hoop and make a loop, that's the trick to make a six.
7 Across the sky and down from heaven that's the way to make a seven.
8 Make an S but do not wait go back up and close the gate.
9 A hoop and a line that makes a nine.
10 Number one down zero then that's the way to make a ten.

Come on everybody let's get this done...the numbers in the teens they start with a one...11 is a one and a one and 12 is a one and a two...

Come on everybody you know it's true the numbers in the 20's they start with a 2. 20 is a 2 and a 0, 21 is a 2 and a 1...
Take it away, take it away, take it away now!
Tune: 10 Little Indians
First, then second, third, fourth, fifth.
First, then second, third, fourth, fifth.
First, then second, third, fourth, fifth.
That's the ordinal numbers!
We learned that we use spaghetti size spaces between letters in words and meatball size spaces between words in our writing. You can practice this at home and use your best itallian accent!
In a combination class, younger students are provided with a preview of the upcoming year and older students are provided with a review of the previous year. In the history of combination classes the older students also have a way of taking the younger students under their wing and helping guide them with their work. The benefit in explaining class work to another student actually increases that student's retention rate to approximately 90% versus if they had only heard it in lecture form, in which case retention rate is approximately 5%. Both younger and older students have a history of interacting in a phenomenal way, creating a social bond that allows them all to benefit from combination classes.
